Hippity Hop...hop ..hop

I am having such fun this year with the pastel colours
the Rabbits 
There are some thread keeper bunnies still in stock at that great half price..
What else can I say about the bunnies ????
Keep a little look out on the Bunny Hill designs  website ( go via bloglist )
some of the bunnies have just hopped off there to smile & look pretty with Anne's gorgeous designs
others in bunny love have gone to stay at Marg Low Designs to bring about a wonderful easter display she has been doing
today I hope Stitch'N'Patch in Lilydale will have their rabbits shipped off to become part of their display for Easter..
Check out Hatchedand Patched blog with Annie's wonderfully gorgeous cute cloth rabbits....

It is only a week or so before the Monbulk Quilt Show...
So tomorrow I finish any more painting I think I need,
then organise how I will make the display.
I have some half things done
and want to do a couple more pretty box things.
I go through this box phase every so often in years or I can just about say decades now...

When working under my Woodcutter's Daughter label in Canberra & later in Melbourne
I had a box thing.
The little screen printed stitcheries were all boxes, picture label, wood engraved tag with the thread colours on it  & twine...
Then in Melbourne in what 2002 early 2003 I began this button affair...
these were in dear little boxes
with twine ties & tagged with a little corrugated heart tag.
These things are extra costs in packaging & preparation & storage & postage because they need to be sent really all assembled 
Sometimes I long for that look so when I do things where I ma having a stall or a workshop
time permits
I play some more !!!
I love that .
