Alfred Rabbit

What a funny old winter we are having. Even up here at the top of mainland Scotland our tulip bulbs are making an appearance which is most unusual as we don't see them until everybody else's in Britain are dead and buried! (well that's an exaggeration I know but ours seem to be the last!) I just hope we don't suddenly get buried in snow like last year. Even the birds are calling at some unearthly hour in pitch darkness. Don't they know that spring chorus has to wait till spring!

Here is one of Samuel Rabbit's brothers (of which he has a lot as they are rabbits you know!) I've called him Albert as I like the old fashioned names.


He wanted a red jumper as it's nice and cheery and matches his blue trousers and shoes.

Here is his back view...he looks as tho he's just going to do a dance! Well he is a happy little chappie.

He also has a suprise under his jumper...a little heart. I think I will put them on all the bunnies as it adds a little something to them....and if they are presents what could be nicer. He is knitted with aran yarn which is 25% wool and measures approx 9" tall.

Just reading a book called 'Meet me at the Cupcake Cafe' showed the title to Head Honcho and he said cupcakes arn't big enough. So we came up with a new name for men.....Mug Muffins....bigger and last longer than a cupcake!! What's he like lol.

Forgot to add, I am having trouble leaving comments on others blogs. I havn't the foggiest why not it. The verification code is either not there or half there and so not able to press enter cos that's gone as well :0(
So I'm really sorry that I seem to be amiss but will see if I can get someone more techie than me to have a look.

    Alot of people seem to be having problems with leaving coments on blogs lately, you are not the first one to mention this.

  9. Penny, my boy and girl bunnies arrived the same day I left for New York (last Tuesday) so unpacked 'em when I got home, yesterday.
    I am thrilled with them both!
    Millie received her little ballerina today, and am sending little Peter Rabbit to Bevan, in Ireland, tomorrow.
