Not always about chocolate

Easter friends

Easter is next week, and it is time to look out my Easter decorations.  I have quite a few, collected over the years.   Some are ceramic, some are metal, some papier-mache and some glass.  I enjoy buying a new rabbit or egg each year – and usually these aren’t made out of chocolate!!

Eggs and Chickens

Some years ago I saw a lovely pattern by Marg Low of Marg Low Designs – it was of two fabric rabbits called “Oscar and Pip”.  I think I started them before Easter one year and finished them the following year – not because the pattern is difficult – but because I ran out of time to complete them by Easter and so I  put them away.

Easter RabbitsI also purchased a kit of fabric eggs by Marg too – called “Easter Treats” and these were fun to make as in the kit came some lovely buttons and braids.

Fabric Eggs

I love getting out my decorations at Easter time and trying to remember where they all came from – and like my Christmas ornaments, these ones are increasing in number too.  However, I am beginning to think – is Easter this year like Christmas of last – coming around far too fast? Where has the year of 2013 gone? it is travelling far too quickly for me!

  1. Your decorations are so pretty. The embellishments on the eggs are delightful. Thanks for the great ideas.

  2. I also adore decorating my house for Easter and I do love the idea of buying a new creation every year, so that it builds up. I may start today! – Suzy
