Well I don't know about you but I had a lovely time over the Easter break. It was cold but we had plenty of sunshine, enough to entice us into the great outdoors for a couple of hours. I am so fortunate to have this just a couple of miles down the road at Kenfig nature reserve & Sker beach.
The views are fab from here - you can clearly make out the North Devon coast across the sea from one angle, and in this direction the Gower coast reaches out across Swansea Bay. You can also see a wide range of bird-life amongst the dunes and pools.
|Esther & Ernie - I think they've hit it off :)|
And inspired by seeing all those birds, I couldn't resist a bit of fun making up a couple of these cute Easter Chickens. These were designed by Janice Anderson and the pattern is available as a free download on Rowan's website. I hope you agree they make a lovely couple :)
Speaking of birds, I've finished knitting my Birdy Cushion and it's all sewn up. The cushion is reversible with a random stripe back - I'll show you this soon once I've sewn the buttons on.

This is made up of a number of birdy blocks, and we'll be having a go at making these blocks at my Intarsia Unravelled Workshop on 4th May at Hazel Court, Sketty Park Swansea. What's more, those who attend will receive a complementary copy of the Birdy Cushion pattern. Places are limited to ensure a quality workshop experience and pre-booking is essential. What's more I've introduced an early bird discount of 10% for those who book before 13 April.
I'm really looking forward to seeing some of you there :)
