rabbit frame made for april for thursday girl at cricut diaries

this is my last project for thursday girl. I was thursday girl for jennifer and summer over at cricut diaries It has been alot of fun and was honored to be asked. thank you so much ladies your the best and your blog brings inspiration to all of us. Now on to todays project. I made a frame for easter- spring I used celebrate the flourish cart for rabbit
cut to fit pg I cut 4 and glued altogether for a really sturdy frame. used flowers to decorate from walk in my garden cut at 2in.

here is the back of frame. hope you have enjoyed all my projects for thursday girl

be sure to check jennifer and summer for next months lucky person.

diane here is emilys crown royal quilt for new hubby

heres a close look these pictures really dont bring out that pretty velvet and the purple it pops off that velvet which is a deep gold I quilted it instead of tie it was way to thin and stretchy

heres the completed quilt could use a little more length on sides I think but I can always add that later if need me to. hope you love it, if not I will keep it for myself ha. hugs love ya
