Day 203, July 22, 2013

Not the greatest picture,
but this is our bunny.
He is so cute and is about
14 inches long.  He is quick
and can out-run Hank!  You
can almost always find
him eating grass in the backyard.
Sometimes he even ventures up
to the front yard.

Been keeping busy cutting fabric.
I tend to cut a lot at once,
then sew.  Pink today, green and
blue tomorrow...

What a great day!
First, Home Depot, then Super Duper
Weenie (best hot dog on earth), POSH for
