Where have the bunnies been?

It has been ages since we've updated the blog - sorry. Ky & I have been in Japan for most of February. Japan is heaven if you are seriously into textiles. The cotton prints there are amazing! We did a LOT of shopping in Fabric Town (Nippori, Tokyo). Between us, we brought back 103m of fabric!
Yesterday was the monster photoshoot so we can update the shop with the haul from Japan. It took us 9.5 hours and the processing / editing hasn't been done yet. Thank goodness Matt has awesome lighting equipment & magic pixies in his camera. There was no sunlight yesterday and his camera / lighting rig set up meant that we could still get the pics taken.

The trip wasn't all shopping for fabric though - I went to Hokkaido for the Sapporo Snow & Ice Festival, and to attempt skiing (which we shall not speak about). Near Sapporo is a place called Mt Moiwa with a cable car to the top. From there, you catch this to get to the summit:


Check out the logo on the side! It is actually a squirrel but it looks so much like a Voodoo Rabbit that I needed to share him with you.

PS: In Ky's last post she complained about how cold it was in Tokyo. At that time I was leaving Furano. It was -16 degrees celcius & snowing. I win!
