Cross stitch Easter eggs anyone?

I finally got round to taking some snaps of things I said I would like a month ago!
I still haven't worn these out, but I think i might today. My kitty leggings:
|Kitty Leggings from Boohoo|
I got these a while ago (think I got the last pair) from BooHoo. I'd read a review saying the quality is pretty poor... and it was right. There's threads hanging off everywhere and I feel like I'm going to bust them just getting my feet in and out. BUT, let's face it, they're cute. So I will put up with the shoddy threads and maybe wear them out shopping today!
I also purchased this River Island dress from a charity shop.

It didn't come with the belt, so I've put my own apple belt with it.
|Belt from H&M years ago!|
I don't often wear this much colour, but I thought 'why the hell not?' It's a very cute day dress that I can wear for work and to wear out. I only noticed today that it's a ruddy size 6!!! I have no idea how I've got into it really. I bet I rip it!
I have a major lack of summer tops to wear (I'm usually all about knitwear) so I've picked up a couple of cute things lately:
|Oasis top via charity shop|
Another charity shop bargain! Originally from Oasis. I don't usually wear yellow, I find it clashes with my yellow skin tone, but this is too pretty to ignore. Plus, I thought it was rather 70's looking, and I love the colours from that time: browns, yellows and oranges. I wish I was growing up then (but then I'd be old now.... so maybe not!)
|Owl summer top from Vampire Bunnies|
I got this top WEEKS ago from the Vampire Bunnies boutique in Manchester's Afflecks Palace. It's all hand made and everything is very cute. If it wasn't for lack of cash, I would have got a number of cardigans from there too! HERE is their facebook page with loads of good photo's.
In creative news, I've nearly finished the Drop Dead kitty (pattern available in previous blog post).

It's for Ruby's birthday (which is on Saturday) so it'll be finished in time.
I've been spending a lot of my free creative time helping my mums church make a couple of new banners. I'm not religious at all, just helping out. So that explains why I don't have a lot to show for myself lately :(
We're incorporating a lot of different crafts into the banners (knit, crochet, felt, embroidery etc) so it's taking rather a long time. I'll post pics when they're done.
I got a new teapot this week (YAY!) My friends Jane and Susan got me this:
I've never seen a carousel horse teapot before. It's actually my best teapot so far! THANK YOU GUYS!!!!!
Another little cute thing I got... a doggy candle! lol
I had some lovely days off last week... and went on THREE picnics. The weather has gone a bit chilly again now, but hopefully it'll be sunny again for more fun picnic times:
