House Remodel and Bunnies

When you arrive at the House in the Woods and drive up the driveway, this is pretty much what will great you at the front door. Last year, the pots were empty, the heat, drought and grasshoppers, took care of our potted plants. However, this year, I decided to plant some onions, broccoli and cabbage in the pots. So far, most of the gardening that I have done in TX, has not been very successful.  I have had gardens in other areas of the country, where we lived, and they have been successful.  So, we'll see how I do with the pots. I did just harvest some broccoli and that will be for dinner tonight!

Inside the house you would see lots of updating, needing to be done, and lots of updating, being done.  The latest finished project, is the laundry room!  I wanted my laundry room to be a fun place to visit.  :) I now have a deep sink and shelves to house my dye pots and supplies.  Everything has a home.  What a feature! The window is a bit bright, so you cannot see the curtain. But, I have hung a white linen napkin with curtain rings, on the rod. It makes a wonderful curtain!

One little project that I finally finished was this bunny project.  It took me a year to make these little guys. I started last spring and finished this spring. They just ended up on the bottom of the cotton yarn container and I moved onto other projects. When I found them several weeks ago, I decided to get them done!

The tails were supposed to be pompons, but I decided to crochet tails.

Here are their fronts.  :)  These bunnies are from the pattern by Danger Crafts, called Bunny Nuggets. The pattern can be found here on Ravelry.

These little bunnies were fun to do and now decorate my knitting studio for the spring season.


  1. I'm just glad to know that you and yours are okay after the tornados!

    Cute little bunnies and good luck with your veggies ;)

  2. I love your pot "garden". I am planing on something very similar this year. Last year between the burning sun and the digging cats nothing worked out.
    so I am starting in movable containers this year.
    I love the forethought you give to your living space, even to the laundry room, and that poster on the wall is super cute.
    And the bunnies are very pretty, I love the little tails.
