Easter Week and a Giveaway

Here are some pictures of our easter garden........i'm glad to say that luckily the sun came out and we were able to have the much looked forward to egg hunt................
 ...............i loved the beatrix potter egg hunt signs as soon as i saw them.... and it was fun planting them in the garden amongst the trees and flowers, next to the victorian glass cloche and the potting shed........
 .............the children thought it was fun too :)..............the eggs were dotted about all over the garden, the shiny foil they were wrapped in catching the sunlight..........the children had little tin easter buckets to collect them in.............
 ................the finale was them finding chocolate rabbits in the potting shed...................
 ..........i had some chocolate too ;) .....the picture top right shows some of my delicious truffles from my parents............and also a little garden inspired gift tag i made for the april issue of crafts beautiful magazine here.................
 ............ruby, the big bunny, had an egg too and also a brand new spring green dress for easter and some stripy grey and white leggings.............(she is much beloved and played with which is why she needed a new dress)............(the pattern for ruby is in my previous book, *simple sewn gifts* and i enlarged it to make this big bunny version)..............
 ...............she had a new hat too............this actually belonged to another toy but when we found it fitted ruby we just had to customise it for her with some ribbon, fabric flowers and buttons..............
.............being easter week, the three sugar bunnies also popped out for a while to join in........they are shown here with the hearts and flowers cushion, and all are featured in my new book, *pretty patchwork gifts*...........
............i have a signed copy of the book to give away and i thought it would also be a nice idea to give away a package of crafty trims and notions like some of those i used in the book .........
 ............things like the scissor charm, bird button, ribbons and embroidery thread and a fat quarter of my much treasured lecien flower sugar fabric............if you would like to enter this giveaway all you have to do is leave a comment on this post........if you are a follower and leave a second comment to let me know you will be entered twice :)........the giveaway will be open until april 15...................
.................thank you so much for dropping by to visit me here, it's always lovely to see you :)........i hope you have a good week and enjoy lots of happy crafty times............and plenty of sunshine too.......good luck in the giveaway................this week i am finishing my latest quilt so will be back to show you that as well as my new crochet.......................back soon xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Now I have seen your dolly quilt , I will have to make two of those as well. Thank you for a bright spot at the end of a busy day Glenda

Hi Helen, your garden is ever so lovely and those signs are very sweet. I have such fond memories of egg hunts in my Mammaw's backyard when I was little, with all my cousins, with the dyed eggs we made and the plastic ones my Aunt Dot would fill with money for us to find. Your stitching book is beautiful and what a generous, wonderful giveaway. Wishing you a great day. Tammy

What a stylish egg hunt :) My kids and a girlfriend (17 years x 2 and 15) all still wanted to hunt eggs from the Easter Bunny still but requested that I didn't hide them so hard as last year! It's a lovely tradition that I'm so glad we started. I'd say Happy Easter but feel I've missed the boat so Happy Spring!
