It's Monday and it's the first day of the month...Rabbit, Rabbit!!!!
What in the world is Rabbit, Rabbit? A few months ago I shared that this is I guess, a superstition that if you say Rabbit, Rabbit on the first day of the month, good luck will come your way. Hey, why not? :)
I took a bike ride up to the Chicago Botanical Gardens yesterday and was surprised to find a Butterflies and Blooms exhibit. If you are anywhere near Chicago, I highly recommend visiting the exhibit. I felt as though I was in a fairy tale story with all the butterflies flying about.
For some reason, they really liked me as they kept landing on me.
This one hitched a ride on my leg and would not leave. When I was ready to go, I had to get one of the people from the garden to remove him as we were not supposed to touch them. They told me that I am going to have tons of good luck as another superstition I guess is that when a butterfly lands on you, they bring good luck. Again, I'll take all I can get :)
I thought I would share a few other pictures that I took. I could really bore you as I took tons, but I will refrain :)
This one doesn't even look real!
On this first day of August, I'm so happy that I can send out a little good luck with the announcement of the Swoon Patterns Evelyn Handbag and Market Tote pattern give away.
And the winner is Ginger!!! Congratulations Ginger. Email me at Sewbussted@yahoo.com and I will send your pattern out to you. It's a PDF pattern, so you'll get it right away!
Before I go, I thought I would share a few pictures of some of the Evelyn Bags I found.
I thought both of these were especially cute. A little bit of an eye teaser on the left and a little Lilly Pulitzer on the right.
This photo gives you an idea of how large the market tote pattern is. Good size bag.
Have a wonderful day and I wish you a month full of the best of luck!
