Good morning, it's 8:25am and I sitting here in the kitchen all by myself. The children have gone off to school. Wonderful man has gone upstairs to work, even Sneaky dog has gone to lay on the landing. It's just me and Terry Wogan (radio 2). The washing machine is churning and the clock is ticking. I'll just say, the kitchen doesn't look like the picture above. Yes that is my kitchen but as I sit here, it looks nothing like that! It's the normal breakfast time chaos like thousands of other kitchens at this time in the morning, but that's the only pic I have available for unplanned blogging.
You remember a couple of posts ago that I was moaning about time slipping through my fingers. Well, on the spur of the moment I've decided we should have a quick catch up; just so you know I've not been sat on my ample bum doing nothing. So here are some of the little projects I've been doing over the last couple of weeks.
The picture of the bunny and cat are a couple of test patterns for the children at school. I'm going to teach them how to knit after Easter so I needed something simple. These two patterns are courtesy of the Internet I will find the links to them for you, but just not now. They are really simple, the rabbit being just a tension square. Here is the link for the cat pattern, there is some bad language in the post.
I've also been crocheting little covers for fairy lights, make sure you use 100% wool if you have a go at this, I don't want you going up in flames!
Then I made my mum a card for Mothers Day. That's fabric stitched onto the card.
I wanted to make her an apron but it just didn't happen, so I bought her a nice Greengate one and embroidered her a little love message on the front.
I quite like hand embroidery.
I've made myself a new bag. I'll try and remember to take a pic of the finished article, that would be much better wouldn't it.
This is some hand embroidery for some new bunnies.
And lastly because I'm going to be late for work, this years nursery is right outside my attic window. Aaaaah.
We've got lots of visitors coming to stay over Easter so I'm sure we'll be having another catch up post when its all over!
Enjoy your Easter. Love Fi x
