The chart for the bookmark is from an old Gallery magazine. It was parts of a kitchen sampler that i adapted to fit. I decided on the yellow edged 28ct linen band to make it a bit different and attached this fabric i found in my stash onto the back with the iron on 'wundaweb' skirt/trouser turning up stuff as i wanted it to be as thin as possible. A member of our stitching club is going to laminate it to make it wipe clean and protect it. You can see the book underneath that was donated to us as the prize for the best in the cookery section by Sarah Raven the author.
I'd like you to meet Lucy-Lu, she is the house rabbit of a friend of mine. She is such a character and runs to meet me when i go to visit and expects a nice treat. She was the inspiration for the first bunny i made (Rupert). If you remember he was the Easter gift for Lucy's owner. I have made and given away 22 more bunny's since then and decided that it would be nice for the final one to be Lucy-Lu herself. I'm still waiting to hear that one of the bunny's has arrived safely with it's owner in the US but decided that today i would give knitted Lucy-Lu to her new mum.
The knitting needles are still in the workbox as i've decided to knit something for my entry into the show this year. It can be anything knitted but i have found a lovely pattern for a very different kind of toy that i started yesterday. Wonder if you can guess what it might be ....
I'd like to thank you all for your wonderful comments whilst making the bunny's and i've had some really nice emails about them asking if they are for sale. Unfortunately the copyright wording on the pattern states that you are not allowed to make any kind of commercial or industrial profit from them so this is not an option - i'm so sorry as i really do enjoy knitting them.
