After falling in love with a picture of a harp-playing hare from a mediaeval illuminated manuscript, Dr. Karen started making applique rabbits on cushions and cases for her friends. She said..."When I saw the My Fabric Heaven “Lacy Rabbit”, I couldn’t resist making it. I first made a pink one, before I realised that another friend, librarianship lecturer Anne, shared my enjoyment of mediaeval rabbit illustrations. Some “printed pages” material in my fabric stash looked ideal for a bookish friend, so I set to work making a bookish Lacy Rabbit for Anne." Bookish bunny then traveled from Karen in Scotland to his new home in London with Anne.
And here is the finished result...thank you Anne for taking these wonderful photos of Bookish Bunny... and thank you Karen for sharing the story behind this lovely gift!
Have a great weekend Heavenly Stitchers!! xx
