Easter Week

Easter week started with my promise to myself to have a sort out in my Happy Room.
"Stuff" seems to have a life of its own and filled every drawer, space, shelf and table.
I started with a drawer full of odds and ends and kits for everything from Christmas decorations to penguins! Most will go to a table top sale next week, some to the bin and some to a charity shop.
First empty drawer

Stuff everywhere, no space to even cut out or sew!
Two days this week the granddaughters came to stay, so we made Planners from card, paper and stickers. Both girls did really well and the time passed far too quickly. I have a Happy Planner of my own and it was lovely to share a hobby.

A brisk walk along the side of the Brampton railway

Chilly but a nice walk to the mosaic 

With Easter around the corner they made Easter baskets for all the family
After the hectic pace with the girls we had a peaceful day today. It was spent working on more tidying in the Happy room, followed by a trip to Billing, and walk around the lake.

Bit of a nip in the air, but at least the sun is shining

Lots of narrow boats at the moorings

Mummy swan had even used beer cans and plastic in her nest building

Lastly we visited the garden centre and bought ten new Shubunkin fish for our pond
it was hard to take their photo before releasing them in the pond.
I'd like to wish you all a very happy Easter.

Another hat

Another hat, hot off the needles! The pattern was free on Ravelry and designed by Anne Mizoguchi. I used double knit special by Stylecraft...
