How am I doing?

The bad news is OSU lost Saturday but the good news is I sat and made a bunch more of these polymer clay EA figurines during the game.  Hopefully, each one is better than the last.  They can be made into either pins or magnets.  I prefer the magnets as I can enjoy them every time I look at the refrigerator.

Why, yes.  That is the ever elusive pink tort.  I could give you the genetic breakdown on how to get it but I don't want to divulge ALL my secrets;)  Middle row is REW's and the browns are either black tort or chocolate tort, you can't really see the noses in this picture.

I was aiming for more grey than silver but it's kind of jazzy, don't you think?

Zelda's new hairdo

Alas, all good things must come to an end:(  It is always with great anxiety that I make the first cut on a show coat.  In fact, I will put it off for DAYS as it is hard to say good-bye to something that took months to nurture, but in order to have good spinning fiber you have to know when to say when. 
"How do I look?  Is this my best side?"

What EA picture of mine would be complete without Morty in it?  Sorry kids, broken EA were not approved this year:(

It appears Zelda is looking for the way out.

She will have to settle for window shopping.

Looks like Morty informed her if you sit here long enough the door will magically open.  It does for him, anyhow.

An easy-care English Angora

A girl can dream, can't she?  This is a pin of a very low maintenence English Angora that Betty gave me.  She acquired it from a fellow rabbit loving person who shall remain a mystery as the name of the person can't be recalled.  It measures and inch and a quarter wide by three-fourths and inch high.  I think it is absolutely adorable and I may try my hand at dublicating it.

A well traveled rabbit

Zelda has logged on a few frequent flyer miles in her time.  When she was just a wee junior she was invited on a trip to NYC to appear on The Today Show with Betty Chu and  director Amy Do of the movie Rabbit Fever.  Unfortunately, Japan suffered a devastating earthquake and tsunami that same morning, preempting their appearance.  It looks like the rabbits still enjoyed their trip and the finer things NYC had to offer.

Zelda looks to Lilliana for some reassurance.  She's bigger, surely SHE knows what to do!

Looks like Zelda picked her spot.  Good night, everybody!

Chu's Zelda

 Meet Zelda.  She is the daughter of Big Times Jamey born in my rabbitry who went out to California to live with my friend Betty so he could make more black rabbits.  Black is my favorite natural color of angora as it requires no dying so I was thrilled to be getting a black rabbit in return.

8 weeks old.

Just turning senior.
