Dust Bunny

I'm going to work on Twisted Thread's "Brown Bunny".  With all the adorable bunny antics of late, I felt called to stitch a small brown bunny. 
Here's why:

The quail and bunnies root in the dirt... 

...until they create a nice little bunny-sized (or multiple quail-sized) "dirt bath". 

Mornings and evenings they flop from side to side in the dirt and dust.   They then shake like a dog and hop away.

Some mornings after bathing, the soft, mellow sunlight creates the perfect setting for a 'bunny nap'. 

Hands down, this napping bunny is the cutest bunny ever!

That's adorable! Never had the chance to see a bunny nap. The stitch will be a great reminder.

Great pics! The bunnies in our yard don't stand still for more than a second or two. I don't think I've ever seen one nap, lol. The Brown Bunny chart is adorable.

I love your next project choice, such a sweet design, and those bunny pics are just too dang cute!

I swear! The harmony you seem to have around you. It's wonderful! A bunny so relaxed as to take a nap in full view...birds that eat from your hand...I love it! LOL

Oh, this is one of my favorites, Beth. I have the chart, but haven't stitched it yet so I look forward to following your progress...

Just got back from a week at the beach so I'm way, way behind at blog reading, but I did manage to look through your past 8 posts (still amazes me that you blog daily!!) and loved all of your patriotic finishes, new August header, and all those glorious nature photos--especially the full moon.

Have a great week :)

This is a great little chart that I can not BELIEVE I don't have in my stash. And, of course, the real bunnies are great too. I've been seeing tons of them lately too and I just love them.

Very cute bunny post. At least the stitched bunny will be safe from the cats.
