Deb at Paperturtle posted today about her Easter decorations.
We don't really go in for decorating for Easter here either, usually just a vase of daffodils on the table for the Easter Sunday dinner is as far as we go. But, Deb got me thinking, and in fact we do have another decoration which comes out at Easter and it is this...
I made the little girl out of Fimo and dressed her (she isn't the prettiest little girl I have ever seen, but I was pleased with her!). I then embroidered the tablecloth and also made the Simnel cake and the hot cross buns (also out of Fimo). The cards were created on the computer and the egg boxes were a cut out from the magazine. The grass was from Hugh's model railway!
I will have to see if I can find the photos of these and scan them in (before the time of digital camera) and then I will be able to share them with you.
When I had finished this teapot I sent a photo in to the magazine and was lucky enough to be published on their letters page!
