Hippity Hoppity Easter's on its way!

I enjoy doing a little hand sewing sometime during my day. It's very relaxing. I also like working with felt. It is so easy to use and very forgiving.

We have 4 Grandkids (DJ-11, Mariah-8, Jacob-2, Nathan-8 months) that live way up north in Connecticut. I wanted to make them something for Easter instead of buying bunches of candy. I'll let their parents deal with that. I was going to try and design some different bunnies and such until I came across this shop. I fell in love with just about everything they designed. I purchased their Easter set a few weeks ago. I have been doing a little sewing on them every day of so. Of course I didn't follow the directions/pattern exactly, but the grandkids won't know :) I made jelly beans and eggs instead of making them cookies. I don't plan on making the basket for them either. They all live in a tiny apartment and Mom doesn't need anything extra laying around. I like to give them something useful that they can store lots of things in. I'm not sure what I'll make yet but I'm leaning towards a fabric bowl or something similar. That way they can keep all sorts of treasures in it .

I'm sure Grammy and Grumpy will find some other goodies to add to their baskets too :)

Those look like so much fun! I know my kids would enjoy them so I'm sure your grandkids will too.

Those are just too cute--I just can't believe it's almost time for Easter! But after all, Mardi Gras is next week which means we only have the 40 days of lent after that! I'm ready for the school vacation, just not for the time to fly by quite so fast!
