Are you tired of hearing about my knitted bunny dress yet? Well, luckily for us both, I'm done. :-) I actually need to block it as the bottom hem curls UP.. but I had to take some photos first. I also must admit, I cheated.. the neckline was very loose on her, so I took some of the pink/lavender Stylecraft DK, threaded it on a needle and sewed it through the top of the neckline and pulled it tight around her neck, tied a bow in the back, then hid it down in her dress. :-) But I'm very happy with the results!! I think Miss Maggie Maria looks quite fetching in her dress over her cotton dress. I got the dress knit pattern from Alicia Paulson and also the Bunny Kit - click HERE to visit her website.Last evening after I was finally done I took MMM out to the pond for a fashion shoot. She's a very willing model.
Now.. I'm thinking there needs to be a bit more embellishment.. just like me to want to do a bit more. I told hubby, Mr. Fashionista, that I wanted to make a tiny pearl necklace for her and he said, "That would be a bit much for a peasant looking bunny". PEASANT? Excuse me??? I have these small freshwater pearls... we'll see. AND... I also thought her dress would improve with a tiny fuchsia colored crocheted flower off to the left of the waistline.. what do you think?
We're having another sunny day here.. how about you?
Yesterday Dayle did some mowing of the pasture with his beloved Kubota tractor and tried to get the burn pile lit.. it didn't burn too well. Buddy wanted to go see what his dad was up to and wee wee wee-ed until I took him out there. That's him digging for moles.Our healthy eating and smaller portions regimen has worked - Dayle has lost 7 lbs and I've lost 18 lbs. Today I'm heading back to the pool to add exercise into the equation. I haven't been swimming for a few months.. shame on me.Tomorrow I have a lunch date with my 2 sisters and sister Shirley. Thursday we're going with the volunteers at the falls on the Mt. Hood Railroad trip up to Parkdale. We're taking Kristi and the 2 littlies. The bigger boys still have school. I hope you have a fun week ahead of you. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
