What have I been up to this April?

April has been a busy month for me! I have mostly been crocheting, gardening, school holiday day tripping, pattern writing, enjoying family birthdays, taking photos, celebrating Easter, cooking, baking and a bit of DIYing (if that's a word!). I haven't had time to sit down and blog properly so here is a quick, mostly visual, summary of what I've been up to.

I crocheted 2 baby cardigans!
This is the Callander Cardigan by Joanne Scrace 

The weather has been fab so we have been outdoors most days.
This would be an excellent photo shoot location.

(only my version is a monkey!)


Easter Sunday was also my birthday!
I made this Easter cake with swiss meringue buttercream icing!

Our homemade Easter tree

... and Easter Monday was my youngest son's birthday!
We planted out this old sink with flower seeds.

I celebrated 1 year with my crochet companion Jazz!

A mystery collaboration I am currently working on.
More details coming very soon!

I have fresh ideas for future blog posts and I will be back soon with more updates, but until then, happy crafting!
