Well a girl can dream can't she? Saturday was a lovely spring day - blue skies & a strange yellow blob that made your eyes hurt if you looked at it. I left MrVV with little son (big son had gone off with friends to play badminton) whilst I headed out with my parents to a greenpeace/craft fair in Southwold.
2 of my sisters had a stall there - one selling cards & the other bags & purses - all gorgeous but no pics as I forgot my camera :( A friend had a stall there too selling a range of handmade items - from clothes to decorative items. I'm a sucker for anything with Russian dolls on it and I couldn't resist this rather pretty lady who has come home with me & now lives in my sewing room;
Sunday was definately not spring like so the only thing for it was to stay indoors in the dry & warmth & craft :) I manage to finally sew together all the squares I've made so far for my blanket - can definately see the progression of ability!! (pics another day). I was also keen to try something from a book that arrived last week;
I thought I'd make some of the fabric eggs to hang on my easter tree. I though it might be easier to start with the bigger one - except it appears to be more ostrich size than chicken! So instead I've added a bunny face and it can hang by itself;
Think when I can get some more springlike fabric I'll try the smaller size & hope that ends up more normal egg sized. This is the 2nd book I've got recently which has pictures of eggs & easter items hanging from branches cut from the garden. This lovely book has a similar idea;
A lovely idea and one I'll definately be doing again this year - this is the only pic I can find of last years - wish I'd taken another when the twigs began to burst into leaf & when the jug was filled with daffs;
Well I've seen the forecast for the rest of the week, more rain and wintery stuff so I guess I shall be spending more time sewing & knitting - something positive to come from all this wet, cold & greyness.
The boys were back to school today, only another 5 weeks & 4 days till their next holiday - lets hope spring is truely with us by then.
