Busy, busy, busy!

Hello everyone! Hope you have all had a wonderful Easter.

Ours has been relaxed, chilled and a little crafty!

Later there will be a little bit of this:

DSCN3469But first …I love making bread but rarely have the time so that was one of our first jobs this holiday. It was a mixed grain loaf (and yes it was out of a packet but we loved it just the same!)

It started off looking like this.


A little bit of stirring and here it is looking – as Little Miss H said ‘gooey’. She was right!


Then patience was required to let it rise and voila – a yummy loaf of bread was cooked.


It was delicious warm straight from the oven and made excellent toast too – highly recommended!


Little Miss H made herself an Easter Bonnet. I love watching her work – she has a keen sense of pattern and what is right and what is clearly just plain wrong – wish I was a little more like that – I umm and ahh as per my last post for what seems like weeks!!


Then came the making of the bags! While the rest of the household was busy watching the inevitable Easter films I cosied up on the sofa with some Pageant Wool (crinkly and purple and never used before! Gifted from a lovely soul who saw it and thought of me). I must say that I have waited for a while for inspiration to strike – but when it did – wow! I am super thrilled with these faery bags – they have grown out of my imagination and my love for all things fae. I hope you like them too – I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.




Oh my glitter! I love them – will need to be making more of them – pronto! If you come across Pageant Wool it looks tough to work with – it’s crinkly … very crinkly … but it is lovely to work with and the colours – oh my! Suffice to say – I love the wool and I love the bags!! Can you tell??!!

My host of angels – or gathering of fairies (whichever you prefer!) has also grown this week. I love them! I really hope others will too. These little lovelies are destined for new homes (hopefully!).


That’s my Easter Week pretty much complete! Although I do have a little secret something up my sleeve to reveal – hopefully next time. It’s cute – maybe even twee – but gorgeous nonetheless! I love building stock for the next fair – it’s leading me to some fabulous discoveries. I hope you like them too.

Until next time, keep creating!
