Winter has officially ended across the northern hemisphere with the 20th March marking the first day of the new season. Officially known as the vernal equinox, the start of Spring is one of two equinoxes to happen each year. The second occurs in the Autumn, on the 22nd September 2017. Spring indicates a returning to warmer weather and a longer period of daylight in the northern hemisphere…..although the wind today has a little bit of a bite to it, I think……brisk one might say!
The onset of spring means that the daffodils are in full bloom, and the shops are selling egg shaped chocolate. For me it’s all about the bunnies….I love rabbits. I’m not sure why really, as my experience of them is all but limited to a terrifying few weeks of looking after a rabbit, that had apparently special forces training but was using their skills for evil!
Nonetheless, I love them. Their soft ears and beautiful twitching noses and whiskers, meant I just had to make some….
And so Merryweather & Earl the rabbits were born. These cute rabbits are probably one of my most popular patterns now…..and I have to say, I am quite proud of them.
And when you like something…..you just have to make them in different colours 🙂
With ‘rabbits’ in mind……I will wish you a very ‘Hoppy Spring’ !!
