Look, A Contest !!!
One of the first blogs I followed when I began blogging was Rachael Rabbit. I was so impressed with her talent that it took a while for me to work up the courage to leave a comment.
At first, of course, I was attracted by her soft toys.
I collect soft toys and I love making them, so her blog was a joy to browse thru and gather inspiration.
She knits and crochets, but she also creates masterpieces on the sewing machine.
Look at this beautiful quilt she did for a babies room. It's based on the book 'The Little Engine That Could'. I am so impressed with this piece!
Besides baby stuff like this little blanket, she does clothes and accessories. This girl can do it all. But for the past year she only blogged now and then and though she continued to do some crafting, her production was down. There's a good reason for that.
This baby bunny has been keeping her pretty busy.
But Rachael Rabbit is back and she has a contest running on her blog.
Remember these stackable cats?
I knit these last year for my niece.
They were soon joined by this pile of pups.
They became a raffle prize at a dog show.
My next project from the same designer will be these hanging bats. Aren't they cute. They will stay here with me.
I love her designs so much that I'm planning on knitting the tub of bubbles after the bats. Who is this designer? Her name is Anna Hrachovec and her designs called Mochi Mochi are found here. She has a new book out with some new designs.
If you would like to win a copy of this book that has instructions for 20 cute little creatures, just pay a visit to Rachael Rabbit and leave a comment on which Mochi Mochi design you like best. It's that easy.
