Easter Eggs and Bunnies

Hope you all had a Happy Easter and had lots of eggs.  Aren't these rabbits just adorable, such a shame to eat them. YEAH right. Sadly not mine, My son bit into his and  got very excited because he thought it was all solid (the ears were) the little ribbons and bells I have tied around a door knob, as they were too sweet to throw away.

My daughters  best friend, who moved away was visiting York, so we headed out to meet her.  It is over 2 years since they last saw each other. It was an ejoyable Good Friday.  I wandered off  visiting my usual haunts like Cath Kidston.  Fell in love with this bag that was in the shop window.  It instantly reminded me of an embroidery I did years ago. 

A little crumpled as its been in my sewing box for sometime.  Do you think it would work.
I also wandered into York Minster. Such a beautiful pieceful place, amongst all the Bank Holiday mayhem, both inside and out.

Finally I would like to tell you about a lovely thankyou present I received from the  Louise over at Gephart 836.   Shes a  talented crafter,  who also writes amusing blogs  and  takes beautiful photos (wish I could).  Please pop over and view her blog.  I so look forward to reading her posts, and also to receiving her comments.    She  reminds me of myself, in many ways.  Burning the tea while on the computer.  Yes I am guilting of that one (I hate cooking) but she is far braver than me and writes about it.   Anyway she very kindly posted me a quilting magazine. I was truly overwhelmed as it was totally unexpected, and it had travelled so far.   My first ever quilting magazine as well, as its a new hobby for me.  Full of patterns, giving exact amounts of fabric, no working out quantities. 

There was a lovely article about a young girl and her adventures in patchwork and sewing. Reminded me of myself. 

She will be a marvellous sewer in years to come.

and also a CD was included. I spotted this tradional quilt pattern, which is very simple and unfussy, maybe for my son.   Thankyou  again Louise, you  make blogging for me Fun. 


  1. I am SO glad the magazine was useful, you never can tell sometimes. It was one I hadn't bought before, but I'm always a sucker for a free gift!
    Love the embroidery and think it would make a fabulous bag. It reminded me a cross stitch I did a few years back....I'll have to dig it out and post about it.
    Thank you for your kinds words, they made me giggle and feel quite flattered.
    Oh and I love the new background on your blog - is this your handiwork?
    Take care,

  2. Thanks, the background is from blogger in their template designer section.

  3. Your embroidery is stunning and would make a lovely bag!
