Home books Tawny


It was so beautiful at lunchtime today, sitting out in the garden, sun shining, cats at my feet, washing drying on the line!


Guess what it’s doing this evening though ~ raining!! There’s no sitting outside, no sun, no cats (they have more sense) and the washing is dripping on the line because I thought it was only going to be a shower and left it!

I suppose that’s April for you, sunshine and showers!


I’ve been a lucky girl again, when the lovely Emma Varnam held a giveaway on her blog to win a signed copy of her new crochet book Crocheted Keyrings & Charms, I just had to join in and you’ve guessed it, I won. It’s a gorgeous book and it even has a little rabbit bag charm, what more could a bunny lover want!


Well I have managed to get at least one of the little cardigans from earlier in the week onto a bunny!

I’d like you all to meet Tawny.

Owl Collage

Tawny is named after a beautiful little owl and she has little owls all over her skirt and her cardie is fastened by one too.


Another weekend almost here again, I hope you all have a lovely one and lets hope the weather behaves itself for all of us! Thank you all for your visits and your lovely comments which I always enjoy reading.

Happy weekend! 🙂

Good evening Vivienne. What a lucky bunny you are winning the book, they look like fun projects. Hello to little Tawny, how pretty she is in her pretty dress and cardi. We have also had a day of sunshine and showers but luckily I got the washing in before the heavens opened this afternoon. Have a lovely weekend, I think Saturday looks good for gardening..hooray!

Hi Vivienne, Tawny is certainly a cutie! All your bunnies are a fashion statement and trend setter! I’m sure her new home will love her to pieces. Crazy weather over there, but we have the same here, so I guess we are all in the same boat. Sun, warmth and outdoor time is all we ask : )
Hope we all get it this weekend, enjoy, xoRobin

We’ve been getting those pesky little showers too – but I guess like they say April showers bring May flowers and I’m very very ready for those flowers.

What a gorgeous post, I started smiling as soon as I scrolled down as far as Tawny’s ears, she’s so gorgeous. And how lucky to win this lovely book.
Your flowers are such a welcome reminder of spring too.

Another beautiful Rabbit! Have a lovely weekend Vivienne and heres hoping that the sun shows its face again.

It’s lovely to see the sun shining on the spring flowers in your garden Vivienne. There are no spring flowers in my garden at the moment (only piles of rubble and mud so it’s good to see that your garden is blossoming. Nice to see little Tawny too – she has such a pretty skirt.

We had torrential rain here yesterday but it is supposed to brighten up for Saturday! Tawny is lovely with her owl theme and such a sweet little owl fastener. How many bunnies have you made to date Vivienne? (Oh, and lovely giveaway prize too!) x

The bunny clothes are so sweet and you seem to find the most wonderful buttons to go with them. That’s a nice looking book. It’s been so nice to see the sun this week and tomorrow looks promising too, have a great weekend Vivienne. xx

You are one lucky lady with the giveaways arent you?!!!Well done you Vivienne!
Tawny is very sweet with all the little owl details, and your pots of narcissus are lovely.

Hello dear Vivienne,

That book was meant to be yours 🙂 it’s ever so perfect win! I can’t wait to see those mini-bunnies you will create (oh I am sure you will master them!). Tawny is so pretty too, those owls-accessories she has are brilliant… Lovely button and all!

Hi Vivienne,

We had a lovely sunny day in Holland too, but the wind was still a bit cold! Tawny looks lovely! What a great outfit she is wearing.

Happy weekend,

Good morning Vivienne. I hope the sun is with you today. I’ve actually put my washing outside – fingers crossed the skies remain blue!
You’ve been very lucky with all your wins lately – Have you bought a lottery ticket??? :0)
A warm welcome to Tawny, another lovely bunny creation.
