Easter Eggs

I'm making some easter decorations at the moment. I can only blame the weather for that :P Garden looks lovely and I can hear birds singing all day long.

I still have few to do, my crafty cupboard is at the minute in a right mess :P

New project - 55 Xmas Balls to knit

Finally I received this gorgeous book! Honestly I'm not a knitter, couldn't even remember how to cast on...knitting with two needles is quite complicated for me...knitting with 5 needles - a disaster...but after one evening managed to get it right...I think.
Recently I'm in love with Scandinavian Xmas decorations, that's why when I spotted on sale Arne & Carlos 55 Xmas Balls To Knit - coudn't resist it. Even very basic knowledge of knitting wouldn't stop me - good we've got place like you tube ;p
Tortie wanted to help me, but instead of holding the needles she concentrated on the yarn

New toy and small table runner

My new toy finally arrived :DFirst there was a fight, who will be in charge of the new sewing machine ;)

Obviously I won. I made these crochet eggs last year and up to now wasn't sure what to do with them. New machine solved the problem. I've made small runner for Easter (I know outside it's freezing and I'm thinking about Easter, something is really wrong with me )

I know, you'll think I'm crazy, but I already started making Easter decorations :p
