A Bunny Hill Day

Yesterday was a happy one!  I received two packages brimming with Bunny Hill stuff!

On the doorstep was a package from the Fat Quarter Shop.  Oh, good grief, what buttons did I poke in the middle of the night?  I had totally forgotten about this luscious block of the month!

Pumpkinville has arrived!

Anne Sutton's BOMs sell out quickly, so I'd suggest signing up now for this beauty!

I'll be starting this after the first of the year.  I love pumpkins.  I would decorate year-round in them if I could.  This will be great to display in my "dream" house someday!  Someday ......

Then there was a box in the mailbox.  Uh oh!

Anne had talked about the Karisma marking pencils on her blog a while back.  She sold out before I could get one, but she promptly reordered.  I can't wait to try these out.  Went ahead and got all of the colored leads, as well as the fabric eraser.  I'll do a review on them after using the marker.

I also ordered a small wool kit to make a Snow Pocket.  This will be so cute hanging on the Christmas tree with a gift tucked inside.  Several of these will probably be made.

It's raining here.  Maybe we are having a preview to our annual ten minutes of winter!

Short Listers -- there are two links at the top of my sidebar.  A couple of folks don't have blogs, but their names are still listed.  Carolyn had a great idea.  She's going to add a project to her list when she finishes one.  That way she'll always have a current to-do list instead of the UFO cache like I have.  (sigh)   I'm going to follow her lead and do likewise.  My list won't always contain huge projects.  Sometimes it'll be to do a repair like Carolyn is showing.  If those kinds of things are listed, they'll more than likely get done!

If anyone else wants to join in the Short Listers, let me know and your name will be added.  2013 is going to be a year of accomplishments for a lot of us!

Anything else?

Nope, that's all I can think of at 6:30 in the morning. 

Except for Penny's gentle snoring and the rain splattering on the roof, it's quiet and peaceful here.  This is my favorite time of day.  It's just starting to brighten a bit outside, and the promise of the day is here.  I plan to finish up organizing the sewing room over this weekend.  After all, next week means four uninterrupted days of sewing!!

I can't wait!!!

Put me on the list!

What if your short list is really long?

Carolyn said...

Four days of sewing? That will be wonderful! I'm hoping to get some time in around the shopping, cooking, cleaning and eating...not sure what will happen! I'll see if I can figure out how to add a box to my blog too, I'm hopeless when it comes to things like that. If I can't, I'll yell for help!

Looks like we started something here! :)

I love, love, love Pumpkinville! I can't wait to see yours together. Isn't it altogether too easy to shop in our pajamas? Ha, ha!!

Yay! Thanks for making a short list of short listers! I've already finished my first two... But there will be no adding until I make it to number 4!

Pumpkinville is so pretty. I came so close to ordering it but knew I'd never do all that applique so, I've resisted . . so far.

Carol said...

What fun! What fun! What fun! Great packages in the mail! ENJOY!
