Run Rabbit

So, I seem to have had a rabbit themed crafting week. My first project was a bag that I’ve made from some op-shop finds – a tea towel and a pillowcase. This particular project cost a grand total of…… $1. And not only did I get a bag from it, but I also managed to make a bow and a flower to dress it up a bit. Bargain!

My next project was another craft hoop. I found this terribly cute rabbit stencil and just had to use it on something. I’m also loving this polka-dot fabric that I’ve found (another op-shop conquest). It has an almost Alice In Wonderland theme type thing happening, which works for me.

Speaking of rabbits, one of the funniest things I’ve seen while I’ve been here was when I was driving back from Stanley. On the side of the road was a rooster going absolutely apoplectic at something – lots of wing flapping and squawking. I assumed it would be a chicken that would be the target of it’s ire, but no. It was a rabbit. This rabbit had the literal caught in the headlights look, and was darting from side to side, trying to figure out what the hell was going on. I haven’t laughed that hard for a while.

I’ve been in the good old apple isle for a month now, and I have to say that I love it here. I’ve acclimatized quite well (I’ve always been a girl for layering up), I’ve met some awesome people, and I don’t even blink at the really bad ads on TV any more. Well ok, maybe I still do with a couple. But they’re so bad! I’ve never seen so many home-recorded things on TV that feature bogans. Otherwise, this place is great. There’s fabulous scenery wherever you go, plenty of wildlife (although some of it may have anger issues), a plethora of op-shops, and some great cafes. I’ve finally come home.
