I wanted to make something a wee bit different … and since it’s been some time since I made a pinkeep, I couldn't pass up this Sleeping Fox, a pattern from Rock River Stitches.

This bunny is ready to do some decorating and has freshly strung decor in hand. She comes with a garland of carrots, bells and baby bunny permanently attached. She is made from stained osnaburg and measures 9 1/2" tall and created using a crows roost pattern. You can prop her for posing standing upright or hang her from the loop attached on her back. Either way, she is sure to get you in the mood for Easter eggs.

Bunn is setting out on a journey, with mega carrot in hand. But just in case things go awry along the way, he stashed a baby carrot in his back pocket. Bunn is a one-sided piece made from a crows roost pattern and can be hung from a loop or propped standing up. H'es Such an awesome piece that measures a tad over 10" tall! Oh, did I forget to mention how much I love his cute little snow white wool tail? He is a looker, to be sure. Be sure to *click the photo* for additional views. 
