Tawnee was very calm but very protective of her new babies ofcourse, throughout this and I could see that she already delivered the afterbirth as well, so after the nestbox and the babies were secure, the cleaning up of Tawnees’run had to be done. She was eating and drinking normal and everything seemed to be going very well ! What a morning !!!
Here are some photos of the new baby bunnies, born as a surprise ! on Monday morning at +/- 6.30am:
Tomorrow the weighing begins to see how they are all growing.
I have put a big tunnel in the run of Trixie, Tilda and TicTac and they are having so much fun chasing each other through it. No wonder they are exhausted after a full morning of play !
This weeks blog update has some very soft hand dyed tops that are amazing to spin and felt and some extremely soft hand spun and dyed Camel bunny yarn as well. New are the Felted soaps ! I made the soaps a month before Bendigo, et them mature and then felted some of our hand dyed fibres around the, Felted soaps aare fun to use, make the soap last longer, is super soft, and even after the soap is gone, you can still use it as a face washer or something else ! Great fun! The soap is made with coconut butter, vegetable oil, calendula flowers, chamomile and jojoba oil and is amazing for delicate skins.
I have also relisted the new harvest of Buddhas Tears tea , some amazing blooming art tea: it tastes as good as it looks and is amazing to watch as well ! and the badges ! So, get your snaffling boots on: here are this weeks offerings!
Next week is going to be the launch of a super NEW blend !!!!! This one is so special , so soft , so amazing it will get you drooling ! preparations are on their way to get a big batch prepped and dyed this weekend ! More on facebook and my ravelry group later next week !!! stay tuned !

This finely picked blooming tea ball has been masterfully tied together by hand and lightly dried shortly after cultivation. Once the blooming flower tea ball is steeped in near-boiling water it blooms like a real flower. It unfolds into a high-rising of globe amaranth sitting on a tray of green tea leaves. The combination of the flowers' captivating scent and the fresh tea leaves produces a wonderful and balanced aroma. Green tea is an excellent anti oxidant and the globe amaranth is a perfect liver cleanser, great for skin conditions, is said to improve vision and is great fighting headaches !
Preparation Methods:1. Put one blooming flower tea balls into a glass.
2. Pour into glass 150ml 85°C water.
3. Brew for 3-5 minutes until the blooming flower tea ball sink down and fully unfold. The blooming flower tea do not get bitter as fast as regular tea, so it is safe to add time to the steeping.
