tulip



Tulip will only garden with her apron on - she's fussy that way.
I have taken giant liberties with the Month of Softies theme. It's "Plant Life" but somehow I couldn't get bunnies out of my mind (thanks to a certain trampy bunny I know). To her credit, Tulip is all about flowers and even though she's pink, I believe she has a genuine green thumb.
These days I'd rather show the seams of my softies because I can get a little stuck in the finishing details and at this point it's simply about making. The less I worry about, the more fun I have. Oddly enough it's the clothing (if my last bunny's stockings count as clothing) that I'm taking the most care with. Phases will be phases I guess.
Note to self: I must get more of that polka dot ribbon.

I love your bunnies. They remind me of Fifi, if she was an extra in A Clockwork Orange

Sam: I haven't visited my favorite blogger for a long time and how I've enjoyed backtracking! You simply amaze me and I love everything you submit. You are beautiful in your tangerine sweater (bedhead and all). Tulip is adorable and I'd love to have her in my garden happily planting flowers with me. Thanks for some much needed enjoyment!

Hi Sam
I read your blog all the time as well and I'm a Queen's grad, so I am familiar with your husband's work also. What an artistic pair!
One question: where do you find these lovely fabrics, like Tulip - is that a boiled wool body? Thrifted? How did you track that down.
