Meet Lucie the Goosie and Harriet the Hare...

Two new members of the family have moved in with us. I'm pleased to introduce Lucie the Goosie and Harriet the hare.

Apart from Christmas I don't usually decorate according to the seasons, but this year I decided I would like an easter/springtime display. I found a beautiful book called Crafting Springtime Gifts by Tonne Finnanger and couldn't resist the cute bunnies, hares, geese and chickens inside.

Harriet and Lucie weren't very happy about sharing the limelight so here they are on their own.

The book shows a flock of geese stuck all together in a basket so I think I'll make some friends for Lucie and do the same. There are also some other beautiful ideas in the book which I'm planning to make for an easter display.

Now an apology. Before Christmas I was lucky to win one of the prizes in a give-away by the very generous Simone and it's taken me until now to thank her for it on my blog. I did thank her personally though.
I won this pattern for a beautiful Melly and Me bag and some fabric. One I've finished a couple of works in progress and get going with the bag.

Many thanks Simone.
Bye for now, Maria.

First I was thrilled to see flowers on your blog banner. I so tired of our snow. LOVE your Easter cuties. Absolutely darling. That is a great bag. I have the pattern and made it once in black and yellow polka dots!

Your hare and goose are great fun. I've got several of her books, not that one though, but haven't yet got round to making anything from them. Once I get caught up I'll have to have a go.

What lovely Easter decorations. :-) I like that book too. On year I made a litter of those rabbits and called them the Garden Bunnies- they had different linen outfits and flower names. -gifts for friends with Summer birthdays.

What a lovely prize from Simone.

So love it - can I tempt you to make another one and we do a swap of your choice????

Oh boy Easter - I cannot even get ny head past this week. You are so organised. I better come up with some idea for the easter gift for the class mates (sigh things we do!).

I love the names you chose for your goose and hare. The are absolutely adorable! I haven't seen that Tilda book yet. Might go search for it.
Hope that one day you will be able to make the bag! Good luck.
