Pillow l♡ve

My pillow collection is growing. It feels so homey to have these pillows thrown on our sofas. They are loved by everyone in the house. Including the cats.

The one to the left in white, pink and blue is hand quilted and she has a friend but she is still waiting for the last stitches to be done.  The crochet doily pillow is a thrifted doily sewn on to a white pillow case. SO dead simple but gorgeous. The stripy patchwork pillows where made last summer for our bedroom, but they kind of live everywhere in the house depending on who is taking them out on a date and where...

I particularly adore my latest addition, the scrappy pillow with the denim border. It is so so me. And I have lots of scraps left to make more.


I am waiting with anticipation for some family members to arrive. I have taken time off to just hang out. I am going to do these patchwork Easter eggs that I did last year with the kids. Paint eggs of course, have BBQ dinners, crochet and chat in the sun and hang out in the garden. I amgoing to have an Easter egg hunt, we will eat lots of sweets. I am also having quite a few glasses of cheap nice bubbly wine and I've stocked up on my favorite nibbles.

What about you guys. Up to anything fun this Easter? Any special walking plans? I might be a bit quiet for a while so where ever you are, what ever you will do I wish you all a

HAPPY EASTER!

    du är bara lite snabbare än mej.
