Baxter likes Fabric

My bun, Baxter likes fabric almost as much as I do…

Sorry for the utter lack of blog posts this week… It’s now Wednesday and all I have to show for my work is a piece of fabric I was pressing, on my ironing board.  My evenings just seem to be getting shorter and shorter.  Do you guys have the same issue?

I have at least 5 different pieces (2 blouses, 2 skirts, and 1 sweater) nearly complete, they just need their respective finishing touches: hemming (which I loathe), hand stitching work, etc.  So I thought I’d pull a Gertie and show you my fuzzy friend, Baxter in my effort to tide you guys over until I have some pictures of the final project.

I love my bunny!  Baxter is so inquisitive, any new fixture to the apartment or any re-arrangement to our furniture and she’ll be right there to check out and assess the changes.

This last shot came out a bit dark since I took it sans flash to avoid the bunny-red-eye.  Baxter always gives me this sideways glance.  She’s so sassy; I love it! 

Can you tell she just ate dinner?  Check out her tinted-green paws and double-chin-fluff.  heh

Okay… I’m done now.  For fun, do you guys have any furry (or non-furry) friends that you’ve blogged about?  If so feel free to share some links of pics and links in the comments today. 

 

P.S.  Yes, she’s as soft and fuzzy as she looks!  :)

    BUN!! Love them… I have 4 cats, 2 dogs and a snake, so the zoo’s a bit full right now. When it’s less crowded (sadly soon, as I have old fur-babies) I want to get a Flemish Giant. There was a beautiful slate gray one at a local nature center for years that I would visit to get my bunny fix. :^)

    Aw, she does look fantastically fluffy.

    I have 2 cats who often make their way into my blog posts, usually because they insist on sitting on anything I want to photograph! :)

    Bunny! Baxter is an adorable little lop!

    I haven’t blogged much about bun, though she’s always super interested when I get out the sewing machine and I have to shoo her away from the foot petal cord.

    Awwww what a cute pie!

    And yes, I have exactly the same problem as you. I have two sewing projects that I haven’t even been able to touch in days. Argh! At least I’ve been getting some knitting done but not nearly as much as I’d like. Where are the evenings going?

    yes-I sympathise- my evenings seem to be getting much shorter. My bunny (Monsieur B) is very interested in fabric, as are his two cat mates (Sancho puss puss and Woofly) but I have to keep an eye on him. He is a super nibbler and a few times I have put on a t-shirt or jumper to find suspicious nibble holes in it.

      Heh What great cat & bunny names you have. Bater is just Baxter, but Quincy is short for Professor Quincy Snugglesworth. :)

      I thought I had moths for a little while but soon realized that Baxter had done the damage. WHat helps with their chewing is willow sticks. Have you tried that? My buns LOVE anything made with willow. They make balls, baskets, etc.

    My evenings have been incredibly short since the beginning of September. Work has really picked up. For me it’s the upswing of the academic year. It’s nice to meet your bunny though. I have two cats. Both have made it into my blog, most notably here. Wiley is the crafty one. If some sort of sewing is going on, he’s right there trying to take part. Maya is more of a lap cat. In fact, she’s sitting on my lap as I write this.

      What fluffballs! They both have absolutely gorgeous eyes. That’s funny that your male cat Wiley is more crafty than your female. Mine buns are just the opposite: Quincy my boy, is all about relaxing and eating and Baxter my girl, is all about exploring & getting into trouble and also eating. They are both really into their food! :)

    What a little darling :) Is she living free in your house or do you cage her? My little Asta is chewing on ewerything so I only alow her to run in the kitchen when I’m ther my self… so, yes I suppose she loves fabric beccause she have made several holes in my curtains :)

    She is shown in some of my posts, this is the latest one I caught her with the camera http://www.ensaligblandning.se/2011/08/varat-kok/

      My buns live in the sunroom in our apartment. So it’s quite spacious for the little guys during the day. Generally in the evenings or every other evening I’ll let them out so they can roam around our apartment. Our bedroom and office are off limits since I don’t want the buns on my bed or near our computer cords.

      Quincy never chews anything… ever! But Baxter will only chew on things when I’m not giving her enough attention. I know this because she’ll look right at me, then chew on a cord, then look right back at me again; she’s so sassy. She’s gotten a lot better with chewing and digging since we had her spayed. She’s still full of personality, but a bit more relaxed.

      Your Asta looks like a rex; which I adore. They’re so incredibly soft!

        Ha ha :) I know that feeling when they look at you and then do something forbidden! Its the same with children when they think they get to little attention :)
        And you are so right of Asta, she is a pure Rex, I’m totally in love with this breed:)

    I have a bunny (Harvey) and he is very curious and always comes to see what is going on when something is moving in his territory (aka our apartment ;) ). And like your Baxter, he always comes when I press my fabric and it drapes around the ironing table.
    No blog post on him on my blog but you can see him on this picture : http://www.flickr.com/photos/misslitchi/5675691995/

      Aww, what a darling little harlequin bun. Harvey is such a great name for a bunny, too. My other bun Quincy isn’t very curious at all, and seems quite aloof. But he loves his food and is always on the lookout for scraps.
