An Easter Finish and an Excellant Mail Week!





I loved Sew a Brown Bunny by IStitch from the moment I first saw it. In fact, I ordered the pattern immediately, but just stitched it this week. I finished it up on Wed. morning. This is finish #22 for the year. It is stitched on Legacy lugana by Picture this Plus, 32 ct. I used Vicky Claytons silks for my floss choices...They are Imperial Green 3333 and Quern Stones 5165. I made it into the little pillow this morning. The fabric that it is laying on is the fabric that it is backed with. Bunnies are special to me, because we raised rabbits while I was growing up & then my own children raised rabbits while they were growing up.
This week the mail lady has treated me wonderfully, thanks to three very dear ladies. First of all, I won a blog giveaway that Mouse had a while back. She sent me this beautiful Needle Pillow. It is finished so beautifully...thank you so much Mouse!
Second, I received these great acorn buttons from Tina....she saw my squirrel finish & thought these would go great on it & they will!!!! Thanks so much Tina.
Lastly, I received my exchange package from Pat. We were to create a scissor fob for our partner. She stitched this beautiful hummingbird fob for me & included all the other goodies in the picture.....she was spoiling me wonderfully!!! Thank you so much Pat!
Also this week, I have gotten all sorts of freebies in the mail that I have sent for. I have gotten back into couponing very much & sending for free samples....it is great to go out to the mail & see another package....I can remember for sure this week getting: Orville Redenbachers new microwave popcorn bowl, a small container of lady's deodorant, a small bottle of shampoo, a recycleable cup filled with Breva creamer coupons..one of which is for a free bottle, Tide stain release tablets, & a sample of men's shampoo. I think there were a few more, but I am drawing a blank right now.
I want to take this opportunity to wish each of you a very Blessed Easter...and thank you for supporting me thru my blog.....each of you is so important to me......

Your bunny pillow is the cutest, Shari--love the backing fabric for it, too...just perfect!

You received such cute things in the mail--it was your lucky week :) It's always nice to receive a package rather than just flat envelopes, isn't it?

Wishing you a joyful Easter, Shari!
