A little stitching brings out the sun
one minute sun, and then looming dark clouds and hard rain ... now it is back to sun
I thought I could make my own sun with another follower's block.
I decided to celebrate a long friendship with Debbie over at Woolensails. I have tried to add a link with no success but you can probably visit her by going to my side bar.
Debbie and I seem to have a lot in common. We even tend to visit the same set of blogs.
I thought of putting a little sailboat on the center square but opted instead for a bunny. My bunny is not wool or tea-dyed. Instead of two carrots, he is holding a heart. (well, this is about friendship) for the first time I used "Japanese taupe" fabric. I can see why it is so popular with Japanese quilters for applique.
I took the block up to my bed and my bunnies approved.
Here they are, sitting at the head of my bed.
The Knuffle bunny came from school ... needed for nap time. (and is it ever cuddly)!
The black bunny followed me home from the Tokyo Dome quilt show a few years ago.
The Bluberry-Jambo-Bunny has been to 6 Nippon Jamborees, 5 BSA Jamborees, 2 Nippon Venture Jamborees, 2 AGONOREES (for handicapped Scouts), and one World Jamboree. He is also Woodbadge trained ... wearing beads and a scarf, and a Vigil member of the Order of the Arrow. The button blanket is his. In a house where owls rule the roost, it is good for the bunnies to stick together.
Many thanks, Debbie, for your continuing friendship.
