Sewing Progress

We're almost finished with assembling the quilt that batting is meant for.  It is going to be so nice, but really, it's annoying the shouting we hear with each stitch.  Okay, kitties have appeared on the fabric of the last couple of quilts, but Brother has no right to accuse us of trying to make him an accessory to sewing!  The kitties were a coincidence, not a plot!

Saturday, June 29, 2013


There is a large piece of batting spread over the table, to allow the wrinkles to fall out before fluffing it in the dryer, and hopefully applying a quilt to it by tomorrow or Monday.  You know, we are starting to see some advantages to Brother's desertion.  He would never have left our nice batting alone to allow the wrinkles to settle.  He would have attacked it, we are sure, and possibly amused himself ripping it to bits just to annoy us.  Hmmm.  Maybe if he thinks we are seeing the up side to his escape, he'll return just to annoy us!

Seed Purchase

We bought seven packs of squash seed today, along with a pack of eggplant seed, and a pack of radish seed.  Nine packs in all.  You should have heard the shouts and threats to see us in court, but in our opinion and we are sure the opinion of the legal community, if Brother isn't living here, he has forfeited his right to object to ANYTHING we do or buy!  If he wants to object he will have to move in, but he better hurry.  We're hopping out to plant the seeds in the morning!

Backyard Bunnies

We told the nicest family of bunnies that it was perfectly fine with us if they installed a burrow in the backyard.  Would you believe that cat has been listing such a high rent for the property that bunnies were unable to afford to move in?  Well, since that deserter of a feline isn't here at the moment, we dropped the rent, and now the nicest bunnies are here.  And Brother won't be able to do a thing about it when he returns.  We guaranteed the rent price in a binding contract!

Zoo Break-In

We heard the oddest news today.  Apparently a bear tried to break into the zoo.  We can only assume he was planning to establish his den there, thinking the fence might prevent Betsy Bear from popping in to rob him of all of his honey.  Really, if that was his plan, he should have consulted a map.  We live maybe a mile or so from the zoo, putting it in the heart of Betsy Bear territory.  If this poor bear wants to live someplace that might be marginally safer, we recommend he apply to move in down at that large mouse's dwelling in Florida.  At least Betsy only turns up there occasionally, and they're very bear friendly.  He might even be able to find work in one of the shows.

Do you suppose Brother will wonder what happened to the rent money from the hole he is renting out when he gets back?  It just occurred to us that he might ask about that at some point.  We've been collecting it, you see, along with some money for a few new bird tenants.  There's no way he can demand we repay him, right?  He fled and left us to manage the property.  All cash should count as bunny money as a result.

Next Week's Sale

The fabric store has a lovely sale planned for next week.  They will have thread, batting and all sorts of materials designed to aid the construction of quilts and clothing for sale.  Do you think we should warn the fabric people they need to keep a close eye out for kittens at this event?  We don't know why Brother would attack it.  We're even thinking about buying some patterns to make clothing for him while they're on sale.  We expect much kitten hostility none the less.

The Car

The oddest thing happened with the car yesterday, while we were on our way to go fabric hunting with the human and grandhuman.  The key got stuck and couldn't be removed, which meant we couldn't turn the car off.  The humans had to rush it to the repair shop, which, on the up side, had the advantage of being near two places with fabric for us to prowl though.  We wonder if we should consider sabotage.

Quilt Ideas

We hope the grocery store is insured.  That poor, poor store.  They're soon going to face a kitten attack.  We hopped down there today and got not one but two ideas for lovely quilts that we have sketched so far, and there was the nicest bunny design quilt that we need as well.  We think you can imagine the screams.  The polar bears were right about how much fun quilting is, though.  Doesn't Brother want us to enjoy ourselves?

Air Report

There is still no progress in getting the main air fixed, leaving the human's room as the only place with air in the house.  Of course, all of us live in here, so we're perfectly happy, but we're not sure about Brother when he is recaptured.  We're sure he'll try to make a fuss about having to sleep with us, but really we don't know what his problem is.  It isn't our fault the main air is still broken and looks likely to stay broken until next summer at this rate.  And anyway, how loudly could our elephant siblings snore?

Maybe Found Him!

We might have found Brother!  Oh, happy day, that cat might be finally about to be recaptured and returned to us where he belongs!  We received a report today that he has been spotted, or at least a kitten who looks like him has been spotted.  It just has to be confirmed that it is Brother, and then he can be drug home!  And we swear for the trouble he has caused, we are going to pop him onto the quilt assembly line!  A few months of sorting squares ought to shape him up nicely.

New Idea

The human visited the bank today, and you won't believe this, but she found an excellent idea for a bunny novel while she was there.  Did we mention that our bank is one store over from the Burger King where we suspect Brother is lurking?  Josie Rabbit was in the back seat of the car when the human got the wonderful story idea, and she said she heard the most awful shouts coming from that direction, and then threats to take the bank to court.  Really, is is NOT illegal to encourage rabbits!

Today's Purchases

We hope the shrieks didn't bother anyone.  We got some lovely backing fabric for a quilt today, along with border fabric, and the nicest batting.  Needless to say that deserter of a feline wasn't thrilled with our purchases and kept shrieking and acting like we were committing some horrible crime.  We're surprised they didn't turn store security on him.

New Quilt

We have completed a lovely little quilt, in a perfect bunny size.  So cute, and it will be so cozy for us to snooze under.  Oh, you should have heard the kitty shrieks.  We're sure that a finished quilt is not a crime, and if Brother tries alerting the law, we're sure they'll tell him this too, and maybe they will capture and drag him home too, as a fugitive!

Sunday, June 16, 2013


We got a new ruler for sewing purposes today.  It's a big thing, and would make a nice kitty prodder too, come to think about it.  Oh, and we found out that the new fabric store is having a sale on clothing material too.  We wonder if we should alert them to keep an eye out for kittens planning to attack their merchandise before we can hop in to make purchases?

Saturday, June 15, 2013


The human has added a chair to her room, which will allow her to read in comfort, and us to quilt in comfort.  Brother is so unhappy.  Hehehehehehehehe!  He has cause to object to anywhere we chose to sit, though, as he has deserted us.  We can sit wherever we like until he gets his tail back here to occupy a seat.  We think we'll go do some sitting and sewing right now!

Brother's Shrieks

Brother isn't happy once more.  We went out with the human today, and the library thoughtfully allowed us to borrow several books on constructing quilts.  Really, we don't think that was a crime at all, and certainly nothing they need punishment for but you should have heard the shrieks.  And we asked a new bear to move in too, bringing our sibling count to 765, so there was more shouting.  We're surprised Brother hasn't developed laryngitis at the rate he is shrieking.

Thursday, June 13, 2013


We have came up with the perfect plan for a kitten trap to recapture Brother.  We're going to take the package that the human's book came in, the package that upset Brother so, that he was sure was full of seeds, and we're going to cover it in sticky glue, and then poke it on the porch, like it was just dropped off.  Brother will undoubtedly come rushing to try to snatch it, and he will be trapped!  He won't be able to flee with his paws stuck to a package, and we can drag him inside where he belongs!

Wednesday, June 12, 2013


We got a package today in the mail, and you should have heard the screams.  It was a rather large package, and apparently Brother is sure it was stuffed full of seed.  We tried to say it was just a book the human won in a contest, but we don't think he was convinced, and we fear he is plaining something evil for the mailman.  Do you think we should warn him to beware of kittens?

The air is still functioning well.  If we could only recapture that cat now.  We don't know why he's being so stubborn about returning home.  It isn't hot at all in the human's room.  We'll even move over and make plenty of space available for Brother right under the air conditioner if he likes.  Well, the human is going to the chiropractor in a day or two.  Here's hoping he's spotted the fugitive feline.

Today's Power Report

No power failures today, thank goodness.  Not that the heat really bothers us.  With our big ears we have built in fans and do fine in warm weather, but with Brother trying to use the heat and lack of air as an excuse for not moving back in, a power failure is not what we need to deal with.  As far as that cat needs to know, we have working air again, so he can just get that long snakey tail back in this house where he belongs!

Power Failure

The power went out a bit ago.  It's back on again, but we are a bit concerned.  We're charging all of the electronics, and making plans should there be a second failure to hustle the human off to the library or McDonalds where there might be functioning air and internet access.  Really, what is the power company doing?  First thanks to them we have had no air for weeks and weeks, and now this.

Saturday, June 8, 2013


The human was still feeling a bit bad, so we didn't go to the country today.  We did something Brother is sure to find even WORSE!  We got an air conditioner for the human's room, so now it's all comfy cozy in there.  Brother no longer can use the heat as an excuse to not move back in with us.  And since the air conditioner is in the human's room, where were all sleep as well, Brother will be spending so much more time with us, now won't he?

Just Occurred to Us

Well, yesterday's blog post hasn't been tampered with, and something just occurred to us.  The local library is closed on Fridays, so if Brother had trotted there to do the previous tampering, then he wouldn't have been able to mess with last night's blog this morning.  We think we might be onto something as far as determining his whereabouts.  He has probably tricked the librarians into thinking we know he's down there!  They're our friends, and we're sure wouldn't let that cat pop online to cause us trouble if they knew he was a fugitive.  We think we'll have to hop down there in the morning, and give them a wanted poster with Brother's picture.  Then maybe they'll be able to corner him for us.

Found It

We found and just put back up our missing post, but we are highly suspicious about how it went missing.  It had to be that cat!

This Weekend

The human is feeling slightly better today, and we now have hopes of going to the country this weekend.  The humans who are our neighbors at the country cottage are having a picnic and we would all love to go.  The only think we're not sure of is how many carrots we should pack to make grilled carrot dogs.  Do you think there will be a lot of other bunnies there who might enjoy them?  We didn't have time to talk to our new country rabbit friends before we left last time, so we don't know if they intend to picnic or not.  We guess if we run out of carrots, surely someone will have some in their garden we can pull up for grilling.

Very Odd

Something strange is going on here.  We hopped on to post tonight, only to see that our post from yesterday has gone missing.  We know we clicked post, but it's nowhere to be found.  You know, we've heard Burger King is offering free wi-fi.  Could Brother have got his paws on someone's tablet or phone and hopped online to bother our posting?  Maybe we should change the blog password to be safe.

We have had the most wonderful idea, for offering classes on constructing quilts, or more specifically, on constructing matching human and bunny or bear sized quilts.  We're sure that many humans would sign up for such things, especially human children.  Now if the human's illness would just get better so we could start working on lesson plans instead of carrying handkerchiefs and vitamin C.  Really, Brother ought to be ashamed of exposing her to that ragweed.

Human Update

The human is on antibiotics and a stronger anti-histamine due to her cold, and we are very suspicious.  We found a bouquet of RAGWEED right outside the door!  The human is allergic to that!  We checked around, and the squirrel across the street spotted some creature with pointy ears dropping it off.  He wasn't close enough for an identification, but the pointy ears make us feel sure that the creature in question is Brother.  He probably thinks if the human is ill, we will soon run out of thread, and as long as she's zonked out on anti-histamines, she won't be able to run us to the store for more spools.  Well, we will show him!  If necessary, we will get a bus pass!  That cat ought to be ashamed of himself!

Poor Human

The poor human is ill with either allergies, a cold, or both so our post tonight will be short. She's just leaving the computer on long enough to check her games before the anti-histamine kicks in. We wonder if we can blame this on Brother?

Sale Report

The sale went well, we are happy to say. Thank goodness many of the shoppers we attracted were a bit older, and didn't have rabbit like hearing, so the kitty shrieks when they picked stuff up didn't bother them. We made a tidy amount of money, and we're already looking forward to the next sale. We think we shall do a craft sale. We've already found several lovely deals on scrapbooking stuff to offer, and then we are going to cut out quilt pattern templates for sale. We can already hear the screaming!
