Happy Easter with an Exchange

 πŸ£πŸ°πŸ£πŸ°πŸ£πŸ°πŸ£ Happy Easter  🐣🐰🐣🐰🐣🐰🐣

Our decorations are up including the lovely cards we received today. 






I made a Simnel cake for my mum and stepdad, it has a layer of marzipan inside which you bake and then marzipan on top. The balls represent Jesus' disciples.

I have decorated our cork wreath that our daughter made us a few Christmases ago. I love being able to change it for the season/occasion.

Today is opening day for Needlecraft Haven's Easter Exchange. This year we made Easter cards and included thread to match, chocolate treats were optional. I made this card for Gill, I made it so it could later be used as an ornament. 



I received a beautiful card from Julie and some gorgeous threads, I felt very spoilt. Julie also included some yummy mini eggs, thank you Julie.


Time for Easter dinner soon, we're having a roast beef and I have made a creme egg cheesecake for dessert. It will just be the three of us but it's always nice to have a special dinner.

I hope you have all had a lovely Easter, hopefully soon we will be able to celebrate with family and friends

  8. I love your Easter trees, especially the twisty branch. The exchange was great too, it's so nice to have a pretty Spring display.
    The dessert looks great, I can't eat cheesecake so I'd just pick the Creme Eggs off the top LOL
