My Creative Space


Hi folks, here we are in the second week of the school holidays and the wintery days are making everything sparkly.

And icy. It's lucky there are no fish in our fish pond...otherwise I would have had to make them little jumpers and mittens.

I have of course, been making some bunnies but more on them in a minute. More importantly I've been thinking creatively about my kids and making sure I spend some special time with all of them during the holidays.

Bill and I met up with my dad to watch the Tigers in a thrilling four point win over Sydney at the weekend. I took my crochet and in between all the excitement managed to do a few rows of my new stripey blanket. No, not yellow and black! (I just noticed the poor Sydney supporter in the background looking a bit miserable..poor thing!)

Back at home I finished two more bunnies. This little pink girl was made for a beautiful new baby called Bess.

I love the name Bess, it's so old fashioned and pretty.


And this little yellow girl you have seen before, but now she is finished and looking for a new home. In the next few weeks I'm hoping to open an online Dandelion shop so she may be one of the first bunnies on the shelf. I'm also thinking of adding a vintage section where you will be able to share in some of the treasures I discover on my thrifting adventures. Watch this space!

How is your week going? Hope you have some sunshine in your wintery day today, see you soon sweeties, I'm off to Kirsty's, xo

I think Richmond are improving greatly in the last few matches and I think it is about time they had a few wins. Bill looks so much like you doesnt he - he must have been very happy seeing his team win! Your bunnies look so pretty and the yellow one is gorgeous. I cant wait to see what you will have in your online store, how exciting for you.
