Bunny on the road.

Remember the old days when this used to be a craft blog? When I used to sew and knit and crochet? When I had lots of projects to show you in the making and at the end?

I do. Vaguely. It feels like it has been a very long time though. I guess that's what blog archives are good for. Reminding you of who you are and where you've been.

Anyway, while there haven't been many crafting opportunities on the road so far, I have snuck in a little bit of crochet here and there and made a little ballerina bunny for my Puppy.

She wont be white for long, she's been dragged by her ears up the centre of Australia, literally.

But I think I have finally been forgiven for leaving her Humpty at home.

Hugest love and thank you to Miss Nel in New Zealand for the fab book the bunny pattern came from. I miss you guys loads. xx

Bunny Ravelled here.

And yes I know that her mouth looks like a moustache but the owner doesn't care so neither do I.

Better fly, the other four are playing skipping with a long rope outside the caravan and its time to head to the pub for dinner.

Have a great night.

Check ya. xx

  8. That is so not a moustache ... just a cute crooked smile ... probably all that being dragged about by the ears ;)

    Being brave enough to embark on a journey like yours is just a different kind of making ... you may not be sewing or hooking much but you're making moments and memories ... enjoy x

  25. Ballerina bunny is just gorgeous! I bet your lovely girl adores her. My wee girl just happened to be sitting next to me when I visited your blog and she is now pleading with me to make her one! I bet you loved having your hook out again.

  29. Cute bunny and I'm sure she'll make a great traveling companion (being clean and white is overrated; tired, dusty, but full of wonderful memories is my preferred state) :-D

  30. Followed trashalou here, and adding you to my reader. I love your photos, and the bunny reminds me very much of a TV character from my childhood. On the Captain Kangaroo show, there was a little rabbit with glasses, named Mr. Bunny Rabbit! He frequently got into trouble with his pal, Mr. Moose.

  31. I think what you're doing is amazing. Your girls will remember this all their lives - even if only in family stories for the younger ones.

    The stitching of your journey onto the vintage cushion is nothing short of a genius idea!

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
