Shark Rabbit!!, originally uploaded by jenib320.
George likes to loaf it in his basket and if you come down to his level his ears look like a shark fin! It kills me every time!

Thanks for your response to the quilt along! By popular demand, we'll be doing the half-square triangle version! I'll have the first post ready for next week with sizes and fabric requirements! In the meantime you can grab a button from the sidebar if you'd like! :)

  1. Haha George is so cute! He looks like he's spying on you from the basket! :)
    Yay for colorful quilt along and vintage sheets! :D

  2. i would love to make a vintage sheet picnic quilt and your stacks of sheet scraps are so pretty! i love the hst block you made; the reds are really pretty and totally pop with the grays.

  3. Can't wait for the warm/cool quilt-a-long.

  4. Your map of the states embroidery looks great! I have been thinking about it since your last post, it is such a cute idea... My husband loves maps and travel so I may have to do something similar. I'm thinking maybe for a throw pillow or wall hanging?

  5. Your map is so sweet! Will you be embellishing once it's outlined?

  6. How did I miss that you're starting your Warm Cool QA? I'm definitely in!

  7. Shark bunny! I have a similar picture of one of my cats with his eyes and ears just poking out above a blanket - so cute and hilarious. Thanks for sharing George with us!

  8. I really like the idea of the map embroidery. What method do you use to transfer it? I know that's definitely a beginner question, but I've been practicing embroidery stitches but have no idea how to actually get a pattern onto the fabric to make something for real!
