My Nephew Mickey and my new scarf

Hellooooooooo! Hard to believe Monday is here already! Is it me or has the gas pedal mashed down to the floor these last two months of 2011? Good grief is time ever flying by!

Isn't this the cutest boy? This is my Nephew, Mickey. Don't ya just want to kiss his nose?!? I am truly blessed to have lots of nephews and nieces of the "fuzzy" type throughout blog land. Mick's mum is my dear friend Jade of Zen of Bun. Recently, in one of my moments of "I'm freezing and it's not even winter yet" I chatted with Jade about making me a scarf. Jade loves to crochet and since I love "handmade by friends", I knew she would be the perfect person to make it for me. I told her the colors I wanted and let her take it from there.

This is what she created! It's made from Alpaca wool! Fuzzy!!! It's soooooooooooooooo soft and sooooooooooo warm!

Isn't it gorgeous!?! David laughs at me because I'm always wearing it, like yesterday when I was wrapping presents in my office. I can't help it. It's warm and I'm always freezing!

I love it Jade and I know it will get a lot of use this winter! Thank you so very much!


Oh and one last thing. Mickey is a celebrity again this year. He is in the Rabbits 2012 calendar from Bun Space. I was lucky enough to win a copy on Jade's blog. I'm so proud of my nephew!

Have a fun week and I'll check back with ya soon!
xx, Michelle

Heehee, wait until you see Project #2; I'll be sending you a sneaky-peeky as soon as I get a chance.

Hi Shell,

And you... are gorgeous in your beautiful new scarf and looks like it will keep you warm.
Mickey's a sweetie and the Bunny Calender is so lovely.

Have a happy week and yes, the year is going so fast. I have so much to do and here I am sitting at the computer and it is nearly lunch time. Where did the morning go? Eek!

Hugs

Mickey is so adorable!!! His little face makes me giggle.

I've never felt anything made from alpaca. It is beautiful though!

Karen M said...

The scarf looks, great. Jade did a wonderful job with it. Just wondering, though, about the target on Mr. Micks head. Is there something subliminal going on here?

Tina Eudora said...

Oh Michele if I had a sweet bunny like any of those lovelies I would be cuddling them all the time and no work would ever get done around here!
What a great scarf and are things not so much more special when friend makes it! Somehow it just feels warmer and softer!
Hug the bunnies for me please!

Bunnies come in so many shapes and sizes... for a minute there, I thought your nephew was some other- worldly sort of creature. The scarf is great and how BLUE your eyes are!
