Little Easter Nook

Here is the extent of my Easter decorating for 2010.

My super sweet next door neighbour Amanda gave us the little yellow rabbit candle, so I blew out the egg from three eggs and painted them in my water colour paints then placed them in this little basket with some raffia.

For this little corner I picked some yellow and white flowers from my back garden and used a little French egg cup as a vase and placed it next to my white bird.

This mirror is the first thing you see when you step into our lounge room so I wrote 'Happy Easter' with a little chick leaving an egg in my Chalk Pen.

And the pièce de résistance (NOT) is my first attempt at crocheting.
I made it last night and it is meant to be a little bunny.

I have been so inspired by my lovely friend Tina (Rubies Place) with all her beautiful crochet projects that I hunted around for my Grandma's crochet hook which I knew I had somewhere and I found my one and only ball of wool. I googled crocheting and after many false starts I got going and then didn't know what I was making.

Conversation with Glen last night:

Me: Look!!! I'm making something!!!
G: What are you making?
Me: I don't know, but it's something...
G: *smile*sigh*shake of head*
I decided to try and make my 'something' into a little bitty rabbit and do loops for ears. See how tiny it is it's about an inch. Oh well better luck next time :)

I will have to go up to the knitting shop up the road and buy some of the beautiful double yarn that Tina used in her latest project and maybe a 'How-To' book.

I think it's going to take me a loooong time to get up to Tina's standard but I will post some more of my comical attempts as they come about.

I hope you have a lovely Wednesday everyone,
