Easter Cone

Hi All, I managed to find time to make this Easter Cone for my niece at the weekend. I will send it to Mum and she will fill it with Easter Lindt Bunnies. I really enjoyed making something like this as it's been a long time since I have had time to make something like this. Imogen is so cute, and she will just love this, especially if it has Easter treats in it!

This week has been mad at work and on top of my normal job I was asked to assist with training for the Grads that are doing their senior level professional papers so that took up a good portion of my morning (poor things, I wouldn't want to go through all that again), I also had to do a presentation on "in-work tax credits" (very exciting....not) at lunch time today to 30 people and then Jason and I had our weekly German class from 6pm to 7.30pm tonight. The rest of the week I am going to have to work late as things are piling up a bit. This is a mad time of year for accountants in NZ as everyone's 2011 accounts/tax returns are due to be filed by 31 March 2012 and there are always a certain amount of people who leave it to the last minute to send in their information. 

I received Mum's fabric too today and Joanne is quite right,  they are going to be beautiful blocks! I love the colours, I can't wait to see a block finished. I doubt I will get to mine until next weekend as this weekend I will most likely be at work too, as I am taking the training for the intermediate Grads for their first professional papers and there just isn't enough time during work hours to prepare everything that needs to be done and I don't want to rush their training, I want to be well prepared.

Have a good week all of you.

  1. Wow, you really have a lot on your plate at the moment. I'm glad that you found some time to make that lovely Easter Cone. It's so cute and filled with chocolate, it will certainly delight your little niece.
    PS: I haven't got my fabric yet from your mum. Can't wait to see it. I hope it will arrive before we are off to Switzerland for a month at the end of next week.

  2. I love your Easter cone Susan, you are very well organized to get it made so well in advance of Easter.

  3. Susan, Your Easter cone is so cute - a lucky niece indead! I seem to remember you have made others before - were they in Xmas fabrics? I imagine they would look lovely for any occassion. J.

  4. Hi Susan

    Love the Easter cone, I have fond memories of having to make 8 one year for Lucy's Bithday party. They make great gifts, Imogen will be delighted to carry her Easter treats around in it.

  5. Gosh, I am tired just reading Susan's message!
