Christmas Apologies

First off, we would like to offer our apologies to anyone who was missing presents that they were expecting to find from Santa under the tree this year.  Due to rain, we didn't visit the country like we were hoping, and thus Betsy Bear was able to raid Santa's sack and give his poor reindeer such a fright that they are probably seeking therapy even as we speak.  If you are missing food gifts, they have been eaten.  We're sorry about that.  If you're missing some other item, please contact Betsy about ransom demands.

In addition to apologizing for Betsy, which is something we seem to do with every major holiday, we would also like to apologize for all of the kitty shrieks.  The human managed to find a major branch on her family tree last night and we spent hours helping her poke at it.  Brother was not happy though, and apparently he has someone's cell phone permanently, although why they are paying a bill for a phone that is in the paws of a cat, we will never know, but anyway, he kept texting us all night, demanding to know why he was hearing a tree growing, and to stop whatever we were doing to encourage that horrible tree to grow at once.  Really, we're very sorry about that, and we hope the noise didn't spoil anyone's Christmas.

Continuing Book Shrieks

We're sorry for the continuing shrieks about the evil of books.  We really hope it isn't disturbing anyone unduly.  We found a few more lovely book deals, plus a lot of good stuff at the library and Brother is pitching a fit.  Honestly, at the rate he is going, we are expecting phone damage at any moment, with all of his messages about why is he hearing so much turning of pages, and for us to get our paws away from the library and off of those books right away, and we better not dare give them to the human and encourage her.  We just hope he doesn't find out that we're taking part in another library display this month.  If he found out about that the phone would be doomed for sure!

Sorry for Last Night

We're very sorry about the kitty shrieks last night.  We hope they didn't disturb anyone's sleep.  We found fifteen books in a series the human loves and purchased them for her, since the price was absolutely wonderful.  Fifteen books for fourteen dollars!  Isn't that great?  We really thought it was, but Brother disagreed, and every time we thought he had settled down, he was texting us again with complaints about the number of books, and how many pages they have, and the estimated time to read them and demanding to know what we are up to that we need the human to be that occupied with reading.  Really, we hope he didn't keep anyone awake.  We bought the books nice and early too, but you wouldn't know that from the hours he was ranting at.

Friday, November 18, 2016


We were hoping to go up to the country last night, or bright and early this morning.  We have a woodpecker up there who is interested in renting a hole and we were hoping to show it to him. Or possibly to upsell him to a birdhouse.  Only the humans had someone take a look at the truck's tires before they got ready to leave only to learn that one of them had been poked with a NAIL!  So they couldn't leave last night and by the time the tire was fixed this morning, it was too late to head up there. How the tire ended up with a nail in it is what we would like to know.  That tire has been nowhere near any nails!  We are suspicious that this was some horrible form of kitty sabotage, possibly to keep us from renting out some property.  Well, if Brother was responsible, we have lovely news for him.  Now the humans are thinking of spending all of next weekend in the country since they didn't get to go today.  Just think of all of the renting we will be able to do with a long weekend to work!

Weekend Apologies

Sorry for the noise this weekend.  We hope it didn't disturb anyone unduly.  We took a lovely little trip to the country that Brother didn't take well.  It was so annoying, all weekend we kept getting texts demanding to know what we were doing in the country, and to just get our cotton tails home at once, and then more texts demanding to know why we were still there, and what were we up to, and we better not be plotting a move, and we especially better not be plotting a move that we will expect him to take part in.  Really, he is going to destroy the phone some day.  We are sure of it.  We better warn you now, too, that we might be hopping back to the country on Friday.  Please guard your ears accordingly.

Sorry for Brother's Latest Shriek Fest

Sorry for all of the noise that Brother made yesterday.  The humans had to attend a funeral and on the way we stopped at a quilt shop and found a hard to get quilt book.  Brother didn't take it well, and even though he was probably eighty miles or more away we still heard the shrieks right before we got hit with the mass of texts, demanding that we just hop out of that store right away, and to drop anything we might have in our paws as well.  And then we dropped into a book store, and of course he had to pitch a fit about that too.  We really hope the noise didn't bother anyone.  We're just keeping our paws crossed that he doesn't find anything to rant about tonight.  It's the human's birthday and we don't want him to damage the phone with text bombs.

Halloween Report

We thought we better update you with our Halloween news.  We had a number of innocent children trotting by dressed in outfits covered with lights.  We're sure their parents thought these outfits would keep them safe, but unfortunately it made them highly visible to Betsy Bear.  We think you can guess the results of her being able to spot these poor children and more importantly, their sacks of candy, so easily.  We probably should have included a business card for a good therapist with the candy we passed out.  We're sure those children will need one after the crime spree they were caught up in.

Tuesday, November 1, 2016

Apologies for the Weekend

We hope Brother didn't ruin your weekend with all of the shrieking.  He was being impossible as is usual for him.  Really, when we finally hunt him down once more and drag him home, we are going to have to keep him in kitty solitary confinement forever as punishment.  Anyway, we spent the weekend in the country, and on the way up there we dropped by a homeless shelter and met the nicest moose, pup and bear who needed a new place to live.  They even helped us find a giant spool of thread, so how could we turn them down after how nice they were to us.  We are now up to 966 siblings.  And we are surprised the cat is not up to a broken phone with all of his texting.

Tuesday, October 25, 2016

Coupon Warning

We thought we better warn you, we found a lovely coupon for a fantastic deal on some fabric we love today, a fabric collection the store has just replenished its supply of.  Kitty shrieks are expected so please guard your ears now.

Monday, October 24, 2016

He Found Out

Brother found out about those new books the human got, and he has been busily driving us crazy with texts, insisting we are plotting something by encouraging such great amounts of reading, and whatever we are up to, we better stop it this instant.  Really, we are getting highly concerned.  What if he breaks the phone with his mass of harassing texts?  Doesn't he have anything better to do with his time?

Continuing Kitty Annoyance

Brother is continuing his litany of complaints.  Now he is objecting to the amount of reading he is hearing going on in the house.  He is just being super annoying is all that we can say, and we're surprised the phone hasn't suffered damage with his mass of texts about the excessive amount of screen taps and page turning he has been hearing today, and what are we up to that we are encouraging the human to read so.  We just hope he doesn't find out about the ten new books she got.

Saturday, October 22, 2016

Now He Objects to Thinking

We're sorry about today's shrieks, but Brother has now decided to add THINKING to the list of things he objects to us engaging in.  We were hard at work, trying to figure out the simplest way to make a pattern work only to get bombarded with texts from the cat, claiming that somehow he could hear THINKING going on, that surely no good could come from bunnies doing such a thing and for us to just stop that very instant.  Really, how could he hear THINKING?

Friday, October 21, 2016

Friday's Kitty Fit

Sorry for the noise today.  We hopped to the fabric store to take advantage of a great coupon only to learn they were having a sale on the dies for our lovely little fabric cutting machine.  We got a new die, and a cutting mat, and are debating buying a few more things.  Really, we're very sorry and we hope the kitty shrieks didn't disturb you too much.  And we hope the shrieks this afternoon didn't disrupt your trip home.  We went to a church craft sale this afternoon and were promptly bombarded with texts from Brother demanding to know what we were doing in a church on a day that wasn't Sunday, and was the paper right that there was a craft sale in progress, and for us to just get our cotton tails out at once.  Really, why can't someone confiscate his phone?  How did he get his paws on a phone in his hide out anyway?

Sunday Noise and Wedding Disaster

Sorry about not posting this weekend.  First, we were dealing with the disaster of the human's cousin's wedding.  Which was made a disaster due to the antics of one Betsy Bear.  The human's poor, poor cousin.  A reception table with cake and a ton of yummy cupcakes were left unguarded while the cousins were exchanging their vows.  We think you can guess what happened.  We're just glad that the parking lot was covered in gravel that didn't result in a trail of paw prints leading right to our car.  Then we had to spend the rest of the night picking up all of the discarded cupcake wrappers, which took forever.  And Sunday wasn't much better.  The church is taking up donations for needy animals so when we visited the store we looked for something nice to contribute.  And promptly got bombarded with texts from Brother demanding to know what we were doing at the store, and why we weren't in the vegetable aisle, and was that cat food we were in, and what were we up to?  He's now shrieking about how we are planning to fool other kitties into thinking bunnies are nice, wonderful creatures, and who knows what we will convince them of from there, and it is probably part of some plot to convert them to vegetarianism!  Very, very annoying.

Tuesday, October 4, 2016

Continuing Apologies

We would like to offer continuing apologies for the noise today.  We did some work on a quilt for the open house this weekend, and Brother didn't take it well.  We should probably warn you now, we have a long day of sewing scheduled for tomorrow, so please protect your ears accordingly.  Loud kitty shrieks are in the forecast.

Monday, October 3, 2016

Monday Apology

Sorry for the shrieks today.  Our lovely new fabric cutter arrived this afternoon and we went right to work with it, and already have the material for a lovely little throw cut out.  We plan to stitch it together tomorrow.  We think you can imagine how Brother took our newly increased cutting speed.  Really, though, we are rabbits, and rabbits like to be fast.  Why is he so annoyed about our finding a way to make quilting even faster?  He is, though, so many shrieks are in the forecast.  Please guard your ears accordingly.

Sunday, October 2, 2016

Sunday Kitty Shrieks

We hope today's shrieks didn't disrupt anyone's Sunday sermon.  After church the humans in charge of the sale offered us a chance to do more shopping and we got our paws on another sack of fabric, and on a lovely little machine to help with the construction of the human's genealogy books.  As you might imagine, Brother didn't take it well.  We're very sorry about the noise, but maybe it shortened a few sermons, so could that possibly be a good thing?

Saturday, October 1, 2016

Very, Very Sorry

We're very, very sorry for the noise today, but in our defense, we did warn you to expect loud kitty shrieks.  We visited that sale like we mentioned we were hoping to and found some more fabric and several lovely quilting books.  And even better, or even worse in Brother's opinion, we met some poor, homeless teddies and invited them to move in.  We met the nicest gingerbread girl, monkey, pup and three bears all in need of new homes.  Added to the cutest Pokemon Eevee we rescued a few weeks ago, our sibling count is now up to 963!

Friday, September 30, 2016

Apologies for Today, Too

We would like to offer our apologies for today's kitty shrieking.  Really, we don't know what Brother was so upset about.  We spent the day curled up at home, reading.  Perhaps it was our choice of literature he objected too, though.  Did we remember to tell everyone that we found a library that offers a huge selection of online quilting magazines for our borrowing and reading pleasure?  Anyway, we're hoping to visit a giant sale or two tomorrow, and possibly a fabric store of fabric department, so please protect your ears accordingly.

Thursday, September 29, 2016

Thursday Update

Sorry for all of the shrieks today.  We know we should have warned you that they were possibly in the forecast, but we didn't know exactly how bad or loud they would be.  We hopped to the church sale again today and came home with two boxes stuffed with fabric.  Brother was not happy at all.  We hope the noise didn't damage anyone's poor ears.  And we better warn you now, we are planning to hop to another church sale this weekend, so loud kitty shrieks and shouts against various religious institutions for encouragement of bunnies is in the forecast.  Please take precautions accordingly.

Monday, September 26, 2016

Sorry for the Lack of Posts

We're very sorry for our lack of posts lately.  We've been busy getting ready to take that class to learn how to teach stitching, which we do suppose you already know from all of the kitty shrieking about it.  The class was pretty much all of last week, and we are happy to report that it was a total success.  We had so much fun with it!  Our hotel was just a short hop away from a giant fabric store, and then the class itself was held it a building above a wonderful fabric store.  We had four days of lovely instruction, and even got a cute diploma at the end of it and everything.  We are so happy.  And the cat has been so annoying, ranting about how rabbits should be banned from any form of higher education and what were they thinking allowing us into such a class?  We just hope he never learns that there is a bunny quilting book out there that we learned of in this class and are eager to get.  Anyway, we had a fabulous time, and we finally decided to go ahead and purchase that wonderful cutting machine we have been wanting.  It had to be shipped since the store was out of our selected model, but we're hoping it will arrive quickly, maybe tomorrow.  We have already taught one class and have another scheduled for Wednesday, and we have ideas for many more classes and the cutter would be the perfect tool to help us whip up more quilts quickly to promote the classes.  Anyway, we are just very happy bunnies right now, and hopefully we will be posting more regularly to keep you updated from here on out.

Thursday Report

Brother is continuing with his complaints about our finding that television channel with the human's favorite shows and encouraging her in her viewing of them.  He keeps ranting about how nothing good can come from her watching television and leaving us unsupervised.  We really don't know what he thinks we might be making plans to get up to while the human is enjoying her programs.  We're just happy she's found a show that seems to please her so much, unlike a certain naughty kitty.

Wednesday, August 31, 2016

Hope the Warning was Heeded

We do hope that everyone heeded our warning and put on ear protection today.  We visited a quilt shop, a fabric store and a fabric department and with every stop we made, the kitty shrieks just kept increasing.  We're very sorry.  Brother should be ashamed of himself for such poor behavior.  And then to top things off, we hopped to the food co-op because the human needed a few things and he threw the shrieking fit to end all fits, demanding we hop right out of that den of rabbit encouragement at once before we got bad ideas.  We're not sure what bad ideas he thought we might get.  We did get some lovely little free samples of toothpaste, though, which we really can use for our lovely bunny teeth.  All in all, it was a very nice day, despite the kitty noise.

Tuesday, August 30, 2016

Warning for Tomorrow

We thought we better warn you now, we might be hopping by a quilt shop tomorrow in search of a few more supplies for our pending quilting class.  Loud kitty shrieks are anticipated.  Please guard your ears now.  We also might go to the country to check on the cottage, in anticipation of a possible weekend visit so we imagine he'll be shrieking about that as well.  Please brace yourself accordingly.

Monday, August 29, 2016

TV Complaints

We've found a lovely tv channel airing some of the human's favorite mysteries.  If you were curious what in the world was making Brother shriek so this afternoon, that was what it was.  He highly disapproves of the human watching television and says that such a thing will only lead to unsupervised rabbits and trouble.  It's probably a good thing he isn't living here at the moment.  The human seemed so happy to see her favorite shows and if that cat was here he would probably amuse himself trying to unplug the TV set.

Friday, August 26, 2016

Sorry for the Shrieks

We're sorry for the shrieks today.  We hopped down to the book store and got a giant quilt reference book featuring 4050 patterns.  Brother was not pleased with the purchase at all.  We hope his shouting and shrieking about how we better return that book right away and what was the book store thanking in selling it to us didn't ruin anyone's Friday.  And really, we had MONEY!  Why wouldn't the book store sell something to bunnies with the necessary funds in paws?

Saturday, August 20, 2016

Sorry for the Lack of Posts

We're sorry for the lack of posts.  Honestly, we didn't think it had been that long since we had posted, but obviously all of the continuous kitty shrieking had us a bit confused.  He's been totally awful, as I'm sure all of you know.  We went to that giant yard sale, and had a truly wonderful time, finding a giant pile of quilting magazines and patterns.  We just hope no one suffered permenant hearing damage as a result of the ensuing shrieks.  Goodness knows we feared that we would with our lovely big ears.  We spent two days attending an open house at the fabric store as well, encouraging people to sign up for stitching classes.  We kind of went to the open house early too.  Sorry about that.  We do hope you wanted to get up bright and early last weekend.  We got a lovely supply of new fabric at a deep discount while we were at this event and already have it all cut up for some new projects which Brother is as you can imagine ticked about.  Then we went out today and used some fabulous coupons at the fabric store to obtain more fabric, a new cutting mat for our planned class, a pressing mat and a template to make a wedding quilt.  The human has two cousins getting married soon, and we're sure we can put that to good use but Brother wasn't pleased at all.  Oh, and we let three new bears and a new monkey move in, bringing the sibling count to 956.

Friday, August 5, 2016

Giant Yard Sale

Please protect your ears now, because much shrieking is anticipated come tomorrow.  We are planning to hop out to that giant yard sale bright and early in the morning, and we are anticipating a kitty fit as a result.  We're very sorry about that and we hope the shrieking doesn't waken anyone to early.  You might want to protect your ears tonight, just in case you don't want an early wake-up call since we're hoping to leave early in search of lovely deals.

Tuesday, August 2, 2016

Tuesday Complaints

We're very sorry for the continuing kitty shrieks.  We started cutting out some fabric for Christmas gifts today and Brother didn't take it well.  Really, these are for GIFTS!  They are cute little placemats!  We know they are roughly the size of a teddy quilt, but they are PLACEMATS and they are for the human's relations!  That cat has no right to complain!

Monday, August 1, 2016

August Starting with a Shriek

Sorry about the shrieks to start the month.  We hope it didn't get things off to a bad start for anyone.  We learned today that the store that has hired us for stitching teaching is having another event in a couple of weeks to recruit students that we will need to attend.  We have a lovely idea for a project to take that is so easy to make and we are sure will get lots of attention.  Needless to say, Brother isn't taking this news well at all, and he's been ranting since he heard about how we better not set a paw out of the house to take part in this.  So annoying, and as this event doesn't take place for a couple of weeks, we don't expect things to quiet down any time soon.  Very, very sorry about that.

Monday, July 25, 2016


We thought we better warn you to put your ear protection on right away.  We found that the historical newspapers are online and easy to search.  We have already found two obituaries to help grow the family tree and Brother isn't taking it well at all.  He's ranting about seeing the library in court for doing something this terrible and how they should be ashamed of themselves for encouraging that tree's growth and what if a nut tumbles off of a limb?  Please take precautions now.  We have a long list of human relations to look up so it will probably be a long and annoying night.

Friday, July 22, 2016

Today's Kitty Complaints

Sorry about the continuing noise.  Brother must have gotten online or something and learned that the teaching assistant who is taking over our class is very fond of making little teddy sized quilts.  He didn't take that news well at all and he's been ranting about how he was sure this class was going to be one devoted to rabbit encouragement, but now he is sure this is going to be rabbit encouragement of epic proportions, and we better just drop out right away before we get more alarming ideas into our heads.  We just hope he doesn't stumble over any of the videos that our future instructor has done before, showing how to make the cutest teddy sized quilts in a simple, thirty minute session.  Thinking about that, maybe we better go ahead and put on our ear protection.  We are very afraid of the potential for ear damage should he learn of this.

Thursday, July 21, 2016

Sorry for All the Noise

Sorry for all of the noise these last two days.  Yesterday we visited the teddy adoption center and adopted the nicest teddy horse, teddy alien and two bears.  Then on the way home we stopped by the homeless shelter and met the nicest teddy pup who was looking for a new residence.  The sibling count is up to 951.  We're very sorry for the resulting kitty shrieks.  And we're really sorry about the noise today.  The teacher's assistant for that quilting teaching class we are signed up for called, and since the class is going to be somewhat different due to our poor teacher breaking her leg, we will be getting a lovely gift certificate to spend on fabric and other quilting goodies.  We're thrilled with the gift certificate and are so happy the class hasn't been canceled or postponed, but we think you can pretty well guess that Brother feels totally the opposite way.  Anyway, we're so sorry about all of the noise he's been making.  He should be so ashamed!

Saturday, July 9, 2016

Sibling Update

Sorry for the continuing shrieks and shouting.  Brother is still pitching a fit about the library allowing a batch of us to set up shop there to promote teddy activities.  He's being absolutely awful about it to say the least.  Such a totally impossible cat.  Anyway, between his rantings about the library, he has also found time to rant about how we have allowed more homeless creatures to move in.  We have taken in nine more homeless animals lately, including a snow teddy, a cheetah, a lamb, a koala, a teddy pup and several bears.  Honestly, what did Brother want us to do?  If we hadn't taken in that snow teddy in weather like we have been having lately, she might have MELTED!  Did he want a poor, innocent snow teddy to MELT?  We are now up to 946 siblings.

Wednesday, July 6, 2016

Sorry for the Noise

Sorry for all of the noise.  We hope it didn't distract anyone from enjoying all of the lovely fireworks.  We set up that display at the library on Friday and twenty-five of us are currently working at it.  Naturally Brother was not pleased when he realized that such a large number of us had settled in at the library and he's been ranting ever since he figured it out, demanding to know what the library was thinking, allowing us in there, and complaining about all of the unsupervised reading that we are sure to be doing, and how nothing good will come of this.  We don't know what he's going to do when he learns we have already been invited back to do another display for Christmas.  We're sure it will be something that will land him on Santa's naughty list for multiple lives, though.

Wednesday, June 29, 2016


Please brace yourselves for loud shrieks either tomorrow afternoon or Friday.  We are scheduled to set up a teddy display at the library to last all month, and you can imagine how that horrible Brother is taking it.  We're looking forward to it, though.  We're hoping it will help get more students for our stitching classes if we are able to lounge at the library and show off how cute we are and everything.  We just hope the cat doesn't try to show his pointy ears and ruin it.  Although the branch we are going to visit is rather close to a vet's office, so that might scare him off.  Since we will be lacking a net while working at this teddy event, we hope it does.  Not to mention, if we captured him, we would be stuck with him in close contact for a month, something we definitely don't want.

Tuesday, June 28, 2016


Sorry for the lack of posting lately. We've been working on quilt stuff and haven't been able to access the blog as often as we would like. We did another shop hop last week, if anyone was wondering about all of the shrieks on Wednesday.  We visited seven different quilt shops in one day and we think you can guess how that cat took it.  We're surprised the phone wasn't damaged from his repeated, harrassing text messages demanding we get out of those shops at once.  We had a lovely time, though, and even found some wonderful bunny themed fabric.  If you wondered what the loud shriek at lunchtime was, it was due to our purchase of that, we are annoyed to say.  We also found a small cutter that we are optimistic about using for our fabric work.  We can't use it for everything we need because of it's small size, but still, it will be nice to have to work on little things, and it was a good deal, so we are very pleased about that.  And of course, the cat wasn't.  Sorry about that shriek.  We haven't taught any stitching classes yet, but hopefully soon.  We're signed up to teach a bunch, and we're working on a plan for stitching demonstrations to hopefully lure people in.  And once more, Brother is threatening to hold a protest should we do this.  We're not sure if he's serious or not.  He didn't show up to protest the last time we were at the store showing off stuff, but it rained, and he has water issues, so that might be why.  We will be sure to be prepared with netting nearby for purchase and tossing over him if he does show up this time.  Anyway, we're very excited about that, and are looking forward to it a lot.  We have an idea for a unique pattern to do that we hope will go over really well, and maybe a little bit of a simpler pattern that people might like too.  It ought to be a lot of fun.  Also, we have taken in six more siblings, including a boy rabbit, bringing the sibling count up to 937.

Friday, June 10, 2016


We took part in our shop hop and in the open house at the fabric store. We hope the resulting kitty shriek fest didn't disturb anyone too much. Unfortunately, we had a downpour of rain the entire weekend of the open house so people weren't able to venture out to sign up for things. And that cat didn't show up to protest, which was especially annoying. We were so looking forward to recapturing him. The shop hop was much better though, and we hopefully learned a few things to help us get students for our stitching classes, so we're thinking things might pick up there soon. We hope it does, anyway, as we want to teach so badly. There's a quilt show next Friday that we are hoping to go to. We're thinking it might be a good chance for promoting our teddy sewing classes so we're looking forward to that. And we're warning you now to shield your ears accordingly. We're expecting a nightmare of kitty shrieks.

Wednesday, June 1, 2016


There is a quilt shop hop starting this week that we're dying to take part in. We're sure we could learn a ton of things to help us with our teaching plans if we attend this event. So you should probably put your ear protection on now while you still have time. Many kitty shrieks are expected for the next week or so.

Monday, May 30, 2016


The human went out to a movie this afternoon, and when she returned home, she was experiencing an alarming itching. She's not sure if something might have bitten her, or if she was exposed to something and this is the start of hives, but either way, we are very concerned. We have lesson plans to write out, but the human has been forced to take antihistimines and is planning to sleep for who knows how long, so how will we be able to use the computer? This is absolutely the worst timing ever! We're almost tempted to think the cat is responsible.

Saturday, May 28, 2016

Sorry for Not Posting

We're very sorry for the lack of posting lately. The internet has been having issues, making it difficult for us to get online. Kitty sabotage is suspected. Anyway, here's an update on us. We are now signed up to teach four stitching classes showing people how to make various quilted items and teddy merchandise. And we are hoping to design more possible classes soon, which will bring in even more money for us. And will sadly result in even more kitty shrieks, we are afraid. We're participating in an event next weekend to hopefully convince lots of people to sign up for our classes, which is going to be a lot of fun. And we're hopeful it might result in that cat's recapture too. He's threatening to organize a protest. And conveniently, we will be in a fabric store with a lovely supply of netting material. As soon as that kitty shows up, we can purchase some and use it to snag him! Hehehehehehehe! We bet that has never occurred to him. And it will serve him right if we net him and he has to spend hours entangled in a net while we sign people up for stitching instruction. Maybe we can even offer classes on net making, if people see how handy nets can be! Also, we have taken in six new siblings, bringing our total to 931. That's about all the things we have to share for now. Hopefully we will have more updates tomorrow!

Friday, May 13, 2016


We are annoyed. That rotten cat has figured out how to use GPS to zoom in on our location and figure out the general area were are in, in stores! We feel like we are being stalked now. We hopped to the book store this evening, and promptly got bombarded with texts demanding to know what we were doing in the aisle that we were in, and he wasn't entirely sure if it was the quilt aisle or the genealogy aisle, but either way, for us to hop right out of it, and to hop right out of the store that instant. We are seriously annoyed now. There has to be a way to keep him from accessing out GPS and using it to be a kitty stalker! One bit of good news amongst the annoying news, though. Our new batch of thread arrived and it is even nicer than we anticipated. We're thinking of placing another order soon if this works out as well as we think it will. If you hear shrieks, you will know that that is what we did.

Thursday, May 12, 2016

This Week's Noise

We're very sorry for the noise this week. We've been working on lesson plans and watching quilting videos and reading books to get ideas for those classes we will be teaching, and Brother hasn't been taking it well. Also, we placed a large thread order late Sunday night. We hope the resulting shriek didn't wake anyone up. Anyway, we are very excited. We have tons of plans for things to teach, and we are just so eager to get started with our first class. And that rotten cat is threatening to protest outside of our first class, which might make him a bit easier to recapture if he actually goes through with his threat, which will be one good thing, anyway. We're hoping to visit a few quilt shops tomorrow and over the weekend, so we thought we should warn you about that now. The kitty shrieking will probably be at nightmarish levels all weekend as a result.

Sunday, May 8, 2016

Really Very Sorry

We're really very sorry for all of the noise that started on Friday and continued non-stop through the weekend. We got the job as stitching instructors, and Brother isn't taking the news of our employment well at all. Rotten cat. Well, we aren't happy with him either. The human has been sobbing about him all evening, and missing the pest, and generally being miserable. We are good bunnies and don't like seeing the poor human heartbroken like that, and it is all that horrible cat's fault, so the least he could do is to cease with his complaints about the dangers he is imagining if we work and get our paws on money.

Sorry for Yesterday's Extended Rant

We're very sorry for yesterday's extended rant.  We had to hop in to the fabric store for an interview to show off some of our stitching.  Brother didn't take it well.  The following are just some of the texts we got.

Why is the GPS showing that you are at the fabric store yet again? You were just there on Saturday! Get out at once!

Why is the GPS showing that you are still at the fabric store? It has been an hour! It is Tuesday! There can't be a line at the cutting table! How much are you buying? The lot of you just drop any fabric in your paws this instant and get out!

It has been two hours! Why are you still in the fabric store? Are you interviewing for that job? You couldn't still be shopping. The store is not that big. Is someone actually planning to hire the lot of you? Get out of there right this minute! Nothing good can come of rabbits gaining employment!

Finally! You were in there three hours! You bunnies should be ashamed of yourselves! At least you're leaving now, though, and.... Wait, is that the library you're at? Get out! Get out of that den of rabbit encouragement at once! I know you're not going to pick up any decent literature there! Get out!

He was being awful. We don't want to think of what he will have to say when we have to hop back. There was some sort of scheduling mix-up and the lady we were supposed to meet wasn't there, even though we did wait for three hours. So we'll probably have to go back again, possibly this weekend, to see about showing her our stuff. Please brace yourselves now for the kitty fit that will ensue.

Apologies for Yesterday's Noise

Sorry for all of the noise yesterday.  A few churches were holding events that we hopped to, and you know how Brother reacted to that.  We kept getting texts with each church we stopped at, demanding to know what we were doing, and it wasn't Sunday, and to get out of that church at once.  He was just awful.  Anyway, we met the nicest bear at one of the churches, and then we met two more bears when we dropped by the local homeless shelter, bringing our sibling count to 925.  Also, we stopped by the fabric store and had a long chat about our hopeful employment there teaching stitching.  We have an appointment to go back this week to take samples of our work for display.  We suggest you keep your ear protection close at hand for the next few days.  You know how Brother will take us doing that.  Anyway, we're very sorry about all of the noise, but we're afraid it won't be quieter any time in the immediate future.

Late Shrieks

We hope that the sudden, loud shrieks this evening didn't wake anyone.  We signed up for a quilting seminar, which will help us learn to be excellent stitching teachers.  Four days of instruction in a method that is supposed to allow you to make a quilt in a day.  At the end you get a special little certification and everything, to show you are officially trained in this method.  And they show you how to market and promote your classes as well.  It seems like an excellent learning opportunity.  Brother strongly disagrees, though, and is insisting we drop out of that class right this second, and keep our paws out of any sort of institution of learning, since such places can't be trusted not to provide instruction to rabbits.  We're expecting a call from one of our future teachers tomorrow to learn more about the class and what we will need to take as far as supplies go.  Please brace yourselves accordingly for the shrieks.

Wednesday, April 27, 2016

Today's Continued Complaints

Sorry for the noise today, and we are especially sorry for the fact it started so early.  We had to hop to the dentist with the human this morning, and for some reason Brother objected to that.  We got a ton of texts demanding to know why we were in such a business, and we better not be getting our paws on bunny sized toothbrushes and carrot toothpaste.  Poor human.  Her mouth is throbbing, and she can barely manage to eat at the moment.  Anyway, to cheer her afterwards, we went to a few quilt shops.  Which is what caused the shrieks at lunch time.  It was awful.  We got texts demanding to know what we were doing at a quilt shop, and why were we staying there so long, and to get out at once, and then what were we doing at another quilt shop and we better not be getting something cut and was that a third quilt shop he saw us hopping into via GPS and why in the world were these businesses allowing us in their doors.  It was so annoying.  We did find some nice fabric to make more quilts, though, and really, Brother shouldn't object so because two of these new planned quilts feature kitties!  Shouldn't he support us in stitching feline quilts?

Tuesday, April 26, 2016

Tuesday Apology

Sorry for the noise this afternoon.  We hopped to a book store with the human and Brother as is usual for him didn't take it well.  He was texting constantly, demanding to know what we were up to in the book store, and insisting that we hop right out of there that second and to drop any books we might have in our paws.  So annoying.  We're just glad that he hasn't figured out how to tell what section of the store we're shopping in yet.  The phone would have probably been damaged if he figured out we were in the quilt and sewing section.  And that we purchased two books.

Monday, April 25, 2016

Sorry for the Posting Delay

We're very sorry for the posting delay and for the kitty shrieks as well.  We accompanied the human to a wedding out of town.  It was a lovely affair, and very bunny friendly.  They served carrot cake and everything, which we really appreciated.  Brother didn't feel the same, though, and was texting us the moment he saw us crossing the town line on GPS, demanding to know where we were going and insisting we hop right back home right away.  He's such a pain.  Anyway, we did a little shopping before the wedding, and found the best deal on some fabric for clothing and quilt construction, and of course we were getting texts the entire time demanding that we get out of those stores right this minute, and what were we doing in there for so long anyway, and we better not be making purchases.  You probably don't want to imagine what he was texting us when we stopped at a couple of quilt shops and a fabric store.  We were seriously considering turning the phone off due to his texts, demanding know what in the world we thought we were doing frequenting those businesses and to just get out of there right away, and we better not be in the line to make purchases.  Oh, and we stopped off at a homeless shelter too, which he was not happy about, and met the nicest bear, teddy pup and bunny who were in need of homes, bringing the sibling total to 922, which annoyed Brother as well.  Aside from the kitty fit, we had a lovely time, though, and we're thinking about going back soon.  We especially loved the new quilt shops we got to visit and we're wanting to check them out again as soon as possible.

Midweek Report

We have one quilt finished except for the borders and have another ready except for tying it, if you were wondering what all of the kitty shrieks at about midmorning were about.  We also hopped to the fabric store and gathered some more fat quarters, a cute little packet of needles, and a zipper for a sleeping bag we were stitching, which is what caused the screams this evening.  We're very sorry about that.  Anyway, there's some dim hope that things might be quieter this weekend, due to the humans attending a wedding, although there do happen to be several fabric stores along the route they will be taking, along with a few teddy homeless shelters.  If you hear shrieks you'll know we convinced them to make some stops along the way.

Tuesday, April 19, 2016

Today's Noise

We almost have a quilt together, and have plans for stitching another one tomorrow.  We are expecting a high volume of noise as a result so please guard your ears.  We're very sorry about all of this and if we can figure a way to get that cat to behave, we will certainly try it.

Continuing Noise Apologies

Sorry for the continuing kitty shrieks.  We hope everyone took our advice and kept their ear protection on.  We're afraid we found a simple way to enlarge some patterns to convert them to teddy use, so there has been much shrieking over that.  Also, we have visited the fabric store daily for the last couple of days, and have visited a few fabric departments of some other stores too, which seems to be ticking Brother off highly.  We have also been sewing, and have almost all of the blocks finished for a quilt, that we hope will land us the stitching teaching job of our dreams.  We hope to hear tomorrow.  If you hear a loud kitty explosion, you will know we got hired.  Please keep your ear protection on accordingly and keep your fingers crossed for us if you have them.

Saturday, April 16, 2016

Extreme Noise

We do hope that everyone listened to us and kept your ear protection on today due to the nightmarish amount of noise.  First, this morning we hopped with the humans to the tire store.  You would think that Brother wouldn't have a problem with that, but no sooner did we hop in the door than we started getting texts demanding to know why we were there and pointing out that the people who worked their sold us a giant bag of fabric at a discount price a couple of weeks ago, and to get out at once.  That was annoying, but even worse happened when the humans were done, and we went to a couple of church events.  Brother was texting us the entire times demanding to know why we were at a church since it wasn't Sunday and we couldn't possibly be there for a sermon, and to leave at once.  Terribly annoying.  The church events were nice, though.  We found some lovely fabric, and some quilt patterns, and met two monkeys in need of a home who we invited to move in, bringing the sibling count to 918.  Then after we were through with visiting the church events, we dropped in to a quilt store and gathered some lovely fat quarters, including one in a bunny print. That drew down a nightmare amount of texts demanding that we exit that store immediately, and that we drop whatever was in our paws.  After that, we dropped in at the fabric store to check on that job, which we are very optimistic about.  It was so annoying, though, because Brother was texting the entire time demanding to know what we were doing staying in the store for so long, and to get out right away, and that we better not be serious about seeking employment.  Such an awful cat.  Then we had to visit another fabric store in search of a foot for our new sewing machine, and we found some lovely patterns for clothing, so he was shrieking about that too.  Really, we are so sorry for all of the noise.  We don't think things will quiet down any time soon, though, so please shield your ears accordingly.

Friday, April 15, 2016

Sewing Machine

We got a lovely new sewing machine today, but all of you probably guessed that, due to the kitty shrieks.  We hope they didn't cause hearing damage for anyone.  After careful thought, we decided that the purchase was the only sensible thing to do, because our other machine isn't very portable and might result in problems when it comes to teaching classes.  The new machine is so nice, and it has a ton of fancy stitches we are dying to try out.  Brother didn't take its purchase very well, though, and was making threats against the business who sold it to us, and demanding we just pack it up and return it at once.  We suspect he will be making similar demands all weekend, so please guard your ears accordingly.  As for us, we have a ton of sewing scheduled!

Thursday, April 14, 2016


We're very sorry for the noise.  We hopped to the fabric store to see about that job teaching stitching today, and we think we are very close to getting it.  We purchased fabric to make samples to take in to show our skill, along with some yardage for more quilts that was on sale.  Brother did not take it well, as you probably heard already.  We think the number of texts demanding to know what we were doing in the fabric store for so long and we they serious about allowing us employment, and to get out of there at once might have actually done some damage to the phone.  Anyway, please keep your ear protection on all weekend for your own wellbeing.  We are planning to work on samples, and we might be purchasing a little machine to speed stitching, so the shrieks are anticipated to be deafening.

Wednesday, April 13, 2016

Today's Activities

We hopped to the bookstore today and promptly got hit with texts from Brother demanding to know what we were doing in there.  And then he said that he was trying to figure out how to zoom in, and he better not find that we were in the quilting books aisle.  He can't do that, can he, zoom in on the gps and learn what aisle we are shopping in?

Tuesday, April 12, 2016

Sort of Quiet Day

Today was sort of quiet as we stayed home.  The human's sinuses were bothering her, so she took an antihistimine and slept most of the day, so we were trying to be quiet little bunnies.  Which also means we only had to get hit with texts from Brother demanding to know why he was hearing so much turning of pages, and how that better not be a book on sewing we were reading, and if so to put it down at once.  We hope the human's feeling better tomorrow.  We've found a few gardening programs we're wanting to watch and we can't turn on the tv if she needs to sleep.  We're dreading the texts that will result, though.

Monday, April 11, 2016


Sorry about the lack of posting.  Brother continues to harass us via the GPS tracking on our tablet, and we still haven't been able to turn off the feature without cutting off our access to it as well, and we need that feature to locate places.  He's being awful, and Friday was the worst, with him bombing us with a mass of texts when we hopped to a fabric store demanding to know what we were doing in there and why were we taking so long, and were we daring to get some fabric cut.  Very, very annoying, and then when we hopped out, we saw that a poor customer had just been ran down in the parking lot, which was highly alarming.  And we are highly suspicious of the timing, right before we hopped out.  Could this be a feline plot to frighten us away from such businesses?  We wouldn't put it past Brother.

Tuesday, April 5, 2016

Continuing GPS Issues

We have got to figure out how to prevent Brother from tracking our tablet's GPS.  Surely there is something we can do to keep him from finding us.  We hopped to the library today and immediately got hit with texts demanding to know why we were there, and why were we in there for longer than it would take to return something, and were we checking out books, and if so to drop them immediately and to leave at once.  Then we went to a second library and the texts got worse, demanding to know why in the world we would need to visit two libraries in one day and how he was definitely sure we were checking out books and to stop at once.  We're just thankful that the GPS doesn't show what section of the library we were in so Brother can't know for sure what books we were borrowing.  We have got to do something to block him.  He's getting seriously annoying.

Saturday, April 2, 2016

Sorry for the Noise

Sorry about all of the noise today.  Brother has been in rare form.  We hopped out to those church events like we mentioned we were hoping to do, and no sooner did we get in the hall doors than we started getting texts.  Apparently Brother had managed to activate the GPS tracking for our tablet, and was demanding to know why we were at a church as it wasn't Sunday, so we couldn't be there for a sermon, and were we there for some sort of event that might involve homeless teddies, and if so to just hop right out of the building at once.  We went to three church things, and at each one he kept texting us, demanding to know what in the world we were doing at yet another church, and to just get our cotton tails out of the building right away.  Then we hopped into a homeless shelter, and you can imagine how he took our presence in that location.  Finally we hopped to a movie, and turned off the phone, only to be greeted by an inbox full of texts demanding to know why we were in a theater, and how we better not be watching a bunny film, and why in the world do movie companies make such horrifying things anyway?  We have got to figure out how to prevent him from accessing the GPS tracking for our tablet.  Surely there is some way to do that, right, to prevent such annoying harassment?  Other than that, though, we had a nice day.  We met the nicest panda, bear, horse and bunny and invited them to move in, bringing the sibling count up to 916.  We also found a giant pile of quilting magazines for an excellent price.  All in all, it was just a fantastic day.

Friday, April 1, 2016

Scream Update

Sorry about the screams yesterday.  We hopped by the teddy adoption center and took in two new bears and a new Pokemon, bringing the sibling count up to 912.  Brother didn't take it well.  Also, we better warn you now that you should protect your ears now.  Several churches are having events tomorrow that we are hoping to hop to, that might lead to more siblings.  Much kitty ranting is anticipated.  Please guard your ears now while there is still time.

Wednesday, March 30, 2016


Sorry we haven't posted in a few days.  Just wanted to give you a report of current happenings.  First, Easter went well for a change.  Betsy was unable to escape from the grandhuman's room, so our leader was able to actually deliver his baskets to those they were intended for for a change.  We hope that the shock of actually getting their basket this year wasn't too much for anyone.  Leader was also very impressed with our continuing efforts to find work, which is continuing well.  We dropped in yesterday and talked to the lady in charge of the program again, and got a look at the potential pattern we might be teaching.  It's very nice, and we're really looking forward to teaching it if we're hired for it.  We hope if we are that we will have a chance to assist the students in selecting their fabric as well, instead of their just bringing it in already picked for the class.  That would be so much fun to help with that and show people how to make different colors and textures work together.  Also, we hopped by a nursery yesterday and bought a couple of lovely herbs that we needed, if you were wondering about the kitty shrieking.  And then we visited the homeless shelter and took in a needly panda, bringing our sibling total to 909.  We're thinking of going by the fabric store again tomorrow, so please cover your ears accordingly.  And we might go by the teddy adoption center too, so much kitty shrieking is anticipated.  Brace yourselves.

Sunday, March 27, 2016


Is everyone ready to be visited by our leader tomorrow?  We're actually hopeful that Betsy won't be able to snatch his baskets this year.  The Grandhuman took her to her room and is letting that bear lounge on her bed, so we think it might be more difficult for her to sneak out, at least without giving up on her fooling the Grandhuman into her continued belief that Betsy is a good bear.  We so hope that means she won't be able to harass our leader this year.  We have so much we are eager to share with him and he isn't going to be in the best mood if he must be rescued from one of Betsy's traps again.  We are thinking of possible classes we could teach if we had that cutting machine, and quilt kits we could assemble for those classes.  Really, there's so much that we could do with one of those machines.  We have to get it!

Saturday, March 26, 2016

Friday's Apology Round

We just wanted to offer our apologies for the shrieks this morning.  We went to a yard sale to check out a cutting machine.  Brother didn't take it well.  We don't know why he was so upset.  It isn't like we bought it.  It was priced way too high for what was with it.  Seeing it, though, has made us determined to get one.  We even have a few more ideas for how we could use it to earn the money to pay for it.  We could offer classes with it in various locations or we could host cutting parties for people to come, use it to cut their fabric, and maybe have some fun fabric trading as well.  There are so many things we could use it for.  Really, we have to get it!  We would be foolish not to, and now we are kicking ourselves for not going ahead and purchasing one at the quilt show.

Thursday, March 24, 2016

Weekend Warning

We would like to suggest you keep your ear protection on at all times this weekend.  We suspect it is going to be a noisy one.  Our leader, the Easter Bunny, will be hopping by on his rounds this Sunday and he is sure to be impressed with all of the stitching work we have done and our plans to seek employment teaching stitching.  And you know how Brother takes our leader being happy with us.  Please protect your ears.  The screams are sure to be massive.

Wednesday, March 23, 2016

New Idea

We have a lovely new idea relating to that machine that is designed to speed up quilt cutting.  If we had it, we could offer classes in how to use the machine, to encourage others to purchase them as well, as a time saver and a hand saver.  We think such a class would go over very well, and could pay for the cost of the machine and for the dies that we were thinking of purchasing as well.  We might have to ask about that, should we get hired to teach.  If we could earn back the cost of the machine, we would almost be foolish not to buy it, wouldn't we?  We just hope Brother doesn't learn about this new idea of ours.  We can only imagine the screams that would result.

Monday, March 21, 2016

Monday Apologies

Sorry for the shrieks today.  We were working on a few quilts to show as more examples of the lovely work we can do, as part of our plan to get that job teaching stitching.  Anyway, we were hard at work on that, and thus one of the baby bunnies had to answer Brother's mass of texts demanding to know what we were up to.  And this little bunny told Brother to stop because we were hard at work and couldn't be disturbed.  So now we are getting messages demanding to know what that baby rabbit meant by work, and have we actually dared to seek employment, and if we have, we better get that notion out of our little bunny heads right away.  He's being just awful!

Sunday, March 20, 2016

This Weekend

Sorry for all of the noise this weekend.  We hopped to a quilt show.  Brother didn't take it well at all.  We just hope he doesn't figure out how close we were to purchasing a machine to aid in cutting the pieces for quilts faster.  We would never hear the end of it.  We didn't buy it, but we are still looking so we might need to issue a noise warning here soon.  We also dropped by the teddy adoption center and took in two new bunnies in need of a good home.  Our sibling count is now up to 908.  We're sure you know that we got more siblings, though, with that cat's shrieking about how he was hearing more bunnies hopping into the house than he had heard hop out the front door and what in the world did we do.  Very annoying.  And in an especially annoying happening for the cat, we stopped buy the fabric store and applied for work, hopefully providing sewing instruction to others.  It will be a few weeks until we know for sure if we have the position or not, and what classes we will be teaching.  Paws crossed we get it, because it seems so much fun, and the person we talked to seemed to want to assign us to a mini-quilt session, which we are very experienced in.  Brother didn't take that well either and is ranting about the horrors of a business actually hiring rabbits, and don't they know what could happen if they let us get our little paws on money?  We would suggest you keep ear protection handy for the next few weeks.  You are probably going to need it.

Thursday, March 17, 2016

Pancakes and Apologies

We hopped out to a lovely pancake event this evening, and afterwards we dropped by that thread sale again as we realized once we got home that there were a few specific spools of thread that we forgot to pick up.  We would like to offer our apologies for the resulting screams.  So annoying.  We had no more than got home and started to put our new thread away than the texts started, demanding to know why he was hearing the sound of the thread box being opened, and spools being added, and what in the world were we thinking purchasing more thread.  Please keep your ear protection handy.  While we were getting the thread, we saw some lovely fabric that the human really liked.  We would have bought it if we had had our coupon handy,  Maybe this weekend, though.  So be prepared for resulting shrieks.

Wednesday, March 16, 2016

Today's Shrieks

Sorry for the shrieks today.  We hopped to a fabric store we usually don't visit and it turned out they were having a thread sale.  We got six lovely spools full of quilting thread, including a really fat spool with 1200 yards of thread on it.  The kitty reaction to this was as expected.  We're very sorry for that.  He's just been so annoying and loud lately.  And we expect this forecast of kitty shrieking to continue into the weekend because we have high hopes of hopping to a quilt show.  Prepare yourselves accordingly.

Tuesday, March 15, 2016

Ear Protection Fast!

Please get your ear protection on fast before the volume of kitty shrieks does permanent damage to your ears.  We're very sorry about the unexpected noise this afternoon.  We hopped out to the grocery store with the human to stock up on carrots, and we happened to pick up the nicest magazine.  We were just wanting to read it for some fun articles, but when we were going through it we found the most interesting section discussing online classes and how you can earn money by producing classes for people to take online.  Brother did not take our learning of that well at all.  He's currently threatening to see the magazine, the site that provides these courses and the grocery store in court of encouraging bunnies.  We are absolutely sure that is not a crime, but until he calms down, we would suggest strong ear protection.  Really, we are so sorry.

Monday, March 14, 2016

Sorry for the Weekend

Sorry for all of the noise this weekend.  We hopped out and bought another kid for assembling a second full quilt.  And it was such an excellent price, only ninety-nine cents, too!  We were so thrilled when we spotted it.  If you wondered what the screams were about on Saturday, it might have been due to that, or possibly due to our hopping buy the fabric store in search of more thread.  Or the quilt blocks we cut out and pieced when we got home.  Or the quilt for that lawyer we are close to finishing.  That's probably good news for everyone Brother is disturbing.  We have high hopes that when we present it to the lawyer that he will agree to serve a cease and desist order on that cat to get him to stop harassing us.

Saturday, March 12, 2016


Sorry if the screams disturbed anyone this morning.  One of the local Presbunterian churches was having a sale today.  They're a very bunny friendly denomination so of course we hopped by.  The sold us a lovely, giant sack full of fabric for we believe around twenty cents.  Such a lovely deal.  And then we dropped by another place and got the pattern and fabric to construct an entire quilt.  We are a bit upset with that, though, because when we got home we checked and saw that they had slipped an empty package into the middle where we couldn't see that it was empty, so we are lacking the needed fabric for that block.  We might take it back tomorrow to get that straightened out.  Over all, though, it's been an excellent sewing day for us.  And a bad one for that cat.

Thursday, March 10, 2016


Sorry for today's screams.  We devoted our afternoon to doing a search on libraries, in preparation for getting our paws on a few more cards.  We want to pick the best possible library options for card collection purposes, which required visiting more than a few sites.  Brother didn't take it well and we kept getting annoying texts demanding to know why we were looking at yet another library site and to get off of there at once.  We think we have a few nice options now.  We just have to pick the one we want.  And possibly book a few bus tickets.  Expect even louder screams if Brother hears us clicking on the bus site.  You have been warned.

Wednesday, March 9, 2016

Off to Bed

We're off to bed in a few minutes, so please brace yourself for the start of kitty complaints.  We are expecting them to start when the first bunny dozes off, with Brother demanding to know why he's hearing bunnies snoozing, and what horror do we have planned tomorrow that we needed to go to bed early tonight to be ready for.  We suggest stuffing your ears with cotton.  That's what we have done.  Here's hoping it muffles him enough so that we can actually sleep.


Sorry for the shrieks this evening.  There was a pancake event.  Very pancakes for every customer.  Naturally we had to hop to it to get some yummy carrot pancakes.  Brother was not pleased.  And he will be even less pleased to learn that while we were there we learned about a deeply discounted pancake event that's happening in a couple of weeks.  Paws crossed he doesn't find out about that for awhile.

Monday, March 7, 2016

Kitty Shrieks Today

Sorry about all of the kitty shrieks today.  We helped the human with some genealogy stuff along with all of our stitching.  It was kind of funny, actually, First Brother was shrieking about hearing the sewing machine going, and demanding we get our paws away from it at once.  The he was shrieking about hearing us online, and was that a genealogy site we just clicked on, and to get away from the computer at once.  And then we picked up a needle and started doing some actual quilting, and he was shrieking about hearing that.  Really, we just did so many things that annoyed him today.  It was quite fun.

Sunday, March 6, 2016

Warning for Tomorrow

You might want to keep your ear protection handy and apply it early tomorrow.  We're planning a lovely day of stitching and the cat isn't happy at all.  Also, we've purchased a new video game for the human and he's ranting about that too, and how we just did it to keep her distracted and to prevent her from supervising us.  We expect a ton of noise tomorrow so brace yourselves now.

Friday, March 4, 2016

This Afternoon's Noise

Sorry about the noise this afternoon.  We hopped out to catch the new bunny movie that our mouse siblings' big cousin just released.  Such a wonderful film.  It's called Zootopia and we highly recommend it.  Anyway, we turned the phone off while we were in the theater and when we came out, it was full of texts from that annoying cat.  First there were messages complaining that he had been hearing alarming amounts of stitching, and what were we up to.  Then there were messages saying he wasn't hearing stitching anymore, and wanting to know what we were up to again.  And then there were messages saying he wasn't hearing hopping and why wasn't he hearing hopping, and weren't we in the house.  And finally we received a bunch of texts in all caps demanding to know where we were because he knows we aren't at home where we belong, and demands that we get back home at once.  Really, Brother doesn't love here anymore, and we have no clue why he thinks he can dictate our comings and goings.  Wait until he finds out we were at a bunny movie,  He is sure to explode.

Thursday, March 3, 2016

Early Wakeup Call

Sorry for the early wakeup call that you might have suffered this morning.  We finished a few throws off, and you can imagine how Brother took it.  We're planning to finish a few more off tomorrow, so you might want to sleep with your ear protection on tonight.  We're planning to start later than we did today but still, we're expecting the shrieks to be really loud, so you should definitely protect yourself while you have the chance.

Wednesday, March 2, 2016

Sewing Machines

We had a lovely time looking at the new sewing machines today, which you probably already know from the volume of kitty shrieks.  Sorry about that.  Now we want one so badly.  The ones that do embroidery seemed to be very expensive, which is annoying but the others were just so nice.  Drop in bobbins, automatic threaders.  We want one!

Sorry for the Unexpectedly Loud Shriek

Sorry about the unexpectedly loud shriek this evening.  The human was talking about possibly purchasing a new sewing machine, one that could do more as far as making lovely teddy clothing and everything.  Brother was not happy at all with the direction this conversation took and shrieked louder than we thought possible.  We hope the noise didn't alarm anyone too much.  Please keep your ears covered tomorrow is all we can say.  We might hop out to look at sewing machines.

Monday, February 29, 2016

Hope Warnings Were Heeded

We hope our warnings were heeded and everyone protected their ears.  We are about to finish up a quilt and start on a new one and the kitty shrieks have been absolutely terrible.  And tomorrow isn't shaping up to be much better as we have high hopes of spending all day stitching.  Please guard your ears now.

Sunday, February 28, 2016


We thought we should warn you now, please keep your ears securely covered tomorrow.  A kitty shriek fest is expected.  We learned of a way to help the human sell some stuff she has been trying to sell for the longest time and we plan to work on it tomorrow.  And we expect an angry kitty as a result as the human has said something about any funds we raise for her might just be put towards a visit to our mouse siblings' big cousins in Florida.  Also, we are hoping to do some sewing, so really, please wear your ear protection all day is all that we can tell you.  We apologize in advance for the noise.

Foolish News Station

You won't believe the foolish bit of reporting that just aired on our local television station.  Really, shouldn't these people know better?  The local homeless shelter for mountain bears just helped a homeless bear move into a new den today, and the news station aired a feature on it, including giving enough information to allow the den to be located!  Betsy Bear was lounging on the sofa during this report, and of course she took notes for a future robbery.  What was the news thinking?  They are located right up from the street from our home and certainly should know of the dangers that Betsy poses.  So why in the world would they give her the information she needs to rob yet another innocent bear of all of their honey?  They should be ashamed!

Very Sorry

We've been having some internet problems, we're afraid, which is why we weren't able to issue a warning to you about the high likelihood of kitty shrieks this afternoon before they happened.  We hopped to the fabric store and got four yards of batting to assemble quilts with tomorrow, Four giant yards of batting two.  The fabric is four yards one way and eight two and a half yards the other so that's a lot of batting.  We're sorry we weren't able to warn you, really we are.  Anyway, please keep your ear protection handy.  We might hop to the fabric store again tomorrow or work on quilt assembly, and we are expecting a nightmarish amount of shrieks as a result.

Sunday, February 21, 2016

Sibling Update

Sorry about the shrieks today.  We hopped to the teddy adoption center and met three lovely bears, a nice dragon and a cute zebra in need of new homes.  We're now up to 905 siblings.  Really, we are very sorry.  We hope the screams didn't wake anyone, because we did visit the adoption center early to try to avoid crowds.  And then afterwards, we hopped to the fabric department of our favorite store and got a few yards of material for clothing construction.  And had a long chat with someone about stitching.  If you were wondering what the persistent shrieks that went on for what seemed like forever at lunchtime was about, that was it.  We hope it didn't disturb your meals unduly.  Oh, and a warning now, we might hop to the country tomorrow, so please keep your ear protection handy.  We're expecting a horrible amount of shrieks and shouts if we do.

Weekend Warning

Please keep your ear protection handy this weekend and be ready to put it on at the first sound of a kitty stirring into a fit.  We have over 130 dollars to go towards adopting new teddy siblings and have high hopes for hopping to the adoption center tomorrow to pick a few new siblings out.  We also have coupons for the fabric and craft stores, we are happy to announce, but with how Brother is taking it, well, we are expecting a massive amount of shrieking.  Please protect yourselves now is all that we can say.

Thursday, February 18, 2016

Today's Report

Sorry for the screams today.  We hopped to the store and got a spool of thread and two fat quarters of fabric.  Brother didn't take it well.  We're very sorry about that.  Anyway, we just wanted to warn you that we're hoping to hop to the teddy adoption center this weekend, in addition to more stitching work, so we're expecting a ton of kitty shrieks.  Please protect your ears accordingly.

Wednesday, February 17, 2016

Today's Shrieks

We're very sorry for today's shrieks.  We placed an email to a library to see about getting our paws on another card, to obtain some lovely books for the human.  Brother was not pleased about this at all and is shouting about how reading will only lead to a lack of supervision of rabbits, and to cancel that library email immediately.  He's being highly annoying.  Sorry about that.  We just hope he doesn't figure out we placed an order a bit ago to get some books sent to our library from another branch for the human or we shudder to think of the shrieks.

Today's Screams

Thanks to some annoying snow, we were trapped inside today.  One up side to our imprisonment in the house, though, is that we were able to get a lot of work on quilt assembly done.  We're very sorry for the kitty shrieks that were a result of this.  We should probably warn you to protect your ears now, too, because we're about to go back to stitching, and we're expecting a nightmare of noise very soon.

Sunday, February 14, 2016

Valentine Apologies

We would like to offer our most sincere apologies for all of the Valentine trouble.  We do hope the kitty shrieks this afternoon didn't bother anyone too much.  We hopped to the fabric store and got roughly twelve yards of material, a spool of thread and several little packets of floss for quilt construction.  Brother was not happy to say the least.  We would also like to apologize for anyone missing candy.  Betsy Bear attacked Cupid bright and early this morning and took him for any chocolate he was carrying.  We're just glad he was able to flutter away before she could get her paws on his bow and arrows.  Anyway, if you're missing a candy filled heart, the remains are in the back yard by the fence.  Please pick it up as soon as possible.  And we are sorry again for all of the trouble and noise.

Saturday, February 13, 2016

A Little Concerned

We hopped to the teddy adoption center this afternoon and met two of the nicest bears, bringing our sibling total to 900.  We are a little concerned about these bears, though.  They're perfectly lovely, sweet bears, but it didn't occur to us until we got home with them that their fur smells like candy, which is a trait of their breed of bear.  You can probably imagine how Betsy reacted to catching the scent of candy in the house, and now we are very concerned for our two new sisters' safety.  Maybe we need to arrange a bath for them, possibly with some sort of strong scented soap, before Betsy can do something horrible, thinking they have candy hidden somewhere.  Why didn't we think of this when we were at the adoption center?  They have supplies specifically for this type of situation!

Friday, February 12, 2016

Annoying Report

We're very annoyed to report that we didn't get to do anything we hoped today.  We were up, all bright and early, to get started, and then it started snowing so we were trapped inside!  No chance to get more fabric and no chance to provide homes for a few more needy teddies.  We couldn't believe our horrible luck!  We are very suspicious of the timing, and are wondering if Brother might have tried his paws at a snow dance in order to keep us inside.  It would be just like him.

Thursday, February 11, 2016

Brace Yourselves

Sorry we haven't been on in  few days.  The internet hasn't been cooperating.  We suspect some form of kitty sabotage.  Anyway, we just wanted to warn you to brace yourselves tomorrow.  We're expecting a giant kitty screamfest.  We have plans to hop out to a fabric sale, and then hopefully to the teddy adoption center.  We also have plans for some major stitching, so major kitty shrieks are expected starting bright and early in the morning.  Please guard your ears accordingly.

Sunday, February 7, 2016

Hope Brother Didn't Ruin Lunch

We're sorry about the shrieks this afternoon.  We hope it didn't disrupt anyone's lunch.  There's a pattern sale this week, and we got a couple of the cutest little packets of patterns for teddy clothing construction.  And of course that horrible kitty amused himself pitching a fit over the entire thing.  And we should let you know now that the sales flyer from the fabric store that we got along with news of the pattern sale was a good one, some more shrieks are expected later on in the week.  Please guard your ears now.

Saturday, February 6, 2016

Blanket Day Shopping

Sorry for the shrieks this afternoon.  We got materials to assemble a quilt for blanket day and Brother didn't take it well.  Please keep your ear protection close at hand next week, because when we were checking out we got a lovely coupon to use next week and we are hoping to get material for several more blankets.  Loud shrieks are looming in the forecast so prepare accordingly.

Friday, February 5, 2016

Blanket Day Plans

We're thinking about hopping to the fabric store tomorrow in search of more fabric for blanket day construction.  Please continue to wear your ear protection accordingly.  We are predicting a large number of kitty shrieks tomorrow.  In addition to fabric, we are thinking about hopping to the teddy adoption center, and you know how badly Brother always takes that.  We apologize in advance for the noise.

Thursday, February 4, 2016

Protect Your Ears Now

Please protect your ears now.  We just learned that there is a holiday in a few weeks, devoted to the construction of blankets and quilts and Brother isn't taking the news of this holiday well at all.  He's claiming it's some sort of holiday created by rabbits, and possibly polar bears, and when he finds out who allowed such a holiday to be created, he will see them in court.  We shudder to think what he will be acting like on the actual day in question, which we plan to spend doing some major stitching.   We're even thinking of hopping to a quilt shop that is taking part in this to sew with our fellow stitchers. Please invest in strong ear protection now while you still can.  A major cat shriek fest in due in two weeks.

Wednesday, February 3, 2016

Sorry for the Repeated Screams

We're very sorry for the repeated screams today.  We did a bit of stitching on one of the baby quilts we're working on, and Brother was not pleased.  We also hopped by the food co-op, which annoyed him as well.  And we learned the most interesting thing while we were there.  The co-op is trying to pawn kitties off on people this month.  We wonder if one of the kitties in question might be brother and if his shrieks could be due to us getting too close to his hiding place instead of his usual complaints about the co-op encouraging us in gardening.  We might need to check that out.  And tonight we've been looking for movies for the human, and he's complaining about that too, and saying that we just want to get her films so she won't be supervising us, and who knows what we might get away with.  If you were planning to head to bed, we suggest sleeping with ear protection.

Saturday, January 30, 2016


Sorry for the noise last night.  We hope it didn't wake anyone.  We found the nicest deal on some books for the human and Brother didn't take it well.  He claims we are encouraging reading, and when the human is reading, she isn't supervising us and who knows what we could do.  We're starting to think Brother just likes to complain.  We could be sitting innocently doing nothing and we are sure he would still find something to complain about.  Very annoying.

Thursday, January 28, 2016

Computer Trouble

Sorry we haven't posted for the last couple of days.  We've been having computer troubles.  The cat is highly suspected of being responsible. He's impossible, just totally impossible.  We made sure we could get online tonight, though, to warn you we might be visiting the country tomorrow.  Please guard your ears accordingly.

Monday, January 25, 2016


We are having plumbing issues tonight.  We don't know what in the world happened, but the bathtub refused to drain after the human finished her shower, despite everything that was done to fix it.  Do you think this could be some kitty act of sabotage?  But what would Brother have against the bathtub?  True, he didn't like to get in there, but he certainly liked to hang around outside and disturb the humans when they were trying to bathe.  Why would he want to break it?

Got Out

We managed to hop out of the house today, if you were wondering what all of the shrieks were about this afternoon.  We don't know what Brother's problem was.  All we did was hop out to eat with the human, and we did go by a lovely sale where we got some nice wrapping paper, but we see no reason for Brother to be upset about that.  Apparently he is, though, and you have our most sincere apologies for the noise.

Saturday, January 23, 2016

Still Inside

We are still trapped inside and we are very annoyed, especially because more snow is in the forecast.  The polar bears are panicking, and we have serious worries about being trampled as they dart about keeping an eye out for snow and demanding to know if there's still time to flee to a warmer state.  Do you think there might be time to contact our mouse siblings' cousins and see if they would have room for us to drop in on them?  Their park's probably warmer than here, right?

Friday, January 22, 2016

This Evening's Snow Report

It is snowing again, and we are so annoyed.  We were hoping to hop to the library or the fabric store tomorrow, and now we might be trapped in the house!  This is absolutely awful!  We have been inside for almost a week to this horrible weather and now it looks like we might be trapped in here for even longer because of it!


We're very annoyed to report that we are suffering from snow here.  We were unable to hop to the library yesterday due to a lack of protective footwear for our big bunny feet, and today didn't work out well either.  And worse, more snow is due tomorrow and for the weekend!  We are extremely annoyed, and are sure that somehow Brother is to blame for this terrible weather.  It's all part of some kitty plot to trap us in the house.  Well, we just hope he knows that if we are trapped in here long enough, we might just go ahead and get started on sprouting this year's garden seeds!

Tuesday, January 19, 2016

Sorry for the Shrieks

Sorry for the shrieks today.  Really, we weren't doing anything once more.  We're expecting some books at the library and decided to wait to hop down there until they arrive which will probably be tomorrow.  But that didn't stop Brother from yelling and demanding why we are being so quiet and what horrible thing are we up to?  That cat needs serious therapy is all we can say.

Monday, January 18, 2016

Library Plans

We're thinking about maybe hopping to the library tomorrow, or at the least calling them, to make more plans for our lovely little exhibit.  Please keep your ear protection on after the hour of nine in the morning when they open is all we can say.  We have a feeling you will need them.

Sunday, January 17, 2016

We Didn't Do Anything

We're sorry about the screams today.  Honestly, we didn't do anything besides hopping to get something to eat with the humans, but Brother pitched a fit anyway, demanding to know why we were being so quiet, and what were we up to, and whatever it was to stop it at once.  We're planning to start typing up stuff with important teddy information to use as part of our exhibit for the library tomorrow.  If Brother is being this annoying when we weren't doing a thing, we expect a true horror tomorrow.  Please protect your ears accordingly.

Saturday, January 16, 2016

Another Library Visit

We hopped to the library again today, to measure the space that we are going to have for our teddy display, and we are absolutely thrilled that it is way bigger than we thought it was.  We believe that it is big enough that thirty or forty teddies will be able to take part in the event at one time.  Or maybe more if we take turns working at it.  And we should have a lot of space for displaying teddy accessories and other lovely teddy items too.  We are so excited, but Brother is continuing to pitch a fit.  When we were measuring, he kept texting us and demanding to know why he was hearing measuring sounds, and demanding we stop right this second, and we better be measuring fabric and not exhibit space.  We're very sorry for anyone who was disturbed excessively by today's kitty fit.

Friday, January 15, 2016

Library Plans

We hope no one suffered ear damage from the shrieks today.  We hopped by the library to get some books for the human, in the event of snow this weekend, and they had a sign up, looking for potential exhibits for the year.  We promptly asked the human in charge, and now the entire month of July has been booked for teddies to pay library visits to show off to all of the library patrons!  We are so excited, and are already trying to work out who will go and how we will decorate the area we will be given for our teddy display.  We will need signs and decorative fabric to use for cloths for us to set on.  We're on after the lego display so we don't expect legos to leave the display area too messy but still, we want to protect our nice clothing.  We're hoping to hop out there tomorrow to take measurements to see what we will need to start hunting for for decorating purposes.  We know it's over six months away, but the good fabric is on sale now, so we need to get it while there's a good deal to be had.  We are just so excited, imaging all of those people seeing us, and what if we do an especially nice display and get on the NEWS?  It's going to be absolutely a ton of fun, but of course Brother is not taking it well at all and has been shrieking for hours about our plans, demanding that we call back and cancel, and at no good can possibly result from our spending massive amounts of time in a library.  And he's saying all of the attention, especially if we get on the news, will go to our fluffy heads, and that it will only lead to us letting more teddies move in, and that we better cancel right this minute, and we certainly better not buy fabric and decorations for this nightmare of a planned teddy show.  Please keep your ears covered for the immediate future.  We don't think he's going to calm down any time soon.

Thursday, January 14, 2016

Warning for Tomorrow

Please keep your ear protection handy tomorrow, as we have high hopes of hopping out to a fabric sale.  We have learned of another throw quilt that needs to be made, and we need to get more fabric for it.  Please guard your poor ears accordingly.  A giant kitty fit is anticipated.

Wednesday, January 13, 2016

Today's Complaints

We spent another quiet day at home, so naturally Brother had to spend his day texting us, demanding to know why we were being so quiet, and what horrible thing were we up to?  Like we have said before, he is impossible.  And then this afternoon, the grandhuman lagged the mail in, and we had something from the teddy adoption center showing all of the teddies currently in residence and searching for good homes.  We hope the resulting kitty scream didn't disrupt anyone's dinner.  Anyway, we saw several lovely teddies we think would fit into our family nicely, and the adoption center enclosed a coupon to help with the adoption fee so hopefully we will have a few more siblings soon.  Please brace yourselves for the resulting shrieks accordingly.

Tuesday, January 12, 2016

Sorry for Today Too

Sorry for today too.  Really, we only hopped out with the human to go to the grocery store, but still that cat started yelling at us to get out of there right away, and how he was sure we were in the vegetable aisle, and to hop away from that department at once.  We were in the BAKERY section, we will have him know, not the vegetable section, and we never set a single paw into that area.  We already have plenty of lovely vegetable snacks and didn't need to purchase more.  We were just trying to help the human purchase some cupcakes and we do not appreciate Brother being so annoying!

Monday, January 11, 2016

No Quiet Time

Sorry for the noise today.  Honestly, we weren't doing a thing that should have lead to all of the kitty shrieks, but we got them anyway, with Brother demanding to know why we were being quiet, and what were we up to, and whatever it was, to stop it immediately.  We're starting to think he just likes to yell at innocent rabbits.

Sunday, January 10, 2016

Sorry for Today

Sorry about the noise today.  We hope it didn't disrupt Sunday sermon for anyone.  We got an excellent coupon in the paper this morning for thread purchases, along with the news of a fabric sale later on in the week.  Brother wasn't pleased to say the least and pitched his usual kitty fit about the fabric store encouraging us and how we better keep our paws out of that store and off of the coupons.  He's pretty much impossible, and we hope the noise didn't bother anyone excessively.

Saturday, January 9, 2016

Sorry for the Continuous Shrieks

Sorry for the continuous shrieks today.  We hope it didn't bother anyone too much.  We hopped through the fabric department of a store, obtaining several little skeins of thread, new needles, and some liquid stitch to secure an annoying piece of velcro.  then we hopped to a fabric store and obtained several more spools of thread at a wonderful price thanks to a coupon we found.  Then we looked at possible accessories for holding our stitching items.  Then we started sewing on a quilt.  Brother isn't happy, and we sincerely apologize for the horrible noise he is causing as a result.

Friday, January 8, 2016


Sorry about the noise today.  We know we warned you to expect it this weekend, but we happened to hop through a fabric aisle at the store today, and Brother didn't take it well.  We don't know what his problem was.  We didn't buy anything, and we only looked at the thread and needles but we got an untold number of annoying texts demanding we get out of that aisle right away and why wasn't the store refusing admittance to bunnies?  Really, we are excellent customers!  Of course the store is going to allow us in with how much we have purchased from them and what nice, polite bunny shoppers we are.  Brother on the other hand, we can see why no store would want him on the premises, and he's probably given a bad impression of all kitties who might want to go shopping too!

Thursday, January 7, 2016

Wedding Sewing Plans Continued

We have a couple of potential patterns in mind for stitching into a dress for the human to wear to attend that wedding.  All that we need to get started now is the fabric.  We think we might hop out to look for that this weekend.  If you hear loud shrieks, you will know where we are.  We just have to check the coupon situation first to decide which store we want to go to in search of appropriate material.

Wednesday, January 6, 2016


We're sorry for the noise this afternoon.  We hope it didn't alarm anyone to suddenly hear kitty shrieks out of nowhere after the day had been so quiet.  The human got an invitation to a wedding a bit ago, and we have decided to try our paws at stitching her an outfit to wear to attend it.  We already have lovely colors in mind and everything.  We just have to select a pattern and hop to the fabric store to purchase materials.  Brother is not taking it well, and is sending repeated texts demanding the human shop off the rack for an outfit, and for us to just keep out of the fabric store and away from the pattern packets.  We are buying things for the HUMAN!  What is Brother's problem with that?

Teddy Shampoo

We didn't get to the teddy adoption center today, which was kind of annoying because two of our new siblings had went with us so they could register their new address and get all of their paperwork in order.  We hope we'll be able to get down there either tomorrow or maybe over the weekend.  We're afraid that our not going to the adoption center didn't stop the kitty shrieks, though, as we hopped by the grocery store instead and got a lovely little bottle of all natural, organic shampoo for teddies!  They had it right up front by the vegetables so we spotted it right away when we hopped in.  We don't know what Brother's problem is with our getting some shampoo so some of our siblings can get their fur scrubbed clean, but he apparently has issues with cleanliness on top of all of his other issues so he was shouting rather loudly for us to get out of the beauty products aisle right away.  He needs therapy.  We swear he needs therapy.

Monday, January 4, 2016

Prepare Yourselves

We hope that all of you enjoyed today's peace and quiet.  We stayed at home and the human was napping for most of the day so we didn't get any stitching done, which means that Brother didn't have anything to pitch a fit about, but tomorrow, we are hopping to visit the teddy adoption center, so loud shrieks are expected for the evening.  Please prepare yourselves accordingly.  We're hoping the grandhuman will have a talk with the humans at the adoption center about doing something special for when we adopt our 900th sibling, so we anticipate it getting very loud to say the least.

Sunday, January 3, 2016

So Very, Very Sorry

We're so sorry for the exceptionally loud shouts today.  The store we visited had their seed out, along with potting mix for seed starting and other gardening items.  Brother did not take it well, and almost drive us crazy with texts demanding to know why we were talking about vegetables, and why was he hearing a rustling noise that sounded suspiciously like seed packets being flipped through, and to get away from that aisle of the store right this second.  He is absolutely embarrassing!

Thread Report

Okay, we did some checking and we have thread in the color we thought we were going to need to hurry to the store to buy so we're okay there.  But we've been checking some other colors and we might have to make a thread run tomorrow for a completely different color.  If you hear shrieks, you will know where we are.

Friday, January 1, 2016

Happy New Year!

We just wanted to wish everyone a happy new year, although will all of Brother's complaints, it seems like the same year to us.  Sorry about that.  Anyway, we just wanted to warn you that we might have to visit a fabric store tomorrow in search of thread so please keep your ear protection handy.  Loud shrieks are expected.
