Bunnies to the Rescue

When I chose the thread-painted robin I really did think I was doing ONE motif for a swap....when Susan said 8-10 I had a panic attack. If I was doing one I wanted it to be extra special.

But next to birds on felt I love doing bunnies on felt and they show up often on RR blocks I do for others. These all went onto one block for my friend Lisa who had a fondness for bunnies and her block was rather bare by the time it got to me (being the last to work on it.) All the time I was working on them I was humming "Bunnies Hopping Down a Button Trail" thinking I would use that idea some time...

So the robin will go on hold and I will overdye some thread and think bunnies... I can get nostalgic about furry little embroidered bunnies but when they get into my garden they are "rotten rabbits.."

It depends on whether the rabbit concerned is eating cherished plants or sitting safely with his mouth shut in embroidered form!

I love those bunnies you made for me! They make me smile every time I look at them! They are getting framed to hang on my study/studio wall!

I love your bunnies whether they're your embroidered ones or your painted ones...

Roommates must think alike. I'm doing bunnies, too, in a much different style. I've been in and out of hospital for a month so I hope I can get them done in time. I want to be spry for Connecticut. Wish me the best.
