visits her cousin Rosie Rabbit and brings a basket of pink primroses and her teddy-bear!

'Morning Molly' 'Morning Rosie'

‘Morning Molly’ said Rosie Rabbit.  ‘Morning Rosie’ said Molly Rabbit.

'Lovely to see you, my dear. Keeping well?'

‘Lovely to see you, my dear. Keeping well?’

'Mustn't grumble. What do you think of my new boots?'

‘Mustn’t grumble. What do you think of my new boots?’

Molly Rabbit spent a lot of time, yesterday, being most particular about the little flowers that just HAD to be embroidered onto her booties!

'Now, my dear, sit up nicely - one for the family album'

‘Now, my dear, sit up nicely – one for the family album’

 

'What's that? Speak up a bit, dear'

‘What’s that? Speak up a bit, dear’

 

'Of course you can try on my hat!  That ear of yours is just so floppy!'

‘Of course you can try on my hat! That ear of yours is just so floppy!’

'Oh you do look a picture, Rosie - love that hat. Would you like one too?'

‘Oh you do look a picture, Rosie – love that hat. Would you like one too?’

I think Mollie and Rosie are going to have some adventures together.  They’re a rather old-fashioned prim pair of bunnies.

It’s definitely hat-wearing weather here in the UK at the moment – easterly winds from way up north are fit to blow your ears off (if you’re a bunny)!  I think I’d better make Miss Rosie a hat to keep her warm.

Meet Molly Rabbit …

Molly can knit!  She's busy making herself a cardigan1

She’s also quite shy and has her very own little teddy-bear!  Earlier on today I found her rummaging in my button box for a tiny button for her cardigan.  She’s very particular and doesn’t want to be seen until her outfit is finished.  She caused such a fuss about her boots – first the laces had to be a different colour from Rosie Rabbit’s and then – well, you’ll have to wait and see!

In the meantime, I’ve been enjoying a bit of fuss and here are some photos that I took yesterday evening …

Do you like the card from Flora (for Mother Duck’s Day) – it’s over on the right of the photo above and I think Daddy Duck did really well to find that one!

I’m working very hard to stay calm and quiet.  There really isn’t any better therapy than hand-sewing and knitting tiny clothes for the bunnies!  I have to step off the merry-go-round so that I can be ready for a bumpy ride when my beloved man is in hospital at the end of this week.

Many, many thanks to so many of you for your good wishes.  Please keep everything crossed for us. I hope to pop back with some photos of Molly in the next day or so.
