Spring and Bunnies


Don't you love Friday's! This has been such a crazy week. One of those weeks, I did slide in sideways. 

I did manage to get the Dancing Rabbits finished and bound. Thank you Saundra, for the idea and for holding the hook along. It was so nice getting to see all of the different kinds of rugs. All of them are just so cute. 

 I just couldn't get it like I thought about it in my head. But here it is and I enjoyed hooking it very much.

I thought that I might show you the rest of my bunny rugs. When I started looking, I couldn't believe all I had. If you asked me, I might have said, " Oh, I don't have any bunny rugs." 

 I really had fun making this rug. The pattern is from Star Rug Company. I really enjoyed making this, in fact I think it was one of the fastest rugs I ever hooked. Like a day. I just couldn't stop.


This bunny rug was one of the first I ever hooked. I didn't even know it was a punch needle and I  still have the punch needle someplace. I think I will see if I can find it today and do it today. 

This pattern is from Baskets of Wool. I don't know what happened to her but I sure loved her rugs and her patterns.

I was trying to take pictures and someone thinks every rug I make is for him. Max really wanted to keep this one he had his claws dug in so when he jumped off to get the other rug, I rescued this one. Silly kitty. He knows who is boss around here. 

Last week Saundra posted her picture of Windy Day. I loved her pattern so much that I tracked it down and I loved every minute of hooking this. I just makes me chuckle. I always look forward to March when I put it out. I think I put it out at the end of February.  It still makes me smile. 

We planted this Oklahoma Redbud last year. It is so pretty seeing them all blooming all over town when I go run errands. Most of the year, you don't even notice it but this time of year they are just beautiful.

This week is our oldest three grandsons birthdays. They are three days apart. I just can't believe that they are going to be fifteen. Time goes so fast. Kind of a blur. 

I am going to get back to my regular hooking. I am excited to see what I can get finished now. I have a basket full of rugs I have never hooked. That means I get to play with dye soon. I love working with dye. 

I hope you have a lovely weekend.


Of course, I forgot this one. 

“Sunday, January 27, 1884. -- There was another story in the paper a week or so since. A gentleman had a favorite cat whom he taught to sit at the dinner table where it behaved very well. He was in the habit of putting any scraps he left onto the cat's plate. One day puss did not take his place punctually, but presently appeared with two mice, one of which it placed on its master's plate, the other on its own.”
-- Beatrix Potter

What a wonderful rug show!!!!!! LOve your version of the Dancing Rabbits very much. Seeing it all finished is more enjoyable being gobsmacked all at onece than getting bits and pieces of the background.

Oh Love your Dancing Bunnies & all your other beautiful Bunny rugs !!! Think I have to put Windy Days on my list too , it has been so windy every day !

Your rugs are beautiful, and I love each of your bunny rugs.
I do love that Mrs. Rabbit(?) rug.
It always makes me think of Wind in the Willows, for some reason :)

What a fun birthday month in your family! It's so incredible that you will have 15 yr. old Grands. Next year, they'll be driving!

Yup...old Rowdy. He's a good old dog, and I think border collies are the sweetest, most intelligent dogs ever, and we've had quite a few dogs and lots of different breeds and I can say that hands down, the border collies are my favorite.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

p.s. thanks for sharing your redbud....the blossoms are so pretty.

Such a lovely bunny rug show and I like your windy house too. I think your dancing bunnies are looking so happy that it makes me smile. I really like your creative interpretation of the pattern.

Today is like a spring day and I picked up broken branches on the front lawn. They were all small branches but some I had to wait for warmer weather as some were stuck in the ice. I saw a big circle around the sun, not a good sign. Snow is coming...

Take care,

I was looking at your rugs and went, "Oh wow, that's a really realistic looking cat. Oh wait." Also, I love all your bunnies!

You have to keep an eye on those bunny wabbits...they multiply like...well, rabbits! 🤣 Your dancing rabbit rug turned out wonderfully!! I love the background detail. And all your other bunny rugs too!! While not good to play favorites, I gotta say that last bunny rug is my favorite....and I, too, remember when you hooked it. Tell Max he can't have that one...I'm claiming it LOL. I also love Windy Day....your hooked version I mean...NOT what was going on outside here today. Yikes....thought I was going to end up in Kansas. Still very cold here but someone said we'd break out of the negative digits by the latter part of next least for a few days. ~Robin~

I adore your Dancing Bunnies. Your hooking mojo is off the charts.
All the bunny rugs are too sweet, but like Robin, the last is my favorite ;-)
