Yesterday we went to the Christmas Fair in Kingsbridge. There was mulled wine, mince pies, street entertainment and lots of very cold-looking stall holders – which reminded me why I’d decided not to take any more open-air stalls in the colder months! We had a great time, and Ben received many compliments on his Christmas outfit – some mini-bunting wrapped several times loosely around his neck and firmly secured in place. Above is a quick snap taken on my phone (hence the poor quality) – don’t you love the resigned expression on his face!
“But what has this to do with the Easter Bunny?” I hear you asking. Well, feeling all Christmassy we got home and then I popped into our village shop to pick up a pint of milk. And what did I see on the counter?! Cadbury’s Creme Eggs!! The earliest sighting yet! And of course Easter means bunnies as well as eggs – but these are not Easter Bunnies …
…. These are lovely vintage transfers from a booklet in my inherited stash. I think they’re great and have been meaning to stitch them for some time. I also think they are more Christmassy than spring-like with the fir trees and stars. They’re probably going to be my Christmas project this year – I love stitching bunnies, such attractive animals. I think I’ll make mine into a cushion ….
….. rather like the one in the original booklet. And I’ve scanned and put the whole leaflet together as a pdf for you – it includes stitching instructions and more project ideas. If you’d like it then please click here to download the pdf free from Bustle & Sew.
