Bunnies for my little ones

I am so happy I decided to make these little critters for my little critters for Easter.  

I can't even believe it looking at this picture now, but the day before Easter, when we were planning to attend the Easter celebration with my in-laws, my little guy was totally sick!  He had a fever and slept for almost 4 hours in the afternoon.  My hubby and Addison still went, but Myles and I stayed at home, where it was nice and quiet for him to rest. 

At one point, he looked at me and said "I just want something cozy to snuggle."  Like he KNEW I had these guys waiting in the wings.  Instead of holding off until the next morning, I decided it was the perfect time to give them the little bunnies.  He held onto it all day and I could tell it really made him feel better.  Perfect timing.  

And he was SO MUCH better the next day, so we got to visit my parents and roam around the woods on their property.  It was a great day.  And the bunnies came along everywhere.

I believe they have been named "Sugar" and "Sugar Sprinkle."  Cute.  

The pattern is Brian Bunny, from Amanda Keeys, and it was such a sweet and fun little toy to knit.  I'd make them again in a heartbeat and think it might become a nice little go-to pattern for baby gifts. 

Hexipuff update:

In case you were wondering, and since I am still holding myself accountable for keeping the blog updated on my Beekeeper's Quilt, I had 93 puffs completed at the end of March.  Honestly, I slowed WAY down after that point though, so I'm pretty sure the count for April will be much lower.  With Spring Break in there, Myles getting sick (there's more to that story that involved a trip to the ER later in the week), preparing for my first trunk show this weekend (woot!), and feverishly trying to wrap up some late Spring/early Summer designs, they have taken a back burner.  That's alright though, it's a long-term project and still fun and portable.  They will be back in the pick-up line at school and swimming lessons with me tonight now that break is over! 

Alright, I'm signing off for now....more about the trunk show soon and definitely photos to follow after the event!
