under the bunny tree


its a little antique tool box full of knitting needles.

and the flutters above my desk

my favourite print of two tiny owl babies in the dark. its from 1860!

little bunnies in a nest.
wouldnt that be cute if
bunnies lived in nests?
you would see trees full of bunnies.... or bunny trees.

so these are the sights from my desk today
as i work on my pattern for the snake
sweater... its been a long time coming
and its almost ready. my goal is to
have the pattern finished and up
for sale on ravelry by 4 sept.
i picked that day because
its my best friends
birthday.
*lizzie*

oh here is the sweater.
i designed it a LOOONG time ago
but will finally have the pattern done
see the little snakes? ssssssssssssssss

I would love to see a knitting book that you designed. Bunnies are perfect anywhere and in nests they look just right! Love, love love the storage chest for your knitting needles. Lucky needles! I bet they sing happily to the bunnies in their nests from there. xx

the butterflies above your desk are a beautiful idea! above mine are three paintings of cats (two of them I know personally :D ) and some surrealism of mine. maybe I'll post them someday. congrats on finishing the sweater, it looks pretty difficult to make..

Wow Mouse,
What a beautiful post. You do have some very fairy things in your home!
Your sweater is stunning and looks a very complicated design!
Lovely to see you as always and thanks for visiting me.:)

Have you ever thought of moving to the West country. I live outside of Bath city. There is a lot of creative people here (musicians) and we are not far from Glastonbury for a bit of fairy magic!
If you do ever visit this part of the world let me know.:)
See you soon.

Much love Jo.xx

P.S. I do think there is a lot of fairies in the summer house but they only appear in the garden at dusk!;)

There was a "drawings of nature" exhibition ad stuck on a wall at my school. The exhibition stopped yesterday so I "stole" the ad.

In your honor, because that's an... owl that is drawn :)

It's now hanging on my stairways' wall. Love it!
