Good afternoon everyone!

I have to start with another very big Thank You to those kind friends that left me further messages of support and good wishes for my two biopsy results ~ I am pleased to say that both are benign and my worst fears have been taken away, unfortunately I am still in pain and will now undergo MRI scans for further investigations.  I'm hoping the month of May will bring much brighter days for my family and I, certainly the first 4 months of 2012 have been horrible!

So, what have I been up to?  Well, my mood is still pretty low and I haven't picked my cross stitching up since my last post, I'm sure my mojo will return but I think, like me, for now it needs a short holiday to perk up again.  But I haven't been completely idle ~ the knitting needles have seen daylight instead and this is what several nights of clicking have to show . . .

'Basil' Bunny
knitted in Sirdar Eco DK Wool

complete with bob tail

felt pads for his feet

and a hoody to give him a bit of street credit !

A small heart button on his hoody and there he is . . . . cute!

and this 'Basil' will hopefully last a little longer than the potted ones outside ~ I wonder which two little furries would be the culprits of that???

Thanks for stopping by

I'm so relieved to hear you received good biopsy results, Jane, but I'm sorry to hear the pain is still with you. No wonder you are a bit "down."
I do hope the remainder of the year brings better days...

Your bunny is so, so darling--I love his color and his little hoody--so sweet!!

Take care now...

Hazel said...

Dear Jane, I have been so wrapped up in my own probs of late, I didn't realise you were going for tests. I am so pleased they have come through negative for you. Hope the pain subsides soon. I adore your bunny. He is gorgeous. Love him. xx

Your bunny is too, too cute! I do hope you'll heal and feel more like yourself in time. So glad the biopsy results were in your favor!

Catherine said...

What a relief your results must be. Sorry to hear the pain is still there ~ hopefully you can find some relief soon.
Your bunny is absolutely adorable!!

Valma said...

Wooohoo ! Basil is absolutely wonderful =D
I love
I sincerely wish you that May brings relief
even if the results are good (I'm happy to learn that) as soon as you have pain there's something somewhere that must be discovered :-/
be confident, sure you'll be better soon and the rest of the year will bring you brighter days
take care
hugs from France

Oh thank goodness...benign is my favourite word! I am so glad you got good results and hopefully now you are in the system they can find out what is wrong and put it right. Basil is gorgeous...absolutely brilliant.

Deb said...

Oh Jane, your bunny is just too sweet! I hope that your stitching mojo comes back, but you certainly made good use of your time knitting. So sweet.

Stitching Noni said...

Your results are very good news! Hopefully they will discover the source of the pain soon & you will start feeling better. Good luck with the MRI.
Basil is a real delight! I love his little bob tail & his hoody gives him great street cred! Well done ;0). Maybe he should stand guard over the basil pots!!!

Maggee said...

Basil is not cute--he is absolutely adorable!! Great job! Knitted? Wow--what talent!! Glad to hear the tests were benign! Hugs to you all!

Kath said...

Oh I hope that little bunny gives you your mojo back, and sorry to hear that you have been under the weather.

I just love your bunny, and his hoodie.... you have made a great jo of making Basil.

Sarah said...

I'm so glad and thankful that your results were good Jane. It's sad to hear you're still in pain, I hope you find a solution soon.

Your bunny is absolutely gorgeous, what a sweetie

Lesleyanne said...

I am so pleased to hear your biopsy results came back clear Jane. I hope they get to the cause of the pain soon. Your bunny is absolutely adorable.

Myra said...

Jane, I am so happy to hear your biopsy was benign but sorry you are still in pain. I do hope you get some relief soon and the rest of this year is better for you.

That is about the sweetest bunny I have ever seen. (Other than your two fluffy ones of course.) I just love how his little tail peeks out from underneath his hoodie.

Penny said...

Wonderful news on the biopsy results. I'm sorry to hear you are still in pain. I hope you are feeling better soon. I don't know if I have ever seen anything cuter than your Basil bunny. :)

Lorna Appleby said...

I have it on good authority (Miss Sage Bunny, RIP) that rubbing bunny feet doesn't bring good luck, its the feeding of treats to bunnies that causes good things to happen. The ultimate in good karma and all that. So, obviously, all good things happen because of your bunnies and they deserve extra treats. (Phew. How was that guys? Think she'll buy it?)

Less silly-Lorna, I am very happy to hear the good news.. and sorry to hear about the pain. I know what a weight it can be. Hopefully it gets sorted out quick. (What, guys? Oh..) I hear craisins and blueberries bring quick answers. (Lets hope she doesn't ask my source!)

Now, about Basil.. do we have a pattern? I'm not that skilled a knitter, but I'd like to give him a go.. :)

Lois said...

Jane, what a time of it you've been having lately. I'm glad to hear the biopsy was able to put your mind at rest and I hope all goes with your MRI scan.

I have to tell you, Basil is just the cutest rabbit!!! His little bob tail just made me smile when I scrolled down to that picture and I love his little hoodie.

Take care.

Shirlee said...

Jane ... Praise God that your biopsies were benign! I love the bunny you knitted! He is adorable!

Loraine said...

This bunny is darling! You are so full of talent.
I am grateful to hear that you biopsy's went well, but I'm so sorry to read about your dad, and MIL. What a worry it must be for you. Enjoy your time with them, and pray that God can give you peace at this difficult time.
Hope you have a great weekend.

Brook said...

I have just found your blog. I too LOVE BUNNIES.
I have also been where you are medically, I am mainly a quilter, but in times of stress or exhaustion I turn to knitting. Reading your blog felt like a sameness.
I am in Southern California, a retired teacher.
Your knitted bunny basil is the cutest and his hoodie.

Is this a pattern on the open market, where I could purchase it. Take Care, Blessings, Brook

Sally said...

Oh Jane I am so glad that your results from your biopsy were good. I do hope they can find out what is causing your pain {{{{hugs}}}}

Love Basil! He is so cute.
