Tying Up Loose Ends!

Hi, Darlene is not quite 100% yet, so she asked if I would please do this post to 'tie up some loose ends'. This 'bug' that Darlene and her family have been fighting is one strong wooly bugger - it just hangs around making everyone it attacks feel yucky and extremely tired. Lots of napping going on around here! ZZZZZzzzzZzzzzzzzzzzZZZzzzzzzzzzzz

My name is Snippet!!!!
Recently we asked if you would please leave us some ideas for a name for me because Darlene was struggling to come up with something fitting. I think you'll all agree that Snippet fits - teehee - thank you Janet! (go visit Janet and take a look at her banner - there's a "Joy" lookalike. My friends Thimbles, Joy, Miss Millie, Bea Bunny and I will gather together soon for a 'family' portrait. Oh, that will be so much fun, I can hardly wait.

On Friday, Darlene spent the day in the quiet solitude of her sewing room assembling the 'guts' of her "Rabbits Prefer Embroidery" project. Hopefully this week she'll feel like prepping the borders for applique. Sadly, it won't get done for Easter but it's not for lack of trying!

Yesterday she made a mad dash to her local quilt store with her list of needed border fabrics. Last night she added the borders to the Dutch Treat quilt - it's officially a flimsy. :-)

Then today after a 3 hour nap (she was feeling very tired and puny) she added the borders to her Whirligig quilt and it's now officially a flimsy, as well. Look closely - the red next to the outer border is a little peeper - isn't it cute. We think it really adds a little something to the whole thing

I hope you've enjoyed visiting and reading my report. :-) I especially hope that I haven't scared you off and that you'll be back to visit very soon!
In Friendship!

Snippet - you are adorable - and a very nice addition to the rest of the family! I know you'll be very happy there! Poor Darlene, sounds like she is really under the weather, but wait, how does she manage to do so much? You must be helping her a lot - what a good little Snippet you are! Please tell Darlene to feel better soon!
Cheers!

I love all three...rabbits prefer embroidery, dutch treat, and the whirlygig quilt! Hope you get to feeling better soon!

Kathie said...

Stina said...

Janet said...

Now I hope Darlene hasn't been over doing it with all this sewing going on despite being under the weather! Get better soon Darlene, you need to organise these rabbits for their Easter duties.
Good choices on the borders for whirlygig and the redwork rabbits have come alive with the reds.

Anne Heidi said...

Oh Snippet, Darlene is so lucky to have a good helper like you! The rabbit quilt is so cute, it will be fun to see it all done! The other two quilts are wonderful as well!

Stephanie said...

So glad Snippet is keeping us up to date on your progress. Sorry you're feeling funky. I sew when I'm sick too. Absolutely love all of your projects. Perfect tiny peek of red on your whirlygig quilts and oh the Bunnies quilts is so sweet. Feel better, that's an order.

Carol said...

Snippet you've done a great job helping Darlene! The bunny quilt is just awesome...I'm in love with Dutch Treat and the Whirlygig is out of this world...I think the little red border is just perfect...Darlene hope you're feeling better real quick.

Connie W said...

Wonderful quilt flimsies there :D and I hope Darlene is soon feeling better. Take care of her, Snippet, for she's a special friend.

Kaaren said...

Snippet, give Darlene a get well hug from me. My Gram used to say there's nothing that a cup of hot tea with lemon and honey can't cure. Gee, maybe you can even give it a stir with one of your carrot sticks.

Feel better soon.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Snippet - you sure had a lot to show off today. Wow! Are you sure you are not helping Darlene with all of her stitching? I don't think she could get all of that done by herself in her condition.

Quilt Hollow said...

Oh Snippet, she named you appropriately! I'm glad you are reporting on behalf of Darlene...but are you sure she is really sick because I see alot of accomplishments being made. Is she stitching while your posting?!! Please tell her that I think they are all fabulous! WOW...great borders for those flimsys!

Hi Snippet,

Love them both! That red border and cherry fabric is wonderful! Hope you are better very soon.

Eileen said...

Hope Darlene is feeling 100% soon. You did a good job Snippets.

Cathy said...

Wow, you got a lot done and while sick too! I really like your "Dutch Treat."

Millie said...

Snippet is so cute, but I have to admit I like to meat Miss Millie. You have got a lot done. The border is perfect for the Dutch quilt, sets off the blocks very nice. And the red work is gorgeous.
Hope you are feeling better soon!

Elaine Adair said...

Wow Snippet - your Mama is very creative even when she's a little under the weather! ALL those projects cause me some envey.

Hope spring and sunshine comes to all your household very soon.

Qubie said...

Snippet - great job on the post.

Dutch Treat quilt looks great. The colors of the Whirligig quilt is just fabulous. Hope Darlene feels better soon.

Quiltersal said...

Darlene: Hope you start feeling better soon. I hate feeling crummy when I want to sew or knit at the same time....hard to see what I'm doing! Hugs.

Yvonne said...

Being sick certainly hasn't kept you from being very productive. :) Wonderful quilts and very cute bunny! Hope you're feeling better!

Carrie P. said...

I love all your new quilt tops, but the windmills with the red "peeper" is my favorite!

I hope you are feeling better soon. Snippet did a excellent job of catching us up. I love the Bunny Hill pattern, I'm going to have to start that one soon.

Carol said...

I love the name Snippet, just perfect. Tell Darlene she gets more done when she's sick then some get done when they are feeling well. Can you also tell her I love her quilts. I'm sure you'll agree with me Snippet, the Rabbits Prefer Embroidery quilt is awesome.
