Easter Bunnies Hop

A sneak peek at my Easter Bunny swap organised by Lucy Locket. It was a bit of a struggle as I am no "softie" expert, but it is taking a giant hop overseas tomorrow.
As you probably know I did have a WONDERFUL day last Friday at Stitches and Craft. It was so good meeting up with all the bloggers at the Living Creatively stand and feeling "part of the gang". I had been meaning to make one of dear fi's bowls and even had the gladwrap on the bowl in my sewing room waiting for the motivation. After seeing Fiona's bowl in the flesh I couldn't help making one over the weekend. I was so thrilled with how well it turned out, and with the hot weather, it didn't take any time to dry.
Because the motivation was high, I also finished this little "thread holder" that I started AGES ago. The only problem is, now I want to make another one, and I can't remember where I found the pattern. Who can help me???
Inspired with the felt I've had a little experiment with broaches.

...and even made a special one for Chooky Blue when we met up for the first time on Friday.

Looking forward to the Easter Break...

That bunny looks just so cute-can't wait to see it full size. I suppose that was one good thing about the weather-things dried quickly! You bowl looks great and the brooches are lovely. Muat look up that thread holder tutorial-looks interesting:)

Looks like everyone is out there to help you with the pattern. I keep all my patterns/links in a folder for easy finding on the computer. Love free tutorials.
Love your flowers, you have been busy since you got home.

Looking through the last few post, it's obvious you have really diversified and developed creatively since your first sampler. It is great to follow your craft journey!
