Eggs and Happy Days

Well, I know that Easter has passed and back to school we all go this week but I hope you all had a good one. I have no crochet to show this time (where did those holidays go?) but I thought I’d show you a little Easter montage instead!

First off, after my last post, I decided to experiment with ‘twee’ and because it was Easter it seemed that a painted blown egg was calling me. I have never ever blown an egg before but it is actually fairly easy if you are gentle with it! I only broke one in my experiments! What to paint on the egg – well a toadstool of course.

Okay so yes they are completely twee – but I still absolutely love them! The kids were fascinated with how light they were when compared to a normal egg.

They formed part of my little Easter display that was moved round the house – started in the conservatory but then went to the hall because I loved seeing it when I walked through the door. Mr Toadstool is talking about removing the radiator cover in the hall but I love putting things on it so if it goes I will be very sad! (And will have to put up a shelf or get a small table instead!!)

One of the lovely things about our new house is the area that surrounds it. Little Miss H and I try to go for a wander round the lanes after tea most nights (well when it’s not horrid weather anyway). Here are some of the beautiful views we encounter on our travels.

Oh how I love open fields. I especially love them when they have tall grass or wheat growing in them – I put this down to watching too much ‘Little House on the Prairie’ when I was little! Google the opening titles and you’ll see what I mean.

Stunning granite properties border the route – I think this one is ‘La Presse’ and I would guess that it would have housed a cider press in time past.

I love the wheel in the back of this property – it is just visible from the road. The owners must have wondered what I was doing.

I was given some beautiful roses on Easter Sunday by my Mum. They’re so vibrant.

And my final pictures of this post are of my Little Miss H celebrating the weather – the water was coming over the sea wall and we were wave dodging. There was so much spray that we came back to the car a little on the damp side. This beach is about two minutes down the road from me. So lucky to live where we do.

Next time I hope to show you a nearly complete Sampler Blanket – I’m in the middle of joining squares together at present and then onto the edging. I’ve got a commission for owlie bunting and a scarf so need to get a wiggle on!

Until next time, keep munching through those Easter eggs!
