Make and do easter
We, ok I admit it me really have been really busy making things the last couple of days. I did get caught up in making a giant wall of blocks at playgroup today which all went really well, until a little girl I didn't know put a block in the wrong place. Her mum caught me moving it, then her moving it back, how she laughed! Embarrassing, oh my gosh, yes, I must be the biggest control freak to try and make the children's play aesthetically pleasing.
Yesterday, however I managed to cover a little footstool without any help, which was brilliant, do love it even if I say so myself. Just need to add a couple of little embroidery flowers (can't embroider so will be patches) and it'll be perfect ish. See the photo above.
And then today, got carried away with my own children making an Easter branch tree, have blatantly copied the idea off my friend Claire. Claire, is, of course the scarf maker, and thus genuinely artistic and graceful. Our effort rather less so, but am hoping it epitomises Easter in a sort of new growth, and cute things and chocolate way. What do you think?
