#84 Easter Treats :)

I hope you all enjoyed your extended weekend and haven't eaten too many eggs!

Luckily for me I only had 1 from my boss at work and me and David shared another so thankfully I didn't O.D. on chocolate!

Yesterday was the first day since Ash Wednesday I had crisps, I have to say I am very proud of myself for lasting all of lent without them! Then, when I did have some I didn't especially enjoy them all that much! I guess crisps might be a rarer part of my diet from now on, which is a good thing!

I received some goodies this week, first I got two lots of hand dyed fabric from Crafty Kitten, I couldn't decide which to buy so have ended up getting both, I have the Disney Princess Pattern in mind for one of these and then depending on how much is left I may end up using the other for a Pride and Prejudice pattern I have too :)

Fairy Wings
Pansy Impressions

I have used the pictures from Crafty Kittens website, as I can't get pictures to do the fabric justice!

I'm also VERY tempted by the new limited edition April fabric which appeared on the site today, someone restrain me - please!

Also today David was ever so kind and bought me a chart, since he didn't get me an Easter Egg he said I can have a chart instead!

I decided on Dwarven Leader by Paine Free Crafts. I am loving all the Hobbit/Lord of the Ring patterns that are appearing recently, but it will be while until this one gets started.

Sadly, I haven't got any stitching done this weekend. Saturday I wasn't feeling so well, I slept until 7pm!! I guess I needed it, but still it seems like a waste of a day.

At least the clocks went forward for us in the UK yesterday, more daylight in the evening mean easier stitching when I get home from work - hooray!


  1. Such sweet material..
