Meet Lulu

Introducing Lulu, a very stylish bunny.


She and her wardrobe (and work) have been keeping me busy for the past few weeks. She came from the pattern by Julie Williams, called “Bunny Girl in Dotty Dress” and is headed to a silent auction fundraiser for The Casey Young Foundation on April 5th.

She was a lot of fun to knit and only a deadline stopped me from knitting more dresses from her dress pattern collection, “Seasonal Dresses” .

Every bunny needs a place to store her dresses and a cozy spot to rest between tea parties. Lulu has a custom painted wooden box lined with original printed fabric.Bunny_box

Lulu and her fabulous wardrobe can be yours!
On Saturday, April 5th, she will be up for a silent auction at a wonderful event in Brooklyn, NY to raise money for “The Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood Program”. You can purchase tickets for the event here.

I hope you can make it to the fun event, and good luck with the bidding!

Counting Sheep

I couldn’t resist creating a design for Spoonflower’s latest Design of the Week contest, “Bedtime”. I have a rather checkered history with sleep – I’ve watched more than my share of infomercials, long-syndicated tv shows and forgotten movies while the rest of the world is dreaming – so my motif came to me pretty quickly.

As it turns out, I was not the only designer who used sheep in my design entry, there must be a lot of insomniacs out there. Although there are several sheep designs, it’s interesting to see how different each one is and to see what other designers are doing on Spoonflower.

To vote for my design, or any others that you like, go to and find my design “Counting Sheep”.

The winner will be announced next Thursday afternoon.

I’m off to take a nap.
