Bunny Pieces and Holder

My Bunny Pieces: I traced and cut today! I plan on starting my sewing tomorrow. The bunny looks like he will be a lot of fun. I am excited about doing the lighter color with the orange dress-i just love the fabric.

Here is my Water Bottle Holder-i am still on the pocket. Yeah i know-not much progress but yesterday i just ended up fooling around online. I really like this pattern but you tend to go from one boring part to the next but i have had this yarn for about a year and i am trying to use up the yarn that i bought for specific patterns before i buy more. So i can figure out what is going on in my stash. it is just to overwhelming right now. But i am getting there...slowly but surely :)
Hopefully i can finish the pocket tonight and strap away tomorrow night!
I plan on doing some quilting--yes i know i am getting very ambitious. I probably wont start any quilting until next week because i am gonna sew up my bunnies and i want to finish painting my room. i have the primer on. IT"S TIME FOR SOME COLOR! i cannot not WAIT until it's done!!! I don't want to do any painting for a very long time after this! Some FO pics soon i hope!!!

Another Thanx and an Update!

My Secret Pal has done it again! What has she done your wondering? She has sent me a Wonderful package! With not one but TWO knitted gifts (Knitty gloves and a washcloth), tissues (my allergies love you even though they are just too cute to be used, i saved one), A magnet for the fridge that flips open and you can write phone numbers on the inside, air freshner, Lantern Moon needle holder and Burt's Bees hand salve! THANK YOU SO MUCH Marie!!! You made my weekend!

Here's is me wearing the glove!! Thanx Again Marie!! i love them!

Remember this?

Well they have finally become these:

I am so happy with the way they came out-i was really doubting my sewing abilities. But they came out cute and huggable (my son loves hugging them). I am going to be making the bunny next. I already washed the fabric and tomorrow i will be cutting it.
I am also still working on my Water Bottle Holder but i have moved on to the strap. Once i get hte little pocket done that is on the strap it will move along super fast and i can start my next project. I was thinking this or getting a start on my Christmas gifts, What do you think???
