Crochet Spring Bunnies and Easter Rabbits - Patterns You Will Love

As Spring is definitely in the air here in Ireland I want to share some great patterns I have found recently.  I still find it amazing that you put a quite specific search into your computer eg. Easter Bunny Crochet Pattern and so many adorable and different patterns appear.  People that make patterns are so creative and clever and I have great admiration for them.

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes - a novel

One of my New Year's resolutions was to read more, as in novels.  I have to admit, so far I have failed on this challenge, but am keen to give it a go again.

However I did recently finish a great book called Me Before You by Jojo Moyes.  It was one of those books that you did not want to end.  Some of the words you could use to describe it are - bittersweet love, soul searchng, compelling, poignant and unlikely love story.  There were 4395 5* reviews of it on Amazon. I am a chic-lit kind of reader, but this book really struck a cord and makes you think about your own life and consider what is truly important in it.

So if you want a good read try and get a copy.  It is a 2012 book, so you may come across it second-hand or it is available new here.
