Lightweight knitting

As well as busily knitting 'warmer' type garments for our coming winter, I have managed to knit this breezy sarong in a fabulous yarn.
If a sarong is not required, this versatile little number can be worn as a wrap or shawl on a mild summer's evening.
I'll be listing this item in my other etsy shop, www.lainenbois.com

I've been quite busy leading up to and during the Easter break. A very special time of the year I believe,with many opportunities to grow as a person, especially spiritually.

Every two years my local Parish involves iteslf with the re-enactment of the Easter Story, enabling every local primary school aged child to be part of this story and to 'experience' the real meaning of Easter. Volunteers act out the story,do readings,physically create the required settings like caves,fields, tomb etc, and provide a little nourishment for the children.
My little part involved making the Easter cookies for the children:

Cooking aside, I've also just listed my latest creation with fabric: fabric brooches.
I've thoroughly enjoyed designing and making these and plan to make more in different colour themes. Here is my first in the Noir and gris series:

More to come!
