My Creative Space



My space has been a little challenging this week. Every day it has poured with rain, it's freezing outside and one by one my kids have become sick. Poor Rosie has been very unwell, but luckily doesn't have pneumonia as suspected.


Billy has come down with the same chest infection too. So there hasn't been too much time for bunny making.



I have managed to cut out and make a couple though. See above, the bunny ears are made from the fabric underneath the bunny arm.



I don't have a pattern for the ears, I never have! I just free cut them and they always work out. This funny part of the bunny making process is so familiar now, & I like it too as I love the bunnies to be different, each one unique. It does mean that some bunnies have longer ears, maybe they can hear more that way? Someone once said that their long ears look like pigtails, or pretty, long bunny hair styles. Funny.


Sailor boy, Tom, is heading into the shop this afternoon. He is a dear fellow and will make a sweet companion for someone.


I also finished Mia, here she is relaxing on our church sale piano! Mia will also be hopping into the shop today.

So that's me this week sweeties, a bit housebound, a little stir crazy but hanging in there! I'm seeing this winter as a challenge, I know life is a lot worse in other parts of the world so I'm trying not to complain. What are you up to? I'm off to visit Kirsty and see what's happening in your space, see you soon xo

Oh Beck, I hope your kids are all fit & well again very soon. It sure is hard having sick littlies, everything else just needs to take a back seat I guess. I LOVE Mia she's really sweet..take care x

I hope your children are much better soon, it must be so hard on everyone with the freezing cold weather too. Just think school holidays are not far off so hopefully the weather will be light and sunny and springy! Your 2 little bunnies look adorable, and I think red, blue and white and sailor themes are the trend for this summer too!

How cute are the sailor overalls? I used to get around in overalls a lot as a teenager, but they are hard to go to the toilet in.Hang in there in the house of sickness!
