It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like...

Lobsters!

My mom loves tablecloths and old fashioned linens like table runners and napkins. So when she runs across some in a church bazaar or antique store, she sends them to me. This is a table runner which I'm embellishing with lobsters from Lobsters in the Round by hmmm. That chart is two floors up, so maybe I'll have to tell you the designer another time.

And here's a little progress on the Ark. I have made a gross error though, and I'm going to have to frog out the bottom chamber with the squirrel in it; it's one row too narrow. Argh! Don't you hate that?

Meet Elvis! I hated walking past my bunny's empty bunny room, so last week, my sister and I went to the Alexandria Animal Shelter and I adopted this little guy; they sent someone out to inspect my home today and she said I could go get him right away, so I did. He's a lionhead, which is a miniature breed of rabbit. He's young--about a year old, and we decided he should have a bunny companion, so I went online and found another lionhead at the Frederick, Maryland animal shelter. That one is white, with pink eyes. They've called him Pinky, but I'm calling him "Pink," and I can pick him up later this week. Pink looks a lot like the little white bunnies under the tree on the Christmas ornament in the 2007 Just Cross Stitch ornaments issue. Each of them is about 3-4 pounds, fully grown. This is not an especially good picture, because he was adjusting to his new home. More pictures to come!

Welcome Elvis (and eventually, Pink)! What cuties! This is not a breed I've seen before - it's adorable! :D Nothing like bunnies in the house for the holidays!

The Sampler Girl designed Lobsters in the Round. It's one I've long considered doing for my dad. :)

Elvis is so cute! It's great that you're giving him and Pink a good home.

I have 3 English Angoras and I think the faces on lionheads are similarly adorable. :)

I was so sorry to hear that you had to say goodbye to Bunnyman. I'm certain you will miss his sweet little face. The newest addition to your family is a real sweetie too and I bet you can hardly wait for Pink to join you.
Love your lobsters!!!!
