Patchwork is sew crazy!

Hope your having a great week the weather was a little nicer here in Cumbria today!
as least the sun popped out for a while this afternoon.
I love sewing and thought I would try my hand at a little patchwork so I collected up some scraps and cut them into squares, embossed then and then sewing them into place along with the ribbon as I ruffled it sewing that into place also, the butterfly in the bottom right corner is a wood ornament that I have coloured with distress inks, the image is also coloured with distress inks, I've added yellow gems to the flower in the image and then I added glossy accents on top, I also added glossy accents to the bunnies eyes and then used black glaze gel pen to black them up.
I think this image is so cute they are cuddled up under the flower tehhee bless.

So pleased you like it Annette :0)
