A Trip of Rabbits

I had to take a break from working on the mother cottontail rabbit and kittens in order to make some butterflies, flowers and birds for an upcoming series of courses and workshops I will be teaching starting in March. If you are interested in learning how to needle felt or in strengthening your skills there is still some spaces available in my Spring 2013 courses and workshops. To find out more about the courses or to sign up please visit my website.

Now that I am finished preparing for the Spring courses, I am back to working on  the rabbits.

This particular sculpture is really putting my mind to spring.  It seems, to me, an appropriate sculpture to be working on at this time of year with Rabbit's archetypal energy being connected to creativity, renewal, fertility and lunar energy.  There is nothing like baby bunny energy to get you geared up for spring!

By the way, the title of this post "A Trip of Rabbits" is one of the ways of referring to a group of rabbits.  I have always been fascinated by the naming of groups of animals.  Other ways of referring to a group of rabbits are a Warren, a Colony, a Trace, and a Bury.  Interesting isn't it?


Tapestry News:
I am about halfway through my third tapestry sampler.  In my Patron blog I share what I discovered about the complexity of tapestry weaving, despite its simple plain weave technique.  

Interested in learning about my exploration into tapestry weaving?
