Please meet mother hare Everlasting.

A textile ornament of a real-size mother hare to display fondly in your home.

Everlasting was one of the smallest babies in the meadow and not only small for her age of a few days old, but small for a hare in general. Her mama wasn’t worried because once she started to eat her greens she would shoot up in no time at all. But the other babies weren’t giving her much leeway in the playgroup though Everlasting wasn’t put out by this, and she persisted until they let her join in the games and fun. She wasn’t the best at leapfrog and the others soon tired of not getting a good enough spring over her back, but in hide and seek it was nearly impossible to find her because she managed to squirrel herself away into the smallest of nooks and crannies! That always made her smile. And it was good also that she wasn’t a shy baby, she was inquisitive and brave and would venture where the others daren’t go. Particularly down by the mire. Infact all the babies had been warned about the mire and the boggy ground and not to go playing there because all it takes is a few straggly reeds, some thick mud and before you know it, your long thin legs will be caught for sure! Well, well, the leverets did keep away - but not Everlasting. Her legs were small and stocky, like well fed rabbit’s and she was able to splay her feet as she paddled about in the thick mud and any loose snaky reeds about to tie themselves to her appendages were snipped immediately by her incisors. Ofcourse she made sure to wash the mud off her feet before she headed home lest her mama find out and disapprove. But infact her mama did find out and indeed she did disapprove! Everlasting was given a day’s stay-in at home and not allowed out to play. Mama said that if her baby was going to be wayward then she had better learn to be smart and make sure that she attends to the small details. Everlasting peered up at mama, waiting for the nugget of advice but all mama did was point to her daughter’s hard crisped-up brown tail! Gulp! Everlasting realized that she had forgotten to wash the mud off her tail! Though she was grateful to mama because she was allowed to play down there, but had to be smart about her actions and that made her think even more of her surroundings and to be aware and take care. Her boring, boring day-at-home-lesson was not in vain!
Now that Everlasting is a mama herself she makes sure that all her babies get the same lesson she received from her mama. Infact she takes them down to the mire and points out the mud and reeds and the real boggy bits and the slippery patches and the sharp edged grasses and she tells them to be aware and use their brains before their paws. All her leverets have been good babies and they love to play down there getting covered from paw to tail in thick brown mud. And none of them mind the wash down at the end either, not even under their chins or the backs of their ears! Plus they all attend diligently to their fluffy white tails. Well, er, white after their bath that is!

Everlasting is looking forward to dozing comfortably on your armchair, but would like the French doors left open a bit please as she will be out every morning with her babies as they go exploring thru the mire and reeds and marsh. There is always so much to see and do, it’s an amazing world in there. You are most welcome to come along if you like. But no complaining if you lose a shoe in the mud or get cut from the sharp razor grass, - it’s not as if you can snip the stalks with your incisors now is it? And no lagging behind because there is a lot to investigate and no-one likes anyone hanging back to admire that single yellow flower or the baby Northern diver or the fluffy coot chicks. You have to keep up with the pace set and hares travel at a considerable speed, even thru mires! Though there will be rest at the play spot, we all just have to get there, together. There will be plenty time later to admire the bird babies and all that. And last of all, when it comes to wash time just make sure to do behind your ears too otherwise you might get tut tuts from your mama when you leave mud all over the bathroom towels. And we needn’t worry about your tail eh? or need we?!

Everlasting has been made with great care and she has safety eyes. She has been machine and hand sewn by me and will have many ‘unique’ (imperfect, handmade) bits.
However, she is not recommended for very young children and is not a toy.

She is made from a printed cotton with great northern divers on it, and has a polyfill stuffing, along with a full stomach of dandelion leaves (only joking!).

She stands approx 27cm high and 38cm wide (approx 11” x 15”).

Everlasting is looking forward to her journey to her forever home.
She also wants you to know that baby hares are called leverets and mothers are does.
