Poinsettia

by greenrabbitdesigns

Hi everyone, hope this finds you all well and not frantic in all the Christmas rush!
I suppose I should be doing other more essential things but over the last couple of days I decided I would like to make a poinsettia corsage, so after the usual knitting and re-knitting and tweaking I have what I think resembles a poinsettia!

I have been doing some Christmas shopping though and after the car illness (it’s all better now) we managed to do last night what we had intended to do on Saturday! However amid the buying of Christmas gifts I did manage to sneak in a little something for myself and these gorgeous white bunnies just had to come home with me!

I found them in Urban Outfitters, I just love all the quirkiness in this shop!
Anyhow when I saw this little pair I just knew I had to have them, a girl can never have too many bunnies. 🙂

Well this photo shows exactly what I need to do today, they really should be on their way by now!! Actually it’s just one of the many things I need to do today! I also have a meal out tonight with friends which I’m looking forward to as well so I had better love you and leave you and get on with it all.

Thank you all so much for continuing to call in to see me here, I really do appreciate all your comments and the fact that you take the time to make them!
Have a great day and enjoy your Christmas preparations! 🙂

You are such a clever lady Vivienne, just making your pattern up like that. It’s a beautiful Poinsettia – if you had time to make some more, they’d make a lovely Xmas wreath.
Violet and I popped into town to do a bit of Xmas shopping today – it turned into a bloody nightmare as Violet decided to wander off in a very busy House of Fraser. Luckily she hadn’t gone too far, but it was a heart stopping moment for me.
I hope you were listening to cheesy Xmas music whilst you were writing your cards.

Have a wonderful evening out with you friends.

The corsage looks amazing, you are very clever at inventing patterns. I do love the sweet little white bunnies, (I love real rabbits too). Good luck getting your cards done – I seem to take ages doing mine! Enjoy your evening. Helen x

I thought I was the only one who did a little shopping for themselves this holiday season. I also have given up on Christmas cards … I never seem to get them put in the mail before Christmas is actually here.

You have done a great job on capturing the likeness of the poinsettia. I like all the little pearly beads in the middle. Enjoy your night out! x

Ohmygoodness Viv! It’s absolutely gorgeous an exact replica. And, the bunnies you are so right about them. This time of year there are so many adorable things not found year round. A night out! Love them!

Enjoy yours,

Hugs, Dani

I love the corsage, Viv!

And oh, someone else is still writing the cards too *pen on fire here today* – they’re looking pretty!

And nope, girl cannot have too many bunnies 😉

Happy Wednesday!

Yours,
Mia

The Poinsettia is just perfect, but I’m in love with the little white bunnies. I guess I’m not unusual in this, but white is my color choice for decorating – and how can you miss with bunnies? JUST FUN!

Vivienne – have you seen these bunnies over on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop/ArtMind?section_id=6828879

That is such a perfect poinsettia – lovely! Your little bunnies are very cute. I love the one floppy ear and you’re right about bunnies, there’s no such thing as too many! Good luck with your card writing – I must get on with mine too.

What a *lovely* photo of your beautiful ponsettias in the snow! Well worth that brave venture out into the elements. 🙂
