When my own girls were little I made bunnies of some kind for them every year for Easter. I miss that. So I spent my weekend making new bunnies for the adorable grandbabies of my dear friend, Jill. Maybe you remember that I made Maggie's Farm for them too. Darling, darling girls. 

Of course, I used my fabric collection, inventing a pattern with long legs, ears and arms. By the time I was finished with the first, I learned a lot about my pattern (flaws and strengths) and the best way to put each together. Inevitably, each has its own personality when the last stitch is finished up.

Thrills me to see my fabric come to life in yet another way.

And then I had the greatest pleasure in giving them to little Charlotte and Caroline yesterday. Newly three, Charlotte quickly named hers Annabel and agreed that Bluebell would be a good name for her baby sister's.

I can't tell you how much I loved seeing each of them in the arms of a happy child.
