Unfinished Buniness

Nope, that is not a typo.  This really is about unfinished bunnies.

I'm on a quest to finish an "undisclosed number" of "projects" before starting anything new (not counting the new crocheted shrug I started two nights ago!  Augghhh!).  Lately I have not been too good about finishing things.  Starting something new is Just So Much Fun!  Am I right?

Actually, I love this little rug and am very excited to see it so near completion.  Several years ago I came across a painting on an art website - see the color copy of the painting in the upper left corner of the photo.  The artist was listed as "unknown" - so no one to be upset at me if I copy it!
I thought the composition and colors and of course The Bunnies would be perfect for a hooked rug.  I filed it away for awhile, then set about converting the color copy to an enlarged black and white copy, then to red dot, then to the linen background.  My rug hooking teacher, Anita White, helped me pick out the wool.  I wanted to stay pretty true to the painting.  My straw is a bit darker, and my bunnies are not quite as detailed, but I think it is translating very well overall.  I plan to frame it.

Question is...  how long will it take me to get there?  I hope to show you Finished Buniness very soon!  (Spell Check really objects to my word Buniness...)  Maybe putting it here on the blog will give me a little extra motivation!


  1. I love the bunnies. I think the black outline gives it an old feel. Love that style.
    Anita White is not to far from where I live in the Ozarks.

  2. Really nice, Amy!! We love bunnies!
