... thought she would brave the elements today and head out to the Picnic hosted by Melody.
She is even bringing some eggs to share - it is after all the eve of Easter and we like to share a good chocolate to celebrate right?
She is made from a design by the talented Kathleen O'Connor featuring hand dyed mohair - now I know that Kathleen's bunny was a little different to mine turned out. She looks a little sheepish and her fur's a bit ratty, but she is lots of fun in her mint and pink coat.
She has glass and squishy beads as well as stuffing and is quite pose able, she spends most of her days hanging off the shelf she shares with furry friends.

The Googy bag got it's handle attached and now it is all done ready and waiting for the Rabbit that is due to visit next weekend - I really am hoping he will fill it up for me!
Okay, so I didn't do the pretty stitchery on the handle but I am very happy with this fun fabric handle.
See it is the perfect size - here it is with some of the calorie free eggs I have been making.
These little crochet eggs are too cute, they are similar in size to a small hen's egg so they are very quick to make.
Now Nomee and I have a paying job that will keep us busy for a few days and involves this roll of very nice towelling - the colour is burgundy, a bit darker than it appears in this photo.

I didn't get distracted by new projects last night and made good progress on the bags.
The Googy Bag from Bronwyn over at Red Brolly just needs it's handle - there was a thought that it may get attached today but that has not happened so here it is so far.
The two of Us bag from Rosalie Quinlan designs is complete.
This was a kit from the Immerse retreat, September 2010, so I guess there are a whole bunch of these that look like the pattern picture using the red check that was supplied. I didn't need to find something in the stash to complete it and there was just the right amount of fabric so no little leftovers either.

With all the ladies who play along in the Friday Night Sew In - hop on over and see Heidi to join.
Some progress has been made with the crosses - and after much nagging from a member of my weekly craft group I have stitched the Wolf's eyes - it is a bit disconcerting having him watch my every move now - lucky I'm almost there.
This week I got totally distracted by this free project from Bronwyn over at Red Brolly for the Easter Googy Bag.
And I finished stitching this design for The two of Us bag from Rosalie Quinlan designs.

There has been a little crafting going on here - still going slow.
Saturday was the local knitting at the Library group so I cast on another little person hat to work on there. Gotta love little people projects not only are they portable, the grow real quick and before you know it you're done.
Multi coloured yarn, baby beanie in textured pattern.
Next an almost finished old project - started July 2010, all the knitting is now done on my purple vest, just need some matching buttons to finish it off. Could require a shopping trip!
Last week I picked up this project started late 2010 and put aside when the Christmas preparations got in full swing.
Just some green spots to go - I may even finish it in the near future?
It is a kit from the Immerse retreat I attended in September 2010, the designer is Rosalie Quinlan.
Hope your weekend was filled with lots of stitchy goodness.
