Easter Basket

Morning everybody, please don't faint but I was awoken very early this morning by banging. So on that note I have cleared all my household chores and now I thought I pop a post on!
I have put some pictures of an easter basket I made on here, that was for a class at our local Hospice. My mum and I regularly visit for the day to show them how to make different bits and bobs. We usually make different albums or keepsakes that they can keep photographs in or give to loved ones. Last week we added a bit of eater into the mix.......
The link to make these baskets is here and they take all of a minute to make. So if you wanted to give something different to the children this easter, then have a go. It would probably work out a lot cheaper than an easter egg. It does actually fit 3 Cadbury's Creme Egg, exactly.
I was preparing for our day at the Hospice the night before, as you do. The time before we made quite a mess everywhere so I decided to take a really small cardboard box, for rubbish. Now this box is only about 15cm x 15cm. I placed it on the floor to put in my bag guessed it Harmonny got in it!! First went in the head and the front legs and I looked at Chris, to say well she won't fit in there and before I knew it there she was sitting inside the whole thing.............................................take a look.
This particular cat has turned maternal. It bad enough try to sleep in a comfortable position, but I am waking up to find a cat asleep on peanut. She also has a habit of following me everywhere. Pregnancy update for those of you wanting to know, I will be 21 weeks tomorrow. Mum and I are off for the 20 week scan, which is where you can find out the sex of the baby. Chris and I have decided not to find out as we want a surprise, but I have been promised not to secretly ask the lady doing the scan.............I might just have a peek though. It's my week for the Polkadoodles challenge this week so come and check it out on Friday. Take care Nettie.xx

    So pleased you are keeping well, bet you are looking forward to the scan. I am like you on knowing the sex, I think that's all part of the excitement of giving birth.
