A felt rabbit and toadstool

Waldorf Autumn craft

Easter in the Southern Hemisphere is an interesting conundrum in some ways. Celebrating a festival more suited to the awakening Earth in Spring while slowly moving towards a time of introspection and slumber. And yet, even in the season where the leaves fall and the Earth quietens, new life and renewal occurs.


I have been watching our baby chicks and seeing Autumn bulbs poke through the ground. And in between other moments I found time to sit in my sun room sewing. I enjoy the slowness of hand sewing and the quiet it brings. And so I sat and created a simple Easter bunny and an Autumn toadstool.


For the bunny I adapted the sweet mouse pattern from Rhythm & Rhyme. Adding a wool felt ball tail, and choosing sweet bunny coloured felt. Longer bunny shape ears and a pretty pink nose. Put it all together and a bunny I had made.

The magical toadstool was inspired by Twig and Toadstool. I needle felted the spots on top, and the greenery at the base.

I wrapped them up in a playsilk, together with a rainbow Easter egg and sent them to a craft swap partner.

I hope you all have a lovely Easter.

Painting stump seats

One of our favourite spots in the garden is our toadstool nook…
Many a picnic and afternoon tea have been enjoyed here *smile*
Recently I noticed how faded and chipped our stump seats were looking…
…never mind the toadstool table and stools!

So out came some brightly coloured paint…
and paint brush *smile*
Painting the stumps didn’t take long
Although I had to keep inquisitive little hands away
{not always successfully!}

It’s amazing what a quick lick of paint can do!
Don’t they look fun and inviting *smile*

And just right in amongst the beautiful Spring garden
{this is a photo from last year… can’t wait for the plants to bloom soon!}

Do you have special nooks in your garden?

Happy days,
