    My public library here in Newbern, TN is gracious enough to give me a little wallspace to show off my work. I started last month with the Easter wallhanging shown below, and for the next one I thought a nice spring theme would be appropriate. It's a small library since we're a town of only about 3000, but the people are nice and we've made several good friends since moving here in September of 2009. The bunny wallhanging even generated a commission of a baby quilt. It will have more bunnies of course, 30 all total, in a grid 5 bunnies x 6 bunnies, so that it will make out to be sufficient crib quilt size. Different colors, predominately blue (it's for a boy) and I'm thinking of making girl bunnies AND boy bunnies. I just need to adjust the pattern to make shorts on the boys. lol I'll let you know how it turns out. Until then, here's some pics...

    Both are very nice. Especially like the 3-D bunny ears.
