wee bit tired lately

Between vaccinations last week, the beginning of teething, and rearranging our schedule in preparation for Mr Mitten going back to work, I've been a wee bit tired this past week. I didn't feel much like whining, and I haven't done much work anyway, so there wasn't a whole lot to blog about. Anyway, thanks so much for your lovely comments on the video and photos! It's fun sharing a bit of our lives with you, especially since we don't have many friends with kids with whom to commiserate.


One thing I did manage to get done, after about 2 weeks of squeezing in an hour of knitting here and there, was this big bunny. I wasn't quite sure I liked her when she was done, but she zipped out of my shop so fast, I was clearly mistaken about her cuteness! I know some of you will ask about her dress, so I'll tell you what I can. I've had some thoughts about putting together a bundle of clothes for the bigger toys, so this was a trial at one dress design. It was a bit too complicated, though. The final version will have a simpler skirt, but should be just as cute. The bundle I'm planning will have 3 designs: a dress, a cardigan, and something else. Anyone care to leave a comment about what they'd like? There's no set date for when I'll get it ready, considering how much we have going on the next few weeks.

How about a bunny hat with a brim (she looks so springy!) or some little booties?

Aww, your bunny is adorable! I love her dress and her cute pose for the camera.

I like Allison's idea of a brimmed hat or some cute little shoes. Mary Janes?

This might be silly, but since you asked...a sundress or two would be fun. I'm thinking of dressing the bunny and then scaling up the dress for a certain little bunny lover I know. Also, small accessories like a beach bag would be interesting.

some boots to go with the dress lol or maybe a winter coat with a hand muff

She is so cute, I think a hat and a handbag would be very cute! How about an apron??

Oh, because it's going to feel like summer in my neck of the woods, how about a bathing suit -- the old fashioned kind -- a one piecer with a ruffled skirt for demure girls? She could even hold a knitted towel or an umbrella.

I'll send warm weather your way to enlighten you. Thanks for such a sweetie!
