Do you remember my Fuzzypeg softie pattern? He was such fun to sew that I’ve made another – this time a friendly blue bunny in the softest felted cashmere. His tummy is Fox Hollow organic cotton, and he has the cutest woolly pompom tail. But …. he has nobody to love him. Fuzzy lives here with me, and I don’t have room for another rabbit on my shelf, which means that this little fellow is looking for a kind new home – can you help?
For the chance to win this little blue bunny please leave a comment below telling me what new softie pattern you’d like to see in the Bustle & Sew softie store. The winner will be chosen by random selection and I will post worldwide. The draw will close at midnight BST on Tuesday 21 May.
Good luck everyone!
I know that today is Mother’s Day in the United States. Here in the UK we enjoyed our Mother’s Day back in March – but I’ve decided to celebrate all over again! And because it’s not really Mother’s Day here, my gift is for all my free newsletter readers – whether you’re a mother or not! It’s a copy of my Bustle & Sew Magazine…..
If you’re a newsletter reader, then just go to your free patterns library page on my website and you’ll be able to download your copy there. If you’re not already a reader and would like to receive this magazine, then all you need to do is join using the form in the right hand sidebar. You’ll then receive a link to the free patterns library – as well as more goodies over the coming weeks. (And don’t worry, I never share your email address with anyone else).
Happy Mother’s Day!
At last – I think spring has finally sprung here in South Devon, so this week I’ve been looking around my garden – assessing the havoc and mayhem caused by both the excessive rainfall/prolonged cold weather and two very naughty newfies with large paws and inquisitive natures!
The entrance to Ben’s den where they both like to hang out!
I am sorry to say that Daisy is a bit of a digger! She started her first hole in the border whilst still very young and it didn’t originally amount to much. However, over the last week or so she has enlarged it considerably and started not one, but two additional excavations which are much more impressive! Ben, on the other hand, does not like to dig – he enjoys pruning and snipping much more – and has been working hard on enlarging his “den” hidden in the hedge at the end of the garden where he can peer through the fence and monitor the activities of my lovely next-door neighbours!
Luckily my baby courgettes are well out of the reach of their large furry paws and inquisitive whiskery faces!
My friend Jacqui, of Flapdoodle Designs is a passionate gardener – and has put together a free printable for everyone who loves their gardens – whether as keen diggers, pruners and planters – or simply sitting and enjoying the sunshine and flowers (I’m hopeful that this year we’ll have a good summer and there will be lots of sunshine and flowers!).
It’s a lovely gardener’s notebook, with nice clear lined pages for each month of the year – and some of Jacqui’s lovely illustrations too …
Jacqui’s giving away her Gardener’s Notebook printable to everyone on her free newsletter list.
