... Back comes the resident kookaburra, of course. He even brought his best mate with him. They were probably snake hunting somewhere in the wilds. They looked a little hungry, so I guess they weren't too successful. No sympathy, boys!
My good friend Tracy of Hey Harriet suggested that instead of the usual boring old Easter Egg hunt, our grandchildren should show some initiative and embark on a snake hunt. Not!
In fact, now that the snake danger has passed, the tree outside my window has become alive with playful, chattering lorikeets, filling their little tummies with nectar from the eucalypt blossoms. Yum ... much better than those deadly snakes.
Speaking of yum, Mr Fudge arrived home from a day in the country with a dozen very large, very fresh eggs, and a load of figs just picked from the tree. I guess there will be lots of figgy tarts over the Easter holidays.
I had time to dash off one last sewing project before I shut up shop for the Easter break. The lovely Louise of Miffy's World creates the most fabulous aprons. She asked a few of us to test her latest pattern, so I decided to give it a retro look. I chose these two new fabrics from Keri Beyer of In the Beginning Fabrics, and got to work.
The instructions were easy to follow, with many helpful hints, like how to successfully attach the frill to the apron - guaranteed to save you many tears and tantrums down the track. So now it is finished and it will be part of the Easter Parade at Chez Fudge on Saturday. My, how the girls will be envious and probably want one of their own.
Now, if you pop over to BrisStyle you will have a chance to win your very own Made by Miffy apron, or two beautiful brooches by Little Chrissy. It's easy to enter, but hurry - offer ends soon!
