A New Look and some bunny loves you

I’ve been toying around with a new blog design for a while now but hadn’t got around to it, so tonight I’ve been having a play.  I’m really a blue girl, or a red girl, but I’m lovin’ the mint with the watermelon highlights…….what do you think?   It’s a bit like redecorating your home and decluttering and re-organising (my ‘real’ home) is very high on my agenda…..so I guess this is a start.   I’ve still got to play around with my header…..I need to make it more ‘mine’ but that will evolve over the next couple of weeks, I’m sure.

Over the weekend, hubby has been working nights, so I’ve been catching up on some ‘quiet’ activities……general ‘housey’ stuff, along with some ‘just for the fun of it’ catchup stitching.

As I was tidying up my space, I found a pattern I’d bought in Melbourne at Let’s Get Stitched earlier this year and I thought it would be perfect to do……so …….

just add fabric and voila……instant family

Weeeeeell, I couldn’t stop at one could I?  Now I know these are called Quick Easter Bunnies, but I really think bunnies deserve centre stage all year around..they’re soooo cute!  I think I might have to make more of these.  Now I know why they say rabbits are good breeders!

It’s also been time to cutesie up the little ones in the family…….

Poor ol’ Ralphy has been long overdue for a haircut……he slips on the tile floors as he runs due to the overgrown hair between the pads on his feet and can barely see out of his eyes, but I’ve been reluctant due to the colder weather.  However, his sluggish behaviour tells me it’s time (and the fact we’ve had our one week of winter so it’s already over, red rover!)….

It took me a good couple of hours and you can see I got covered in as much hair as came off the pooch!……I was able to fill a shopping bag 3/4 full of his wool……..and yes, it is a bit like shearing a sheep, not that I’ve done that before, but I’ve watched enough tv programs to know…..

But it was well worth it……look at my proud boy now……

Ready and raring to go…….

he wore himself out, once he was ‘hairless’ and took himself to bed….what a cutie!

Yep, with or without hair, some little bunny loves you!

Sugary hugs xox :o)

Awww...he is just so darn cute...can't believe you do it yourself! I have my cat shaved every three months, but I take him to the groomers. They tell me he is perfectly behaved and wish they had more kitty customers just like him. Perfect little bunnies!

Oh wow. Your pooch looks like a different body. He is cute. Those bunnies are breeding.....

Maria said...

Ralph's does look handsome after his haircut..

Raewyn said...

Love those little bunnies - very cute! Ralph will be so much more comfortable now. Our poodle-x pooch is needing a haircut too - but i've been unsure because of the weather - I end up like you with fluff everywhere, too!

HI Wendy,
Looking forward to seeing the new look evolve.

I can't believe that is the same dog & is he really small, or do you have massive tennis balls at your house?

Tammy said...

Bloggy newness looks great...Wow that was a ton of puppy fur ...Kinda like a diet plan he lost weight and got a new hair do at the same time...And poor you did all the work and had to clean it all up..I think he got the better end of the deal.

You're new look blog looks wonderful Wendy. I've been toying around with updating mine too but never seem to find the time. Maybe I'll have a go next week. See you on Friday for FNSI. Cheers, Tracy x

Our similar looking dog also needs a haircut - and like you I've been putting it off so he doesn't get a cold snap..we have had a bit of winter this year (nice for a change)...
