This will be quick, because we're headed out to "Bark!" for a benefit for Bright Eyes Sanctuary, the wonderful bunny rescue who rescued Pink. We'll do a second post this afternoon with pictures from that event. In the meantime, if you live nearby, think about going to one of the Clarksville or Olney, MD locations from noon to 4:00 p.m. I'm headed for Olney. Bark! is a wonderful place with premium pet food of all kinds. You know that with 3 bunnies and 6 cats, I'm going to be stocking up. There will be rabbits to adopt as well from Bright Eyes Sanctuary; BF has warned me not to come back with any other little bunnies.
School has pretty much faded away, so I had more time this week to stitch. I ordered a pale blue 40 ct fabric from Picture This Plus, which arrived yesterday. You know I had to put just a few stitches in to the Eliz. Welford Sampler (Handwork) to see how it would look. This isn't the best light, because it's very gray today.
I worked quite a bit on Scarlet Letter's "Diligence."
There are lots of specialty stitches in this sampler. Here are a few: rice stitch (the light green), backstitch, four-sided stitch, queen stitches.
I've looked at this sampler for years and finally ordered it. Ann Wallace. I started kitting it up yesterday. Oddly, the required AVAS thread for the huge building IRL is brown, not gray, so I'm thinking of changing it to gray. I don't think the brown has the same impact.
Audrey arrived this week, bearing gifts, from Hef's Mom at the Bunny Lounge. Audrey and Bearly There are discussing Audrey's upcoming trip to Bark!
Pink knows that I will be visiting with Glenna Bun, who lost her lovely pink ears to frostbite. Mama Patti, as we refer to Patti Henningsen in our house, has nursed Glenna Bunn through horrible surgeries and has never given up on her. Pink says he's grateful for his soft pink ears and for Mama Patti, who's pretty much the Mother Theresa of bunnies, as far as he's concerned.
Back later with pictures from Bark!
