Baby Cousin's Bunny is....

Finished! Hooray! (except for the eyes and nose--I'm scared to sew the buttons on because the baby may chew them off or swallow--I might sew the face up with just thread.)

I have become attached to this sweet little bunny--I want to keep it! Oh, well...I guess I will just have to make myself a duplicate.

Front (needs face)


Back (needs a fluffy tail)

Knit, Skip, Hop, and a Jump!

I went through my huge, messy knitting basket the other find...lots of unfinished projects..

"Bad Queeny," I said to myself. For I started new projects..then found more new exciting projects--sooo without thinking--I dropped the old and went onto the new!
Remember the special scarf? the one you all chose colors for..?

And one of my very first crafts--the flower rug?
Don't worry. I will finish my toadstool fairy-ring.

I've decided to start off by finishing at least 3 of my unfinished projects. 3...2................2 1/2.........1... Here I GO!!

Baby Cousin's Bunny

I am going to visit my baby cousin soon and I wanted to make her a little something. A little bunny. I decided to crochet it instead of knitting it. I can crochet a scarf in a heartbeat (actually a few days...but) and I can knit a scarf in a week. Since I decided to crochet it, the bunny has flown through my fingers and it's almost finished. I can't wait to see if she likes it!

The front half of the bunny. Still needs ears.

Back half of the bunny. Needs arms, and head. and a tail.
