For some time now, Bartholomew Archibald Bunny and his mum and dad (Blossom and Alfie) have been expecting a new arrival. Uncle Randall wrote to them and asked if he could come and stay. Bartholomew was very excited - he had heard such tales of Uncle Randall and is often told stories of his escapades. Uncle Randall, you understand, was a pirate. All very thrilling for a little bunny to hear about.
Batholomew read books and even learnt how to make a ship just in case he ever got the chance to go to sea.
And then just the other day, Postie knocked at the door with a parcel for me which was hastily pinched by a family of very excited little rabbits.
And here he is. Uncle Randall has never stopped talking once - here he is relating just how big the fish was that got away ('really? As big as this?'). He has fitted in perfectly to the Stash Basket (apparently much like the Crow's Nest on top of the ship) and is settling in very well to life on dry land.
The workmanship that goes into the making of these wonderful Little Cotton Rabbits is quite stunning. Julie is a very talented person indeed. And now that I have 4 of them, I will stop there and let someone else have a turn to try and win one.
On totally unrelated news, looky here - another finished object! A pair of socks! And going on the rules which you so foolishly set yourself Warren, that's actually 2 finished items! Hope you're saving hard!!!!!
