Hello Everyone, faithful followers and NEW. I thank you all for visiting and Welcome!
I'm back from visiting my mom and we had a lovely time together. It was a very relaxed visit with only one doctor visit and then lots of girlie time, mani and pedi's, hair do appt., shopping, and a few meals out. Mom was in heaven, I pooped her out and honestly she pooped me out too! Her health remains good and her dementia changes each visit, but always a sunny smile on her sweet face. There's nothing like your mom ❤
I have so much to show you, I don't really know where to start! I have been trying to get ready for Easter, we are having at least eight for the weekend. So lots of cooking, planning and beds to make up! Little girls are coming so there will be egg dying, easter baskets, egg hunt, and playing. For the big kids there will be easter baskets (never to old) and lots of yummy meals and probably some game playing.
I wanted to make something for the baskets for the little ones, so with the help and free pattern from the talented and delightful Julie from little cotton rabbits, I made these itty bitty bunnies.
Let me show you, I think I may be making small quilts, if I don't run out of time. I guarantee you will want to make one, as you can see I couldn't stop at one.
FIVE LITTLE BUNNIES SITTING SO PRETTY
Teeny tiny buttons on little smocks
Easter baskets are ready, Jolly, Polly and Holly
I used this fuzzy yarn and it was difficult to knit and work with, so I designed a different bunny, Molly, with a cotton tail.....below
This was quicker to make, no limbs!
This is my sweet little baby bunny, named Dolly!
Polly and Dolly
SOOOOO, who wants to make one, I think I could make more if time allows! I used DK yarn for
Polly, Jolly, and Holly. I used baby yarn for Dolly. The needles were 2.75mm (but you can use 3mm). I used a self striping sock yarn for the smocks and buttons from my stash. I used DMC thread for the eyes and nose and light fabric for interfacing on face. If you make one "ENJOY"!
I have also done a little shopping from some of my blogging friends and have fallen in love with my purchases and even was a giveaway winner.
Please see what I'm talking about ❤
