bunnies and more ....



I wanted to share some bunnies with you - not dust bunnies although we have planty of those to share.  You'll see them - 2 of them - leaning up against the vase of flowers ... their ears will stand up straight but I like to have one bent over for character.  These are so quick and easy to crochet and have all sorts of uses - perhaps even as napkin rings.  I made mine from #4 yarn and a 3.5 mm hook - the bows are made from #3 yarn with the same hook.

The yellow flower is not a sunflower but a gerbera - at the time I had no black yarn on hand - now I do and I will make a few more in other colours - they'll look nice pinned onto a grapevine wreath with a few green leaves thrown in or with wire attached and standing in a jar/vase or ......

Since the crocheted flowers didn't quite fill the vase I added an African Flower topper (see this post for the link) - these are fun to make - this one is made with #3 yarn.  The coasters are made with cotton yarn - such yummy colours.  I needed a thread catcher so a tuna can with a crocheted cover was perfect (see this post for the link) - my fabric ones are still packed away -  the vacuum pusher had mentioned the loose threads that always seem to find their way to the floor.

Sometimes I link up with Annemarie

Too late I noticed a couple of typos in my last two posts and I apologize - hopefully there are none here.

Adorable little bunnies! It looks like you've decided if Spring isn't going to be outside, you'll make it inside. =)
