Things have been pretty hectic around here lately, and there hasn't been a lot of time for sewing or making things. Plus there was something else that was bothering me and making me in a not-so-crafty mood.
Monday morning I went outside to let out the chickens, feed the bunny, etc., when I noticed something odd. The screen door to the pool deck was wide open. And the bunny was nowhere to be found. The sound of hawks screeching filled the air. I burst into tears. It was just a bad morning. The day before we'd been playing with her inside, and she was being so funny...all I could think about was this as I searched the yard for any sign of her:
She lounged like this on the gumdrop pillow for ages, half upside down and looking like some kind of bad taxidermy experiment. It was hysterical.
Needless to say everyone was upset by the awol bunny. My husband (who left the door open) felt guilty. The middlest made his usual comment of "Well, we can just buy another one" (always pragmatic, that one).
And then last night at about 8pm, a knock sounded on our door. Our neighbor was standing there holding a VERY muddy, hideous looking Guinevere. We were so happy! She got a bath (and a lot of junk picked out of her fur) and seemed none the worse for the wear. Although...maybe some mongrel bunnies will be born next month? There are a LOT of manly little bunnies in our woods. Maybe she left cause she was just lookin' for love in all the wrong places.
Anyway, with the bunny back safely I felt like sewing again, so this morning I finished up Lightning 2.0. Yay!
I opted for multi-colored hand quilting, and bound it up in some green Farmdale fabric. Love! I'm so glad that the tutorial gave me an excuse to make one for myself. :)
Hope you're all have a good week! We're starting homeschooling next week so things will likely be pretty crazy around here. But I'm SO ready for fall.
