Bunny Fever

It's spring in Northern Missouri, and that means new life on the farm...including the rabbits! A wild rabbit decided to give birth to her new babies right in the middle of our lawn! 10 feet from the dog pen. Under the clothesline. In the middle of the back lawn. These are brand new babies...they're still furless! The baby bunnies (in the picture at left) are hidden under the fur-lined nest their Momma made them. She was nowhere in sight when I took the picture, but I'm sure she was watching nearby. My husband is out mowing the lawn this evening, and I told him to be sure and skip that part of the lawn for a while!! Usually, these little bunnies are born in less obvious places..not sure why the Momma decided to choose a very open, visual spot. It will be fun to watch them grow and leave the nest!

All Dressed Up

This is my second "cuddle quilt" for the retreat I'm going to in May. The pattern is called "Darci's Dress Up" by Quilted Quickies. There is also a modified version of this pattern in the current issue of Quick Quilts magazine. I used Mary Engelbreit's "Recipe for Friendship" fabric (layer cake) to make the quilt. The little purses in the corners were my idea!!

I'm off to Arizona in the morning to visit my sister, and to quilt my large stack of quilt tops!!

He Has Risen Indeed!

A Joyous Resurrection Day to You!

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who according to His great mercy
has caused us to be born again to a living hope
through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
to obtain an inheritance which is
imperishable and undefiled
and will not fade away,
reserved in heaven for you,
who are protected by the power of God
through faith
for a salvation ready to be revealed
in the last time.

1Peter 1:3-5
