Bunny Hill BOM # 6 Revisited and #7.

Notice anything different? Remember that I ask you if I shoud add a button or other vintage trim? Remember that I told you that nothing seemed to work for me so I just thought I would leave it "as is"? Well, I changed my mind in spite of the fact that your comments indicated that I had made the right decision. I found a button that seemed to be made just for this block and the miniature rick rack seemed just the thing on a particular day--ever had that happen to you before? One day nothing works and the next--wa--la?

Below you will find BOM #7, the July Block. I really had fun with this one. If you have visited the Flicr Group site, then you have seen all the beautiful blocks that are being made with the free patterns. One lady decided to put a flag in her basket for July, and then added some star flowers. I liked the flag alot, so I changed it a bit and added a fire cracker complete with sparkle. I had a ball with this one--think it has been more fun than any others. Tiny rick rack adorns the flag as it waves, the batting sheep holds a flag telling us the special day in July, and
following suit, I used vintage rick rack for the handle, this time weaving a medium and a small size in nave and a bright blue for a little pop. If you click on the pics, you can see the detail. (This scares me to death). Oh go ahead---nobody is perfect!! LOL Thanks for looking at my blocks and hey--go do the Flickr thing!!
