Fran hooked a checkerboard pattern in the rabbit's bodies to give it the optical illusion they are moving. She said "...it was one of those happy surprises you see when you've finished a mat, stand back and see the rabbits dancing".
And Robin was right, the rabbits were hooked using the beading technique with #8 strips of off white and blue.
Lauren recently finished her Patriotic Dancing Rabbits also.
Laurel sent me her 1st finish which is lovely. But she said it didn't turn out quite as she first envisioned. She was thinking more of a Magdalena style but lighter colors. I know the feeling Laurel, my desire was to hook that antique look with blocks of different background colors.
It's definitely looking like spring and Margaret's bunnies are dancing with joy because they found a cache of Easter eggs.
My kitchen is looking a bit more spring like also. Very rarely do I display this Claire Murray rug design named Strawberry Patch. I thought it would be fun to experience hooking with yarn, the kit was on ebay and purchased it. That was my first experience with an all yarn rug and my last; but must admit it is cute. I also made the paper clay rabbit container. The rug is for sale and measures 29 x 33.5.
