Easter in October

I know it isn't Easter but I have been taking pictures of some of my long-ago completed quilts so that I could post them on this blog. This bunny family hangs out on my couch for a couple of weeks around Easter every year. It always makes me smile. I tried to just use fabric I had on hand. But you all know how that goes.....the more you use your stash....the more you have. Don't know how that works. And my stash is mediocre compared to some of my friends. I tend to only buy when I know that I'm making something.....not just because I LOVE the fabric. However, I do have a couple of friends who clean out their rooms once in awhile and I find a bag of their scraps sitting on my front porch. One time I got a call from a neighbor saying there was a scantily dressed male on my front porch. Come to find out it was a bag from Abercrombie and Fitch ( with said male model on the front) filled with scrumptious fabrics. I think she may have been a bit jealous.



One year our Bee got together and had an Easter egg exchange. These Easter eggs were so much fun to make. These are the larger sized eggs. Somewhere in my sewing room I have a bunch of small ones too. Hopefully, one day I will find them....or maybe I added them to another quilt already. Memory fades. I found the border fabric and had to use it on this quilt. I love the rows of carrots.
Keep on quilting.....Lynda

Hi Linda. Thanks for visiting my blog, and the comments. They are always appreciated. I hope you enjoyed your visit and will come again?

I have to reply here to your comments as you don't have an email address that I can find. I will spend some time this evening looking at your blog, but I already know I love the rabbits!

Hi it's me again. I wanted to say there are some lovely quilts on your blog, almost all of which I would be happy to have in my house.

Hi Lynda!
I think October is the month when we really need some spring fabric and quilts. It's windy and raining outside, and Christmas with all the lovely and warm decorations is still far away. Thank you for sharing your wonderful rabbits!

Thank you, Lynda, for your kind thoughts!

You know, I have 3 major motivations for the exercising: my health (don't really want to be a diabetic), I'm in a group of 14 incredible nice people with similar issues (could not done this alone), and I want to be around for grandson as he grows up. I also am incredible stubborn and driven when I make up my mind about something; just ask my parents who raised me...

When I felt sorry for myself yesterday, I really really wanted chocolate though:-)
