I was appalled to read this morning about how Tesco ripped off one of Little Cotton Rabbit‘s adorable bunny egg cosies. I’ve admired Julie’s work from afar, and been delighted by her sweet creations, many of which she shares the patterns for, for free! For a corporate giant like Tesco to so blatantly copy her work is depressing, and I hope that this will be brought to the attention of the media. Update: Julie has taken the original post down, as it had attracted too much attention. Perhaps it would be a more meaningful silent protest for us knitters to knit one of her bunnies instead.
I’ve been meaning to participate in Abby’s Five Senses Friday for a while now, so here’s a little sensual insight into my day:
Smelling: Body Shop Tea Rose Perfume. Mmm. I’m not even sure what a tea rose is, but it certainly smells pretty. The (now sadly discontinued) Kidsilk Spray colour ‘tea rose’ is rather tempting too!
Hearing: J.J. Cale, ‘Money Talks’. Rockingest man around!
Seeing: John Seymour’s The New Complete Book of Self-Sufficiency on the table.
Touching: RYC Silk Cotton in ‘bloom’. Hmm, wonder what this will be? ;)
