Slow, Slow, Slow!

I'm having a slow morning. I think I've had enough sleep. Honestly, it's hard to tell when insomnia is my middle name, but I've had a few decent nights without extra medication, and that's about as good as it gets. I've had a nice breakfast and better than average coffee. I have plenty of things on the "to do" list and plans to catch up with a friend later in the day. The sun is shining, and it's not too hot. Nevertheless, I'm feeling unmotivated and slow. I guess that's just how it is today.

Yesterday I finished off the hand stitching on Bunny Rug #1, despite being less than thrilled with the fabric. It's done. Now I have Bunny Rug #2 all ready to go:
I've used spray adhesive to layer the two fabrics together. I've stitched around the edge and trimmed it all square. I've cut the binding strips. Next step is to join the binding strips to make a continuous length, then fold, press and stitch it around the edge. And this is fabric that makes me smile, so hopefully I can get going on that today.

YOu are super productive!! I really need to get off the computer and make some more easter baskets (im doing easter the cheap way as we have many nieces!) I love the fabric on both bunny rugs.
Is there a meeting at the neighbourhood house this monday or are you closed b/c of the public holiday?
