I have an upper respiratory virus to thank for finishing the applique on the Jump for Joy quilt:
Despite a pressing need for a good steam pressing, these bunnies make me so happy! And they’ve kept me pretty happy this week as I appliqued next to a feverish child. And now I have a bit of the virus…just enough to be uncomfortable, not enough to keep me from any of my responsibilities…which I get to carry out while uncomfortable. Does anyone have a lozenge?
Once again, this is Anne Sutton‘s design for Australian Quilters Companion. Hop on over to Anne’s Bunny Tales blog and fetch her free pattern for a punchneedle bunny.
I imagine that the bunnies are trying to jump over the ric rac fence to get to the lush vegetation on the other side:
Had to put the tallest fence on that side, don’tcha know.
You have seen Sue Spargo‘s new book, haven’t you?
Gorgeous! Gorgeous! And a new bag book is hot off the presses as well. Are there designers whose work you collect without question? In a reliable and very exciting way? Yes? I put Sue’s designs in that category. Without question. Hmm, I wonder if that’s a lot of pressure.
And something of a virtual “hot off the presses,” you’ve been to visit Sarah, right?
All right, off to find something for the throbbing in the corner of my eye.
