Easter tidy up

Happy Easter everyone! I love Easter weekend so much. It's lovely because my daughter was born on an Easter Monday nearly 25 years ago and she has the middle name of 'Blossom' to prove it. 

Today I've been trying to get rid of the white fly off my roses, generally tidy up and clear a space around the lounge so that I can spread out all the crochet squares that are going to take some organising and sewing up. 

While I was clearing out I found these gorgeous braids. I've had them for years but never found a good use for them. I bought them from a Souk (marketplace) in Muscat, Oman. Just love them, too good to waste packed away and squashed among the books on the shelf...
