Tulip bunnies, slugs, and a new kitty doll

Red, orange, yellow, blue tulip print Hug Me Bunny rabbit art toys by Elizabeth RuffingI hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving. I got a little sewing in. These are my tulip bunnies. I’ve had this fabric for a long time, and could never decide what I should make with it. It is very bright, cheerful, and showy, and needed a project where it could stand alone.

I’m sending him and some others out tomorrow. I hope the lines at the Post Office will be reasonable. From what I’ve heard, Monday is when people run in to start mailing all the things they braved Black Friday to purchase as gifts.

Bright yellow fleece Hug Me Slug art toy by Elizabeth RuffingI’ve been avoiding the stores myself this weekend, but still need to make a run for some food. I’m not crazy about the idea of diving into the crowds.

Art nouveau cotton print fabricsI did get to the fabric stores this week though, and picked up some pretty new prints I intend to use for more bunnies. I have a couple of sock kittens to dress as well, but I am using solid colors and some decorative machine stitching on their clothes.

Tabby kittens and Josie on cat tree, by Elizabeth RuffingThe kitten sisters had their big spay day on Monday, and they got their microchips and their booster shots. They needed to rest for a couple of days. They are back to their usual selves now, and staying out loose in the house after bedtime. They have been surprisingly well behaved and quiet at night.

Bertie gets a bath, by Elizabeth RuffingThey still do plenty of tearing around, in between napping. They’ve been getting along well with the other cats here. Bertie asked for this bath.
