Ridiculously tiny

I’ve been on an unsuccessful bunny buy two weekends in a row. It’s not good for the soul. Today, the world tried to make it up to me, by having this ridiculously tiny chap appear in my garden. He’s having lunch by the path under my window.

It’s not usually that weedy, but that’s where Mama Partridge decided to build nest number two, amidst the pampas-type grass, so I’ve not been able to weed it for three weeks. (Seriously? Best excuse ever.)

For a sense of perspective at how Ridiculously Tiny it is, how about atop a standard sized brick…

Pretty tiny.

I was creatively inspired….a brooch maybe? Or a key chain if done in thicker wire? Pretty happy with it, for a prototype.

Thanks, little chap.

Not the bunny I’d planned….

I thought this weekend’s post would be introducing you to our new addition…but it’s just not felt like right time to see if there’s a bunny out there with my name on him/her. I’m a little worried that the longer I leave it, the less right it will feel, but I’m trusting in kismet. Or trying to.

However, I do have a little chap to show you, courtesy of my newest follower, The Green Dragonfly, and you can follow her excellent tutorial here – https://thegreendragonfly.wordpress.com/2013/03/05/nibble-nibble-hop-hop/

I’m relatively new to crochet but am pretty pleased with my efforts…tho I had to make do with google eyes!

What I am thinking about, is that I could adapt it as a crochet wirework brooch….hmmmm.

What’s everyone else up to?

(Ps – still no baby partridges….but the eggs are moving!!)
