These are two of the colors in the Easter egg dye package.

Wet the white yarn, put in vinegar and drops of green Easter egg dye.  


After the green is set, add magenta drops in various places then continue the heating to set the magenta.


Combining the green and magenta yarn with white, here is a beautiful hat.

Lindsay Sees Bunny Cloud

Lindsay is on her way to Belgium to visit relatives.   She took off from Sacramento to
Chicago to connect to Munich in Germany then to Venice in Italy and finally to Belgium.   At one of her connecting points, she writes,  
  "Just took these pics out the plane window. Don't you think it looks like a rabbit?"


What do you think?

Baby Bunny Enjoys Fruit

Betty says,
I have encountered some of my fellow breeders who are not in favor of giving rabbits fruits and veggies.  I believe rabbits and bunnies should have a diverse diet that includes rabbit pellets as the main feed with grains as supplements and various treats in moderation.   In two previous posts, I showed that my rabbits enjoyed 1/4 piece of wheat bread each day.
Here is my single baby English Angora bunny that enjoys her daily fruit treats; she is only a little over 4 weeks old.
Watermelon, that's nice.


Watermelon tastes good.


Cantaloupe is not bad either.


I am enjoying the cantaloupe

Bunnies or Piglets?

These fat babies, bunnies or piglets?

One chestnut and three fawn bunnies, the chestnut takes after mama HGF Meara and the three fawn take after daddy HGF Jim.   Mama HGF Meara has enough milk to feed an army and these four bunnies are as fat as piglets.


At two weeks old they look more like three weeks old; they are outgrowing their bed.

Found on the Net: Winner of a Competition

This is the winning entry of a competition in Taiwan.  What kind of competition?  Can anyone guess?


Here is the creator of this entry that won the "Bread Making" competition. 

The entry looks more like an art creation than an eatable collection of bread.
