She has five more lovely tangles on the site, be sure to check them all out.

Curious about her nickname (her given name is Frances), I asked Bunny how she gained her nickname. She explained,

It’s actually an old custom. When nurses hand newborns to their moms for the first time the babies are often called little bunnies. That’s it! Not really very exciting but I was my mom’s little ‘bunny’.

I was born when my dad was overseas and I never got to meet him until I was almost three. My formal name, ‘Frances’ was after my aunt but few people have ever called me that (except doctors, dentists etc.).

History actually repeated itself when our first son was born. The nurse handed him to me and said, ‘Here’s your little bunny!’ Oh no, I thought, here we go again. LOL”

Then she signed her email, “(not the Easter) Bunny” 😉

Bunny sent me this tangle last summer but this is the perfect time of year to add Fr’eggs to our collection so my thanks to her for her patience. She writes,

I saw a version of this pattern on a pillow and deconstructed it. One of the variations (the square one) is close to the original, but I found it really difficult to keep it even. The rounded version was so much easier and so much fun. The variations are limitless!

I wasn’t sure what to call it but, when I decided to fill the centres, my first thought was… ‘it looks like a bunch of fried eggs’, so I have named it ‘Fr’eggs’. It is a fun and versatile tangle to draw.

Fr’eggs starts with a grid of small orbs (or squares) and then an orderly series of auras completes the tangle. (The square variation is similar to Texas CZT Donna Hornsby’s DL Labyrinth.)

Bunny illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Fr’eggs below and she includes three fun ways to vary her tangle as well as two lovely Zentangle® tile examples.
