I'm So Happy About My New Friends!



March 5, 2012


Hello, Primmies,

It's finally time for me to have a giveaway. I've been so blessed with the giveaways I've won, and I have received so much support and friendship from my followers that I want to give some of that back. I am still stitching the Polly Daggett sampler and it will be a giveaway here soon.  It's just that I loved making the rabbit "Miss Peabody" by Kim Grasso from the March/April 2012 issue of Create and Decorate magazine so much that I couldn't put it down. So, here she is!

She's super grungy and made with a few differences from the pattern instructions. I made her out of cream flannel instead of osnaburg fabric, her dress is a red and cream plaid homespun with little hearts instead of strawberries, and her seams are right side out on her body and her clothing. She's so grubby because she's been out in the yard digging for carrots. She's mad because we don't have a garden and says she hopes that in her adopted home there is a garden for her. Geeesh, pushy isn't she?
She's wearing bloomers from antique linen that was soft cream and now coffee stained. She has button eyes, a rusty cut nail for a nose and a twig mouth. I decided not to give her an apron. She has a rusty tin tag that I've signed for you. It has a repro vintage Coats & Clark ad image on it. She's signed and dated on her bum.

You do not have to put this on your sidebar or Facebook page. I'm not trying to recruit new followers. Just let me know that you'd like to adopt her, that's all. I'll choose a home for her on Thursday,
 March 8, 2012. She's anxious to leave because she
doesn't like cats and she's hiding in the armoire until she travels. 

Thank you all for being such wonderful friends and followers.

Oh Miss Peabody would have an amazing thyme here in the garden. You see we have plenty of carrots to dig, and lots of flowers that need to be watered here in sunny California. She would be busy year round. Our weather is so sunny and warm, we have fours seasons of gardens.You have done a wonderful job on her and I would love to care for her. Thank you for adding me to your generous giveaway. Blessings ~Sara

Oh My Gosh!!! Miss Peabody is just the sweetest little bunny ever. We have a huge garden that she can dig in to her little hearts content and no kitties. Alas, I am alergic to sweet kittens. I know the adoption process is a serious thing but I am sure she would be happy here at the Farm.

Thanks, Susan, for a chance to win your adorable Miss Peabody! She is perfect in every way!

hugs and smiles,

Oh my gosh Susan. She is so beautiful. I can't believe you are going to give her away. I would die if she flew to my home. I love her so much. Thanks for a special giveaway. It has been fun blogging with you.

Richard Healey said...

She is pretty. I would love to have it in my home.


Hi Susan, don't know how I almost missed this one. Please enter me. I have no pets so she would be very happy if she lived with me. I will also put on my sidebar. Thanks, Cyndy

Cynthia Laube said...

I love that not only the content but the style of your blog is constantly changing, I gives me alot to aspire to. Your bunny is precicious and would look awesome in one of my wreaths. I am starting work (inspired by Cyndy Weeks)on my own style of prim bunnies and dolls in lighter pastels but more prim and less country.
I'll be learning techniques from you! TX Cynthia

Heather said...

Susan~ Your Miss Peabody is just adorable..I love her attitude :0)
She would love it at the Hudson House..lots of gardens..and we all get dirty digging in the yard!! You did an awesome job with her!!

Karen/My Colonial Home said...

Morning Susan...well goodness I just looked and it's almost noon here.
I love your new creation - who wouldn't want this sweet gal in their home for Easter and Spring...
She's one PRIM & Proper lady sitting there with her legs sweet.
Blessing and good luck to everyone.
