Busy Busy Busy !!!

Well it's been a while, In fact I've been meeting my self coming backwards some days . I've been getting all my sewing done ready for Easter , as well as working and dealing with poorly children ( my youngest is on his second bout of illness in a week and a half ). Oh and a craft stall , at a school event today .  Goodness me I'm quite worn out , I'm just so thankful that we break up for Easter on Wednesday . But I would like to share with you my Easter makes .














Busy Busy Busy !!!!

    2. If you haven't sold the one with the spotty blue legs and the flowery shorts can I ask if I can buy her? Looks like your going to get a bit of a following!! And really well deserved if I do say so!!

      Hope you have a wonderfully happy Easter.

    3. Hi Colette , Sorry but the spotty blue legs Hare went a week ago . One of my Monday evening crochet friends snapped her up before she was finished. I'm thinking I might try and get another batch done over the coming weeks and see if I can get something set up on Folksy or Etsy .All I can say at the moment is watch this space.
      Have a wonderful Easter , kind regards Tracy .

  2. Hi Tracy, I just want to encourage you ..... I think your makes are just fantastic .... the hares are really unusual - I haven't seen any around Blogland quite like them, I love their crochet jumpers .... Hares are really jumpers aren't they! Also your peg idea, what a wonderful way to brighten up a washing day line :0)
    I have loved visiting you and have saved you to my blog roll, you are a very inspiring blogger :0) ..... I am Yorkshire too, though live in the South for now, but a long time ago I was born and bred in a coal mining village ..... you can tell I am old - the pits have long since gone.
    Have a lovely crafty and inspiring Spring time ....
    best wishes Val xx

  5. may i be a bit cheeky, how much do you sell your rabbits for there are so sweet rach x

    1. Hi Rach , I'm glad you like the rabbits/hares , I don't charge enough for my hares ,as it's normally friends that buy them and I always feel guilty asking them for money.They are made from Russian linen and I like to give them Liberty lawn trousres and bags . The jumpers are normally made from designer wool such as 'Rowan'.I always like to use good quality fabrics and yarns and for this reason I should sell the rabbits/hares for about £20.
      I hope this answers your question and have a wonderful Easter .
      Kind regards Tracy xx

  6. Seeeeeeee, I told you so. You should definitely take the plunge and open that shop tracy, you have such original ideas and such a beautiful sense of design, not to mention your awesome and slightly scary talent for stitching lol! Your hares are so lovable, not just for easter, same with the angels, I would love a year round GoodWishes angel with a bit of liberty lawn and maybe a wee heart garland......lavender bags, and those dotty pegs,icould keep you in business single handed!!!!! Xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  24. Hi Tracey, Like Shirley, I followed the link from Lucy at Attic 24 and have now fallen madly in love with your work. I will be reading your blog daily to see what is going on with you AND to see if Lucy has successfully convinced you to open an Etsy shop. Your work is just amazing. Unlike Shirley, I WILL be pressuring you to sell you creations. Lol. Hopefully, the germs are out of your home and everyone if feeling better. Have fun with the craft stall. I am sure when you have sold EVERYTHING, you will realize that Esty is in your future.
    Happy Easter, barb

    Good luck with all your future stitching and your new shop which will be a tremendous success.
