Soon it will be Easter

Here's a flashback with bunnies galore.

It took me about 90 minutes attach 17 buttons. 
I'm pretty pleased with it.

Design - "The Rabbit Alphabet"
Designer - JBW Designs
Fabric - 28 count Antique white linen
Fibers - Crescent Colours - "Betty Bluebell" - 2 strands over 2 threads (used 3 skeins)
Started - 31 August 2012
Completed - 24 October 2013

Only three kinds of woodpeckers in the last while.

My male Hairy Woodpecker comes by maybe twice a week.

There seems to be seasonal ebbs and flows with Hairy Woodpecker feeder activity.

The two male Acorn Woodpeckers remain active.

I've been enticing them with loose peanuts.  Easy to pick up and eat.

Lots of Flicker activity.

Here's a male...

...and a female.

Time for me to bring in the feeders at night!  My neighbor shared this photo Thursday morning. A bear pulled over her feeding post, but thankfully did not bend or break it.

Oh Beth, the Rabbit Alphabet is lovely.

Your Rabbit flashback piece is adorable, Beth. There have been a couple bear sightings in our neighborhood as well. Happy Friday!

I enjoyed seeing your Rabbit Alphabet again! Lots of buttons! Yesterday I put six on one piece...that was enough for me! I saw Flickers yesterday...lots of them, in a field at Back Bay, along with lots of Robins! Haven't even checked my pictures... but I should be posting to the blog soon. Have a great Easter! Hugs!

Absolutely one of my favorite finishes of yours, Beth--the bunnies, the blue, the buttons! Perfect :)

Wishing you and the birdies a happy Easter weekend!

I do love the shade of blue you've used - very apt for Easter weekend with all the bunnies. It's not Spring weather with us today - we had snow earlier.

The picture with the feeder knocked over looks like the squirrel did it!

Love the woodpeckers! Love seeing how the flickrs use their tails. Hope those bears don't do any harm around your place!

Dear Beth,

the Rabbit Alphabeth is very nice.
The pictures from the woodpecker are great.

I wish happy easter.
