Mixtures

It's been another busy week in the Pickle-Lily house - a mix of  school stuff for me, dancing for Pickle-Lily ( four times a week at the moment) , cadets and a birthday for Pickle (teenage son) and work for Mr P-L. It does mean that not much crafting has been happening here, and my fingers are feeling restless. One thing I know I will do this week is visit the other blogs on Handmade Monday. Pickle-Lily and I have a book to look forward to as we won a giveaway on Wendy's blog, as part of 100 Handmade Monday's. Thank-you Wendy!
I have done a lot of mixing today, as the bottomless pit (son) is home all day, so we have fruit tea bread, lemon drizzle and flapjacks filling the tins at the moment.
How long will these last?
Pickle-Lily is busy making nautical bunting
Ironing to be done
and the boys are watching the rugby, so quite a laid back day today.
When I have had a chance to knit, I've started making bunnies again. I use James Brett merino yarn that is just so soft, and this year we have yellow hoodies as well as lilac and green. I've also made some new dolly mixtures in pinks and reds, with heart fabric skirts and a heart on the their top.

The final mix was for the winners of the mini giveaway, a heart kit and an Easter egg kit
and the winners are

Twinkle Star for the Easter egg kit

and Ali for the hearts kit.

Congratulations!
