Happy Easter!

 A short post today firstly to say a big thank you for all the comments and suggestions after my insomnia post last week.  It's quite shocking to realise that so many of us are having problems with sleeping. I am going to try each of your suggestions and will report back in a few weeks to let you know if they have had any effect.  I know that what helps some to sleep will not necessarily help others but I think anything is worth a try. 

We have had a couple of beautiful weather days here in England, hopefully a taste of what is to come, but unfortunately not this weekend.  Here in the Uk we can now meet up with six people outdoors or in our gardens, I am planning an Easter egg hunt for Mikey my little grandson and had hoped we would have been able to sit outside and enjoy some sunshine for a while but it looks like the weather won't be in our favour, however we will do the best we can, I can't wait to see my family in my garden again, fingers crossed that it won't rain.🤞

I have been busy painting Easter rocks to hide for Mikey and some to hide in the neighbourhood.

I had a lot of fun painting these and there's still time to paint a few more before I put them out. 

I was so pleased to see a response to my snail trail, a lady on Facebook posted that she had found Sally and Sonya and she thought they were so cute! it was lovely to hear that they were putting a smile on someone's face it makes it all worthwhile.😊

On the crafting front I am pleased to say that DIL's birthday gift is nearly done, I have only the last round of the border to finish, hopefully I can do that today and then it will be ready to gift to her on Sunday.

The Twelve Days Of Christmas Sampler is on track, I managed to put the last stitch in for day six just before the end of March, now I can look forward to sewing day seven in April.

I would like to wish a Happy Easter to everyone who is celebrating this weekend, I hope you all have a wonderful time catching up with your relatives and friends but please stay safe. 


  1. No wonder I thought it was a long wait for your blog this week - I completely forgot to read last week's one! I am sorry to hear that you are still having sleep problems and hope that some of the replies you got will help. There's nothing worse than a sleepless night and mine only happen once in a while. Your 3/8 mile walk looks lovely, but as you said, a shame about the litter. People are becoming more and more irresponsible. I wish I could paint - I would make the little stones and leave them for people to find. Nice to get some feedback via facebook :)

  2. Your painted rocks are so sweet. Hope weather will hold out for you. Happy Easter. Happy stitching!

  3. Happy Easter Linda! Hope you have a wonderful time with your family :-) Just love your paint rocks impressive! We were thinking of going to the beach today but it is windy and a bit chilly still. We instead went for a car ride to the salt lakes to see the flamingos. keep well Amanda x

  4. Your Easter rocks are absolutely lovely, I wish I lived in your neighbourhood, I'd love to find one. I'm glad you've had some feedback about the snail trail and that the rocks are putting a smile on people's faces. You're doing well to stay on track with your Twelve Days cross stitch, I'm still a way behind you with mine. Wishing you a Happy Easter, I do hope the weather stays fine for your egg hunt and that you get to spend some time with your family.

  5. Your rock painting is fantastic, I haven't come across one in our area for quite a while, they do bring a smile when I see one though.
    Fingers crossed the rain keeps off on Sunday, we are having an Easter Egg Hunt for the grandchildren too :-)
    Happy Easter

  6. I think your painted rocks are brilliant.
