SPRING HAS SPRUNGLED!

Well, Easter is on its way and the weather here at the moment is like mid summer. How wonderful is that!!  Over the past couple of weeks I've been knitting like crazy, getting jumpers made for the Tiddlers, knitted Jelly Baby dolls for our two new arrivals to the family, Summer and Talon, and an arun for me, because although the weather has been spectacular for this time of the year, I tend to err on the side of caution and keep my winter woolies handy - I've been caught out too many times before.  Also I've found, when taking the Tiddlers to school in the morning, it's still mighty parky. brrrrrrrrr.

 
But now the time has come to get the Easter goodies ready for the holidays.  I needed something cute for wrapping creme eggs and this little box is just the thing.  I made them in pink, yellow and blue and they are going down a storm.  They are so easy to make and the kids just love them

SOOOO CUTE!

The only problem I have with these little darlings, is I have to rob my stash of creme eggs to fill them - doh! 
Hopefully someone will share with me at Easter. * wicked grin*

SAINT DAVID AND THE LADYBIRDS

It's the first of March, the sun is shining, I'm surrounded by daffodils and it's St. David's Day.


So to all my welsh friends -
Dydd Gwŷl Dewi Sant hapus !

I do love the spring, summer is only just around the corner and there is so much to look forward to ....... wonderful!

I have been venturing out into the garden over the past week, as the weather has been BEAUTIFUL, wherever I've turned I've been finding ladybirds. Lots of ladybirds!  At first I thought that as I've been cutting down trees, I've disturbed them and I've been trying to find them new homes. But as the week progressed  the ladybirds were still around in abundance, so I've put it down to it being so warm.  It's lovely to see them but I'm just hoping they don't get caught out by a cold spell.

Paula says I should have gone for the Crafty Ladybird theme rather than The Crafty Pink Butterfly - it's a thought.
