    HELP! I have found 147 shops, my back aches from looking for the goofy little bunny and I can't find the rest - I believe the number stands at 31. This is my first time doing this and I wanted to get all of them, but I can't find them all. Am I doing something wrong. Am I being outwitted by a bunny? This is the first time I tried this - and so help me, it is addicting. Better than playing a computer game, I guess, because I am meeting up with all kinds of fabrics, patterns, ideas and stuff, but it is getting down to the wire. I have gone through the last 31 every day for the past week and cannot find them. Any secrets on where to look? I am not going to cheat by giving you the names, I just don't know if I am doing this right or not! I figure I am because I have found 147 out of 178. YeGads! Like I don't have enough to do around here - I am chasing a rabbit!!!!!! Edie

    If you really have a hard time. Contact the shop by email and ask for another clue, they are glad to email it back to you.

    I have done that a couple of times and have always gotten a positive response. Sometimes I feel silly, because when you find it, it was the most obvious of the bunnies. :lol:

    Thanks, I have seven notes emailed already. I have gone back five or six times and cannot find it. Electric Bluefish had cayenne pepper as their clue. Couldn't find a darn thing. Another one had something about 40 days - and all I could think of was Noah's cruise. So I don't feel too silly, but ;yes, I do feel somewhat silly, mainly because I just can't find them. Thanks.

    What frustrates me is when they don't give a clue.

    The one with 40 days, that was my first thought. Then when I went back, noticed an important word within the sentence that helped me and it was nowhere close to being related to Noah. Sorry, can't remember what it was, but suggest going back and looking at the hint again. And I think they Cayenne was possible name of a fabric line, if I remember correctly, that one tripped me up as well.

    There is usually a pretty good clue on the shop's home page that will bring you to it.

    And you only need 130 to get entered for the grand prizes. So I understand the completionist in your wants to find them all, but you're just kinda driving yourself nuts for no benefit in the contest...

    This sounds intriquing. Where do you find the information about participating?.... As if I need another reason for being on this computer and not sewing. (grin)

    Try using the site's search box. Sometimes the results can be exactly what you're looking for.

    Electric Bluefish that had the Cayenne Pepper as the hint? Look in the Quilt Block section.

    The 40 days clue refers to EASTER
    The 40 days is Lent prior to Easter.

    I have done those Shop Hops and some stores do not follow the directions. It says the Bunny is supposed to be one or two clicks from the Home page, but that is not always true.
    Alot of times they put the Bunny in the Newsletter, so you will sign up.

    Some stores give you clues, others don't.
    You just have to look around. The Home page will tell you if there is a clue. Like I said alot do the Newsletter, also "About Us" or maybe the "New Items". Some are PITAs and other are simple.

    I just joined this (just for fun, I doubt I will find them all in the few days I have left) but I've already found 6 or 7!

    Good Luck! The number of shops has grown over the years.
    There are other like this - but not big. You get a pattern at the end. I think the site is www.quiltdash.com, they have 3 different ones going at different times of the month.

    The clue to the bunny's location will be somewhere on the home page of the quilt shop. But this is only if they're nice enough to give one. Most do, some easier than others. My advice is if you get lost or confused always go back to the home page and re-read or look for the clue. The newsletter sign-up page is probably the most common place to find the bunny.
    Remember, when all else fails, screw the bunny and shop!

    I found 90 bunnies yesterday! So I might actually be able to find them all before the month is out!

    This is so much fun!

    I love the Shop Hops, but they take me away from my sewing.

    Ok..I am going insane! I have spent the last 15 minutes on the Hancock's of Paducah website looking for the bunny.

    He is the last bunny I need to find out of the 180 and I just cannot locate it!

    I am going crazy! LOL
