Easter

We spent Easter weekend in Dorset visiting my parents. Alice was home from Uni and is enjoying her Easter holidays at the moment. We have our school Easter break from the 4th April for two weeks. Despite the weather we had a lovely weekend and managed a couple of egg hunts with the National Trust at Lytes Cary Manor and Barrington Court, both near Yeovil. The weather was so cold and wet that I didn't take my camera so I took these photos with my mobile phone. (Sorry for the poor quality) Over the weekend I planned to knit myself a pair of socks but I changed my mind when I saw a pattern for a Leprechaun in a magazine. It was a perfect gift for my friend Debbie. Debbie had given me an Easter egg. On the previous Monday a couple of the 6th formers had come to school dressed as Leprechauns because the theme for St Patricks day was green clothing. However we all teased her that she was seeing things. I made him (Seamus) a speech bubble introducing himself and left him on her desk this morning. Seamus was a big hit with Debbie and he even brought Debbie to lunch to meet the other staff.




I am delighted that my Bunny, which I made for the Bunny Hop Bunny Swap which Lucy organised, has now arrived in Holland at Heleen's home. I can now show you a couple of photos I took of bunny before I sent her to Heleen, but I think Heleen's pictures are much better so pop over to her blog and have a look.

Pleased you had a good Easter Jane. Love the bunny you made - and the lovely one you received. Disappointed I missed out on that swap.
