More about Steel or not to Steel

From left to right are three littermate bunnies: black, chestnut and steel.

The black bunny's tummy is black, the same color as the rest of the body.

The chestnut has a light colored tummy, and it has light eye circles and nostril half moons.

The steel bunny has the same color tummy as the rest of the body, black with brownish color undercoat.  

These three bunnies are Satin Angora.

Neon Yarn into Neon Scarf

Carolyn has an idea of putting the neon colors together for a scarf.  Betty implements the idea.
The yarn looks like a very colorful Easter egg.


Here is a close up of the neon colored yarn.

Here is the knitted heavy neck scarf knitted by Carolyn.   Strips are created by intermittently putting orange and green in the main color of hot pink.  There is no change of yarn and there is no ends to be tucked in when the scarf is done.

What is a scarf without a cute bunny enjoying it?  Angeline approves the beautiful work.

Ida has a Busy Schedule

Ida was a Best In Show winner...

and a TV star...

and was filmed for a German TV program...

After she retired from the show circuit, she takes on the job as a therapy bunny.    Matilda is thrilled to get the chance to hold Ida.

Ida comforts Theresia when she recovers from her surgery.

April says,

Ida has been very busy, she went to the senior home on Wednesday, then to the girls club in the same evening, then went to visit a handicap boy the next day.   Today she has bunny picture with the Easter bunny.   Everyone at PetSmart loved her and she rode the conveyer belt to the cash register, never flinched.  People were taking pictures of her.   Ida is always on the run to various places to do her job.    Percy goes but he doesn't really like visiting but to give Ida a break sometimes.   Ida is a little hambone and is so perfect, never poops or pees, waits till she gets home to her cage.

Winner Takes All

What's in the bushes?

It's me, remember me? I am the winner of the duel.

This is my territory, I am the patrol officer.

I am at your service.

I check the shady areas, ...

I am in action very quickly...

I can spring like a cheetah ...

and I am not afraid in going into the nooks and crannies.
