Here is Snowdrop - the last in the set of three little spring bunnies I've been making. She was finished very recently, by having a big smile sewn on, and looks the most cheery of the three, I think...
This bunny painting is by the artist Racey Helps. It was a picture I had as a child and I delved into my memories box to find it and photograph part of it to include here....I think it could go some way to explaining my love of lots of rabbits all together, and my love of the seaside too! I used to adore looking at this picture when I was a little girl....I loved all the tiny details...and I still do.
Here is a closer view of Snowdrop's cardi, which fits her shape fairly well - you could call it very tightly fitted in fact, but that's her style! I quite like knitting these little garments and must look out for some fine wool in pretty colours to do some more....
Here they all are together - Flora, Snowdrop and Primrose all in their spring flower prints and cosy knits.
And here are some of the real snowdrops in our garden this week - they look so pretty, I'm always delighted when they come into flower. Each clump of snowdrops in this bed next to the gravel path, is getting a bit bigger year by year, so hopefully they'll cover the ground soon. It was so sunny at the weekend we had some great walks and did some gardening too (well wrapped up though because the wind was still chilly) - but it's spring, the flowers are blooming and the birds are singing! Have a wonderful week everyone, and thanks for popping in to visit me here. xxx
