I couldn't motivate myself to do anything at all. I just wanted to hunker down under a quilt and sleep.
The hens hardly ventured out of their little house and the rabbit just sat and scowled (no change there). Have you ever heard a rabbit growl? I hadn't until we got Scruffy. He really doesn't like me. I had to hold him back with a broom so that I could reach into his pen and refill his food bowl.
The little Easter Gift bags are finished however,
I decided to add a bunny because I had bunnies on the brain. Despite the fact that I have my very own live Bunzilla - or perhaps because of the that - I wanted a cute one.
I couldn't find the original mini quilt pattern for the dimensions so I'm making a new one. It must be around somewhere. (note to self - organise your electronic and paper patterns better).
After a couple of cutting mishaps I had the mini-quilt ready to embroider. I always layer it up with wadding before I embroider if possible, as it gives more definition and hides any stray ends of thread.
So instead of a plain umbrella with raindrops a little spring bunny is sheltering underneath the brolly.
Complete with a few daffodils- I like the goose with the umbrella too!
So after a couple of busy days at work my mojo is reset. By Wednesday I'm on a mission. I've washed, ironed, vacuumed, cleaned the kitchen and made some broth for tonight. I'm going to jump in the shower and then settle down to some more appliquéd leaves while I'm waiting for John to pick me up for our evening clinic. Happy little bunny that I am in the knowledge that there is a lovely bottle of coffee porter waiting for me in the fridge when I get back.
Just before I go let me show you two pictures of some alstroemeria I bought at Aldi for £2.50
Taken on 25th February
