So we did.
Using Kim's directions, we altered things a little bit, and made bunnies. The ears are felt with a bit of wire inside to make them bend. Whiskers are pieces of fishing line taped together in the middle but then glued down with a daub of hot glue with a pom-pom nose on top. But they look kind of silly, flying through the air the way they do. I might need to think up some rabbit feet--for luck.
And YES I will tell you guys all about the Maple Festival. But I have a photo yet to take of some of the maple goodies from the festival, so I'm going to save it for another day this week when I have nothing else to photograph. Which will probably happen sooner rather than later--especially if it keeps raining.
