. . . . OR
"How Mr. Rabbit Got His Spots"
Mr. Rabbit is getting a tad impatient . . .
With those long ears he can hear me talking to myself all day in the studio.
Every bit of senseless babble, each whimper with a pin or needle prick, he must think me
quite batty! (He would be correct!)
I'm just thankful he can't see the messy studio just yet!
A "Spotted Hare" is a bit of a signature piece for me.
I thought I would give you a little peek into the process.
First there is the creating of the actual hare.
Cut, sew, stuff . . . yet at this point he is far from done.
Each spot is carefully cut from mohair and treated to prevent fraying edges.
Spots are placed just so and hand stitched, a process that can take about as long as
just creating the actual hare!
A soft brushing blends his spots beautifully with the contrasting color of his fur.
(I'll show him all finished later in the week!)
