Winter Bunnies

 Now that the winter bunnies have been gifted i can show you a few pictures of them here......they posed for a few photos in the little wooden sleigh, and i placed it in front of this gorgeous snowy painting by janet bell (you can find it on her gallery website here...the title is*dyffryn, clwyd*...)
 ...........it hangs on our landing at the moment above the grey dresser, perfectly wintry..........
 .............here are the first two little grey rabbits that i gifted at christmas......(took this pic when i noticed they matched my collection of persephone books)......... this time i left it to my dearies to choose their names........above are hettie and betsy........and below are bunny and blossom....
 ............the little woolly garter stitch cardies were quick to knit and i chose fabrics from pam kitty garden and tilda for the little cotton skirts and ear linings..............
 ..................another picture of blossom.....
 .................one more of hettie and betsy.............
 ...............and a final picture of bunny...........
 ............things have been very busy here with lots of family times, our sweet grandbaby rhys had his first birthday party and we had such a lovely time with both sides of the family....cake pictures to come, not yet sorted out :)...............over the last few days it has turned more wintry here after the unseasonable mildness of december.......a bit more pottering in the greenhouse has been going on, enjoying the flowering plants and getting ready to sow some xmas present seeds soon......
 .................my little molly dog has been keeping me company in there too..............
 .............lots to do this week....paperwork i put off before xmas must now be done......new projects to create.......and new crochet to enjoy too.......
.................thank you everyone for your kind new year wishes..............i hope 2016 has started well for you all..........lots of crafty new things in the pipeline here.....back soon xxxxxxxxxxxoooooooxxxxxx

Helen
The bunnies are so sweet in their little cardies, and I love the colors in the granny squares. The beautiful geraniums remind me that spring will be here one day and I will have some blooming on my porch and patio once again soon.
Thank you for sharing.

The bunnies in their sleigh would make a lovely Christmas card.
The cardi with the red buttons is the cutest ever!
I can't believe baby Rhys has had his first birthday - nor that my granddaughter has started school! She was here last week and we came across the word 'expert' in a book I was reading to her and asked if she knew what it meant, to which she replied 'You're an expert at sewing and making things with wool Grandma' - what more could I ask?!

Christine Barnsley said...

Happy New Year Helen! Your bunnies are so sweet and I bet they are just loved to pieces! I just can't believe that a year has passed since your little grandson Rhys was born.... where did that year go?! Hope 2016 is a lovely year for you! Christine x

Happy New year, Helen. It's always such a joy to see a post from you.
I adore your little bunnies, their names and characters are so cleverly thought out. They have such sweet faces and little cardies and skirts
It's nice to see a bit of winter colour. Our Hellebores have already poked their faces out to see what they New Year is bringing.
How lovely to have Molly to keep you company.
