Liz, you asked and you shall receive....... a picture of my Edward Tulane. I provided the incorrect title of the book in my previous post and you probably picked up on that. The title of the book is The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane.
As I alluded to in yesterday's post, a grandmother and child read the book together, cried together and grew to love this rabbit together. I was told by the grandmother that there were many life lessons to be learned in this book and good source for children to learn of those life lessons thru the rabbit. So the grandmother asked me to design and make a rabbit for her granddaughter in time for Christmas a few years ago.
Before selling it I posted a picture of that one on my web site to see if there were other people who might search for and Edward as well. So I made another to have on hand in case I did receive another order.... and, much to my surprise I did ~ again and again.
About two weeks before going to Barb Carroll's I sold the one I had in stock (I only make one every once in a while when I get the urge because I'd rather be hooking). And then one week before leaving for Barb's and when I'm frantically getting my suitcase packed, gathering wools and hooking supplies I get another order. Not for one but TWO Edward Tulane's; oh my gawd! All I could think was how this was going to impact my hooking time once I got home ~ and it surely has. But in about a week these two will be shipped and I will get back to my love of hooking again without feeling guilty for sitting and pulling loops for a while.
