My mother in law has taken the small boys this morning so I am sewing.....at my new(well bought off ebay last summer and shove in the loft new!!) table in the workroom - its wider and a bit higher, than the previous one, so better to sew at..... (manky though with orange varnish but just got some CK oilcloth samples so I choose something to cover the top) I have cut out some mini fabric buckets and some fat hens...they will be sewn in a minute, I have 3 flat hens that need stuffing to become fat hens and I want to make a couple more brooches. Thats the easter gifts sorted then. I decided that this year I wouldn't be buying easter eggs - the cadbury etc cardboard box versions anyway!! Instead I've been picking up a selection of smaller eggs and easter shaped chocs and made these.....just a selection of sweeties in a cellophane bag tied up with yellow ribbon and lace. I made 7 last week for the kindergarten girls too. Have to say its probably working out the same price as buying an egg (as they are sooooo cheap this year!!) but I think this way is so much prettier. Have you spotted these in Tesco??? So sweet.... I'm trying to get super organised as I am having a wisdom tooth out next week..under sedation, a bone drilling job (gulp!!), and I have a little man turning 4 and having a party on Easter Monday so lots to do in advance in case I'm out of sorts. Mum is coming down so I'll have an extra pair of hands but the control freak in me means I'll have to do a lot myself lol!!!
When I have done this I'm going to put up my little collection of Easter trimmings, and I need to go out this week and find my Easter tree branch too, then I'll be ready :)
Back to the sewing!!
