Back Tack 3 - the bunny has landed

Is it just me, or are things a bit quiet in crafty blogland at the moment? Helloooooooo is anyone theeeeere.

I've been running around like a nutcase the past few days and I haven't done any crafting to speak of. I did get an e-mail from Larissa to say my Back Tack 3 parcel had arrived so I guess it's safe to post a picture of my bunny. Here she is.

I got very excited about the little pink rosebud buttons that I found in my Mum's button jar and decided to give bunny girl some bling jewellery. I made it detatchable because sometimes a girl needs to change her accessories. Also I wanted Larissa to be able to use the buttons for something else if she wanted to.

When you make a softie, do you always name them? I didn't and then had a pang of guilt that I'd sent her off nameless. It's not like I don't have girls names that I like a-plenty. If Mark had been a girl he would have been Sophie Beth and Johnny would have been Kitty. If I had been a boy I would have been called Russell (hmm ... quite glad I wasn't*).

*Apologies if that is your name!

I'm running off to a school association meeting tonight - got a Summer Fete to plan - so no crafting today either. Ho hum.

And I thought it was just me. Can't remember how to use my sewing machine anymore!

That's a cute bunny! I do always name my softies, but I give them ridiculous names they would probably rather forget, so your way is probably psychologically more sound.

Your nameless bunny is adorable. She has such a sweet face and I love her pink bling.

Oh, your bunny is sweet. And the buttons! The buttons!

And yes, crafty blogland has been rather quiet. I think it is because of the new-ness of summer. Once it gets really hot everyone will be crafting again.
