Bags, Bunnies And An Award

Dear me, I'm shattered ..... who would think that cleaning the bathroom would tire you out so much.. I don't know about you but our bathroom gets soooo dusty. It seems as though anywhere in this house that you dust just needs doing again the day after - maybe it's because it's an old house?

Anyway, it seems I've got another bits and pieces post for you again today.

A couple of weeks ago I sent Tess a couple of balls of wool as she wanted to try it out before she bought some.. this turned into a mini swap as she insisted on sending something back in return.

Loved the green colour of this paper and ribbon, so that was a good start, inside was this lovely ball of Rowan wool and a dinosaur bag which was quickly snaffled up by Milo, there was also a bag of bouncy balls but these are now scattered in every corner of the house. Thank you very much Tess.

My apologies must go to Sarah at The Blueberry Patch, she very kindly gave me this award, it's nice to think that I'm Kreativ....

Now, apparantly I have to list 7 things that I love and also pass it on to 7 other people, hmmm lets see.. in no particular order..

1) my family ( goes without saying really )
2) chocolate !!
3) at the minute couscous with feta cheese - mmmm
4) the fact that summer is on its way and seeing new life appearing every day.
5) knitting

Think I'm going to have to stop at 5 as my fuddled brain can't think of anymore... now for my 7 people..

Lizzie Jane
Rachel Rabbit
Kellie ( even though I know she'll forget to do it :-) )
Brigantia Designs

Speaking of Kim at Brigantia Designs I was lucky enough to win one of the bags from her giveaway, what makes it even more lucky is that out of all the ones she was giving away this was my favourite. Thank you very much Kim, it's going to be perfect for the summer.

I've also been busy knitting - no surprise there

Jack and his sister Emily are already on their way to Florida.

Normally I don't have any problem letting them go but Jack was a different story.. He sold really quickly and putting him in the post really tugged at my heartstrings.. He's definately my favourite so far . Jeez , look at me , must be going soft in my old age ............

Right , well thats all for now, the needles are calling.

Happy Easter everyone ............. don't eat too much chocolate

I find it so hard to part with anything. I buy items in charity shops (which I like) with the intention to sell, then end up keeping everything! Your knitting projects are fabulous, I love your bunnies! Happy Easter to you all, I am sure there will be many chocolate eggs around! x

Many congratulations on your awards, you lovely swaps, your bag (gorgeous!) and your knitty sales. Those rabbits really are extremely sweet. What a lot of loveliness.

Have a wonderful Easter xxx

Wow done you on the award 'congratulations'

I know what you mean about the 'bathroom' it takes me the best part of a day to clean it and I can never figure out 'why' and as for dust well don't get me started - I think it's something to do with having blooming floorboards!

take care,

Cathy said...

I can see why it was hard to let Jack go - he is just gorgeous. Lucky you having all that other lovely loot too.

My house is so dusty all the time too - I thought it was because I only have floor boards!

LizzieJane said...

How exxciting that your bunnies are off to see the world! Have a wonderful Easter.

Knot Garden said...

I had to smile at what you said about the amount of dust in an old house - I've often thought exactly the same thing myself! I don't know where it all comes from.
The bunnies are so cute. I'm going to have to get myself some of those patterns.
Hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter.

Carol said...

Your bunnies are too cute, I have a thing about bunnies. I love the earing, I love the outfits they are wearing. I just don't know how you manage to part with them!
Have a lovely Easter.

Miss sew n sew said...

Hope you have a lovely Easter! You bunnies are gorgeous no wonder you didn't want to part with them!
Well done on your award,swap and that lovely bag!

Kitty said...

We have a dusty bathroom too ... I think it's because it's damp in there, the 'particles' for want of a better word, seem to gravitate and then the dust is SO visible!

Those bunnies of yours get better and better - well done you!

And thank you so much for the awardage. Really appreciate it.


Simone said...

Love your bunnies too!
