QUICK!

Come and have a look out of the attic window.




Isn't that beeeeaaaauuuutiful?
I hope you enjoyed that.

I just wanted to share it with you :0)


Hmmm.... Maybe this little bunny should be an 'Arctic' hare!

Talking of the 'Arctic', it's felt a little chilly of late around here. So when I spotted a rag 'hookie' rug at our local auction I snaffled it up sharpish. (well wonderful man did. I'm a bit shy.)


It's living in the kitchen at the moment but it might have to move to in front of the wood burner in the front room.



I have no idea how old it is, but it doesn't matter, I like it and I bought it to be used.


It has a few tufts missing here and there,



and there are a couple of small stains on it, but I reckon it'll have a few more when it's live with us for a while!

But best of all... it says Home Sweet Home on it.

Wow I loved the bunny but then came the rug - its wonderful - have you heard of Heather Ritchie - she lives in Reeth and she is renowned for her hookie rugs. That is a big one isn't it - well done OH and well done you for creating that bunny out of vintage fabric - wait till Cath Kidston sees it - she will be copying them

Love the 'hookie'. Love the colours and the design. What a great find. It has a very contempory look and would look great hanging on the wall.

I think your bunny looks sunny (sorry but that's what my brain said) especially compared to the snow. I can see why you love that rug. Cherrie
