Preparing for Easter – Egg Cosies

I can’t believe it’s been a month since I last blogged. I do know how it happened but I just can’t believe how fast time goes by.

Bo and I have been doing a crazy amount of work in preparation of the home store we are about to open. We had to turn the dining room into a living room, turn my home office into a dining room and empty the former living room to make space for the shop. Oh and we build a garden shed. And still we are not finished. With moving around all sorts of new ideas for the home came up. We want to have doors to the garden in de dining room and a conservatory which Bo can use as a painting studio, have you seen his work? And once we are cutting through stone we might as well add a kitchen window. So there will be lots to blog about.

I’m kick-starting with my Easter prep, because that’s lurking around the corner too. These egg cosies are the same as two other egg cosies I did previously, I’ve just added ears.
