As you can see I’ll mainly be trading in Hay-on-Wye this year!  Though of course I have an on-line shop too, so don’t worry if you can’t make it to any of the events listed above.

Is It Spring Yet?

I don’t know about you but I’ve had enough of winter.  It’s time for spring now surely!   My garden is starting to show signs of life so I’m feeling hopeful.

These daffodils do have flower buds hiding away in there somewhere.  Soon then….

As my first lot of craft markets for the year are coming up I’ve also been thinking about Easter, in preparation for this I’ve been busily making little nests for chocolate eggs to nestle in.  My two boys are hoping they don’t sell very well so that they get to eat the eggs – I’m wondering if there might be a couple left for me too!

The nests are adapted from a pattern I found on mooglyblog.com, I recommend you go and look if you enjoy all things crochet!

As well as these I found an adorable little pattern on lookatwhatimade.net (also a very fabulous blog) – little chicks!  I adapted the pattern slightly so that I could CE mark them successfully and added a version of the paisley wings from the larger bird.   They are so cute!!

Well they are the new items I’ve been making, I’ve also been replenishing my stock of amigurumi bunnies.  Keeping to a spring time theme, they’re all in delightful pastel shades!

Not to be outdone by the crochet, the sock bunnies have also requested an appearance – here they are:

I especially love the larger ones ears – they’re enormous!

I’ll be adding a few of my bunnies to my Folksy shop very soon, the ‘shop’ tab in the menu at the top of the page will take you right there.

All my nests, chicks and bunnies are looking forward to getting out and about, I have to say I am too.
