A Bag, A Cat & Some Bunnies

by greenrabbitdesigns

Well I think that post title pretty much sums me up, if you just added some flowers and some chocolate, I think that would be me in a nutshell !!!

I have at last finished the bag that I bought this yarn for. That was a few weeks ago now but I’ve been distracted by other projects along the way, however this weekend past I made the effort to get it finished.

I quite like teal and mustard together, I think they compliment each other.

I’ve lined the bag in a mustard coloured cotton fabric and like all my bags I’ve added a little inside pocket.

The bag has been decorated with crocheted flowers with turquoise crystal bead centres.

I’ll be adding it to my Etsy shop.

Whilst trying to photograph the bag in the garden I was joined by this fellow! This is Ginger and he’s one of our cat friends but he doesn’t make a very good photographic assistant I have to say. He managed to get between the camera and the bag in an effort to get stroked, he then kept nudging my arm as I was about to take the picture and then he almost pushed me into the flower bed rubbing up and down my back as I got down to photograph the bag!!
You’ll be pleased to know that he was suitably rewarded for his help with a big cuddle and some lunch! He is a lovely boy. 🙂

And now to the bunnies…..!

If you follow Mia’s blog you will have already seen these lovely coasters. Now Mia was very discreet being the excellent seller that she is and didn’t say who they were for but I’m sure some of you did guess who the bunny coaster commission was for!
I bought a set of snowmen coasters from Mia last Christmas and loved them so much that I thought a set for Easter would be lovely, so I asked her if she would make some for me and of course that was no problem at all. I am absolutely delighted with them, they are so pretty, she also made me a gorgeous little felted bunny to hang on my bag and as always everything comes with the most beautiful hand made gift tags. Just look at the detail in the little rabbits! Thank you so much Mia, I’m thrilled with them. You can find more of Mia’s wonderful creations here.

Well after a very dull start today the weather picked up beautifully and we have ended up with a lovely afternoon, let’s hope it continues into tomorrow!

Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday! 🙂

Lovely new bag Vivienne, I agree that the colours really compliment one another.You and I both feature our cat friends in our posts today…but I didn’t realise until I looked that none of them are actually owned by you – LOL. I will have to send Billy over for some dinner too! Mia’s coasters are so very pretty. I will soon be putting my snowmen ones away…me thinks I will look out for a summery design from her.I wonder if pigs could be incorporated…!??
It’s clouded over now but we had a lovely sunny day here.

Dear Viv,

Your bag is very pretty, so springly and I love the lining you use! I am also so happy that you liked your bunnies, it was a lovely custom-work!

Happy and sunny days with your lovely assistant!

Oh I love your bag – such wonderful spring colors! I have been thinking about you lately since the bunnies that run wild around here are making their appearance 🙂

Your bag is really pretty, love that turquoise! Your furry friend is also very sweet, looks like he’s enjoying basking in the lovely spring sunshine! Let’s hope it continues, I’m becoming accustomed to it, hehe! Have a lovely rest of your week x

I loved the new bag, new colours and so spring-like – and the story of your assistant ‘helping’ while you took the pix made me smile! The bunnies by Mia are very sweet and have come to the right person! I hope you have some sunny garden days this week.

Another beautiful bag. I do like mustard too! I love ginger’s face and the way his eyes are tightly closed. Mia certainly does make some beautiful things. The coasters are so detailed and the tags are delightful also. x

Great colors in that bag – and the kitty is just too cute! 🙂

You are so talented! I am a huge fan of the colors you chose and thought the beaded detailing in the center of the posies just the sweetest thing ever!

Pam March 16, 2011 - 11:12 am

The bag is lovely Vivienne – and I’ll bet it’s made as well as those in Treacle. Had a look at them the other day and they really are gorgeous!
Not surprised you got those bunny coasters etc – very you.

You know, I’ve never been great friends with yellow, but pairing it with this beautiful blue makes me rethink my position … thanks for a fresh look!

Dont worry Vivienne
My husbands doing the floors so no skulking or crudeness this time.x

I’m playing blog catch up and I’m two posts behind on yours (not good at all – smack my wrists!)

What a lovely bag! You’re right – the colours suit each other beautifully!

My daughter is home! I am happy! I also have a huge pile of the muddiest clothes ever to wash but I don’t care as my girl is home! 🙂

Hi Vivienne
Thanks for your comment on my blog – glad you enjoyed the walk!
Have just been rather naughty and indulgent and have bought that gorgeous pink scarf in your Etsy shop – I dreamt of a scarf like that a few days ago!!!!
Looking forward to it!!!!

Love the splash of Springtime colour in your new bag Vivienne. Everything you make always looks so proffessional – I’m dead jealous of your knitting and sewing abilities.
What a great ginger assistant you’ve got there :0)
Mia’s makes are as wonderful as ever – the bunny keyring/bag charm is so cute.
