April and swap gifts

A new Month....


Brings a new page....
and a new saying....


Here are he gifts I recieved from my spring swap partner Chris.
She made me a beautiful bag. It's perfect to hold my crochet or sewing work
so I can take it along where ever I go.
- Thanks Chris! -

swap gifts for me from Chris
I love the fat quarters and the gorgeous tulips card.
This is what I made for Chris. It's a Spring chicken egg warmer.

Spring chicken

I made one a decade ago and ust recently re-found the pattern again.

Spring chicken
I think it will look lovely on the Easter breakfast table.
So I made one for me too..

Only a few days until Easter and despite all good intentions
to make decorations myself...nothing to show you so far.
So I think I'll  put my good intentions in the closet for next year
and go visit the Hema for something nice, right now!

Haha, onder de lantaarn is het stikkedonker zeggen ze toch altijd?! Ik ken het hoor, meestal heb ik wel van alles opgestuurd voor swaps en zit ik zelf nog zonder decoratie. Nou ja, dan is de Hema er goed mee.

ik heb bij de hema een lief paastasje gekocht waarin mijn handwerk precies past.
prettige paasdagen!

Hi! My name is erica. Would you be my friend? said...

I love the chicken! I'm very fond of chickens and have a decent number of chickens decorating my house.

I know all about intentions. Right now I just feel like sitting around and doing nothing! :)

Hope you had a nice trip!
