Rabbit Folk

Hi everyone.  It's Saturday and warmer outside than it has been.  My new hard drive is here, I found the Vista recovery discs,  finally got my printer accepted with 7 (the router needed the MAC address for filtering!), so it appears to be the start of a good weekend.  I'm almost afraid to begin the installation and would like to float in the good mood for a while longer.  Hoping your days are going well too.  It seems the older I get, even crap days are to be appreciated, so as long as I am still here to bitch, it's a good day!
 
Haven't worked on Mary in a few days because I did the pear, again and again. This one is final.  Why do I get so involved with things that don't really matter?  You can change colors to your preference! 
 
As I looked for a backing fabric I came across a box with these little guys.  They are stitched on 18 count Aida that looks like oatmeal and need to be finished into ornaments.  Not sure if I will because they're so cute and not my style.  But maybe I could tone down the fabric a little and end up liking them. 
 
 
 
I didn't stitch them and can't remember who did.  They are from this OOP leaflet 19 from Prairie Schooler which is on EBay quite often.  Have you seen the BOAF Gold Santa prices after so many were offered for $15?
 

 
 We've had some cold temps and drizzle and the brats were snuggled in for the entire day.  I've been allowing them into the house and Bud is always a good boy, but Missy and Nitzy are into everything!  I can't catch either one since they don't allow me to pet them.  As soon as my husband gets close, they run for the door.
 
I have to change the comments again since I'm getting hundreds of spams, so if you can't comment and want to contact me for any reason, please use the email link at the top sidebar.  I'll leave it open for anonymous readers when I am offering an item so everyone can enter, but it will change back right after.
  When our elderly dog was having hip and joint problems, I did some research since the dog meds were so expensive and not really safe.  Tramadol was the answer and Walmart was so very reasonable.  It's safer, it worked, and my vet checked into it and uses it now.  So how do the spammers know what I was ordering for years at the pharmacy?  Coincidence?
In answer to anonymous about the Postman Santa, click the Christmas tab beneath the header and the info is posted on the photo.
Wishing everyone a safe and peaceful weekend.
Thank you for visiting!

The bunnies are adorable! I have to check and see if I can find the chart. Thanks for sharing!

Your boys looks so comfy and cozy in their house.

I think the bunnies are so cute! Maybe I'm just that anxious for spring! Hopefully your computer problems are over!

The rabbit folk are cute. Isn't it funny how our tastes change over the years? I bet you could do something with them to make them acceptable. I love PS. Love the pic of the kitties. Good luck with them in the house. They sound like a rambunctious bunch! Can't wait to see the next pear!

$49.99 for the BOAF Gold Santa?! That's crazy! I hope the Vista installation goes smoothly. My next-door neighbor got a new computer with Windows 8 and had to contact Dell a few times ~ they told her they get a lot of calls about it. :( Glad I still have Vista! :)

Again I have to say, I am so glad I have Masterchief here to worry about all that PC stuff. I'm lucky if I know how to turn it on!
The bunnies are cute.
Always enjoy pics of your kitties. They are adorable.

The rabbits are cute but I do understand about stitching something up and then after a while your tastes change and you're not sure what to do with the piece. I usually end up gifting it to someone who I know will appreciate and love them. I wish you all the best with your computer issues and hope this is your final fix to make things run smoothly. I can't thank you enough for letting us know what the postal Santa pattern is. I've been trying to figure out the pattern for some time now. I had even gone back quite a ways to see if you had mentioned it but couldn't find it. I found the book on eBay this morning and can't wait to stitch it up.

Marly I always sit here and go "duhhhh" when you tell me about computer stuff. I don't get any of it.
Those rabbits are precious! The mommy rabbit with her little one! SQUEE♥

Your blog is awesome. I've been following you for some time. Your talents and generous sharing have prompted me to start my own blog - and creating my own cross stitch designs. Please visit me at wisdomwithneedleandthread.blogspot.com.

I've stitched up all your pears and hope to put the final touches on next week. I will post on my blog and link back to you. Is that OK?

Thank you for the inspiration.
