A lovely day yesterday but today it is pou
ring down!!!

I brought projects with me to London  and have completed three....



.....another pair of socks for a birthday gift, a little jacket for baby and the old linen rabbit....





....top of its ears to tip of toes measures 18"...


.....need to make some clothes!

 Really enjoyed making this and it is washable.

Rabbit is saying goodbye to the precious bundle!!




Might look for some pale grey linen to make another, I find hand sewing and embroidery so relaxing!
