What's In My Back Yard and In My Chair

The word for Creative Cue this week is "track". My drawing shows some of the creatures that have been making tracks in my back yard recently. Probably some of them have been tracking the others. I have been following their tracks around, trying to see what they've been up to.

I made the initial drawing, copied it onto Solvy, and then stitched it free-motion style on my sewing machine. Can't you see this in an elementary school science text, maybe with some arrows showing which one is going to eat which other one?

Closer at hand, the resident wildlife spent the day in the old chair that Ginny is trying to eat, little by little. Weasley is in front.

When I started taking pictures, Ginny decided to check out what was going on.

Then, she gave me "the cold butt". That's the rabbit version of "the cold shoulder", with more disdain.

Guess she doesn't realize how lucky she is to be in here, instead of in the back yard with the coyote.

I'm going to go see what other people did for this Creative Cue. Hope you are making tracks towards something fun for the weekend.

Love your track cue Karen, it looks great! That is definitely a lucky bunny!

Great idea for "track". Thank you for playing along!

Your idea of track is fantastic!
Indeed the fuzzy ones are most lucky to be lounging on the chair instead of outside as a possible gourmet dinner! Yikes!

I showed tracks to my housemates and everyone liked it. If I had not told them it was thread on fabric some of them would have thought it was a sketch. Jess was amazed that you did it on machine.

What are you going to do with all of these thread sketches, I'm curious? This one is my favorite so far! You're bunnies are adorable as always...
