Easter Bunny!

I didn’t quite manage to finish my latest project in time for Easter, but here she is anyway – better late than never! Introducing, Bunty, my Easter bunny

Look at those big eyes and those long droopy ears – isn’t she sweet? The pretty floral dress fabric is some that I had in a fabric sale from the USA and have wanted to use for a while now, and her big pink nose is made from a little bit of my wool stash – some I bought from the NEC last year from the Festival of Quilts. I think this is the first bit of the wool I’ve used (been saving it up for I don’t know what!).

I’ve decided not to put my Easter bits away just yet, as it would be a shame to shunt Bunty off into drawer so soon, so I’ll leave her out for another week .... or two maybe.

Well, I have an extra day off work today (yippee!!), but I must get on, as I have to go and buy paint for the new front door I shall be having fitted next weekend.

Your bunny is adorable. I had a bunny collection that I left out year round. People started giving me bunnies for gifts. It looked like I had a bunny farm. I still have a few special ones on display. I love yours and her beautiful dress!

Julia, she is just the cutest little thing. Don't put her away at all, she would be lovely to look at all the time, such a sweet wee face.

Oh Julia, Bunty is absolutely gorgeous! I don't think I could put her away at all, she would have to stay out all year round so that I could keep looking at her! :o)
