Welcome Hare

 This is my new hare, little Welcome!  He has a very important job.


Every morning he's up before the sun with his cleaning tools.
He carries a little crocheted cotton cloth in his pocket.

  In his right paw is his special, gentle brush, made of the softest reeds.


 In his left, he carries his rusty old pail, which is always full of sparkling dewdrops.
Welcome dusts and polishes the flowers as they wake, and freshens them up with a dewdrop jewel.


 He's been doing this for a very long time,  so his clothes are rather worn.  but he's very  proud of his stripy red dungarees and wouldn't change them for anything. They smell of morning coffee and spices too, which he likes very much!

He's very proud of his job,  but when he's finished he loves to take a long rest and a well deserved snooze!




 He's a thoughtful and loving little hare - but  he's also very friendly and sociable. When it comes to playtime he can be quite mischievous, and has  a lot of adventures!

For now though he's happy to sit and have his photo taken and say 'Hello' to everyone!



Welcome is made entirely with natural products and is hand painted with watercolour paints.  He will be in my on-line shop in June with his personal story scroll and carrying bag! 
Wish me luck please, I am finally taking the plunge to put my characters,  patterns and embroidery designs for sale!

  3. Good Morning Jules, I am trying to catch up with friends this morning before I leave for the nursing home. Hubby a wee bit better, but hopefully each day of meds will make him feel better. Your little hare is so adorable and I loved the story that you said with each picture. I love to see what everyone makes. So many very talented people you included in blog land. Enjoy your day. Hugs and Prayers from Shirley@shirleystitches

  16. Jules Welcome is precious. I adore hearing his story of how he tends the flowers with his little pail of dewdrops. I can almost smell his coffee and spice aroma as he hops about. Easter is come and gone and I do hope Welcome can now do a little relaxing and enjoying this beautiful Spring. Creative Welcome Bliss...
