Spring has sprung!

Hello again! Spring has definitely arrived here in N. Ireland with gloriously WARM sunshine!
I've been sewing some but the fresh air is calling me outside and I think I'll have to tackle the garden pretty soon!

Here are some pictures of a few hastily arranged spring things I've put together and sewn in the past couple of days.

I used a freebie pattern by Cathy of Snugglebug Blessings, for this little bunny and just cross stitched SPRING on it with some spring motifs

And I finished up Primitive Betty's free Easter pinkeep~

I placed some little itty bitty x stitched motifs on my tree~

Below are three little Woodlander bunnies I used to collect - don't know what happened to the rest of them!

Meet Harvey my latest creation. He's made from a smoky brown plush - sorry about the light in these photos~

And last but not least, this day 10 years ago my sweet little boy arrived! How that decade has disappeared! So HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVID!

And where does David want to go for his birthday? McDonald's!!! So that's where we're headed now - at least he's pretty easy pleased! Nothing fancy for him!

Have a wonderful week everyone! I'm so pleased you came by! Thanks to for leaving a comment,I so appreciate your thoughts and interest!
Best wishes
