Quiet weekend on the stitching front

This long weekend has begun with very little stitching.  I spent today cleaning up my sewing room, it had a fairly thick coating of dust, threads on the rug, and messy shelves. 

I rearranged the power board that all my appliances plug into and sorted through my WIP's, vacuumed the rug and dusted every surface.

As usual, I now just want to look at the room and not make any mess. 

I do however, have this completed block to show for my efforts this week. The buttons are only positioned, as I don't want to add them until the top is completed, just in case they get in the way of the quilting!

Hi Julie! Your bunny basket is as cute as can be, and your applique looks beautiful! It must be hand-stitched. What method of hand-applique do you prefer?

Yet another beautifully executed block, Julie.... I love the fabric you've used for the basket, it looks so realistic! (The ATCs I said I was sending you are still to be posted - sorry!)

Oh I sooo need to 'do' my sewing studio, you have insired me just wish I was the other side of the dusting too!
Love the folders and postcards.

You've been very busy Julie!
I love your Bunny Hill blocks and thanks for the link to the tutorial on the ribbon.
Not sure I will be able to get my head around that but would love to have some personalised ribbon.
I hope you are feeling better!
