Bunny Gingham ornament

Happy Friday!
Blogger finally decided to let me post, only after I got creative and come back, more on that later.
I also tried to comment on a bunch of post, but that stupid error kept coming up.

Here's what I did with the Bunny Gingham by Twisted Threads




I made it into a ornament. It was sent to Deb to Thank her for the scissor frog, I won back in Sept. I have been wanting to get her something made and this was it.

This was the creative little side of me while I was waiting for blogger to play nice.

I finished painting my craft room today. I purchased one of those see thru covers.

See! I cracked it, so now I will have to buy another one. I cut up one of hubby's map. I want to find a sewing related photo out of a magazine to replace the map someday.

Ewwww!!!! Look what sneaked it's way up from the river to greet me as I was scrubing patio furniture. I got a pitch fork and carried him right back down where he belongs.

"Good Ridden's!! Mr. Snake"


I am just so excited here this afternnon, when I read http://inspiredneedle.com/ newsletter. Lisa from The Primitive Needle has her trunk show there this month. I will see ya soon, Cathy.

I want to wish everyone and their families a warm Easter weekend


If you see this post, I will be back, lol

After writing all this.... Blogger better post it or I quit

I love the finishing on your bunny gingham ornament! And the map wall switch -- cool! Too bad about the snake. You're braver than I am though -- there's no way I would have carried a snake somewhere! lol! Have a great Easter!

Shari said...

oh my!!! That bunny pattern is adorable! Hey, can I ask.....what is the fabric???? This is twice this week I have seen this & I want to get some for the chocolate sampler by LHN....I make homemade chocolates & that is perfect...
I don't think the snake would have made it back to the water if it were me. The fork would have been THRU him!!!!
Happy Easter!

Andrea said...

Happy Easter Ranae! I love your Gingham Bunny ornament, too cute!
Too bad about the cracked plate cover, it's cute though!
I like how you took the snake back to the river instead of killing it. You're a girl after my own heart :-)

Love that bunny. Glad it wasn't just me being given the run around by blogger.
Aww , poor snake just wanted to come and say hello , the closest I get is a toad on the back garden LOL.

Everything looks great (I like the snake, too!) and you light switch cover is so clever!!

Jackie said...

Deb is a lucky girl!

I hate snakes. I just can't get past it.

Donna said...

The bunny is just so cute. You know you can stitch something to go under the light switch cover. I did and my Dad absolutely loved it. Now that he is in heaven, I have it at my house. The key is not to tighten it too tight.
Now the snake, well, I wouldn't have taken it back somewhere. I would have beat the snot out of it. But that is how I roll! LOL

Judy S. said...

Happy Easter, Ranae. Like Donna suggested, you can stitch an insert for those see-through covers. Nice job on the stitching...and the snake! Would you believe that once I saw one in the fabric shop in with the felt???

nima said...

you are really brave to take that snake and put it back to the river...i would have screamed ....and ran away from that place...

Brigitte said...

Oh Ranae, such a cute little bunny ornament. I love seeing all those stitched bunnies on the various blogs these days.
Enjoy the Easter weekend!

acereta said...

Very cure bunny! Happy Easter!

Jane said...

Buttons and I love your bunny ornament, another chart I just couldn't resist so it's on its way to me next week ~ any clues on where to hunt out the gingham fabric? Spiders are about as far as I go and that's with my eyes shut - well done you!

Mylene said...

Your bunny ornament is so cute.

A happy Easter weekend to you too.

JOLENE said...

Great painting job. The bunny finish is adorable. Deb will be thrilled. Yuck about the snake. I am always afraid one will cross my path since we live in the sticks.

Julie said...

That is the cutest ornament! Happy Easter!

Deb said...

You know how much I love that ornament Ranae! It is the sweetest thing that I could have received. Thank you, thank you!! UGH on the snake though. Thank goodness you had something handy to get rid of it. Those things give me the willies!

Hope that you have a wonderful Easter!

Suzanne said...

Very cute Easter ornament! Eeww indeed, how yucky to have a snake on your patio.
