A gift and a goodbye

My dear friend Sarah of Red Gingham in New Zealand sent me a beautiful gift! I had admired her quirky rabbits for ages, and guess what arrived in the mail? Yep, a sweet little rabbit! A gorgeously girly rabbit!

She arrived wrapped in the loveliest fabric and tied with a bright pink ribbon -


with a sweet pink card -


And here is my beautifully rabbit -


she has a gorgeous flower in her, I was going to say hair, but I suppose its fur, lol -


and she is wearing the cutest little dress, made from a vintage doily -


She is adorable -


I really don't know how you found the time to make this one, as you were so incredibly busy with the Christchurch appeal. Thank you so much, Sarah, for spending precious hours making this little darling for me!

And now for the goodbye bit.........................

We are off to France again for a week or thereabouts, and as I don't have internet access at our cottage, I won't be able to post or read blogs for the next 7-10 days. Make the most of it, lol, I'll soon be back with way too long posts, lol. If I do get the chance to sneak onto friends' computers then I will of course post a quick hello. Perhaps I ought to ask you all to stop posting for a week, lol, otherwise I will be spending DAYS catching up when I get back, tehehee.
