Easter through the house...

This is my kitchen table finished. My mother walked .7 of a mile every morning. The year before she died, as she took her daily walk, she left one of the five bunnies in the yard by a bunny that I had on display. She did this as a surprise for me. The eggs on the tree are crochet and also the eggs in the grass.
These decorations are on a bookcase that I inherited at my mother's death.
This is the decoration in the center of the den bay window.

This is not a clear picture but it is done in pastel color with rabbits on every tier. I don't have candles, but then I never would light them.

Cross stitch eggs are hanging in the side window of our bay in the den.

This is a combination of cross stitch and hardanger and I have it on the fridge door.
I am sorry that the above picture it out of focus. I have these cross stitch pieces done for each month.
Cross stitch piece that I placed in a wooden hoop, added lace and ribbon. This is hanging on our back door.

  12. Marie,

    I love all your bunnies and the story about your Mom leaving a bunny after each walk made me cry. It was a happy cry, though.

    Hugs, Gretchen
