babs, cushions & creme eggs

Happy Easter!

from me & my (easter) bunny babs.

Babs is resting in front of my newly finished cream coloured crochet cushion (oh i do love a liitle bit of alliteration), i love it, my cushion, it has a bobble trim and whenever i look at it, it makes my heart sing. I do love finishing off a project (and blimey do i have lots of projects to finish off!), such a great feeling of completion and satisfaction and good things like that.

And yes, babs has managed to acquire a creme egg, not very naturopathic i grant you, but i’ve heard (!) that they are quite tasty, as long as you dont get a mouthful of foil along with your choc and fondant. All in moderation now babs, be a good bunny.

It was a spectacular craftanoon, 224 beautiful crocheted hearts were made and joined in bunting which was gifted to Char and which will hopefully bring joy when it decorates her hospital bed during her bone marrow transplant next month, from which, I am so absolutely very very sure that, she will arise all well and mended.
