woodland critters Christmas cookie cutters


Christmas is only 5 weeks away. Eek! In a vain attempt to capture a whiff of Christmas spirit, I revisted last year's photos for inspiration. As part of the Christmas Angel Wings Template photography (you can download here), I came across this photo that includes cookie cutters that we purchased from Ikea

I've always liked the idea of hanging cookies from the tree, but I don't think the Southern Hemisphere would be kind....heat, humidity, flies, ants....more likely to attract bees than good cheer. Previously I've made Ginerbread Houses that would sag at the door frames and quietly implode at the chimney stack. Sweltering on Christmas Day is the norm and Santa is more likely to arrive in Speedos than red velvet

I haven't experienced a white Christmas, perhaps Santa might deliver one, one day?


{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!
