Well, this is just a quick post, squeezed in between chocolate eggs.
This weeks crocheting has all been Easter gift related, quick fix crochet, lots of fun and lots of colours!
These were Easter cream egg cosies in such Eastery shapes as bunnies, lambs, chicks and one-eyed aliens! The pattern is easy to follow, in a simple slip stitch which makes the stretchy cosy easily able to fit a hens egg to keep your boiled egg warm. The pattern is a ravelry pattern which I did in stylecraft (using some of my more girly colours)....I highly recommend it for a last minute gift idea.
These butterfly wings were quickly finished off with a ribbon to tie around the chest. I spent ages deliberating the elastic arm loops on other wings I've seen, and decided on this simpler method for my small niece. These were my own 'see where it goes' design.
I made these lovely little drawstring bags for my mother and mother-in-law with a couple of small eggs in. The pattern was a ravelry pattern and I used Rico Micro DK which just has the most beautiful colour changes and lovely sheen.
We have had a lovely Easter Sunday with our traditional egg hunt at my in-laws house with a huge scrumptious lunch which we all chipped in on. I would show you the pictures of my heart-attack sausage rolls, but they've all been scoffed, along with the cheese muffins and quiche....my sister-in-laws famous lasagne, chocolate mousse, carrot cake all washed down with some chocolate eggs! My family really know how to eat!
Looking forward to looking at all the other projects on this week....that is after I've eaten a little more chocolate.
Hope you all have a great week.x
