Keeping Busy

With just two ‘sleeps’ to go before I go over the ‘hill’s again and hopefully get this nasty cast off my foot, have a good old scratch and come home a free woman.  But I’m not getting my hopes up too much ‘cos nine out of ten times I wouldn’t be so lucky as to get what I want – so enough said.

008In order to keep myself busy over this Easter006 weekend I finally cut into my gorgeous 005collection of Japanese Taupes and began a ‘Sunbonnet’ wall 010hanging.  The background fabric is a linen blend that wasn’t as 005costly as the taupes yet I felt still went well with those fabrics while not taking anything away006 from them.  Some of these little beauties still have a little bit of embroidery that needs to be added to them, while others need a few buttons and/or colonial knots.  It’s been such a lovely way to spend a wet holiday period.
By the way, for a self confessed choc-o-holic I can honestly say, hand on heart, that I haven't dived into one single Easter egg – yet!
Happy Easter

  5. Oh your Sunbonnets are so nice , lovely colours...Happy Easter from Northland.

  6. You are a braver woman than I am. I still can not bring myself to cut my Taupes. But I must say, your little ones are looking fantastic. Maybe in the winter, I can convince myself to make a start. You can be my inspiration
