Whatca Workin on Wednesday

Good Wednesday Morning all. I haven't had as much time as I would have liked to work on MY fun stuff but I did manage to get a few things accomplished.

First I did get some bunnies cut out and sewn. Now I just need to Chocolate them up and work on a grouping for them. I had seen chocolate bunnies on both Leslie's and Rondell's blog and couldn't wait to try them. Here's my interpretation. Thanks gals for the inspiration.

I also didn't have enough carrots to compliment the bunnies. So I cut out some more. I just need to get to JoAnn's today as I'm all out of orange thread.

I saved the best for last. I found this pattern on Retro Mama's blog. I used some of my vintage feedsack fabric to make these eggs and fell in love with them. I can't wait to pull out some more scraps and make tons more. I have a couple of gals form my Feedsack Club coming in from Canada this week so I thought I'd have a small gift for them too.

My goal was to use up some things I have here and not purchase anything to make my "goodies". So far so good. I do have some orange thread in my jar in a previous post maybe I'll see if there's any orange in there. The bunnies were made with old feedsack ammunition bags. As you can see they are a cream colored with red lettering. The red lettering I turned to the inside. All the orange fabric was left over from a Halloween quilt top I made. I wish I could say that everything is "Made in the USA" but stuffing and some of the orange fabric is not. The bags and the old thread was certainly made here. Of but I digress to another topic.

Time for me to get painting. Yes unfortunately it has taken longer than expected. I am today changing the ceiling color. But once I paint the ceiling I can begin putting things back. We will be adding stenciling and wainscoting but I need to get this room back together for company coming. I'll post pictures once I get everything done.

It's pouring rain here so at least I can enjoy being in side and listening to my radio as I paint. I plan on getting out a little this afternoon though. I have some things to mail.

Be sure and check out Leslie's blog for more Whatca Workin on Wednesday projects.

Happy April Fool's Day

Your Easter decorations are looking great :)

I try to do what you are, use what I have here! I don't mind if I have to buy something little like thread that I'm going to use time and time again but I don't like running out to buy something that I only use once. I usually try to figure out what I have on hand that will work just as well. Saves me money :)

Have a great day!

Those eggs are so cute! I love the fabric you used! The recipients of those are going to love them! The bunnies are sweet too! Great job on everything! I'm like you. I get excited over ideas I see, but if it involves much that I don't have here, I don't like spending that money!

Have a great Weds!

Your chocolate bunnies are EXACTLY what I've been looking for! Do you have a pattern you could share with me?
