Bunny Bliss

 We have some new little bunnies to greet you here today....very tiny little bunnies indeed.....small enough to sit on these delightful bunnie picture blocks in fact..............i made the tiny bunnies a while ago, just after i made the big bunny (Ruby) i decided to make some very small ones next .......
 ......last week Fee and i decided to do a swap....two of her picture blocks for one of my stitched hearts......the fact that the baby bunnies fit so well sitting on the blocks was sheer serendipity :-)......
 ....when Fee's parcel came and i saw the little wooden bunny tag my heart (seriously) skipped a beat ....the tag is two sided too, both sides so sweet......and then inside the package the little Chipper Nelly wooden blocks made with vintage bunny paper.....sooo adorable...
 .....and one side even had a boy and girl bunny illustration, even though Fee didn't know i had just made tiny girl and boy bunnies......
                                  .........this is the postcard-y heart i made as my half of the swap.............
                                                  ....the baby bunnies don't have names yet......
 ......here they are pictured with Flora, one of my spring bunnies from last year, she is doing a bit of babysitting...
              .........one more picture on the newly painted white dresser, tucked into in the greengate cup again......
.........the bunnie blocks are so sweet aren't they, and i can tell the baby bunnies like them as much as i do....the buttons on the bunnie's clothes were also part of our swap, and the tiny ones i received were just perfect to sew onto the teeny clothes.....
Thank you for popping in to visit us here today, it's wonderful to see you.........my giveaway is still open until March 21 if you'd like to enter it and haven't already you are welcome to put your name in the draw..........

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, with spring sunshine and happy times, and to all the mummies out there Happy Mother's Day on Sunday  (we are celebrating it with lots of cake)...........back soon xxxxxxxxxxxx

I read about your swap on Fee's blog - what a lovely idea and both the blocks and your heart are just lovely! Those baby bunnies are teeny Helen, I can only imagine how fiddly they must have been to make! They look wonderful on the blocks and I love the vintage paper Fee's used. Love them! Hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend and your cake :) Jenny x

Hi Helen, those bunnies are so cute! My daughter works in WHSmith and I was browsing at the craft books the other day and saw the name Helen Phillips! I thought, I know that name! I didn't realise you wrote books too, it looked really lovely so I think I will be treating myself soon xxx

That Fee, her talent knows no bounds!!! They really are adorable blocks, and very cute little bunnies, just the right size for me as I'm always drawn to the small things. And the heart is gorgeous!

I'm working on a little something for Fee at the moment ... but knitting takes sooooo darn long!
