Happy Easter Card

This week I’ve been busy with flowers. The garden is mainly brown, with very little life poking through the mud yet. So I needed to bring some colour into the house.

My first idea was to get organised & make an Easter card for my Granny, who is 92. I don’t send many Happy Easter Card Easter cards but I know she’ll love it & really appreciate my efforts. She doesn’t get around much, so it doesn’t take a lot to brighten her day. I hope this helps. I bought a little kit from Hobbycraft, along with some needlecraft cards. It only took a few hours and it came with everything you could possibly need. I even had some left over thread, which I’m sure will come in handy at some point. The most difficult bit was the outline & the writing, as it wasn’t always clear where you had to sew but I think it looks okay! I am super chuffed that the card fits pretty well, as it was a last minute purchase & it’s all stuck together with a bit of craft glue that I bought in town the other week. Nice. I think Granny will be pretty impressed with my crafty skills!

Tulips in February With it being a pretty gloomy February weekend, I couldn’t resist these gorgeous tulips from Waitrose this morning. Bright & sunny when there is no sun, they made me feel warm inside. (ahhhhhhh!) I love flowers. They really brighten my mood & my day no matter what. They are even more important to me at the moment, as I have now realised our garden needs so much work doing to it that we won’t be having anything growing in it for a while. With that in mind, there’ll be plenty of flowers in the house!

The Joy of Being Crafty

The Joy of Being Crafty

The joy of a new crafty project. I cannot describe the feeling I get when I buy some bits & pieces to make something new. The potential success. The new skills. The end result. The oooing & ahing that will (hopefully) occur. This is what I plan will happen with these little bits that I picked up from Hobbycraft on Friday evening.

The Joy of Being CraftyThe Easter embroidery kit is for an Easter card that I plan to sew for my Granny. She’ll love it & keep it for ever! The other bits are for some jewellery that I plan to make. I’m not quite sure what yet, but I bought some bits to make earrings & I know how to make fasteners from the wire for bracelets & necklaces so sky’s the limit with these. The blue button isn’t for anything specific, but I just couldn’t resist it! I have a button addiction. (More on that in future posts!)

So you will have to check back in a few weeks to see how I’m getting on. Pics will definitely follow!
