Happy Easter

 Happy easter everyone, I hope you are having a nice break. I am certainly making the most of my 4 days off work. I have been sewing up a storm and working on my latest designs,
My good friend Nicky and I decided to do a little easter swap with each other.  These are the gifts I made for Nicky. I love Buntings so I thought this mini easter bunting was just so cute, I love the little bunnies on the fabric which is from Bunny hill.
 I had to make a bag to put Nicky's easter eggs in so I made this one with the same fabric, I think it turned out pretty well. Its actually a Gailk pan pattern but I changed the front.
 Nicky's gift hasn't arrived yet but thats Ok, I'll have it next week I'm sure and I can enjoy easter a bit longer. Last Year Nicky made this cute little bunny so he is resting in my Greengate egg cup on my kitchen dresser.
 Last week I went to Melbourne with my best buddies Cathy, Meredith, Alex and Kate.  We went to the Quilt Fair and  we had the best time even though Jetstar delayed our flights both ways. I found some beautiful Side walk fabric by Riley Blake that I had to have, you know when you see something and you think --- oh yes this is coming home with me,  that how I felt when I saw this range. I haven't got a plan for it yet but thats Ok, I'll just enjoy looking  at it for awhile.
 Then I found some Tilda fabric and you know I felt the same way about this range so I had to buy that as well. We only had carry on luggage but I squeezed it in. In the evening we met up with our good friends Jan and Lorraine for dinner. It was a wonderful day.
Now the cold weather is upon us  my husband bought us a fire for outside, why I'll never know as I won't be sitting out on the patio when its cold enough for a fire, Must be a man thing I reckon. It does look nice though so as long as he's happy, we all are. lol.

Enjoy the rest of easter and I hope you find some sewing time.

Your gifts for Nicky are lovely, Leanne. I just love the fabric you have used. Lovely purchases. I didn't make it to AQC. What a pity. We may have been able to meet in person. Maybe next time you are over. The fire will be nice ambiance for when you are entertaining!

That pretty Easter bag is gorgeous, with the bunnies on it! I am sure your gift will be in the mail soon! It's frustrating how the much anticipated parcels seem to take the longest! Enjoy the outdoor fire- it sure looks inviting!

Love the Bunny Hill fabrics you showed! I knew I had 2 charm packs here of BH (plus what is left of another) so I had to go look and see if any are the same. Mine are different though. They use such pretty colours in their collections. xx debbie

I absolutely love my gorgeous Easter gifts, they have been much admired over Easter at my house, so Thanks again! I really hope your parcel gets there SOON! Your fabric purchases are awesome, I see some great pretties in that pile too. The fire looks fantastic, it looks the part for sure....
