Happy Easter


The laughter of a child is
the light of a house
-African proverb
Hello to you all. While my hubby and son have been away I have used the extra time to investigate different ideas for my show entries and to get some craft work done. I have also been asked to make some toys for the school office and have started this weekend off with one of my favourites.......
Mrs Ladybird
also this little doll made out of left over bits.
Pretty dolly
It's not long to go now and we're off on our trip to Italy. We can hardly wait and I thought it would be great to make some name tags to put on our bags. Fiona put me on to the Homespun magazine for a bag tag pattern which I adjusted slightly by stitching names on to calico and sewing it together. Many thanks for the tip Fiona, they are terrific.
Name tags
I know I pretty much tease my friend Heather to the ends of the earth but she truly is a great friend. Heather was kind enough to share some of her buttons with me, which to us is equivalent to sharing the lotto winnings. lol.
Super cute buttons
A great find at the library....can't wait to make some of these.
Great book
I will now head off to make sewing shed once again with a hot cup of tea to go. I would like to wish you all a Happy Easter and hope the weekend is special for you. I have hubby and Cory missing this year at Easter as they are in South Australia, so I hope they take care and it won't be many days to go before I pick you both up from the airport. Good luck with the go karts tomorrow Cory. Big kisses to Pixie.
Happy Easter to you all
 
Cheers, Anita
