elephant and mermaid brooches and checked out patterns for chickens and rabbits.
Armed with my 10cm knitting needles and my basket of oddments of wool, I set about making some little things to add to small presents for Easter Sunday. We were invited to my Adelaide daughter's house. There would be four children and five adults in addition to us. We had modest Easter eggs for the children.
The other two adults got a tiny chicken and a tiny fish.
I used safety pins stitched on the back since I didn't have brooch fittings on hand over the long weekend.
I did try an Easter bunny - but wasn't happy enough with the result to make more of them. Lucky Mochi Rabbit accompanied my grandson's Easter eggs.
I added jars of my Quince Jelly to the adults' chickens and a few extra bits for the hosts.
Mad? I think maybe.
My favourite; the fish. I should team some up with the mermaid!
