Let your soul stand ajar, always ready to welcome the ecstatic experience. ~ Emily Dickinson

Once upon a time there were three rabbits!  They lived on the edge of a wooded meadow and loved to grow carrots!  One day Walter, the oldest brother, decided to venture to Canada, since he heard that carrots were highly sought after there!!  He has since settled into his "forever home" and plans on spending his time entering his carrots in the county fair. 

The other two rabbits, Woodley, and Winfield, are the younger brothers of Walter, and they are also carrot farmers!! 

Woodley is the "middle rabbit" and always feels like he is in his older brother's shadow, so he has decided to try lots of county fairs all over the country and not just the the local meadow!  He is just sure he will win and then get the attention he so deserves! 

Not to be outdone, the youngest brother, Winfield, has to do everything that Woodley does because he wants to be just like him when he grows up, so he is also entering his special carrot and hopes big brother will be proud of him when he wins the grand prize!  ! 

Let's hope that each brother wins a prize so this "Tale" can end.......happily ever after, as all good tales do!!!        The End!

As you can see, I have been busy creating these rabbits and have had such fun "bringing them to life" using some wonderful patterns by Netty Lacroix!!  I always love rabbits any time and made them for an  "everyday rabbit," rather than just for spring or Easter!  If you would like to know a bit more about them, you can "hop" on over to my picture trail to take a closer look!!  They would love to meet you!

Wishing you a lovely day with a "Happy Ending"!

Dear Julie:
That was such a sweet post.
I remember hearing the name Nettie Lacroix, but I can't remember where or when.
The rabbits are so darn adorable. You did a grand job making them.
Have a very Happy Easter, Julie.
