Give me a hand when I’ve lost the way
Give me your shoulder to cry on
Whether the day is bright or gray
Give me your heart to rely on
Send me the warmth of a secret smile
To show me you haven’t forgot
For now and forever, that’s always and ever
Honey, little things mean a lot
I’ve been a member of Thread Animals Yahoo Group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/threadanimals/ for over 2 years now. Inasmuch as I love, love, love to knit, I have found that being a part of this thread crochet and needle-felting group can be very fulfilling. I particularly enjoy the challenges or contests they offer to their members where all get inspiration and learn from the pieces that fellow members turn up. The group recently came out with a crocheted rabbit challenge (Hopp) which was based on the pattern
designed by Thread Artist, Joanne Noel of Wee Bears at http://joannesweebears.blogspot.com/ (Free pattern available upon emailing her)
Here’s my take on her Hopp pattern which is inspired by Beatrix Potter’s Benjamin Bunny:
Here’s another rabbit from the same pattern. This time in a cabbage/lettuce cup:
These crocheted animals are no larger than 4 inches- certainly a miniature in stature, but possess a huge space in their crocheters’ hearts.

Thanks. 🙂 And they’re a quick project, too.
