Bunny hopping back into the land of the Internet at long last.

Good afternoon folks.
Well, I thought it would only be the kids that would miss the Internet but I'm afraid Mum did too.
I certainly missed blogging.

Whilst internetless we took the time to go and visit the family.  My Mum had been in hospital after a nasty fall and was a bit worse for wear but you'll be glad to hear she is now on the mend.
My brother also travelled up to see us, we haven't seen each other for over a year and a half so it was also great to catch up with him and the family.  His youngest now no longer a baby and definitely the boss of his two older children even though only a toddler.
I'd forgotten how hectic having little ones around is especially during the night!
Good fun.
My brothers children took to my kids like they'd only seen them a short while ago and Holly was also a very big hit.
We didn't do a great deal just enjoying each others company!
Trips to the local parks, a wee bit of shopping and looking after Grandma the order of the day.
A lovely BBQ's with friends we also haven't seen for a couple of years, meeting new additions to their family too.

Today I have the crocheted Bunny I started making a wee while ago, can you remember that far back?
As my friend had had a little boy I decided it was the perfect opportunity to get the wee rabbit finished and ready for a new home with baby Joao.

As it was for a baby I just stitched the facial features, the bow can be removed and the rest is perfectly safe for little fingers.  I even made a point of stitching on the various parts twice so that it would stand the test of time.  Hopefully!

I've already been asked by friends to make more, gosh I wish I could crochet fast.  A production line I am definitely not!  I tend to be more of a one off kind of girl, I certainly don't mass produce anything.

I hope this finds everyone fit and well too as I haven't visited anyone of late, I'm away now to catch up.
Don't forget to join me tomorrow sharing an oldie, I'd love to see your projects too.
That's all from me today, now to start all the holiday ironing or craft, that is the question?!

Hi Erika, pleased to hear that your mum is on the mend, poor lady.
Lovely bunny, he's so cute I'm sure he will be well loved. What an unusual name, I been trying to pronounce it, but with no luck, hugs Kate x

Enjoy time with the family
