{Go Make Me} Easter bunny egg cozies


The mornings are beginning to cool here in Australia and my breakfast googy eggs are getting colder, faster. With Easter around the corner, keep your eggs toasty warm by making these wee Bunny Egg Cozies. Of course you can add a little scarf for the ultimate snuggly egg, but that would be going over-the-top now, wouldn't it?


For the scarf
Cast on 4 stitches using 4mm needles and 3 ply wool or ribbon. Knit until scarf reaches 24 cm

For the cozies
1} Download Easter Bunny Egg Cozie template (for personal use only)

2} Cut out pieces in felt

3) Glue inner ear to outer ear. Pin ears to one side of head, crossing over each other as shown

4} Hand or machine sew through all pieces. Turn inside out. Hand-sewn eyes and nose

Please note: I've designed the cozy to totally cover an egg (as per the template) to keep you googly egg warm. Optionally, trim it off as show below but I don't guarantee a toasty egg if the egg is a little short!


Quay Restaurant, Sydney


I was sooo spoiled this weekend with a visit to the Quay Restaurant in Sydney, nestled in the Overseas Passenger Terminal opposite the Opera House. Yum! Peter Gilmore's dishes are more art than food in taste, texture and visual appeal. Of course desserts were on the agenda with the Eight-Texture Chocolate Cake (the eighth layer was drizzled on the cake at the table) and the famous Guava Snow Egg. Very delicious, but I warn you....the Chocolate Cake is veeeeeery rich. PS Sorry about the pics, I didn't take the right lens and I was pickled!
