Miss Forget-Me-Not

I wanted to write this post to say thank you to a very special lady, Stephanie of millefeuilles.blogspot.ie.  In June of this Year, I contacted Stephanie and asked her if she would make one of her beautiful hares for my daughters eight birthday.


She asked for me to describe Lucy and all that she liked and disliked so that she could get a picture in her mind of who she was making the present for.


We chatted back and forth over the coming weeks and I felt so naughty keeping a secret from Lucy.  She has a knack of getting people to tell the truth!!


I waited with my nerves on edge for my phone to ping with the first photographs of this little beauty. When it finally arrived I found that Stephanie only sent me a picture of the dress.  I was so impatient with excitement at this stage, I felt like I was fit to burst!   But Stephanie was being a little on the cruel side and made me wait a whole day more and even at that only sent me one picture at a time.  You meanie Stephanie!!

 
With each and every photo I fell in love with this hare more.  I loved all of the little details that made it so very special, the embroidery, the beautiful material for the dress, the little handbag, the lace finished bloomers and of course the sweet little face.
Now all I had to do was wait for it to arrive for Lucy's birthday.


When Lucy opened the package, she screamed with delight. I know my daughter and I know that she really does appreciated anything that's handmade and that she will take great care of it.  She instantly bonded with Miss Forget-Me-Not and I found it very hard to get some pictures of her because every time that I picked her up to take some piccies, Lucy ran over and took her back off me!


My husband sings an old Irish song to Lucy now when he sees her playing with the hare.

The daisies and the roses 
are blooming round the spot
where we parted 
and she whispered
"you'll forget me not".


So thank you very much Stephanie.  It was a real pleasure working with such an incredibly talented lady as you.  You made something that I know my daughter will treasure forever.

  2. How lovely. Lucy looks very happy with her Rabbit. I have some of the fabric in her dress and it's one of my favorites.
