Easter Biscuits

Today I made a whole load of Easter biscuits using the same recipe I had used to make Valentine biscuits. If you want to try making these the recipe is on my earlier blog post in February this year.

I used some lovely little cutters my daughter bought me,including eggs, chicks and bunnies. I am really pleased with how they turned out. Apparently they taste good too, my hubby just had to sample them. Ha Ha Ha.

This Little Piggy

Having recently knitted some little sheep it may seem the next logical step would be to try knitting some other animals. Well that's exactly what I decided to do. I found this fabulous book by Sarah Keen 'Knitted Farm Animals'


I decided to start with knitting the pig, he seemed very cute, and the pattern fairly easy to follow.It took about three days to complete the little piggy pal and I have got to say I am quite pleased with the results. My next animal is to knit is to be  a cow. After that I might try knitting a goat

I think he or she is just so cute.

Baa, Ram, Ewe and Lambkins

I have been into knitting and sewing recently as you may have noticed by my blog posts. I'm afraid the scrapbooking is getting very behind but what the heck I will catch up.....eventually. Anyway thought I'd share these very cute little lambs I have knitted. 

I got this free little kit with a magazine to knit one little sheep I then  added some oddments of wool I already had and made four sheep in all. I think they are so cute and very cuddly. They remind me of Shaun the sheep from old Wallace and Gromit fame.
