Chocolate bunny word scramble...

Weasley and I have been playing chocolate bunny word scramble.  One of the two UFO's that I am committed to finish right now is "Bunnies Prefer Chocolate" by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs.  I just finished the embroidery embellishments and got the blocks sewn together.  Now I am ready for a stop border and an outer border.
This is not a very good picture...too dark and washed out, but you get the idea.  The thing that coaxed me (tricked me, really...) into finishing was deciding to put a phrase in the outer border.

I've gotten some good suggestions from friends and blogland.
The phrase will be: (drum roll, please...)

Just hand over the chocolate...
...and no bunny gets hurt!

As much as I love Tonya's free pieced letters, I decided the roundness of the rabbits called for rounded, applique letters.  I've got them drawn on Freezer paper, ready to cut out, adhere to some fabric and get crackin' on the applique.

I finally took down the Christmas tree ornaments and the new artificial tree segments were stuffed into 2 large tree duffle bags.  They are in the living room until we get them in the attic over the garage.  They look like body bags.  A neighbor popped in today, glanced at the bags, then glanced back at me.  I told her, "that's what happens when you don't get what you wanted for Christmas..."

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)
