Thank you so much for all of the lovely thoughts and comments on my last post. They were quite overwhelming.
You are all wonderful.
Things have been ticking by slowly over here - lot's of other 'stuff' going on that seems to get in the way of the normal running of things. At times like these my oasis is in a bit of making. Well aware that I have a craft fair coming up next weekend I thought it was about time I dressed the bunnies.
I happily sat at my old desk and cut, pinned and stitched. Soon enough two little dresses appeared and - to my amazement - actually fitted.
But there was a nagging problem. How on earth do you press a seam on a garment that small?
I stared at it and pondered. I pondered some more. My eyes drifted towards Mr 'Bunny Gone Wrong'.
An early practice bunny that nobody would want but I haven't had the heart to throw away. Then my mind cogs started whirring in that very disconcerting manner that means I have a)become a genius or b)finally cracked.
Mr BGW stared back.
A light bulb moment.
A perfect 'ham'!
It's just what Mr BGW 's been waiting for!
The dresses still aren't quite finished - now it's time for the hand stitching and pretty bits but they're well on the way. Yes bunnies - you SHALL go to the ball!
(And the moral of this story is never throw an old misshapen bunny in the bin if you are going to need to press tiny dresses!)
P.S. Just a reminder that if you still want to join our happy little band at Shugborough on the 30th get in touch and I'll send you the details!
