Finally raggie bunny got finished and her photo's taken! Yesterday and today I have been busy, busy playing with the dye pot and came up with 8 pieces of colourful dyed mohair phew! In between all this I managed to bake some very yummy chocalate muffins. Not all my own work as I had help from a box of Betty Crocker - she's good!!

Well, another colourful creation is ready for you all to see - really liked working with these colours as I think they are warm and welcoming touchy touchy and make the bear have that soft cuddly look. I left that long and straight track (was a little bumpy!) for a short time and did something completely different - well, for me anyway and came up with a bunny. Think it could do with a bit more colour:o)) Maybe bunny 2 will be a bit more colourful - got to have colour I say!

Making up for lost bear time.....

This is what happens when you take a few days off - you have to play this silly game called 'catch up' and that is just what I have been doing and the result is another colourful bear who goes by the name of 'Saffron' and will be making her appearance very soon on my site. I have a bunny which is very nearly finished but the poor thing is in need of a nose and maybe a carrot or two!
Saffron has now been ADOPTED.

Our trip to the big smoke.......

Blue Mountains
We have just come back from a visit to Sydney where we spent sometime with Samantha (daughter) and Tony who at the moment are living in Leichhardt. We had a really good time and it was nice that I was able to take the girls with us. All very strange for them being that they are country dogs but they settled into it quite well. On the Sunday morning we took them for a walk around the doggie park which was nearby and which also has a doggie café - my two were a bit stunned at seeing so many dogs in all shapes and sizes and for once Amy kept her mouth shut and her Bull Terrier put away! Little dog who thinks she is a big dog and can take on anything attitude - you know what I am meaning. She's not too bad thank goodness and hasn't got herself into trouble and we don't take her seriously and neither do others especially other dogs thank goodness!
Took a trip up to the Blue Mountains and saw the 3 sisters and all I can say is WOW! it is so vast and the thought of getting lost out there just doesn't bear thinking about!

I decided the girl's needed new harnesses for their trip to Sydney - got to show how smart us country girl's can be plus the one Amy wears at the moment has been making sore spots just by her elbow. Anyway, I found these really smart ones in a salmon pink stripes - very chic in a vest style harnesses so I bought one for Millie and one for Amy.

It was great to have a break and looking forward to the next one but now it is back to work in the bear making department as well as the raggy's. I'm working on an elephant at the moment which I actually took with me but the poor thing never saw the light of day!
