I hope you all enjoyed your Easter weekend. We stayed at home but really enjoyed having an extra couple of days. I made some Easter decorations, based on an idea I saw on Sew for Soul Blog, although I used tissue paper painted with acrylic as my base layer.
It was a little fiddly to cut the images out of the paper napkins, but I am pleased with the way they turned out. I also decorated some others with pastel dots and tissue paper stars, but they aren't quite finished yet. The lilac in the top picture had to be cut from the tree as it was a wayward branch which threatened to hit us every time we went near it, but it is scenting the room nicely and adds a bit more Spring to the Easter decorations.
Here's the real thing, looking beautiful against the blue sky we had over the weekend.,
Lilac is not the most beautiful of trees for most of the year, but then it really does earn its place for three glorious weeks in Spring.
