Happy Easter !

I thought I would pop by to wish you all a very Happy Easter and my best wishes for the coming Spring.

I absolutely love this time of year…well, to be honest this has a few caveats…..I love this time of year, when it is crisp, dry and sunny.  Although I know we need rain to keep nature in balance, that dull grey wet stuff gets right on my nerves….and while the snow was pretty…I am very much done with it for another year!

Okay, so that’s my weather grumble over.  Hope you have all been well.  I have been having a lovely time playing with wool, yarn and thread.  As you can see, I have been dabbling with cross stitch.  I love the rhythm of putting little crosses into Aida fabric…I would love to do it on linen, but my eyesight won’t really allow it these days.

I love the colours, and I love the simplicity of it.  As a child and well into my teens I enjoyed cross stitch, and it has been almost like a holiday revisiting it once again….like meeting up with an old friend you haven’t seen for years.

I would like to incorporate the little cross stitched pieces into the Suitcases, and am currently working up a couple to make into little pillows.

I do have a larger project planned….just for fun to brighten up the shed….and something to dip in and out of….but I am waiting on delivery of some DMC threads at the moment so can’t quite get going.

I am not sure where I got to on the introductions front, but Whimsy and Meadow are the little Fuzzpotlings, that currently reside in the playroom, whilst they wait for a new home.  Now these little girls are really full of fun.

First of all lets say hello to Whimsy…

Now this little girl has hair created using Teeswater Lambs Locks, and as they are just cleaned and un-dyed, she is a very natural blonde! Her hair is the softest of things, and I have to say, I love playing with it.

As a result of having gorgeous curls, she is very trepidatious now that we are in April and there may be a shower in the air!  This of course means Whimsy will not travel anywhere without her umbrella.

She has made really great friends with Meadow…

Now Meadow is a rather gorgeous redhead.  and as you can see, understands the perils of the weather.

She too likes to be prepared for those April showers, and just like her friend, won’t go anywhere without a brolly ( if only my daughters, would take a leaf out of her book!)

These girls love to have fun…

And are always up to mischief, with their two up bike rides and little chats!  I think they may be a little surprised who will be joining them soon….

Speckles is almost ready and this little Giraffe, really loves to play.  It will be a nice surprise to have him join them for tea parties and games.

I haven’t made a giraffe for such a long time, it seems.  I love playing with colour and yellow just seems to pop at this time of year.  I will pop by with an update soon, and let you know if Speckles has made friends with the girls!!

I had better hop off, and will leave you with an Easter Bunny….(or two)IMG_3059

Hoppy Easter every Bunny xxxx
