Spring * Easter * Bunnies

Both spring and Easter will soon be here and thoughts of bunny rabbits are rolling thru my brain.  This is a design by Sally Kallin titled Harry, that I hooked.  This shot is after deciding a few years after it was hooked that it really did need a beauty line between the background and border.
This is what it original looked like and am sure you can see that putting the beauty line in helped. And it is obvious the picture was taken with another camera and wish I'd taken another picture of it before the beauty line and then after, but you get the idea.
This is another rabbit themed rug I hooked.   After hooking for a couple years using wool strips thought it would be fun to hook a rug with wool yarn.  I saw this kit on e-bay and purchased it.  There must have been 4 years between starting the rug and finally finishing it because I learned that I hate hooking with yarn because my needle seemed to always go between the plys of wool.  This is a Claire Murray design titled Strawberry Patch.
And, my Edward Tulane just sold to an elementary school teacher. She said that in the spring she always reads the book "The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane" to the students because it has great life lessons which are simple for them to understand. I'm so glad it is going to a teacher and think this is the fourth teacher to purchase one.
I hate that even tho the picture is upright and saved that when posted it goes sideways.   And the rabbit is no longer around for me to take another photo of it.

Have a great week-end and be kind to one another.



  1. I do love that book Edward Tulane. Your bunny is just beautiful.
    I love your bunny rugs.

  2. Saundra,
    The beauty line really sets it off! How did you hook it in after the fact, did you rip out or just cram it in?

  3. Great rug. I remember when you posted about it ages ago. I do like it with the beauty line.
    Hugs ;)

  4. I love the beauty line. It looks like the "jewelry" of the piece!
    Way to go!

  5. love the rabbit rugs!!! denise

  6. Melinda, the rest of the rug was hooked with #8 so the beauty line was probably #3 or #4 cut that I 'corn rowed' between the background and border. Corn row is a term used by Bev Conway and what farmers do to make best use of planting by staggering the rows.


  7. Hi Saundra everything you hook looks great!!
