My Easter Bunny

An evening out last night.......... Making an Easter Bunny. 

My lovely blogger friend Cherry Ann Art invited me out to a craft workshop as she thought i was in need of some craft therapy.

 Joan from Mad Bird Designs UK another blogger friend of mine took the workshop at Slack Space in Colchester. I hadn't seen my two friends for some time so it was great to catch up for a chat and of course the craft therapy

 Both Joan and Cherry are very gifted ladies in art and craft world so if you have some spare time just pop along to their blogs, i promise you they are worth a look.. 
They sell their makes at the pop up shop in Chelmsford and have also been given some space at Annabel Dee Galleries in Leigh on Sea.

The pattern we used for the rabbits were from a resent Mollie Makes monthly craft book.

Joan supplied all the materials for the rabbits which were sourced from e bay, auctions and boot sales. 
I don't know, but i have a thing for red, yellow and green at the moment. maybe that's just how am feeling..............

Happy Easter to everyone in Blogger Land.

Thanks girls i had a wonderful evening

My Spring Swap

Hi all you lovely bloggers out there, hope you are all keeping well and not too fed up with this terrible cold and miserable weather we are having. Would you believe it , it is the start of Spring today.

First i would like to say.. how very touched i was by all your kind and caring comments you gave me on my last post regarding my lovely dad. Thank you so very very much.xxxxxxxxxxx 

A few months ago i was partnered up with the lovely Rebecca from Crivens Cottage for a Spring Swap  This was my first swap so i was both excited and anxious about how it would go.
So this morning on the official Spring Equinox day my parcel arrived. I was so excited. I was just like a child in a candy shop.
Luckily hubby was around to take some photos of me with my parcel. 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart Rebecca for sending such a lovely parcel filled with such love and spring sunshine. 
I consider myself a very lucky girl to have received so many beautiful thoughtful gifts.

My parcel contained

A Flower Fairies Card
A  home made collage of spring flowers.
A daffodil mug.
The wonderful Weekend Book.
Hand made soap.
Lemon grass, ginger & citrus tea.
Thank you notes.
A good day sunshine plaque.
6 packets of veggie seeds.
Spring Story book.
2 lemon candles.
Cath Kidston hand cream.
All individually wrapped and sealed with loving written labels 

The song of the Rose Bay Willow Herb Fairy
On the breeze my fluff is blown,
So my airy seeds are sown.
Where the earth is burnt and sad,
I will come to make it glad.
All forlorn and ruined places.
All neglected empty spaces.
I can cover-only think!-
With a mass of rosy pink.
Burst then, seed-pods, breezes, blow!
Far and wide my seeds shall go!

   Thank you xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Here are some photos of the gifts i sent to Rebecca for her swap.

I used a vintage Liberty print for my makes. I hope Rebecca will like them...
