Mousehole Village crafting~

So here he is...this is for Daniel. This gorgeous baby needs a cute gift this year. This soft toy is an adaption to a pattern I have spotted so I have no illustrations. The fabric I used is Amy Butler, some lovely natural linen and organic valor. I suppose you can call it a 'Bunny gnome!'. So, my Homemade Christmas gifts are well underway. Last year I belted out that it was 'homemade Christmas' and I got so few done...This year I am determined to walk the talk~!

My mousehole inspiration moment is my old kitchen cabinet that I brought in from the veranda. I gave it a good clean out and added some greengate favorites.. The added fairy lights always bring the best atmosphere into my kitchen. I love tins and jugs. I always say a change is as good as a holiday so, this home gets moved around allot~!

A happy day to you~
Warm regards

That bunny is just so sweet Suzanne, not to mention that little baby:)

Thinking of you.
Warm wishes, Tonya

Hello my sista
Little Daniel looks so beautiful. What a blessing he is to your family. And your crafting - incredible! A very special gift that will always be treasured I am sure. I am sure you are enjoying spring in your garden. Our young cockerel silkie crowed for the first time on Saturday. What a happy crow. The boys were jumping with delight! Love to you and have a happy day today.

So cute!! Suzanne, I had to laugh when I saw the adorable bunny...I have been working up a bunny pattern too, made out of linen and cute prints - I made a sample, but not quite pleased with it yet so still working.
Little baby Daniel is soooo precious!! What a treasure ^_^

What a great cupboard you've brought in. Really lovely. Your little gnome rabbit is just too cute and I'm sure little Daniel is loving it. He is such a beautiful baby.
