Spring is here and Easter is in a few days. This year, to get into the spirit of the season, I’ve made a few bunnies.
I had brown Lizbeth #698 size 10 on shuttles already, so I used that and white Lizbeth #601 size 10. The bunny head is a ring, the body are chains, and the tail is a Single Shuttle Split Ring.
The brown bunny without a tail is the first one I made. Those are feet instead of a tail, so he’s facing front instead of back. The hardest part of the ones with tails is not seeing the white at the top of the body when finishing off the bunny. I plan on using these on bookmarks or cards so used a bit of glue on the back after tying a knot at the back. That way I didn’t have to hide the ends of the white thread.
These were fun and easy to make, though I haven’t done as many as I’d like. I had a few days off from work last week but I hardly tatted at all. My sister and I took a little trip for a little sister time. I did a lot of driving and a lot of talking.
Our little trip included a visit to one set of grandchildren this last weekend. We decorated Easter eggs together. It was a lot of fun, though they had to finish all the eggs we started with their mother.
I plan on seeing the other set of grandchildren this next weekend. Not sure if we’ll color eggs or not. If we can’t all get together at the same time for Easter, this will have to be the next best thing.
“May your Easter be filled with lots of Easter eggs, presents from the Easter bunny, blessings from Jesus Christ and most of all happiness that lasts for a life time. I’m sending lots of love on your way. Happy Easter to you.”
