HAPPY EASTER!


I hope everyone is have a lovely Easter Sunday and is not indulging in too many easter eggs.  My Mum has been knitting lots of these cute little bunnies for the children and elderly residents at the care home my gran lives in.  Each one contains a cadburys creme egg and the kids can also use them as puppets. She has also made some larger ones that they are going to raffle for funds but sadly I don;t have any photos of them.  I have no idea why the bunnies have no noses or whiskers but my Mum is 72 so maybe she just forgot..lol.


I finished off my little Easter piece into a small pillow this morning.  I had been hoping to use some fluffy edging but when I went to my box I of course had every colour but the one I needed.  I changed a few of the orginal colours on this design and I used some cotton wool for the bunny tail.  For once I am happy with how this one turned out....lol!    
I was looking back my blog posts a few weeks ago and I see that I have said quite a few times that I am going to make a start on Barbara Ana's Wake me up in a happy moood so I now have it kitted up and ready to get stitching this afternoon. Happy Easter Stitching Everyone!
