Some me time.......

I've made quite a lot of late, but it's all flown off to lovely new owners in the form of swaps and giveaways. So as I had a day off on Thursday, I decided I'd made something for me to keep. I wore sloppy joes all day not a scrap of makeup and ignored the looming housework, got out my sewing machine and created these.
I made myself a little Easter Hare in pretty spring colours. I think I will call her sunny, ''Sunny the Hare''.

After making my spring swaps, I wanted to make myself a Hare in a pot too.

I've spent a few hours in the kitchen today, made a shepherds pie for my in laws and a batch of scrummy lemon curd, and some cornflake cakes. I'm doing another car bootsale tomorrow, so will be up very early, must be bloody mad! Then tomorrow evening we've got mum and dad over for dinner. So a busy day tomorrow.

I've had a terrific lot of post this week, I just can't believe it really. Look what came in the post for me today.

A gorgeous gift from Madmummy. I really wasn't expecting this so was a lovely surprise. The place mat and heart are all scrumdidlyumpscious in this pretty Easter fabric.
As I'm writing this post I'm watching Britain's got talent. It's bloomin good too, laughing my head off here.
Have a lovely weekend and fantastic Easter.

LOVE YOUR MAKES!!! Harriet Hare is so pleased to see her new relatives!! I went to Milton Keynes today
, and instead of an Easter Egg, I chose the Tilda book, 'Crafting Springtime Gifts'. I definitely recognised the lovely little creatures in there, and would like to make a rabbit for Aaliyah at some time!

Enjoy your easter weekend, hun!!

P.S. Do you use linen, or cotton for the animal bodies?

Umm and the homemade lemon curd looks so yummy.

Happy Easter,

I truly love your Hare, she is gorgeous. I'd not know where to start making something like that. Oh, and lemon curd............I'm on my way round! My absolute fav, I could eat it with a spoon!

Do the hards in pots have bodies? They must be slightly out of proportion with the heads if so. I really like the pics in this particular blog and hope the lemon curd will taste as good as it looks.

Hares and lemon curd - two of my favourite things. Not to be confused with a hair in my lemon curd - that would go under 'least favourite things'!
