High Fiber—Hare-brained Scheme

It might have been a hare-brained scheme to make four bunnies, but I finished the third boy bunny, this one for Johan.





Here's what he looks like without his little kimono. He's wearing garter-stitch booties and soaker, actually knitted as part of the legs and body.…

I finished the second boy bunny, this one for Soren.





He and Zachy's bunny have the same attire, although the bunnies look very different, so we won't get them mixed up at Christmas. Daphne's bunny is wearing Mary Janes, actually knitted as her feet. The two boy bunnies get Nikes (also…

Ta-da! Mr. F. Is finished and waiting for his clothes.





I have one sleeve of his jammies (Union suit?) almost finished, but I've been hand-quilting, as you will see below.

Angels' Wings

In place of my regular blog post this week, I decided to hold sort of a celebration of life for my dear friend, who passed away early Thursday after a prolonged illness.

High Fiber—Monkey Brain

My Mr. F. is moving along.

Mr. F. has been a major UFO since 2009, when I got two arms and one leg done (almost) and quit. Now he's…

I don't have any poodles personally, but I hav had the blessing of working with them. I live on a ranch where my main fiber sources are my Rambouillet sheep, the lifeblood of west Texas.
