This week has been a bit hectic for me. I've had two magazine deadlines looming as well as a whole load of website orders to paint. I have now finished (and clothed!) the rabbit for Sewing World. I was planning to photograph this rabbit in the arms of a small child but I didn't get that far, unfortunately, before the rabbit needed to be packed up...still, shouldn't be long before s/he makes the return journey (the rabbit, not the child).
I'm hoping to sell this pattern eventually as a download - in the meantime, you can get the printed full-size pattern in the December issue of Sewing World magazine. A dress and dungarees are included in the pattern.
Am I being over-sensitive in thinking this rabbit looked seriously alarmed at being encased in bubble wrap ready for enforced enclosure in a box for travel? How odd that fabric and stuffing that I've put together myself suddenly takes on a personality (even if it's only in my head!).
And I've also finished a diary cover for Craftseller. I had a little of the linen from Guthrie and Ghani left over from making the rabbit and decided it would be the perfect fabric for the diary cover.
The papers I've incorporated (covered with clear PVC fabric for protection) are being given away free in an upcoming issue of Craftseller and I must say they are rather gorgeous. Paris in the springtime ... what a very lovely thought!
And while I was playing with the papers, a certain little someone enjoyed playing with the offcuts. I think she approved of them too - she certainly did a lot of sorting!
It's over to you, now. I'm looking forward to enjoying some blog reading...
