Pasting rabbits

I've postponed the indigo awhile again, as cooler weather has returned. Meanwhile, I got busy this week pasting my new rabbits-greens-moon stencil on 100% off-white linen from a local fabric outlet, S. R. Harris.  It's funny how every mammal I depict reminds me of my well-fed cat, Lester (in body if not in ears). I have a tendency to make my paste too thick/dry, and have been making an effort to overcome this. This batch felt just right.
