Things you do when you're a mom.



It started out to be a simple request. Back in the spring, my little girl spied a Rainbow Bunny on the cover of Crafts and Things magazine. It was a very cute crochet project, and she asked me to make it for her. It was single crochet, easy peasy, so I said yes. How hard could it be?

8 Months later, I finally finished the never-ending Rainbow Bunny. What started out as a simple project to please my daughter morphed into a yarn and time sucker that required patience and attention to detail. It numbed my wrists, tested my patience and sent me to knitting purgatory until I finally finished the beast.


The results are worth it, judging by the look on my daughter's face. I'm not sure where "teddy" the giant rainbow bunny will reside, but it's a one of a kind (never do again) gift that is special to my little girl. Sometimes moms get it right.

I love the alternate meaning to one of a kind. :-)
