This is Milo my daughters new puppy. He arrived four weeks ago and really loves Lucy my Jack Russell. Milo is a Jackahuahua. We think he is more Jack Russell.
This is my entry in the decorated egg competition at work. The chick and bunny are plastic eggs covered in pipe cleaner. I used a hot glue gun, and singed my fingers a few times!The nest is wool roving lightly needle felted into a soft nest for the four styrofoam eggs. I tried a few methods, like using nail polish on a plastic egg but I got myself into a real mess.
The nest has four eggs,painted using acrylic paint;the green has a sunflower painted free hand with glitter embellishment, the pink is covered in foil butterfly stickers,the yellow one has a ribbon round the middle, and the main entry is the sequinned egg.
Mothers Day – we ventured out for High Tea and were joined by the Tweed City mice, Boab and Bella. As you can see they enjoyed the food,especially the macaroni cheese and the scones and cakes.
We had a lively meal and great time. Boab and Bella plan to travel more now that their daughter Ribena is older. Vimto, their son is still at school but they plan get out more and blog about their experiences.
what do we call multiple bunnies?
Well here’s two, Red ted art have a you tube video of how to make these. If you have lots of paper, these are great for little hands and can be decorated with pens or google eyes. All you need is paper….
Easter will be here sooner than we realise so today I was thinking what to do with the bunny template I have used to make Easter cards This is the outcome. A cute little bunting from patterned paper and paper string.
I cut lots of bunnies from patterned paper, glued on a Pom Pom tail and punched a hole for the string.Its a fun and easy Easter bunting.
Anyone who knows me well enough will tell you that I love Jewellery.
I especially like anything quirky or unusual and these appeal to me very much
This is a sweet little necklace any knitter would love to have. It is from thinkcraft.com site, and something little hands could make ( with a bit of adult help) for a special someone for Mothers Day perhaps?
There is a full picture tutorial and instruction on the site.
If you are not particularly crafty then here are some that can be found selling on Etsy and Folksy.
I love the earrings!
Thinking about how we learn new techniques when it comes to crafts and knitting etc. I love books and enjoy reading about crafts as much as doing. I read websites, books blogs anything to find new projects and ideas. Following on from my post re knitted jewellery , I have to say when it comes to learning , then, I am a visual learner and Craftsy have a brilliant video class to learn the techniques of bead knitting.
Craftsy is a great site where you can find classes and tutorials and also patterns to knit and sew etc.
As you know, I am interested in knitting small things. I’m also very interested in knitting with beads.
This pattern from the Betsy Beads book by Betsy Hershberg shows how beads can make any knitted piece extra special. I have had the book for some time and just enjoy it.
studio knits.com is Betty’s website and well worth looking. The kits and tutorials for the project are there.

Woolly Land Sheep
These little sheep are found in flutterby patch.blogspot.co.uk. a free pattern and great fun for Easter. They are Chalky and Charcoal, they come with coats to knit so you can change them and there is also a pattern for Rose, the little girl sheep. I found this blog when I was searching for toy patterns. it’s great fun and worth a visit.
