Life is like a box of chocolates....
I spend a lot of time these days just watching and being around the baby bunnies of Topping and Mojo. Toppings babies are just so adorably cute and chocolaty..lol...just like a little box of TimTams when they are huddled snuggly together. The 5 surviving kits of Topping look absolutely fabulous with 4 dark chocolate TimTam colours and one very rare caramel coloured kit or I think it will be a so called LYNX (that's a colour not an animal in this case, although stranger things have happened...lol). Lynx is a colour that is light tan ticked with Lilac tipped hairs . Too soon to tell if it is a lynx or a copper agouti. Mojos babies are doing extremely well , growing very fast! and the REW (red eyed white) called Babe is the leader of the pack! After that is Dash, who loves to sit IN the foodbowl and munch away on the rabbit mix I put in the big cage (seeds, a little bit of pellets, lots of greens and cereals). It won't be long til they have to move into a bigger cage together with mum and have more room to hop and play :) Here are some photos of the little ones but if you want to see more just hop to my photostream on flickr : www.flickr.com/photos/ixchelbunny.

This week has been full on ofcourse with the terrible loss of Eowin , trying to cope with that and a humongous cold/flu I have been battling with.....bunny flu no doubt....lol. I did get some dyeing done , just because I HAD TO!!! : that's what happens when you are addicted to fibre and playing with colours I guess. Anything can happen , but don;t take my dyepot and fibre away from me....lol So below you can see some very nice nice fluffy warm fibres and yarns to spin and knit or felt with!
