Summer fun times – baby rabbits and Hornby Trains
What are the chances of reaching into a rabbit hole and grabbing hold of a baby rabbit?
The chances seem pretty good if you are Luna!
Exploring the lime orchard at the grandparents place, Luna investigated the first rabbit hole we came across, only to pull out six wee baby rabbits.
They had tightly closed eyes, were so soft and just wanted to snuggle up together, so sweet, it is a shame they are such a pest in the area. We talked all about them, how old they might be, where their parents might be, and so on. Luna has been dreaming of having a pet rabbit, unfortunately, in our situation, it’s not practical or safe to have one in our backyard, so this was extra special.
Elsewhere, my great grandparent’s Hornby Train set was an instant hit.
This used to be set up in a shed next door to where my dad grew up, his mum’s parents lived next door, and it was apparently grandfather’s special toy train.
I am very impressed with how well it works after all these years.
Clock work! So easy for small hands to use, and it moves so beautifully on the tracks.
Check out all the extra cars….
Most of them have their original boxes too.
Two working engines, and two for parts, a level crossing, tunnel and a bridge, this is serious clockwork train fun.
And heaps of extra track!
I was able to squeeze a few new – and soon to be completed – sewing projects, especially for the Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge…
New to the project pile:
Academy 2953, slacks in a lovely brown cotton blend from nana…
Getting back on track with the Vintage Play Suit sew along, Vogue 6435, a really stylish house pyjama outfit from all those months ago…
I needed to line the bodice, and didn’t get it cut out with the rest of the fabric, now it’s all ready to assemble!
Happy holidays xo
