A tail of two rabbits,

It's the school holidays here in the UK, which also means I get very little time to work in between all the other parenting stuff.  The offshoot is there's very little to blog about, hence the quietness here!

Until the other day, I'd promised the kids a comic each, and during the hour (it felt like an hour!) it took them both to choose one, I went browsing amongst the sewing magazines and discovered...


Sew Hip, issue 32 - September 2011, has a pattern extracted from my book in it!  I knew there were a few projects placed by the publisher as features, but didn't know what, when or where.


It's the baby Rabbits that are featured, along with their personalised tails.


Although the dates still look odd to me being a Brit.  As the book publisher is American, the dates were stitched with the month first, followed by the day.

If you do buy the magazine and make a Rabbit, remember to join the Countryside Softies Flickr group and post what you've made.

I absolutely love your rabbits, they are so cute! I never knew that was an american publication either.

I have your book out of the library at the moment after a very long wait! It's really gorgeous. I noticed those dates and wondered why you'd done them that way and briefly wondered if you were an ex-pat American. How odd the publishers insisted on doing it that way.

I have that magazine and the bunnies are bookmarked as a future project. They are lovely.

jacqui, no, i'm a brit, scouse to be exact! it's because the publisher is american and the book is initially printed for the american market.

even more confusing with it being animals of the british countryside!

The hearts at the bottom put the sherry on top. They tug a little on my heart strings. I'll have to try this.
