Have a Cosmic Rabbit New Year!



It's the YEAR OF THE RABBIT!

... So of course I've honored Bunners by making rabbit quilts, but I can't show them yet because I entered them in Quilting Arts Magazine's Calendar Contest -- the theme is pets -- and you can't publish your entries. But I did overlay photographs of some of the fabric and test samples into a collage, above, that shows you the colors without revealing the design. My entries are called:

"The Cosmic Rabbit Sees All"
and
"The Cosmic Rabbit Chills Out"



Here is my little Muse,
 snuggling on this chilly
New Year's Eve Day:



It was sunny and cold (around freezing) here in Gig Harbor on the final day of the year, so I headed down to the harbor for a few photos:



(That's Mt. Rainier on the horizon.)

The next two are from our neighborhood:



And here is my birthday vignette, showing a little papercut card that Julia made with our tall evergreens and a heart. I love the gold and green of her gift bag, and the green goes great with the mauve mug. Color is everything!


Have a Very Colorful New Year!
