April Smalls

I changed all my cross-stitch smalls over today, I’ve got all my spring and Easter ones out, it almost doesn’t seem real that it’s nearly Easter already, but next weekend it’ll be here! It was nice to rummage through my box of smalls and find all the ones with cute bunnies on (of which there’s quite a few!!) and pretty spring ones.

Firstly I made sure my two cross-stitch boxes had the right seasonal side on display, one is a Betsy Morgan etui box, the other is the Zoe box by Faby Reilly. The two great tits I stitched for a wedding anniversary card last year complete the back shelf.

I then arranged my other smalls on the wooden dish in front…

The four blue ones at the front of geese and ducks are pretty old, they were actually bibs and nappy pin holders from when my children were babies – so that’s about 25 years old! A couple of years ago I decided to cut up the bibs and enjoy them as smalls.

The cute rabbit holding a daisy is by Dany Chevallier, it’s called Ambience Printemps, there’s another one in the series which is on my to do list. April is from the Joyful World SAL by the Snowflake Diaries and the Hello Spring one is by Il Est Cinq Heures.

There’s quite a fluffle of bunnies there, I count six rabbits and five geese!

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!
