Easter Hols and a winner......

  




  










The Easter holidays have passed by in a flash.  

In the main each day has followed the same routine:

* Watching an early morning family movie... the concept of having a lie in hasn't yet been grasped by the younger generation

* Playing with hama beads...honestly I could get seriously addicted to them :: Edited 22nd April I forgot to say.......Pinterest is a great source for the Star Wars designs and the Rose design was taken from a cross stitch chart from 'Stitch and Sew Home by Eline Pellinkhof

* Eating Easter cornflake cakes.... we never need an excuse to make these

* Easter crafting...lots of Easter crafting

* Going for an afternoon stroll, bike ride or scoot.... sometimes round the block, sometimes across the fields and on Good Friday to one of our favourite country haunts

* A spot of gardening or general jobs around the house 

* I've even managed a bit of sewing....more of this next time

Happy Days!

  1. Your Easter weekend sounds perfect, a nice mix of inside and outside fun. I too love creating with the Hama beads - it's become an ongoing passion here! Your rose mat/coaster is beautiful, it reminds me of cross stitch. Have a great week. x

  2. Easter sounded perfect Sarah. For us this year it was a very quiet one. Both our sons and families went away. Happy for them but missed seeing them. However we chilled out and did whatever we pleased. So I managed some crafting. Your photos are lovely. Anne x

  4. Love all your pictures today, Sarah! I was especially interested to see the hama beads as the craze has just struck my grandchildren and I bought them some for Easter! (And thank you for the advice about patterns too!) Loved the blossom and the lamb picture is just the sweetest!
