Sunny Sunday

To accomplish great things,
we must not only act, but
also dream, not only plan,
but also believe.
-Anatole France

Feeling a little overwhelmed this week with all the events happening, but charging ahead
all the same. Children's Book Week, a big celebration in libraries everywhere is being
held this week. In the past few weeks I have been slowly making and gathering items for
my display for the school. In my next posting I hope to have some pictures to share with

I have been busy getting my show entries ready too. I had made one Mr. Bunny and now I
have finished the family. It is one of the one child families, not the typical bunny family of
50+ bunnies.
 It was such fun making the whole family. Someone had given me a pattern recently
and I couldn't resist. The whole family is knitted in an 8 ply wool and size 11 needles.
I kept the needles small so you don't see the stuffing show through. It is a beautiful sunny
day here today, about 25 C and starting to warm up for our long awaited spring season.
I have done a fair bit of gardening this weekend and the bush below was planted last year
and is now taller than me.

I'm a big lover of nasturtiums and my plants have busted out all over the yard. My chooks are
checking them out too. They love to eat them.
 I have kept up with some knitting during the week, even though I have still been very
busy with the quiz night we have coming up soon. I managed to get a bit of a head
cold too and didn't pick up my knitting one night. My darling Pixie didn't cope very
well with the sight of no knitting going on. He knew I wasn't feeling flash. I'm back on
track now though.The little red and pink number below is the start of a shoulder bag. It is
done in blocks of knitted and purled stitches across the row. I am making a glass carrier to
go with it. 
I am off to check of Heather the feather today. I have some nice mud cake to take with me,
that will cheer her will certainly cheer anybody up. Love mud cake!!!!! Well I'm out of here.
There is just too much gorgeous sunshine outside to stay still. Enjoy this lovely Sunday. Regards, Anita.

What a lovely bunny family. Now they are the sort I think are wonderful as they obviously understand planned parenthood. Good luck with the busy time ahead. I always enjoyed book week at work. And I know the show can't be far away!

Love the bunnies,so sweet! Though I do think you should make the other 49 baby bunnies!

I love your bunnies but I really think they need a new tiny baby wrapped in a blankie.
Nasturtiums bring back happy memories of my childhood when everyone had them growing through their fences into the back lanes.
