Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

A Bunny Finish

Last year...was it just last year or was it the year before?....Michelle at The Raspberry Rabbits gave away a wonderful BOM called Harrington and Hannah.  It combined embroidery with wool applique, which is my absolute favorite thing in the world to do.   I knew from the beginning that this was one I would make for one of my grandchildren.  Not that I plan to give it to any of them now because I want to enjoy it myself for a while.  :)  With work sneaking up on me last year it took me forever to finish but finally it's done!





I would have a hard time choosing a favorite block but it would be one of these four - who doesn't love snowmen...but I'm a retired educator so obviously the apple ABC would be in my list, the welcome friends reflects the primitive/country decor I love and then who doesn't love to get mail?  Michelle has such creative ideas that I love everything she does but this time I think she outdid even herself!
