A Happy Easter to you all. As you can see this year I have a piece of a real tree on which to hang my crochet eggs. I have a friend who was looking for something similar last Friday and so I was looking too and I found this lying on the ground. When I… Read More Happy Easter
To all my followers whether you see Easter as a religious festival, a Spring festival or just an excuse for lots of chocolate or none of these. I always like to photograph my Hot Cross Buns. This year they turned out very well. Here is my most perfect one (no sugar glaze as I actually… Read More Happy Easter
Happy Easter to you all Easter is about Hope and New Life so here as a follow up to last Sunday.
A Happy and Blessed Easter to all my followers! The photograph is one I took while staying in Taizé many, many years ago. Then later I added the text to turn it into an Easter card. I always feel that Festive Food adds to an occasion, so for Easter I made some ‘Simnel muffins’. Not… Read More Happy Easter
This year I made never-ending cards to send to the couple of people I send a card to, so I thought I would share one with you. And to finish I will share with you the cake I made this Easter. Not a simnel cake this year. My son saw a cake on a food… Read More Happy Easter

Originally I had thought that I wouldn’t be making any more eggs this year but then I got all sorts of ideas for new types of eggs and had to try them out. A bit of an obsession perhaps, like the snowflakes. 🙂 ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** I have added the final version of… Read More Extra eggy ideas
I made some crochet cards at Christmas with removable stars but it seemed to me after I had got into making bookmarks that cards incorporating removable bookmarks would be even more worthwhile. Now I am not really an Easter card sending person but where people have sent me cards in the past, I have felt… Read More Easter cards
Since Maryanne suggested that it would be a good idea to have some Easter related entries for the ‘Made It’ monthly challenge, I decided to try my hand at crochet eggs. I have realised that it is being impatient and lazy that leads me to write my own patterns. I start out due to this… Read More A Dozen Eggs!
