Quick Crafty Easter

Just realised I haven't posted for over a week! So I'd better get a quick post in before we set off for a day out at the seaside - hurray... we're having a heatwave here in the UK! A couple of years ago it was snowing at Easter! What a strange climate we have - but always interesting!
We spent most of yesterday on my Mother's shady front porch watching the children play on the grass. Here is the youngest with the Purl Bee fingerpuppet bunnies I made her from this pattern. Quick, easy and very cute! And for the older girls I made some more bunny brooches from Jenny's cute pattern here.

And a few cards using the Papertrey Friendship Jar Spring Fillers - love that set!
Don't you think my little silver hen and chick is cute - a lovely charity shop find. Its a little box and the chick is the head of a tiny silver spoon. To hold salt for your soft boiled Easter breakfast egg perhaps? Not sure - but when I saw her I grabbed her quickly as I have a passion for hens and would love my own little flock one day.


  1. What a wonderful post, Ann! Here it is not so nice, but I know it will come; we just have to be a bit more patient. You always make the nicest things - love what you did for your family.

    I just got that PTI set, and you've given me some wonderful inspiration - thanks! Easter Blessings to you, my friend!

  2. Well you just brightened my morning with your adorable Easter projects, Ann! Unfortunately it's supposed to be rainy and cold here this Easter weekend, so we'll be moving everything indoors. Enjoy your weekend :)

  3. Ok, I want one of those finger puppet bunnies too now. How adorable are they??!!! Ann, your post today brought out the 8 year old in me. :o) And then you have those amazing cards!! Love how they just scream spring. Oh, yes, the silver hen and chick.... what a lovely find. You have all my support in getting your own little flock... that'd be wonderful. I can't think of anything cuter than baby chickies. :o)

    Sorry to hear about your icky weather. Don't send any my way, ok? hehee... just kidding. Have a wonderful weekend at the seaside!

  4. Oh I love your makes Ann, especially the little bunny tags. I see these things and never think of how to use them LOL!
    Thank you so much for my e-card. Wishing you a joyous Easter.

  5. Those finger puppets are so cute with the fluffy tails! Excellent cards! Enjoy your warm weather and thanks for your sharing the gardening pictures too. Have a very Happy Easter!
