Happy Easter

Hello blog readers, I hope you are enjoying a lovely Easter
March of the Joyful World was made up quite a while ago.  Fabric and threads sorted for April, i better make a start on that....
A lovely surprise arrived last week, a beautiful handmade card from June to thank me for the bunny - which she has named Honey Bunny - and the travelling chart.  Thank you June
DS had a birthday too last week and I had been given this lovely hanger some time ago so stitched a little snooker/pool player to fit into it. He plays in a weekly team with friends.
A little more on the weekly LHN/CCN SAL with Barb and the ladies at Needecraft Haven, it's grown a lot since I last showed you....
The craft group have decided to stitch a Square for Syria so I stitched another square to go into their envelope.  The thread for this one is a Vicki Clayton silk named 'grapevine'  I thought it was appropriate as that's how word of this SAL has spread!
We had some lovely sunshine last week, I was in the garden and captured some pics of the lovely spring blooms ...
My camellias are finally in  flower ...

A host of golden daffodils...

and the primulas really do brighten up the pots ....

This little chap was having a fun time collecting nectar in the sunshine ....

Easter weekend and DH has gone up to the community allotment to help prepare for an event tomorrow afternoon for the community.    There's been lots of activity and will be goodies available to eat as well as Easter crafting things for children.  I've made a few Easter nests to add to the food table. 
I hope the rain holds off for the event - but not sure it will if the weathermen are to be believed, such a shame when lots of people are away or hoping to attend things.
If the weather does not behave and it has to be postponed till Monday, I can still enjoy an Easter treat at home.  This little lady has a couple of crème eggs inside her. The pattern was from a weekly magazine and she knitted up really quickly.

Holding out the cup of friendship to you all, and wishing you all blessings for a lovely Easter spending time with those you hold dear.
