At the moment life is demanding and exhausting which means I struggle to get on here and post as much as I'd like to. Life's all about getting the balance right isn't it and at the moment it's all very finely balanced to keep control. On Mondays and Fridays though I try to do what I love best and that's make stuff.
For a long time now Mr Bun's been telling me again and again I should make the bunnies I sketch into real blankety bunnies. This morning I finally kicked myself up the bum and started cutting out bunny body shapes from recycled blankets.
As the hours ticked by I found I'd handstitched a bunny body and a bunny head. I did also get slightly sidetracked for a while by cutting out the shapes for a dress from that lovely Liberty curtain fabric I showed you before.
Then I got back to stitching on my lady bunnies head and suddenly Bell Bun was born. She's very much in need of a day dress, pink shoes, frilly knicks and a woolly scarf to keep the autumn chills at bay and then I think she'll be ready to say hello properly.
I'm so glad that I have a man who believes in me and won't let me stop being me as sometimes we all need that kick up the bum don't we.
My other wee star tonight was Little Bun who wrote the most wonderful lesson plan for me for tommorow. She completely understands the learning difficulties faced by many of my students and how hard it is to engage their interest so she comes up with the most marvellous ideas. Not bad for a 10 year old. In return for her loveliness I made this Holly Hobby pillowslip for her the other day from fabric sent to me by Jane. Little Bun had been asking for something to be made from it for a while and she's pretty pleased with what I stitched up for her.
Well that's me until the weekend. See you then.
