Easter (and stuff)
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. Easter was lovely in our household. The excitement was palpable from the moment the children woke up in the morning. First thing in the morning they decorated their baskets ready for egg hunting.
They love the easter hunt, with clues, all round the garden and house. Lizzy will need her own set of clues next year as Alfie tends to take over!
The chickens were also roped into the entertainment. We each chose a chicken and, with a bit of food for encouragement, they were let out of their run for the Great Annual Chicken Race!
These photos were an experiment taken with my Hipstamatic camera on my iPhone and are supposed to look like 1960's photos. I rather like them!
We also painted eggs which were then rolled down the sloping driveway of our house to choose the winner. This caused much hilarity as each egg seemed to have its' own method of rolling.
I have put down my crochet for the time being and have taken up knitting. First I knitted a bunny (which is just a body, ears and a pom pom tail!
I then progressed to knitting my first teddy bear.
This one is for Alfie and I have more wool to make a white one for Lizzy. Don't look too close, I hope to improve as time goes on but, as per usual, I am teaching myself as I go, so it's rather a long process!
The past few days have been spent preparing for the Textile and Costume Fair at Dairy House this weekend. I have mocked up my stall so here is a sneak preview of the goodies I will be taking. The weather is getting better and we have a promise of sunshine, hoorah, I knew it would come! I hope to see some of you there.
