I think Autumn has finally decided to arrive here, just in time for Easter. We are still having warm days but the nights are much cooler and that is delightful. No sign of leaves changing colour however.

A small candle mat has been completed for Easter. I am running out of places for display so it had to be small.

It is from a kit and pattern by Bareroots.

I have limited the Easter display to the sideboard for this year.

A few wooden ducks have joined the bunnies, and of course there are chocolate bunnies, bilbies and eggs.

I recently found this lovely set of tins and thought it could be part of the fun.

I am continuing my push to work on my crochet skills and these blocks are the start of a small throw rug. This is about a third of what I need. I am keeping it simple and mastering a step at a time before moving on to new stitches.

Easter is a 4 day weekend for most people here in Australia, so I do hope everyone has a lovely break. And I hope the Easter bunny treats you well.

Cheers, Karen

    I’m not sure just how it happened, but Easter managed to get by me this year. I did hang one quilt for the quilting girls, but that was about it. I love all your bunny wabbits! ;-)
