Mmmmmm ....chocolate.........................

Mr. Bumblevee thought I had splurged and treated him to Easter "chockies" early. With a smile, he reached for one and the whole basket lifted....hahahhah..... Not dark chocolate! Plastic! From Michael's. Sure does look like the real thing though...and...is perfect for a little something for bunny to ride in the parade.













I bought a little stagecoach... ripped off its wheels...stuck them on the basket, and, voila...my Easter Parade float was ready to roll.













She, (who as yet has no name), is made from a white wool ... almost like a boucle, with a bit of stretch. First time I have used buttons for jointing and I love it. So quick and easy too.













Her whiskers are broom bristles and she has black glass eyes.
With bent legs she can sit on something.....or, anything ....













uhm......I don't think those will hatch sweetie...













This is my attempt at a second Rufus...not quite the same..but close..... and he is looking a bit worried at the size of this bunny even if she is only 6.5 inches tall. I think she may have been squeezing him a bit tight too.
