Easy Easter

Hi there, hope your enjoying your Easter weekend . I cannot believe how quick the months are flying by, and we have nearly done with April. It was my birthday on the 15th.What a lovely day I had. My hubby and daughter took me for a lovely picnic to celebrate. I really enjoyed my self, but not the getting older part of course!
 In fact we all have had a lovely week Me and my hubby have booked some time off from our jobs so we could all be off with our daughter what with the school holidays.
 The weather has been quite pleasant so we have been on walks to parks to woods and lastly to the beach .We have hung out in the garden, watched films and pretty much any thing we want. It,s been lovely having no time constraints. Time for a spot of baking...... a little crochet too.

 
I  learned a new stitch I have been wanting to have a go at loop stich for a while, thought it looked hard but is quite easy to do.
   Any way hope you all have a nice time getting together with family.Not too many easter eggs mind!!!

  5. Happy Birthday Joy!!! So nice to hear you've been enjoying some special time off with your hubby and daughter...and crochet! ;) That loopy stitch is so pretty, and so are your little squares. I love those sweet colors all wrapped up in white. Your cake looks totally yummy. I hope you ate more than just one piece...after all it was your birthday week, and that all calorie counting stuff is off on birthday weeks...at least in my world! Have a beautiful rest of the week sweetie! xoxo

  7. Belated birthday wishes to you! That loopy stitch is impressive. I too have seen it but never attempted to learn it thinking it was a complicated one.
