Easter cards

It’s midnight but I thought I’d write this now. I can’t sleep. I have a bad cold and a horrible cough.

These are three Easter cards. I started with the one to the right, then the one in the middle. Tonight I finished the one to the left. These are from a company called Svarta Fåret (which is Swedish for The Black Sheep).

The cross stitch kit had all you needed for these cards, including white cards and white envelopes.

I didn’t glue or tape the pictures to the cards yet. I just put them loosely inside. I need to cut them a little. Maybe I need to iron too.

My favorite is the one in the middle, with the hammock. But they are all cute in their own way.

I’ll work on some knitting tomorrow (well, actually today, as it is past midnight…)

Just had a terrible cough attack. I could hardly catch my breath. I’m drinking lots of water and have cough medicine too. Will try to get a little sleep now. Probably by sitting in bed. Can’t lay down.

Crocheted chicken

Happy Easter to everyone who celebrates Easter! 😀

I didn’t have time to make any Easter crafts (although I would have wanted to). I’ll do some later and save them for next year…

Anyway, the little crocheted chicken is of course a kind of Easter craft, but I will let him stay in the room all year. He doesn’t have to go into the box with all the other Easter decorations. 😉

I crocheted him freehand, using no instructions. I struggled with the feet, and tried several different types. But I finally ended up with flat ovals.

I have some different colored googly eyes, so I decided to use yellow googly eyes for the chicken.

The body and the head is in one piece, so it looked like it had a long neck. That’s why I decided to add the bow. It’s just a strip of felt that I tied around his neck.

Well, I’ll see what I’ll do next. I still have some unfinished projects that I should make some progress on… But now it’s very late and I need to sleep.
