Happy Monday everyone!   I had a great weekend and I hope you did too.  I spent the weekend coloring and it was so much fun!  I bought these markers awhile ago and this is the first time I’ve used them.  They provide a sea of smooth color for any design…

…I used them to color in samples for my new Spring fabric line.  It was exciting to see the new fabric come to life on paper.   I took a few of my new prints and cut them into applique designs to make sure they worked in a bunny body, a flower, stems etc. and now  I can’t wait to play around with this fabric.  It takes almost a year from start to finish so it will be awhile before you can buy this fabric but in the meantime I’ll be dreaming up new patterns to make with them!

Some excitement at Bunny Hill…I have a new assistant named Kim!  I think you’ll love her as much as I do because she is going to free me up for more blogging, help me with new projects and lots of fun things.   I’ve been without an assistant for the past 4 months so having Kim to help me is a dream come true!  Welcome Kim!

I took some time this weekend to visit my Henrietta Flickr group.  If you haven’t visited in awhile you are in for some wonderful surprises!  It will inspire you to start this quilt if you haven’t already.  There are so many creative quilters in this group from all over the world.  I just have to share Melody’s version with you…

I wanted to start making another Henrietta when I saw her out of Lily & Will!  Can you believe it?  Melody added the opposite color on the color wheel (orange) and it’s darling!  Just think, you can use Lily & Will for baby’s room and then make that baby an heirloom quilt to keep forever using the same fabrics.  Wouldn’t you love to pull this out when you’re say 30 and say “these are the fabrics from my room when I was a baby”?  Can you imagine?  Melody you are so creative and you just made my day!  Congratulations on such a darling quilt!  Head on over to check out the group and if you’re a member of Flickr leave a comment or two.  It’s really fun!

I’m off to take Chelsea for her morning walk…have a great day everyone!

Hugs,

Anne
