Remember: They can be picked up at the market where I will be tomorrow (arts Centre in Melbourne) or I can send them to you by mail. Let me know quick by email so I can reserve them for you....the angorino tops have a tendency to be adopted to good homes really fast! lol

Spot the Bunny!
Hmmmm very nice wheat and Dandelion!
This is the little one we saved out of Jasmines' litter. It has got a gorgeous silver grey coat and a white spot on the top of its head!
Hello! Can I come and play?
More bunny photos are coming soon!NEW !!!! Haramaki range now available !
Okay, what is a Haramaki? it is a belly/kidney/back warmer, that can also be used as a top, headband, belt and scarf! It is amazing to wear it , especially over cropped pants to keep your bare bits warm and it is extremely fashionable at the same time! I just finished making several ones in small, medium, large and extra large (to fit perfectly over pregnant tummies!) Colour range varies from dark blue/brown, fern green/blue, dusky pinks, purples and reds. More colours coming soon! I use alpaca, bunny, merino and silk boucle fibres, but more fibres are constantly added to the list!
Prices are AU$60 and every Haramaki is handmade by Ixchelbunny. I am taking orders at the moment so please let me know in what colours you are interested. You can contact me by email or message me at the Ravelry site as well.

All four bunnies are growing like cabbages and I will post some photos of them this week when they are playing and hopping around ! they do not want to stay in their nestbox anymore and instead are hopping all over their mum and getting into her food, having a nibble here and there! Eowin is very patient with them and they get lots of nice bunny kisses from her..sooooo cute!
Better hop 2 it ...lol and do some more work! See you at the markets or on line!
