{Bunny’s Friends} Part 2


Once upon a time there was a Bunny. She was a happy, pink Bunny but she missed something …

Bunny said to the little Dragonfly ‘please make me a friend! I have a job to do and need a friend to help me.’

Dragonfly sat to think what to do. Then she remembered Kristy’s Bird and thought to make a bird who could help Bunny.

She picked her blue fabrics, papers and tools and started to make a bird …

Dragonfly sew until late during those hot summer nights to finish the little bird.

She thought this little Bird will be a great singer … she needs one star!

Dragonfly picked her cutest scraps. She put some white around and sew with her tiny sewing machine …

Then she stitched and stitched … around, up and down, here and there …

  1. Bird and Star – a winning combination!

  2. Awww, Teje. Sweet ! Is this a continuing saga into a children’s book you are writing?? I seen so many books illustrated by piece work, and these would be engaging pieces.

    • Thank you so much Julie! This just happened to become a little story in my mind when I was thinking how to share the secret project I did in summer.A book with a story of a quilt would be wonderful! x Teje

  3. Now here you are with all your other talents and we find out you are a gifted storyteller as well! I shouldn’t be surprised though because there is always something special being created at your place in the woods …. I mean by the sea. Can’t wait to hear what comes next. Hugs from us to all of you.

    • Thank you so much Sonja! I don’t know about storyteller but I have always enjoyed and read a lot and sometimes of course dreamed about being a writer… perhaps a quilted children story could be my way to ‘write’. Hugs from Crete where today we have a small feeling of autumn. x Teje

  4. Perfect as always! Looking forward to see more of the quilt!
