Happy Eastertime

I hope you all have a lovely Eastertime, the sun is beaming in through my window today on this Good Friday day, but its still very cold.  A very welcome change from the recent snowy conditions we've been having.

I had a visit from Clare yesterday, and she never comes empty handed. This time she had made hubby and i our very own mini simnel cake, it looks lovely, seems a shame to cut into it!

It's been a busy week so not a lot of crafting has been happening. A few more rows have been added to Isabelle's cardigan but not worth a pic as you saw that last time. No parlour SAL Wednesday as i had finished the last cottage. The next one arrived yesterday so now to begin number 3.

I've had Shores on the frame this week and i've sorted out the little problem

Spot the repair ...

I wove the cut thread into the wording each side of it and then rewove a new thread into the gap and even looking at it close up it's quite hard to tell where the repair is, so i am one very happy (and relieved) stitcher.  The rest of this block is all stitched but large blocks of the same colour so although a little boring it should grow quite quickly. 

Being Friday, tonight is stocking-a-long with Nativity Stocking.  This week will see the nativity part completed as i only have one angel and the star bursts to add.  It will be strange stitching Christmas nativity as we celebrate Eastertime.

Enjoy your Easter with your loved ones whatever you have planned.

Love and {hugs}
