I'm afraid I've been very quiet these past few weeks.  I had surgery on my stitching arm on the 15th of March, and it was a little more extensive than they expected, so I had to rest it for a bit, so no stitching or computer!   I got the stitches out last week, but then had a problem with being allergic to the bandaids they had covering it!
I was able to do a little stitching this week, and have been playing around with a new applique project today.  Fortunately, I've been working a little bit ahead on "Sweet Nostalgia" so I have the block ready for this month, but I still have to prepare the pattern.  All being well, I should have it ready to post by the 15th.

Here are 2 more of the bunnies from the new ballerina bunny quilt I started designing last month.  I managed to get the quilt top assembled and was working on the borders before I had the surgery.  Hopefully, I'll be able to get it finished soon.
Bye for now.

Well bless your heart - you've sure been through it! My aunt is a nurse and she's allergic to most bandages too, the reaction can be serious. I hope you continue to heal well!
Your bunnies are SO CUTE - love their expressions!
