Friday the 13th ~ good or bad?

** GOOD **
 Mr. Postie rang the doorbell just before lunchtime and delivered some packages ~ a chart and some threads from the SewandSo sale, a couple of craft books from Amazon which were not due to arrive until middle of next week YIPEE!, 3 gorgeous charts I just couldn't resist buying from Sally but ... hold on ... another package? ... an unexpected one!

Ummmm?  Fragile? Glass?
Ahhh! I recognise that name on the back ..... Barb  ~ I know this is going to be ** GOOD **
Just look at this . . .

a handcrafted glass and lead bunny

 Barb said she had asked her better half to make me a lop-ear bunny to remind me of Buttons and this he successfully did just before Christmas but then ..... wait for it ...... he dropped it ~ ahhhhhh :(  so this is his second bunny and isn't it just gorgeous?  I have it hanging from my study window where the sun shines most of the day and the colour and light reflection is just beautiful.
I've given Barb strict instructions to spoil her DH rotten on my behalf so I'm hoping that as you read this he is sitting comfy and warm in his favourite chair in his favourite slippers with relentless cups of tea and coffee regularly coming his way!!!

Barb also included this cute chart by The Victoria Sampler of a bunny with a bunch of mistletoe carrots above his head, it did make me giggle, I've never seen it before and I love it!
Thank you to both of you for making Friday 13th a very ** GOOD ** and lucky day for me ~ your kindness means everything to me and your gifts will be treasured always xxx

Now, talking of Bunnies!  Remember a couple of posts ago my photo of Tilly and Oscar's new wicker house?  At that time they had already started their refurbishing project
this is really taking it a bit too far!!!
By the end of this week I reckon I will have 2 homeless bundles of furry fun!

And finally .... shoes on, I have my first Happy Dance of 2012 to celebrate with you . . .

'Such Delight' by Homespun Elegance stitched on 30-ct 'Irish Creme' R&R Linen with Gentle Art and Weeks threads

I'm so pleased to have at least one completion under my belt and I can transfer this design from the 'Stash to Stitch' list to the '2012 Happy Dance' list but as I transfer one, this week has seen another 5 added on ~ OUCH!
I'm stitching a little 'can't reveal yet' design this weekend and then it's back to the Winter/Christmas list ~ trouble is there are so many on the list, I can't decide which to do next!

Thanks for stopping by
