Happy Easter

I'd just like to wish you all a very happy Easter, with a couple of pictures of my Easter Bunny Tree.  I've always wanted an Easter Egg Tree, however when I found these Bunnies in Aldi's last week I'd had a plan!

I found the twigs and spray painted them silver. Attached coloured wool to the chocolate bunny's. Put the twigs into a glass jar with some glass nuggets to support them and then hung the bunnies. Finished off with a simple message.  I did start to add ribbon etc., but decided less is more...

A Skirt For Amy

I don't do a lot of dress making any more, however my friend Julie asked me if I would make a simple skirt for her daughter Amy.  They had trawled the shops to find one like her older sister has, but couldn't find any.  So we made a trip down to the fabric shop, Amy chose the material and we selected the widest elastic for the waist.

It didn't take long to make. A couple of hours maybe!

Amy was very pleased with her skirt and wore it to school the next day!
