This week, we have enjoyed a harvest of home grown stuff 🙂   Firstly, there was the cress grown in an eggshell, with face expertly drawn by Waif:

On the sewing front, I spent a busy evening sewing a stuffed fabric Easter egg.  I will not be posting a picture!!  But here’s where I got the idea:  http://retro-mama.blogspot.com/2009/03/easter-is-in-air.html.  It took me about three hours, mainly because I got halfway through and ran out of bobbin thread, and then for the life of me couldn’t work out how to rethread the damned thing (it was late!)  Anyhow, I finished it in the end and was most proud, because it’s the first thing I’ve ever sewn all on my own without any help 🙂  But I will be making a Morsbag next…or maybe some beanbags for the boys…or just something not as small and fiddly and curvy as an egg anyway…
