There’s a new post over at my new place!
January 4, 2016
Hello everyone, just popping by this little space to let you know I’ve moved home!!
You can now find me here http://www.greenrabbitdesigns.co.uk
Hopefully all my email subscribers will have been automatically directed to the new blog, I’m still on wordpress just in a different place with a new look, so please pop over and say hello!
If you receive my posts through any method other than email, you probably will need to change my address.
Blog rolls, bloglovin or any other reader would I expect (I’m no expert) all have to be changed, I really would hate to lose any of you.
Looking forward to seeing you in my new home!

In Flanders Fields
By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)
In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
“We will remember them“

I’ve just finished another little ‘Green Rabbit’, her name is Olive.
She has been crocheted in an olive green cotton/bamboo mix yarn and wears a little cardigan knitted in Rowan Handknit Cotton with two small olive green buttons.
When I think of olives I always think of France and the beautiful olive trees that grow there. Olive’s skirt is made with Parthenay fabric which I bought in La Droguerie in Nice when we were there earlier this year. So I suppose you can say she is another French inspired bunny.
I think she is my favourite bunny so far, I love the colours.
Not much chance of growing many olives here, the rain was bouncing off the road this morning!! The sun is shining now but the forecast is not good! Here we go again.
Have a good week, rain or shine! :)

I took these photos of poppies earlier this year while on holiday in the south of France. I think I always knew when I would share them with you, even when I was taking them and that would be today ~ Armistice Day.
I would like to dedicate this post to all those courageous men and women who gave their lives for our freedom during two World Wars and in all conflicts right up to the present day. To all those who have suffered horrific injuries due to war and who are still suffering and also to all those brave men and women who still serve.
