Is it now working????......

Oh my goodness after the dreadful post I last did, I am surprised to see you all here again.  I had so much colour and lots of Easter bunnies planned...darn blogger played up and I could not do anything on my iPad then :(. It stopped my from publishing my post with pictures or photos...and as its the most basic form of upload I cannot change font or colours either!  So it's only natural I feel sad about the content I could of had...

By all accounts a lot of you liked what I had done.... I am pleased you all saw the funny side!!  

I hope blogger is finished having a major hiccup as I would like to put my photos in!! Ha ha what have I been doing...

I would like to firstly show you the stitch I had done that a lot of you thought was an Easter egg or an igloo! Ha ha 

This is what it was.... What you remember...

And this is what it turned into...

Then I stitched this.....

And you guessed it...I joined them together,,.....see for the Halloween ornie blog (organized by Jo) March was owl, and April is tombstone.  So I thought I would kill the bird with the same stone....I think that is the saying?? Ha ha

Yes this....

I think it cute.....the place I found it from hmmm what seems a while ago now, is no longer running.  I checked the links and none work, so sorry :(. It did not take me long to stitch... 

Ooooooh must share an Easter treat my parents got me.....I must explain first.  Well I don't like dried fruit, none of it....sultana, currents, mixed peel....EWE!!! Yuck!!  And every year I miss out on the hot cross buns... I love the smell but don't like them due to the fruit.  This year my parents found something TOTALLY amazing....and I mean AMAZING!! 

Chocolate hot cross buns....

Look!! So exciting....

Not a piece of dried fruit in sight!! Ha ha 

I tasted them.....hmmmmm Han tasted them...ha ha she did not like them!  I tried them and it felt like something was missing.... Just not right....

Then I had a thought.....

Your right....I put cheese on each half and mmmmmm so so so yummy!!! Ha ah a

Whilst we are talking about Easter....this is what my parents brought Han....

That is it for about Easter! Ha ha 

Oh yes.... I wanted to share something else rather awesome with you all.... Ha ha I think this is brilliant!! Well even though I am just laying in my bed my darn sewing scissors keep going missing.... So I came up ith this....

That's right....a scissor holder! Ha ha I know my bionic leg and it's harness seems a little excessive.....oh but totally viable!

I belong to The Random Acts of Kindness blog and group..... A wonderful group of people.  A shot while ago I popped in there and the love,y ingrid...Mii was holding a giveaway.  It was for something that she bought, new, still in package..... And as she was already stitching on black fabric already could not bring herself to stitch the design she was giving away.  I did offer if I won to stitch it and send it her back as its part of a set, but the love,y Mii could not dream of it.  So I added my name to the list, hoping to stitch the stunning design.  And as she explained it cost over £40 when she bought it.....a design way out of my price bracket!! So it would be a real treat ....

Guess what.......I WAS CHOSEN!!!!! Eeeeeeeeeeeeekkkkkkkk!!!!!!

Thank you so so much ingrid, Mii :)

Here is the package that arrived today...

A special treat.... A wonderful stitched pillow, adorable.

Back... So pretty....

And inside the large tissue...... The design....

All the colours come pre-sorted.....but I have to do it my way!! Ha ha

Then I started to stitch...... Well I could not wait to start....

Not that you can see it, but it is black fabric....

Here is where I finished this evening.... I think if you look closer, or with a squint eye it looks like a bunny..... Smile, nose, eye....and ears... Even a tail! Ha ha  I know I am crazy right!!??

Oh yes..... I think Han got these when she went out with the Red Cross Lady.... How adorable are they?! Super cute!!

It's a big carrot..

With tiny tiny carrots inside!! Adorable.... The only thing, they tasted like orange!! Yuck! Yes that's right I dislike orates too! Ha ha 

Posted them as they are so adorable, even if I don't like them!! Jon ate them!! 

Well that about wraps things up for now....I am going to try and publish this post now....

If you get this post and it has no photos then OMG!! Not sure what I am going to do.

Hope you all enjoyed the Easter blog hop.... I like hop hop hopping about .... It's fun!

Happy stitching or creating to you all....

Smiles for your day...




  1. iPad and Blogger don't always play nicely together - I can't comment or reply to them at all unless I fire up the computer. Cute finish - I'm glad the pictures came through!

  2. I use an iPad too and Blogger is pretty basic; no fancy stuff. I see eyes and a mouth on the bunny, mostly just a pink blob! Nice gifts from Ingrid and the new start is looking great.

  3. I do not have an Ipad thankfully.
    Loads of stitching going on here.
    I gave up chocolate, Pepsi and sweet roles for Lent, tomorrow after mass oh yes chocolate and I will reunite.

    Happy Easter

  4. The range of hot cross buns here seems to be getting larger each year...this year my son and his gf found double chocolate, dates and toffee, nutella, and good old fruit! Too much choc for me!! I am not a fan of dark chocolate but love white!! Interesting you put cheese on yours!! Now your shape makes sense!! Lol! Well done to win that amazing cross stitch..I hope you really enjoy it. Love the scissor holder!!

  5. I totally see the bunny! Congrats on winning that's a great prize! I don't like dried fruits either with the exception of raisins. But I love oranges. And some orange flavored candy. The problem with candy is I usually don't eat it unless it's chocolate. And by usually I mean never unless I'm really really craving it LOL

  6. You have photos again! Love the bunny Mii stitched for you. Her finishing is always perfect. Lovely kit also, I'm glad to see you're stitching it right away!
    I had a chocolate hot cross bun last year and loved it but with cheese on?! You are crazy. I like your cute bionic leg scissor holder too.
    Happy Easter and hope you feel better soon xx

  8. Wow, aren't you lucky to receive such a beautiful gift...:) Can't wait to see your progress with it - I bet you'll be racing through it with your stitching speed!

  9. Happy Easter Jacquie, Jon and Han!
    Such a precious bunny from Ingrid. And her gift of the kit! Wow! Good for you starting it right away. How gorgeous it will be!

  10. Happy Easter! Lovely gift you got! Those chocolate hot cross buns look yummy. X

  11. You put CHEESE on your chocolate buns? I'm sorry, I must confiscate the rest to prevent such a crime happening again! I love your giant carrot filled with tiny carrots even if they did taste of orange. I also love chocolate orange so maybe I should confiscate them too.
    Lovely gift from Mii, she really is the most generous and lovely person. I can see the bunny in your start too.

  12. Happy Easter to you Jon and Han

  13. Chocolate cross buns - brilliant! I must make some... I love chocolate I must admit. I hope you can finish stitching peony before your strawberry thiefs arrive. Last time I've checked they were in San Francisco. (If you click on the tracking link you can see where the package is - awesome journey!) Have a wonderful Easter dear friend!

  14. Love your bionic scissor holder. Where did your family find the bee hive chocolate? My son keeps bees and I would love to know!

    1. Oh in a shop in England called M&S or Marks and Spencer's..... Only the best for Han!! Ha ha well half the problem is that she does not like Cadburys chocolate!

  15. Love your scissor holder, the package/winnings - so well deserved, Jacquie! Love your owl and RIP. Adorable!! Hope you had a lovely Easter.

  16. Love your little owl! Congrats on your win - it is lovely!

  17. I LOVE that wonderful beehive!! What a darling piece of chocolate! too cute
    I saw hot cross buns here in the US--but not chocolate ones!
    You have gotten a lot of stitching done! I really like the Halloween stitch!
    Your gifted bunny is so precious--and you'll enjoy stitching that beautiful flower!
    I hope you're feeling better!

  18. I guessed correctly, it had to be Halloween. What a sweet finish!!
    Chocolate buns and cheese.... What a weird combination! Well it had to be you, fusion cooking :D
    Nice to see you've already started the peony. You're right, it does look like a rabbit at the moment!

  19. I would of never guessed a tombstone!
