As the song from Gilmore Girls says “So welcome to my little corner of the world”. It’s all about me and my crafting – focusing around my love for stitching and sewing along with anything else that catches my eye. So welcome, grab a coffee and happy reading.

It's me, you're not seeing things!

I can't believe it's been nearly 7 weeks since my last blog. I'll be doing a few blogs over the coming weeks to make an attempt at catching up. I'm going to write off the tusal and theme-a-licious for March and April, although I did do about 15 different projects in March if you count the craft show projects. Here are some of them. Both knitting projects were completed as was the MS chick.

So last month Laura and I did an Easter exchange and here are the fabulous goodies I received. The box had goodies for all the family.

Ok so here goes for describing it all!! There was some lovely fabric and wool tops for felting, dragon buttons, tissues and chocolates.

How cute is the stitched card! Laura made me a kilner pincushion jar for my ORTS and a cute chick stuffed with a Creme Egg and a beautiful biscornu.

If you look carefully you can see bunnies and chicks. It does have a special name but I can't remember. (sorry Laura!) The bottom has a lovely Easter Egg button that reminds me of Jasperware pottery.

Laura also sent my Hubby a very cute Binky and a cool bookmark. We were going to take the Binky's on holiday but I totally forgot so I'm afraid you don't get the story of when the Binky's went to Butlins!

So that was the fabulous Easter parcel I received from Laura, Here's what I sent...

I've had to borrow the pictures from Laura's blog as I forgot to take ones myself. There was the usual, buttons, charms, ribbon. Some Spring coloured wool and a bag of Easter treats. There are some small pieces of vintage Laura Ashley fabric too for Laura's Hexagon quilt.

Here is the Biscornu...It's made up of Margaret Sherry designs from an old cross stitcher. The chicks are rather cute!

I also had some fab goodies from Steph and I'll share those in my next post

I have been reading all your posts, but I'm sorry I've not commented, 7 weeks means an awful lot of blogs to read. I never cease to feel inspired by all your creations though.
