Evening Craft - Easter Egg with a Bejeweled Rabbit!

I was itching for a quick craft so I painted a wooden egg pink with a silhouette of a bunny and bejeweled her with a rhinestone necklace. :) After taking this picture I realized I need to shine 'er up! Lol!



Did I tell you all about my new found interest? Quilting! I have a very sweet gal I work with who is going to teach me how to piece a quilt! I'll have someone else do the actual quilting part. I don't think I have the patience for that. My first quilt will be small. The fun part is shopping for fabric and I have found some SWEET fabrics. Sweet, as in with food on it. I swear that's all I think about, FOOD!

Afterthought. You are going to think I'm crazy but I kept looking at these pictures...and looking at the bunny and then I screamed! Ohmigosh, this bunny looks like the Playboy bunny and that's not my intention! I was mortified when the thought came to my head! Whaaaaa!! Okay, just know that's not what I wanted it to look like, k? :( LOL

Now I can sleep.

I love the egg! Where did you get the bunny? Very cute!

You get to learn how to quilt! I've ALWAYS wanted to make a quilt!

I swear you are going to think I'm making up that I like all the same stuff as you but it's true!

I think you need to move back to OC so we can hang out.

Hugs,
Joanne

Ha! Okay, don't tell that to my mom because she will gang up with you on wanting me back home. Lol! I painted the bunny on the egg! I got back online though because I'm a little mortified. The more I look at it the more it looks like the Playboy bunny!! Eeek!! :( LOL

Joanne, we will definitely get together the next time I'm home visiting my mother!!! I can't wait. :)

Michelle, I like your bunny very much. the colors are perfect and the necklace an elegant touch! I have done a little quilting.. not much and I have finished one piece...I'll take a photo and you can see.. the batting isn't finished and the back isn't on yet.. but I hand sewed each one.. it's work , but if you can do it, it will be worth it!!

Good luck with the quilting.
I saw your "dream fridge" picture. A loooong time ago an ex-boyfriend and me were apt. hunting and came across an apt. which was situated above a photgraphy studio. It had a PINK kitchen...pink fridge, stove and even black & pink tiled flooring...We didn't take the apt. (I wantd to, he didn't), but I'll never forget the appliances!!
Thanks for the memory!

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaah so cute, defenitely the centrefold this month. I like the idea of the egg, if you painted some smaller ones they would be perfect as ornaments on an Easter tree.
So fun that you are getting into quilting. I do not have the patience for it (says the girl who does the cross stitching) but I certainly love the finished items.

The egg is too cute! You are so talented. I just got my Easter decorations out last night- I wish they would put themselves up! I dabbled in quilting- not too good at it, but I am getting back into x stitiching and that is fun for me. Have a great day!

The Blonde Duck said...

I love all the Easter goodness. I think it's cool you're taking up quilting. When I was younger, I demanded only quilts on my beds. They're so much lighter and cozier.

Janet said...

How cute is that egg? I love it sis! You are so creative and it shows every time you make something special:) And by the way, you better start packing because I'm jumping on that bandwagon too - come home!!!!!

I luv ur egg bunny! Paint a wooden egg, so clever! I always hate when we have to crack open our boiled eggs.

Sandy Michelle said...

No it ok like the playboy bunny and so what if it does..LOL! I made mini quilts with peices of my kid's baby pyjamas. It stops there though- as I too have no patience for them. Happy Spring!

I am playing middle man... my friend Cindy Ruth at Baked Alaska has passed you a fabulous award. She is having trouble getting in touch with you.
Stop in at Baked Alaska to pick it up!

I quilted years ago... when I had time on my hands. Have fun with it!
