Wascally Wabbits

I seem to have 
an abundance of rabbits in my yard.

 Every time my little granddaughter
comes over,
we immediately begin to search for 
the Hoppies that live at Nana's house.

Sometimes we're lucky and see one,
but most of the time we don't.
We have very sneaky bunnies.

I thought of the two of us
on our wabbit walks
while I stitched
this delightful prim wool table mat.
21" x 28"
This is a pattern designed by 
Lynda Hall and her granddaughters
and was in the 2012 Spring edition of 
Primitive Quilts and Projects.
I had cut the pieces awhile ago
dipping into my wool stash.
The large background piece 
was a wool skirt
 seams and all.

I lighted  up the piece
 using springtime colors.

I used a simple primitive whip stitch
around the shapes,
  either with wool embroidery thread
or perel cotton.

Now that it's spring,
those wascally wabbits might be multiplying.
I'm sure 
on our next wabbit walk
we'll be finding
Hoppies around every corner.

Until Next Time-

  10. Adorable wool runner! the wabbits have such great expressions and personality!
    My grandma had rabbits in her yard and I used to try to catch them with a fishing net. Spent hours to to avail but the chase was fun and I remember it so well.
