Giveaway: Linen Rabbit Egg Cosy

It always amazes me how quickly things move on from Christmas. I LOVE Christmas, but come to New Year’s Day and I’m ridiculously keen to get the decorations down.img_20190109_121612Like half of the World, I am currently drinking only water, eating lettuce (in an attempt to undo the festive excesses) and dreaming of Spring.dsc_0323It’s the same with my sewing work, I’m all for flowers and bright, sunny colours, I’m done with Winter tones.dsc_0324Despite being away, I squeezed in some sewing over the holidays. The floral cushion was a little something for me, it took such a short time and I’ve had both the cushion pad and the tapestry hanging around for months and months waiting. I do find it difficult to carve out any time for sewing for myself.dsc_0326I also managed to run up a batch of new Linen Rabbit Egg Cosies, because…img_20190109_121136ta-da! I made Country Living again. Can’t lie, chuffed to bits.dsc_0334I did make more of the ones featured, with the woodland print ears, but I still had the Liberty Tanaย  Lawn out from my Fox and Badger making laying on my worktop and I couldn’t resist making some with ‘Mirabelle’ ears too.img_20190109_130012I also remembered that I have one of the very original rabbits left from years ago, with the first ears (I ‘improved’ the design with the second batch as it bugged me that it was so difficult to make the ears neat and symmetrical) so he’s here for giving away to anyone that comments on this post. I guess I’ll randomly pick a name on the 26th January.dsc_0344I’m not sure if I’ll make more, even with the newer ears they are a bu*%er to stitch evenly and the linen I use is also a nightmare to iron, but I can imagine lots more Liberty Tana versions in my head and once I get a plan I find it difficult to ignore. We’ll see.
