RAK and It's all Tiff's Fault

Well I didn't think I would have anything new to blog about. Then two things happened...

The mail came yesterday and a large envelop from overseas arrived. I wasn't expecting anything. I opened the package and got a wonderful surprise...
The card included reads: 
Hello Katie
You are my RAK recipient for March. I hope you like this little bunny. She comes complete with suitcase ready to accompany you on your travels!! 

I literally screamed in happiness. I can't believe this little cutie has came to brighten up my home. Julie you have no idea how much this has meant to me. She is adorable. I just LOVE the suitcase too. What a cute added thought since we travel so much. Plus it's Disney which is another thing we love so much and it's Elsa who loves snow just like me. Perfect in so many ways. I love her dearly Julie. Thank you so very very much for thinking of me and letting me have one of your beautiful rabbits you make with your amazing talent.

Then 2nd thing is I have a confession to make but it's all Tiff's fault from Tiffstitches Blog. On the 15th she did her Gifted Gorgeousness update and posted her beautiful projects she has been working on. I clicked on one of them to see what it was going to look like yesterday when I was catching up on blog reading. (I'm pretty sure Tiff knew what she was doing and planted this link just to tempt me!) It lead me to this Etsy store called Cute Patterns by Maria. I saw the pattern she was stitching which was really cute but on the side I see more patterns from this same designer. (Again I'm sure Tiff knew she had planted this on purpose so I would follow it and be forced to see the other patterns Maria had that just HAD to be owned by me immediately!) I said to myself no Katie you're not allowed to have more projects. I of course saved the photo and sit it aside. Later last night I showed my husband in disgust what Tiff had planted to tempt my mind and heart. He said "Oh wow I love that." No! He had evidently been told by Tiff to join in the temptation. So I again said "Yeah like I need more projects." Fred smiled knowing me and knowing it wouldn't be long. This morning I showed my mom again with disgust and said "One bad thing about having stitching friends that you read their blogs!!" The response...."Have you finished it yet?" Then she started pointing to where we could hang it when it's framed. So needless to say...
These patterns are now mine. I have a feeling I will be starting the bottle piece soon. The whale in the lightbulb was too cute to pass up too though. *sigh* I didn't need more patterns. But...These are too perfect. So as long as I blame Tiff and my entire family I can't feel guilty right??

Oh, what a sweet bunny from Julie! I understand how happy that RAK made you, Katie, as I also received one of her darling bunnies a few years back--Julie is such a caring and generous stitching friend, isn't she?

Enjoy your new patterns--they look like fun!

Rachel said...

Haha! Isn't the blogosphere just the angel and the devil at the same time! But you're right; you have no need to feel guilty if your family were encouraging you. And to keep things fair, you HAVE to start both!!! :)

Preeti said...

Lovely RAK from Julie! Both the designs are cute, enjoy stitching:) You are probably the next one to be blamed by someone for not only sharing the designer link but also the designs to tempt others :D

Justine said...

Hmm yes I agree with Preeti! "Thanks" for the link. I too am lucky to have received one of Julie's bunnies, she is such a special lady to gift so much of her handiwork. Now you have to name her! Her sister Hyacinth is waving hello!

Rhona said...

Such cute bunny...what a wonderful surprise! Such beautiful new charts...I follow Maria on Facebook and know the dilemma of seeing new charts that call your name. I am NOT going to click the link that you added to your post....oh, who am I kidding, I'm off to have a look now! :)

All this blog reading is very dangerous. I had to buy the whale in a light bulb and while I was there ...

Meari said...

What a cute RAK you received. I can see why you'd squeel over it. :) Looking forward to seeing your new start.

Brigitte said...

Oh my, I love the little surprise Julie sent you. So sweet from her.
Hahaha, I can see why you had to have this lovely pattern. Enjoy stitching it.

Christine said...

LOL and now I've clicked on it, and it's your fault!
Great RAK from Julie

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

What a wonderful Julie Bunny, aren't they gorgeous?
I confess, I did think of you when I saw that first pattern when Tiff shared the link. So it was meant to be LOL

Julie said...

I'm so pleased she brightened your day Katie.
Nice new charts, I can see a few ladies will be stitching those up real soon.

Hooray for a Julie bunny! And oh my gosh that whale in a lightbulb. I saw that on there too. It's so incredibly cute!

Oh wow, the bunny is adorable! Such a sweet RAK from Julie.
That Tiff, she’s trouble... of the best kind. ❤️ Both of those patterns are great.
