On a brighter note, thought I would show how my felt Easter eggs are coming along. As often happens, I modified the pattern somewhat! Decided to applique most of the pieces using blanket stitch - looked much neater to me. I also just joined the egg segments with running stitch - my whip stitch looked disgusting and I was quite discouraged for a day or two. After unpicking and resewing with running stitch I am much happier.
Oliver was very interested in this strange basket which had appeared in HIS garden. I use it at school for Easter singing games with the early childhood kids. Came from Spotlight a couple of years ago.
Not to be outdone, Molly had to check things out too.
I will leave you with these pictures of Oliver greeting another one of my school props. Had this bunny for many years and it's always very popular with the kids - quite realistic really and they like to pat it. I picked it up very cheaply after Easter one year.
Nearly forgot - big thanks to Peg who is my third person for the Pay It Forward challenge.
