But more of that later.
First some "admin" - Somebody asked me if the handmade Easter card you will send with your bunny should be written in or sent blank for your partner to use - my idea had been for it to be a card from you to your partner - so please write in it! It is part of the "gift".
As I mentioned before, I got the dates totally wrong for the posting of your parcels - I meant to put Monday 17th March but instead put Easter Sunday's date, 23rd March. If possible could you please send your parcels on or before 17th March so they arrive as near to Easter as possible.
Could you also
- Send me an email to say you have sent your parcel
- Send an email to your partner to say you have sent it
- email me when you receive your parcel - ideally with a photo of what you have been given
- Blog about what you have received to publicly thank your partner for your gift (unless you don't have a blog of course!)
- email me and your partner if there are any problems with posting
But I was really worried that I was going to be copying some of the fantastic ideas that I have seen hopping around blogland and kept ringing Mrs Moogsmum to worry about it!
In the end I decided to have a play anyway and see what I came up with.
And as I said to Lesley - I needn't have worried anyone would think I was copying them because it was so bad!I like his ears (and why he is a "he" when he is pink I don't know - he just is!)
and I like his stripes
and his eye stripe made me think he looked a bit like a bandit
I told Lesley it was his "Antonio Banderas as Zorro" look - to which she instantly replied "Don't you mean Anotonio BUNderas? Or even Bunderow?????" Sometimes she's just too clever by half!
But here is the whole ensemble - so now you can see why I'm not very pleased with him.
As Lesley said, I did try to make him "different" from the ones I had seen.
But different because he has owl's wings and claws wasn't quite what I was after!
"But he's an Owlbbit" my sympathetic friend declared.
"Or should that be a Rabbowl?"
Yeah. Thanks Lesley, I feel loads better now!
So it's back to the drawing board - so watch this space for a bunny without wings!
On a more positive note, I need to show you the wonderful fabric I got the other day - we had gone to Dunelm Mill for some interfacing, needles, corkscrew - that kind of stuff, and just as I was paying I spotted this ex-display double sheet half-price for only £7.50!
I love polka dots and red ones are definitely my favourites - and there is loads of fabric in a double sheet! So it has been washed (and desperately needs ironing as you can see) and will soon be put to good use!
And I'll leave you today with another photo of Fred
this time with his magic shadow - isn't it cool how the sun has projected the colours of his chocolate wrapper "collection" onto the wall behind him while his shadow remains solid black?
Update: Ooops! Forgot to mention some rather fab news - I lost another 2.5lbs at WW today bringing the total up to exactly 14lbs/1 whole stone!!!!!! Woohoooooo!
