Blush Bunnies

Blush Bunny: a Van Gogh inspired blend

This is going to be a short blog …Last night I saw that Jazz our bunny dog was a bit listless and blamed the stupid hot weather but when I looked closer I discovered her neck was really swollen…not Im off to the vet with her to have it checked out this morning. Fingers crossed our little baby is going to be okay.

Apart from rushing off on a friday which is so unlike that I am and have been ofcourse super super busy with all the prep work for the Bothwell ! Mountains of dyeing have been done and there’s still a couple of mountains to do including lots of new exciting stuff that will be introduced for the first time at Bothwell ! Very exciting indeed! Anyway better get the doggie to the vet and this blog update happening.

On offer on this weeks shopblog is a new Blush blend! YUM!!!! It is a blue faced Leicester based version of my Lush Tops: soft Blue faced leicester fibres are dancing with some super soft angora and cashmere with some added tencel to give it that lustre and starry starry night shine ! and yes….the bunny on the label is a Van Gigh inspired one ..couldn’t help myself since the Luch tops show the “bunny with the pearl earring..Enjoy !
