Egg heads & stitching!



My hubby Ian was having an Easter buffet lunch in the office on Thursday and they asked if people would bring in decorated eggs.  My daughter Heather decorated these as Dad at work and Dad with his camera.  Everyone thought they were very funny.   
My fabulous spring picture at the head of my blog was done by my little mindee Oscar who is four.  I have to take photographs as evidence for my annual inspections and keepsake albums for the children.  Oscar loves having his picture taken and can;'t wait to see his photograph.  It is also a lovely reminder for the children and parents to look back and see all the friends they made, fun and games they enjoyed and arts and crafts they made.  



I don;t know what blogger does to do my photos but when I upload them on to my laptop they are lovely and clear and then as soon as I post them on my blog they are all grainy.  Anyway, this is an up-date on my Easter stitch. I just need to finish my headless chicken and give my bunny a tail and this piece will be done.  I will  then start on my April SAL design that Elaine (shutterbuglady) chose this month.   It is another cute chart called Spring has sprung by the Rainbow Gallery. 
Happy Easter!

What a lovely picture of Oscar, Lainey and those eggs remind me of the 70's when we painted them exactly the same way.
Happy Easter

Lovely pics Elaine - don't you think it's so crazy about the 'evidence' thing though? I have friends who have given up childminding because of the Ofsted requirements - all of them women who have LOVED to mind children, and have put their 'mindees' first, but couldn't cope with the paperwork. Hats off to you for carrying on! Happy Easter!!
