I got some awesome new stuff recently--first, a new t-shirt featuring that suave and sophisticated ladies' bun from the West Coast, Tyler:
The only way this shirt could be more awesome
is if it said, "Helllllllllo, ladies!"
Then there's the adorable tote bag I won in the Rabbit Slippers giveaway:
Just too cute for words.
They've got another contest going on now, so be sure to stop over there and check it out.
I'll definitely be needing the tote this weekend. Mr. Mick and I are going to be doing our first educational event for the House Rabbit Connection this Saturday and Sunday (Feb. 18th and 19th) from 11am to 2pm at the Petco store on Merrill Road in Pittsfield, MA, so if you're in the area, feel free to stop by and say hi. I'm hoping to bring Mick both days, but it will all depend on how Saturday goes for him. I will definitely be taking pictures (and video if possible), so you'll get to see how it went.
In other news, I have been very busy working on crochet projects. Right now, I have two going at once: a baby blanket for a relative, and a throw that will be a housewarming gift for friends. I will post pictures when I'm done; I would post a sneak-peek, but there is the possibility that the recipients might see them and I want them to be a surprise.
Instead, here's a few pictures of my last completed project, a throw/lap blanket I made for Mick's beloved Auntie Shell of The Raspberry Rabbits:
I had made Shell a scarf as a Christmas gift, and she liked it so much, she asked for a throw out of the same yarn, which is Plymouth Yarn's Baby Alpaca Brush. It's soft and fuzzy and very snuggy, according to Shell. The great thing about making throws this time of year is that they keep you warm while you're making them.
That's all for now, I think. I need to get all His Majesty's stuff together for the trip to Petco tomorrow. Wish us luck!
