Spring Lace Bunny...

This lace bunny is just begging Spring to arrive.
I made this similar to the lace bird of last week. However this time I used a foam cut out for the core. Long ago I bought some at the dollar store and put them aside for future use. Aha! I sewed sheet music to the back and a layer of muslin to the front. Then I embellished at random with laces. A pink button sewn on for her eye. A music paper heart and a pink heart button sewn on. I used a dryer sheet for her fluffy tail which a gathered into a circle and then stitched on. She is holding a ribbon rose and a tiny heart wreath as an offering to Mother Nature to please bring Spring. Miss Bunny could also be on her way to a wonderful tea, or shopping, or to church or perhaps just out looking for that elusive sunshine.
We continue to have rain and snow and lots of wind and cold temperatures. It is being reported that this is our worst winter in at least a decade. Fortunately our water table continues to overflow...just as long as the dams and lakes and rivers hold their banks we will all be fine.
I have given this lace bunny to my dear friend Margaret who collects bunnies. I am also hoping this bunny will bring abundance to Margaret. Abundance is her inspiration word. I find it to be a very interesting word that is not always on the forefront of decor items. However a very powerful word indeed.
Well, here I am indoors and safe and sound while the storm rages outside. I feel fortunate to have a home, food, power, Mr. C, my fur-child BooBoo kitty and the comfort of knowing my friends and family are with me on this journey.
May you each have a creative and meaningful day...

  3. I see you are hopping with creativity. Our water table is also high and water is already trickling thru the basement. Not too much of a problem just kinda annoying. I'll keep distracted by playing elsewhere!

  4. Such a wonderful lace bunny!
    So so sweet.
    I love lace and use it lots in my crafts.
    Stay warm and cozy.
    The storm in SF has been wild today as I am sure it is in GV and NC!
    We are lucky and very fortunate to have all that we have to keep us comfortable in life.
    Prayers for all those less fortunate people.
    Hugs, Cory/Dogwood

  16. The winter snowstorms all week were hard to bear, even for 7 and 8-year-olds, so I too found that I needed BUNNIES! I put bunnies around my classroom! Your lace bunny is gorgeous! Very creative. Have a happy bunny weekend, my dear! ~kath

  18. HOW UTTERLY DARLING and so much NEEDED! I have tons of wild rabbits that live here, but the snow is still so DEEP, the poor things have to burrow in the snow and have not made their presence known in the day...I just see their little footprints in the snow; funny, they look like COWBOY BOOT PRINTS!!!! THANK YOU FOR VISITING and one day I have to figure out how to record my harp!!! LOVE TO YOU, Anita
