Easter Hare up for grabs !!!

Well I've been so overwhelmed here in blog land after Lucy @ attic 24 posted about one of my Hares she had in her Easter display. I have decided  that because of this and all the wonderful comments left  I would give my last Hare away in a little competition. All you have to do is leave a comment in which you give this lovely Hare a name . I will put all the names in a hat and one of my boys will get to pick the winner !! I will let this run for a week to give anyone who's interested chance to enter. She can be seen here in this line up and is the first on the left .
Now Easter has come and gone , it's back to happily stitching and getting back into the swing of making .So here's a peek at what stitchery has been going on !!!




The last two shots are of me this evening making the most of the light coming through the velux windows in our bedroom as the light lower down the house had faded fast . OOhhh how I long for the long light summer evenings , when I can sew until I'm ready to fall asleep !! But at the moment when the light has gone I always have my crochet and knitting to fall back on .

  1. How exciting she's a lovely Hare the name I would give her is Tallyboo.

  4. That tree looks stunning - you must have so much patience to sew all those leaves on! I would love a hare and would call her Bunnykins (although she is obviously a hare, I just like the name!!!) x

  5. I think she should be called Blossom because of her nice pink jumper (a lovely flower color) and the sweet flowers on her knickers. I'd love to give her a home here in the USA! Your hares are really darling, thanks for sharing!

  11. I have just gone for a walk and though how lovely it would be to have time to sew, at the moment life seems to be work and course work!! I am so please you have had such a wonderful response to Lucy's post. You really deserve it.

    I think I would have to call her Daphne after one of the residents who we have just lost, she'd have loved her!!

    Have a lovely Thursday.

    (think I need to pre- book a spotty legged hare next time you make one please, no rush)

  15. Your work looks absolutely fantastic, you are one talented lady! If i were to name her i would have to pick florrie x x x Hope you have a good week, I have just finished a 4 day craft exhibition so am having a little break from crafting - which probably won't last long : ) x

    ReplyDelete
  16. You cushions look like a painstaking job. All those little pieces to sew. They really are a work of art. Lovely!

    Hmmm...hare names...we already have Buzzy the bunny in our garden (resin ornament thingy). Maybe Henrietta the hare? Or Twiggles....those tangled whiskers make her look like she is plotting some mischief!

  17. I'd call her BONITA. It means pretty/attractive. Thanks for the chance to win a hare.

  20. So pleased I returned to sign up to follow your blog as now I can enter for the Easter Hare giveaway! My non crafting DD in Germany sent me the link to your blog and I spent a lovely time earlier browsing all the lovelies you have made of late. Great inspiration.

  25. Hip Hop Hooray! I found your site via Attic 24, who I also only recently discovered. I just LOVE your work and would be so happy for the chance to adopt one of your rabbits. She would have a good home here and would be well looked after and much loved. I love all the other name suggestions, but for some reason the name Harriet immediately hopped into my head for her?!?! Thanks for the chance and all the best xx

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love your hares and your blog which I found thanks to Lucy.

    I would call your lovely hare Boo.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I so would like to own this gorgeous creation and I would call her Petunia. You do realise what a roaring success they will be on Etsy and I will place my order. Petunia will sit in perfectly with my bedroom decor.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oops, just noticed that someone else has named her Harriet too--she must definitely suit that name! And, sorry, I called her a rabbit when she is of course a hare xx

    ReplyDelete
  29. She is lovely, I would call her Harriet Harebella.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love the hares - I would call mine 'Canela' (which is cinnamon in Spanish)

  31. Very cute, and looks like an Erin to me! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Ooooo, how lucky someone is going to be. To me she looks like a Sweet Annie. Thanks for your generosity.
    Smiles, DianeM :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I would call her 'sweet pea' as she looks so pretty and delicately made.

    Fingers crossed!!

    Fleur xx

    ReplyDelete
  34. I think her name should be Fleur. Great blog.

    ReplyDelete
  35. She is lovely and we think she would like to be known as Eleanor Hopkins (Ellie for short).Debby.x

    ReplyDelete
  36. She's fab and deserves the name Petal

    ReplyDelete
  37. Your hares are so charming. Great work! I would call her Lilly.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I would call her Violet. I love your blog and your work - found via Attic24.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I think she looks like a Harriet. I looked up the meaning of the name and it means 'Keeper of the hearth' and 'Rules her household'. I thought it would therefore be very fitting for her to sit on the mantelpiece and keep and eye on the world of the lucky person who gets to give her a new home! I think your work is very inspiring and I too came to it through the Attic24 blog.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I think she would be a Mignonette - she looks very sophisticated and chic. Your stitching is lovely - I love your tree.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh, My goodness! I may well lose sleep over the prospect of winning one of your hares!!! I think if she were mine (and she would be, as I have 5 little boys who may not appreciate fully her prettiness), I would call her Bluebell.
    I used to have a rabbit - who I loved to bits, but during the Great Storm, his hutch was blown over and he ran away. I like to think he has many descendants now hopping around the fields of Sussex! He was called Boppity!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I would love this little one to come and live with me so thank you for the chance.
    I would name her Poppy if she had no objections to the name :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Of course 'Hare-riet'! (Harriet) Very sweet bunnies.
    I made a rabbit doll once with ceramic head and feet and soft body and dressed her in a hareem outfit. She was ScHAREizode. There were more along that line but I better quit. lol Helen

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'll try this again. If it came through on the first one, sorry for the second message.
    I think "Hare-riet" (Harriet). I name a hareem dressed bunny I made once ScHAREizod. There was also a feline named CleoCATra in an Egyptian dress. lol Helen Sweet Bunnies.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Love your bunch of hares! Adorable! How about Dottie for a hare name? Thanks so much1

    ReplyDelete
  46. I think she's lovely and I would call her PETAL :)

  47. I think she should be a Jubilee Hare and be called Julia Jubilee. They really are lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Hello
    Like lots of other people I found your blog after reading about you on Attic24 - I love the things you make, very inspiring!
    I would call the hare Hester - I think there's a hare called Hester in Phillip Pullman's Northern Lights books - I would give her a happy home!

    ReplyDelete
  49. In her pink jumper, I believe the name Rosamunde suits her. Rosamunde Cordelia Hare. Now that could be a fitting name for her! She's so lovely as are all the hares you've made! All the luck to everyone in the drawing! Happy Easter! Elizabeth Hansen, Chester County, PA, USA

    ReplyDelete
  50. I think you should call here Daisy :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Lovely hares!! I would call her Dotty as she looks a bit ditzy (in a cute lovable way!)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Lucy at Attic 24 guided me to your website...I am fairly new to crochet and have recently started sewing again now my girls are a little older and I have some free time. I would love the hare for me (not my daughters!) as she is stunning. I don't suppose you'd write a pattern for her would you?
    Anyway, the name that immediately came to mind was Blossom Rose - a good spring name and Rose for the colour of her gorgeous jumper! Fingers crossed she can come home to our house...

    ReplyDelete
  53. I think she looks like an Eleanor. :)
    Love your hares!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Hortense Hare - she is very pretty and I know a small person who would just love her!

  93. She looks like an Esther to me :)

    ReplyDelete
  94. She looks like a bunny-about-the-world to me, so I'd call her Odessa. She'd spend her days on her own odyssey, adventuring through neighborhood gardens the world over. Of course she also would enjoy curling up with a cup of tea and piece of cake after her long days of travel.

    P.S. I've been knitting bunnies recently. They're so much fun to make, but naming them is difficult!
