march 2016. Felted Creatures. day 24. Behind the Bunny

Behind the Bunny
Throughout the year, the appearance of the rabbit population in our neighborhood seems to fluctuate. This, my neighbor explained one day, correlates directly to the number of hawks that are nearby. I love it when the rabbits show up...when spotted, they usually freeze, which makes them invisible. 

Years ago I had a rabbit sitting in my front garden. I stepped out of the house to get to my car, knowing the rabbit would be gone in a flash. As I moved toward my car, I was surprised the rabbit continued to just sit, watching me carefully with one eye. I got to my car, drove off, and the rabbit was still sitting in the same spot. So the theory that non-moving rabbits are invisible IS true.

Seeing all the rabbits made me think of the famous rabbit in the Terry Gilliam film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail. One of my favorite scenes in the whole film is when the traveling group comes across the den of a vicious killer creature. They are warned of its dangers, but after seeing it, discount what they've been told. Today's title comes from the line of the characters says.

See the 2 minute scene HERE.

Behind the Bunny is mouse sized and made of needle felted wool, complete with magical wishing flower, made of wool and silk throwsters.


  1. This little bunny LOOKS sweet, innocent, and harmless, but I consider myself well warned! Love the bright little magical wishing flower. Beautiful work, Corinna!

  2. Things aren't always as they appear to be! Ha! The first time I saw that scene I almost lost it!
    Thank you, Dotty. :)

  3. Thanks for taking me back to Jr. High and watching that in the basement with friends.
