A day of calm....

Last week was all about rushing and hassle, so it's lovely to be slowing right down today. We started the day with coffee and hot chocolate in our nearest market town. There just happened to be a tiny vintage fair taking place. We had a little mooch round, my sons doing their best to look politely interested. I only bought a £2 square of fabric, but I really enjoyed browsing.
Now we're home and lunch is being made for me. I've been finishing off making these patchwork eggs.

I bought a pack of scraps from Cambridge market last week and I wanted to put them to good use.

Wishing you all a relaxing day... and a Happy Mother's Day to my Mum....

  2. I LOVE these, I'm having a go at some myself on Tues at our Crafty Club, not sure if they will be quite as nice though! :) x

    1. Thanks Ada. I love doing these, I like to sit in front of the fire with all the scraps in a little heap..I'm sure yours will be wonderful, colourful retro eggs :)
      I bought the polystyrene eggs from The Works, which has some lovely Easter making bits and pieces.

  3. Its a great idea.I'm sure kids would love doing them, my grandchildren love doing gluing and sticking!
