Back in 2006 when I first started blogging, one of the blogs that I read and admired was Julie’s blog Little Cotton Rabbits. Julie makes the most amazing knitted rabbits that are so popular she raffles the opportunity to buy one of these precious works of art. Every time a batch was ready I would enter the raffle and never win.
Well in 2013, Julie released the pattern for these rabbits and I begged and pleaded with my eldest…knitter extraordinaire…that she make me one… I waited patiently and guess what was under the Christmas tree…
Meet Flopsy! Isn’t she cute?! She has the most adorable legs and tiny red shoes with perfectly matched buttons.
Her ears flop to one side, but that makes her even more adorable and gives her an inquisitive look. I think it gives her that, “whatcha doing?” look.
Flopsy takes pride and place in my sewing corner watching each stitch I take on the sewing machine. I’m thrilled to bits and can’t say thank you to my daughter enough.
If that gift wasn’t enough…look what else she put under the tree. I’m looking forward to making my way through this little book of inspiration. I will never be short of ideas again.
After finding those two lovely gifts under the tree, another squishy gift had my name on it..this time from DD2. She had
dragged convinced my DH to go to the fabric shop and buy me a set of fat quarters. The gift is even more special as DD2 doesn’t “do” fabric shops. She struggles with some shops that are overwhelming like bookstores and the fabric store has the same effect. So for her to brave it and make it into the shop and buy me a gift is huge! As you can imagine I was a puddle on Christmas morning!! I’m so blessed to have two lovely daughters that gave me such thoughtful gifts.
I can’t sign off without saying thank you to everyone that sent me encouraging comments on my last post. So many of you confirmed that the ipad and the like make it hard to comment, but that you are still reading. It was so uplifting and I really appreciate all of you that commented and emailed. For those of you that are interested…the first session with the children went really well… I’ll try and post about our projects when I can.
Until next time...♥
