Bunny Love!

Bunny Rabbit, which has yet to be named is finished except for final detailing touches such as more shading, grooming, accessories and selective plucking (ouch!) I'm not even sure if "it" is a male or female yet. Hmmmmmm, it doesn't seem to matter to this little gal in the photo that I'm sharing does it?

Bunny has a head!

Well, I've sewn up the entire rabbit and stuffed the wee head. Now I need to figure out if I want he/she to have lop ears going downward or ears pointing upward. Anyone have a suggestion? Mind you they are only pinned on for now and the eyes are pins for an idea only. They aren't even in the final position, which will be another decision to make. You can change a whole critter's expression just by the placement of the eyes or nose, etc.... I need to put it together with the joints and finish stuffing it. I believe this will have the tiny glass beads for weight, since it is quite smallish. More to follow!

What I'm trying to do next...

The photos here show my next creation in progress. A mohair bunny rabbit is what it is supposed to be, but we'll see what happens. As you can see in the last photo, I have a little helper who sometimes makes things take quite awhile longer to accomplish. She is such a character and fun to be around, but it will be quite some time before she's really able to help with this sort of thing ;)
I'll try to post more as I'm able as this develops...
Please click the photos to see them full size!

Can you find him?

Coffee beans, java, joe, wakeup juice...
This image has been around for awhile, but while drinking a cup of the stuff I decided to share it with those of you who haven't seen it. There really is a man in this! Also, they say that if you can spot him within 1 minute, then the right half of your brain is developed better than most people. I have no idea if this is true, but thought it was fun to find him. For the record, I believe that I spotted him in about half a minute. When you do see him you'll wonder why he didn't stick out immediately. Strange huh?

Let me know if you DON'T see him and I'll tell you where he is :) This isn't a trick, he really is there!

OK, I'll admit that today I was really bored and it was so cold I didn't even want to think about bundling up my Granddaughter and myself to get out just for the sake of going somewhere. So......I made a weird, ecclectic little collage of googled images and came up with this. Hopefully I've not infringed on any copywrited materials. Please forgive me if you notice that I have and by all means let me know, eek.
So here's my "caffeine junkie java joe coffee collage"
