Okay, we've got one last bit of catching-up to do and then you'll be all caught up on what's been going on around here.
First off. check out this bit of adorableness:
It's a tissue box cover made to look like a couch--I had to laugh; my son saw it and said, "How's the rabbit supposed to fit on that?!"
Isn't it great? My friend Paula contacted me on Facebook about a friend of hers, Melinda (who is now my friend too), who was involved with a fundraiser for Junior Achievement selling these adorable covers in a variety of patterns. There were three that had rabbits on them; this is one of the other ones:
I immediately contacted Melinda and ordered one. You can order one, too--the fundraiser for JA is over, but Melinda has some covers left over and she is donating the proceeds from selling those to rabbit rescue. The covers cost $20 plus $5 shipping ($7 for international shipping), so if you are interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you Melinda's contact info.
In other news, this past Friday, I finished the second baby blanket I was making for my cousin's new daughter:
Here's a closeup of the pattern:
This and the other blanket I made will be given to my newest family member on Memorial Day. Next project on the list is a throw blanket for my niece and her new husband; they got married last month, so this will be their wedding gift. I'm just waiting for the yarn I ordered to get here so I can start.
And now, your moment of *squee*...
Wait, did I say *squee*? I'm sorry, I meant *SQUEE*!
A friend of mine sent me these pics: this is a nest of baby bunnehs found under the slide in the playground of one of the local preschools. The nest was not disturbed, and the children were allowed to peek, but NOT touch, and they are thriving quite well. The following pics were taken more recently:
Mr. Mick was gracious enough to allow me to post these pics instead of his own, although if you are looking for a Mick fix, feel free to click HERE--I asked The Boy if he would take some pictures of Mick for the annual Bunspace calendar contest--I wanted 10, he took over 200. These are the best of the bunch.
*whew* I thought I was never going to get caught up here. Yay!
To everyone and everybun--Mr. Mick and I wish you a Happy Memorial Day, and to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country, we say "Thank You and Bless You".
