Bunnies and Easter

Bunnies in Redwork Embroidery
On this Easter weekend I am wondering how bunnies ever became associated with chocolate and how the Easter bunny's bringing candy of all sorts ever started. We love bunnies! They are cute, cuddly, and usually don't make any noise. They are soft, fun to watch when they are hopping about or eating.

On antique coverlets, I have seen plenty of bunnies including the mother and babies design above, rendered in Redwork, a perfect medium for catching the "expressions" on their faces, don't you think?

Happy Easter, if that is a holiday you celebrate. It is a day more special than Christmas to Christians inasmuch as the idea that Jesus rose from the dead gives hope to all of eternal salvation.

Easter will be a tad colder than usual here in New England. We are waiting for the weather to warm up but it is still in the 40s and windy. Wherever you are on Easter, I wish you a happy day filled with joy!
