Raspberries, Daisies & An Anniversary

by greenrabbitdesigns

Another bag is finished, this time it’s the raspberry one. It is knitted in an alpaca/wool/acrylic mix yarn in a lovely shade of green.

I have lined the bag in a pretty raspberry print fabric and pinned the raspberry corsage on to the front.

August and September are a time of celebration in my family. We had my husband’s birthday in August, mine last week and on Monday 12th my husband and I will be married for 30 years! To celebrate our Pearl Anniversary we going on a little trip to Barcelona from Monday to Friday. We are soooo looking forward to it. ๐Ÿ™‚

So I will be missing from this little place next week and I thought it would be a good time to have a small giveaway to run over the days I’m away!

I have made a little corsage of Michaelmas Daisies. I don’t have any of these in my garden but I would like some, they are a lovely little burst of colour at this time of year.

So if you would like to win this corsage along with some pretty notecards then all you have to do is leave a comment before midnight (BST) on Sunday 18th September, easy as that! (This giveaway is now closed, thank you)

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and an enjoyable week ahead and I’ll ‘see’ you all soon.
Thanks as always for visiting me here and for all your lovely birthday wishes this week, I really appreciated every single one of them. ๐Ÿ™‚

Vivienne, the bag is gorgeous, and I love the fabric you’ve used for the lining, and the raspberry corsage is the perfect finishing touch.

Happy Anniversary to you both, enjoy your trip, I’m sure it will be very romantic.

Happy Happy Anniversary!!! I do hope your trip is lovely! Your knitting amazes me every time. With you in mind I picked up the needles and have started to teach myself. It’s going to be a long journey :).

Stephanie September 10, 2011 - 8:15 am

Another beautfiul bag, Vivienne! It is so hard to choose between the raspberry and strawberry… a little like having to choose an ice-cream when you are little.

Have a beautiful time in Barcelona and congratulations on 30 years of wedded bliss ๐Ÿ˜‰

Your bags are very lovely Vivienne and sorry I missed your birthday – happy belated wishes! x

Hi Vivienne, another divine bag from Green Rabbit HQ, the raspberry fabric is lovely and unusual, I have lots of strawberry fabrics in my stash but haven’t seen rasps on cloth.
What a lovely time of year to have your anniversary, the days still long enough to be nice and especially in Barcelona, not that I’ve been, but I’m sure it will be fab.
Enjoy yourselves x

Jenny September 10, 2011 - 12:50 pm

Happy anniversary to you both… have a wonderful time in Barcelona – it is a gorgeous and really interesting city with so many things to see. If you get a chance, go and see the ‘singing fountains’ (google them!) one evening, they are amazing!! The view from the top is fantastic and it really is a great sight, it is an experience I tell you ๐Ÿ˜‰ Also, Park Guell is a must see – the mosaics are amazing, oh I’m jealous! Will cross my fingers for your lovely giveaway too ๐Ÿ™‚ Jenny x

Hope you had a great day!

A very belated happy Birthday to you Vivienne and many congratulations on your anniversary. Hope you’ve had a wonderful time in Barcelona. I love your new designs – the raspberry bag is beautiful.

Kristen September 26, 2011 - 4:41 pm

Nicely shot. The pottery was interesting – to see finally the influence in Mexico of the Spanish taste for color. Again, in the rest, the mix of traditional European concepts with modern disregard for the conventions of form.

thelinencat September 28, 2011 - 8:29 pm

Obviously I missed the giveaway (doh! that’ll teach me for being so behind in my reading) but I wanted to say how lovely the raspberry bag is, especially with it’s matching lining.

My sister’s garden is full of purple Michaelmas Daisies at the moment and it’s inspiring me to plant some in mine (which is just dull green right now with very little flower colour).

Happy Anniversary!
