Easter weekend comes with an excuse to make little 'springtime' themed gifts for Joshua, and luckily today, we had dry enough weather (this morning anyway!) so that I could hide a few little things around the garden for him to find.
I hid these little creatures -
Joshua was delighted to find them! (The birdie is from this tutorial on Attic 24 blog, the rabbit is my own design and the lamb is Tilda, both of which you can read more about in my previous post)
A few weeks ago I gave my mum this old copy of Mollie Makes magazine and asked her to make some of the crochet carrots -
She enjoyed making them so much she carried on with some others (using free tutorials online) and ended up with this lot of fruit and veg -
I also left these around the garden for Joshua to find! There's pumpkin, pear, turnip, tomato, carrots and radishes.
My mum also gave Joshua a set of cute books about 'Gossie' and even managed to crochet him a Gossie of his very own -
So cute! Joshua got him yesterday and insisted on taking him to bed last night too.
My other half also gave me some lovely flowers today -
And whilst it was dry and bright outside I also managed to pot on some of the beans I planted a few weeks ago,
And I've also made a hot cross bun loaf...
So all-in-all, it's turned out to be a nice weekend of treats for us all :)
