shopping handmade, and, erm, bunny fabric

I had the day off work yesterday.  I went to get my hair cut and on getting home I went out to see my bunnies.  Would you believe, someone (and I suspect it must be one of the reprobates living in the house next door) had dumped a whole pile of dog poo over the wall into my garden??  It was in a pile next to Colin and Ellis and swarming with flies.  I am absolutely furious with the disgusting b%^&*ds.

Anyway, I think you all know that I love bunnies?  So anyone that also know's Mia's work would probably guess that I'd love it.  And I do.  I have ordered from Mia before and when she brought out these sweet little needlefelted bunny brooches in a little bunny shopping bag, I couldn't resist!  As I'm a return customer, she also generously threw in a snowdrop magnet.  How cute?




I went shopping again.  I've lost the little note I wrote telling me what these fabrics are and where they're from.  I think they're from Celtic Fusion, but don't quote me.  Top left in Anita Hooey's Posy, bunnies in lilac.  Top right is Lily and Will but the other one is a bit of a mystery.


Then my Village Stash Society bundle turned up.  Orange!!  Yay!  Clearly Annie was reading me moaning about the lack of orange in my stash (or rather it's coincidence as the colours were decided from the beginning!).  Now I'm lacking purples...


The bank manager is really mad at me now, so this month will bring a bit of Littlest, a new FMQ foot and that is it!

Update: A wonderful bloggy friend sent me some more bunny fabrics yesterday!  I will post about them very soon.

That is disgusting!!! There's a guy who lives on the cul-de-sac behind us who lets his dogs go on our land (oh and doesn't pick up of course)- it's unused land but that's not the point. I do plan on collecting it up and leaving it on his front garden but then he will know it was me. Just his crap, not the stuff produced by our dogs, I am not stooping to his level.

I can't believe how many bunny fabrics you have! It is becoming an obsession, my dear, we may have to organise an intervention...Chrissie x ;-)

I hope you put the dog crap back over on their side of the wall. What is wrong with people? Neighbours are so wretched. >:( Cute fabric!

I'm catching up with your postings, first thing in the morning. That little bunny broach made me squeal with delight. I can now start my day with just the right amount of cuteness, in my gas tank. I adore the new bunny fabrics and those orange ones are delicious.....or maybe it's the muffin, I'm eating, that's delicious. Either way, I love the orange.
