Were any of you “X-Files” fans? I was a bit ‘ole “X-Files” nerd, and while I don’t think I believe in alien abduction (the truth is out there), I can so relate to the phenomenon they oft referred to as “missing time” : when you have this hunk of time which seems to just have disappeared and you have no idea where the time went, or what you were doing… because here’s the deal, despite my lofty ambitions and best intentions, I still haven’t made Guppy’s Easter Bunny gift yet.
Well over a month ago, back when I thought I was going to have lots of time to get them done, I saw these adorable Purl Rabbits at The Purl Bee :

These are some of the most stylish bunnies I’ve seen around! Trying to figure out how to spend all your copious free time? Well, make yourself a Purl Rabbit! You’ll need the Pattern Pieces for Rabbit (Just look at the top of the post in the project journal for the next part of the project.)
I really love the Rabbit Clothes – do they come in adult sizes? They are so cute, and really make the Bunny look all dapper-dan. And fancy-pants. Fancy Danny Dapper Pants. Whatever.
Realistically it’s not going to happen because this week is going to be very full for the Shellyfish, but I technically still have time, so let’s not start calling bets yet, ok? And if all fails, I can still make more of these felt cuties à la Aranzi Aranzo like I did last year – they are always a hit. And of course, if I really go into “you’ve got to be kidding me” mode, I know I have a dino book stashed somewhere that could also be slipped into the basket. Must keep our bases covered and all that.
What are you making for the baskets o’ festiveness? Have a crafty week, and don’t forget to see what the other Wipsters are up to, and to check out our W.I.P. Wednesday Flickr Pool, too.

I’ve been out of the blogging loop for over a month now, as is obvious from my woefully neglected site, so I only now just read about your awesome plan for your mother’s birthday. What a thoughtful idea! I know that you’ve already closed comments on that post, but please let me know if you’re in need of a gift from the islands!
Was it the Beatles who said, life is what happens when you are busy making other plans? I have done nothing handmade for Easter – only bought copius amounts of chocolate. i wanted to though, it’s the thought that counts!
I love those rabbits too! Thanks so much for pointing them out.
those bunny ears are the funniest! They have such a jaunty angle. Have a great week!
I feel that I miss chunks of time out every week! I have no idea where it goes until I’m wishing as hard as I could that I could get it back.
Have a wonderful holiday!
