I wonder what is going on in your household today? Has there been a bit of this?
Well, I've had a very busy week. Making those pretty patchwork cushions, entertaining guests and... panicking! Yesterday, we went out for a spot of lunch and having parked in a conveniently situated well-known supermarket, ended up buying a few bits and pieces inside. A very loud stage whisper alerted me to the fact that the Munchkin wanted to get something for his Valentine...me!
So, about 5pm when we arrived back home, I thought, oh golly! Having already sorted out my train-loving other half for the big day, I had left out the Munchkin. I don't think I have ever made anything so quickly, from drafting the design to stitching the whole thing up and squishing it into some tissue paper ready for the next morning! My own surprise earlier that day, had occurred when I was informed that I didn't have to cook that evening because I was being taken out for dinner. Only a couple of hours to sew then...
Something for me? What can it be?
I really wanted one of these...
Look Daddy, look what I got on Valentine's Day!
The Munchkin said a while back that he would like a squishy bunny. I have had it in the back of my mind and had been thinking Easter would be the perfect moment to bring Bunny into the world.
But when I was up against it yesterday, the only thing which came into my head was "squishy bunny" and so instead of getting to it with my Spring-like fabrics which I'd always imagined making bunnies with, out came red, what other colour could there be for Valentine's Day?
I think the Munchy one will have fun with Squishy. She has whiskers sewn down but with the ends left free for twiddling by little hands. Not to mention what every self-respecting bunny must have (and another perfectly fiddly accessory) ...the cutest little bunny bob tail!
I think Squishy (I am informed she is actually called Audrey) is going to be a very well loved bunny indeed, even if she doesn't appreciate being carried by those irresistible ears!
Wishing you love, whatever you do today.
