Easter plans

We get an extra long Easter break this year, and I have plans to achieve great things, including:


  • Lots of cuddles with the wee birthday Bear and quality time with Daughter1

  • Lots of cuddles with ma minette and quality time with Daughter2

  • Seam my purple cardi – a marinating, almost finished WIP which should have been my cardi for last winter (or was it the one before?) – it would be great to have it ready to wear this winter

  • Finish Nutkins – I'm up to heel on sock 2, so it is within the realms of possiblity to get it finished

  • Finish current beret – currently about half way there

  • Make a bit of progress on my Tangled Yoke which is supposed to be my new cardi for this winter (ahem)




  • Sew a top – I'm trying out a new pattern with stash fabric to see if it suits – I’m hoping the pattern is a winner, and just right for under a cardi for my winter work wardrobe – that is, if I ever get any cardies finished

Also on the list:



  • Avoid chocolate

  • Bake some Easter bread (any recommendations for a great recipe for something special?)

  • Lunch and spin with my lovely spinny friends

  • Listen to Juliet Stevenson read Charlotte Bronte’s sumptuous words in Jane Eyre

  • Start watching The Tudors from the very beginning

  • Enjoy the autumn sunshine on bushwalks with the dogs

Hmmm, it’s only 5 days off work. I wonder how much I will get done?

What are your Easter plans?

Sadly, we do not get a long weekend in the U.S., but I am expecting to be let out of work early on Friday. I am going camping here and hope to view fabulous spring wildflowers in Anza Borrego State Park.
Photos next week!
