Yarn Along


Well Hello there!



Abbey has knitted her first Little Cotton Rabbit


Isn't that little tail just the cutest!



Her shoes will match the dress that is on the needles now.
So next week this little nameless rabbit will be fully clothed.

As she is nameless we thought we would ask blog readers of what they thought her name should be





  Oh my what a fat tummy she has,

 No doubt blog readers will be able to come up with a name that suits the little cotton rabbit.

Books...

The Amish Garden.I'm actually really enjoying - it is four short stories "nice" clean gentle stories just what my brain and soul needs with everything that has been going on of late. Each story has a garden theme and I find myself nodding along and longing to get out in my garden. I'm up to the third short story :"Seeds of Love" about heirloom seeds -


I was soo cross this week that due to the trees falling on the barn I missed out on going to Kay Baxter's talk in Wellington - Kay and team are travelling New Zealand raising funds and awareness of our New Zealand heritage seeds - something I am very passionate about.

  Koanga Institute is a Charitable Trust that NEEDS to raise money to keep doing the amazing work they have been doing.

Click here for more information on how you can donate to help save New Zealand's heritage seeds.

Linking up to Yarn Along.

  5. the bunny is so cute! The book looks lovely - I like reading about the Amish community. Such a shame about the heirloom seeds talk - perhaps they will reschedule?

    1. I'm a fan of the Amish community too - not hat I could personally live it - but Love the calm simple back to basics that is shown in books - No doubt it is a tad different in real life. One day I'd love to visit the Amish area

  7. oh that is darling and so well done! Heirloom seeds! I wrote about preserving them (in an environment column I used to write) and still feel very strongly about how important it is to preserve and use them. Great to know we also have that in common
