Cosy Easter

Sometimes you see something and however nuttily busy you are you just have to go with it. Last night blog browsing I stumbled upon a great tutorial on Penny's blog. Even though I should have been putting the finishing touches to my makes I got distracted. And even though I thought I wouldn't find time to pop by here until the weekend was over, well I just wanted to show you what I found and made.

So last night I made one ditsy floral egg cosy for first one Bun



then I made a second one in bed this morning. I've also made a red one, but it was shy and didn't get in front of the camera. Three is all we'll need as Mr Bun is not partial to a dippy egg. Choccly eggs are a different matter though.


As I sat and stitched and knitted this morning, I looked round to see I had a feathery audience. The ladies get fed up waiting for their treats nowadays and so come knocking for them. Indoors we munched on the Porter cake I made last night and the ladies had a grape or two.


For Woodbridge finishing touches have been added to new pot holders,


hooky hangers,



garden floral brooches and


squishy square pincushions.


I've also got some beautiful coloured glass to add to my stall - lets just hope the rain stays away after all this hard work.

  15. I've had a really enjoyable mooch through your blog and see we have the same Magpie habits. I see one or two green glass items similar to ones I have. I'm a bit less of a compulsive buyer nowadays as at some point the house got full.
    My sons also have the hoarding gene and they left home and went without their 'stuff'.
    Very pretty and enjoyable blog.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
