Two knitted bunnies walk into a bar...  
Well, it was a actually a cafe, and they didn't walk in on their own. :)

I took them with me last Thursday to show them to the lady from whom I buy the yarn, and then to another shop to buy some bright orange sewing thread to match the orange on the second bunny face because I had to attach the eyes to the orange section. The two ladies at that shop loved the bunnies, but said they wouldn't manage to make their own bunnies if I copied  the schematic for them. I didn't find exactly the same shade of orange sewing thread, of course, but I did find something close enough, and much closer than anything I had at home (nata_for, this is some more evidence of my terrible perfectionism).

Then I went to a cafe with my friend Galya, who had patiently walked to those shops with me, and I attached the second bunny's eyes right there in the cafe. :) And then I asked her to take some photos of the bunnies on the table with her cellphone camera.

It was an afternoon very well spent. I had a good long chat with Galya, and then I walked back home (it was finally a warm enough sunny day after all the rain and snow we had had).

I finally received those photos last night, so here are the best of them:

the bunnies are actually smaller than this, so this photo looks a little weird to me. :)

So, how did the ladies feel about the same sex couple entering their establishment? :)

LOL I don't think they are likely to know anything about same-sex couples. :)

They are great, especially the one with the trunk! I also likely thread to match as much as possible, therefore I have some strange shades in my sewing box - thread bough to match a specific project.

Thank you! :)

There are somehow never enough shades of sewing thread in our house too. ;)
