We have had a very fun and family filled Easter weekend here, but I did get some crochet and sewing fitted in.Good Friday saw us travel to Windsor for a day out at Legoland!! The boys had no idea where we were going and as soon as they saw the road signs they were so excited.
Sunday and Monday were the days I could get some crafting fitted in, lots of quilting (which I will post about later in the week) and crocheting my hexagons.
Now, this week should have been my last hexagons and then on to the border...... but the wool gods had other ideas and left me 2 circles short of the orange that is in every center of the hexagons. I couldn't get believe I had to get another ball for 2!! But the lovely Suzanne had left a comment on my last hexagon post which suggested the orange as part of the border. I hadn't thought of the orange, it's a great idea, to use the one colour that is in every hexagon to tie them all together! I haven't got to John Lewis yet to purchase the ball so I'm a few short this week.

If you follow me on Instagram you'll know that today I have been making a delicious Rocky Road with chocolate and sweets from the Easter eggs.
recipe is by Fiona Carins and what I love is that it just gives you how much of any chocolate you can add. This makes it sooooo flexible and great for us also I did add some raisins so that really should count as one of my fruit One a Day!! ; )
I'm off to read some blogs and have a lovely cup of tea and slice of rocky road xxx
