FLUFFY BUNNIES. TOYS TOYS.

SONY DSCTHIS LITTLE FLUFFY BUNNY FAMILY LIVES IN MY KITCHEN. THEY EAT CARROTS FOR BREAKFAST, GRASS FOR LUNCH & SPAGHETTI FOR TEA.SONY DSCI MADE THIS LITTLE BUNNY WITH A VERY RICKETY SEWING MACHINE & I MADE THE PATTERN MYSELF WITH SOME SKETCHING PAPER & A GRAPHITE PENCIL.SONY DSCI USED SOME LOVELY FAUX FUR FROM MY LOCAL CRAFT SHOP. I HAND STITCHED THE EYES WITH FELT & A NEEDLE & THREAD.SONY DSCTHIS LITTLE BUNNY WAS HAND STITCHED IN FELT. I DREW THE PICTURE OF THE RABBIT ON THE FELT WITH CHALK THEN JUST CUT OUT THE BUNNY & STITCHED IT TOGETHER.

YARN BOMBED TREE IN THE MIDDLE OF OUR STREET

SONY DSCI WAS KNITTING IN FRONT OF THE TV WHEN I GOT THE URGE TO ENGAGE IN SOME KNITTING ANARCHY. I HEADED DOWN MY STREET WITH A BIG PIECE OF KNITTING & SOME CABLE TIES & CREATED SOME STREET ART ON MY STREET.SONY DSCA LADY IN A TRACKSUIT & FLUFFY SLIPPERS GAVE ME THE HAIRY EYEBALL WHILE I WAS TAKING PHOTOGRAPHS OF MY STREET CRAFT, BUT SHE SAID NOTHING & SHUFFLED OFF QUIETLY.SONY DSCIT WAS DUSK & I TRIED TO TAKE LOTS OF PHOTOGRAPHS BEFORE NIGHTFALL JUST IN CASE IT GETS TAKEN DOWN BY EITHER THE LOCAL TEENAGERS OR THE COUNCIL.SONY DSCI WON’T BE SAD IF IT GETS REMOVED, JUST SO LONG AS A FEW PEOPLE SEE IT FIRST & IT HOPEFULLY MAKES THEM SMILE. IF IT IS LEFT ALONE THEN I WILL KEEP AN EYE ON IT & IF OR WHEN IT GETS FADED & TATTERED THEN I’LL CUT IT DOWN MYSELF AS I LIKE TO PROPERLY MAINTAIN MY YARN BOMBING.SONY DSC
