It's Spring time ...

Ahhh gotta love Spring time ... it's been sunny and raining and sunny and raining around here lately ... great for the flowers!  I do enjoy watching the trees getting buds and the flowers peeking their heads out ... it is a great season!

I've been doing some stitching ... love bunnies ...

and recommended threads

This design is for a contest sponsored by The Primitive Hare ... stitching is done, now I have to finish finish it ... it was a really fun stitch ... love how it turned out ...

Stitched on misc piece of fabric 
using BS Chocolate, Victorian Motto's Red 24 and
WDW Chickpea

I had a really nice mail day yesterday ... first was a RAK for Deborah.  I just love the pin cushion she stitched for me ... it's sweet and red ... what could be better than that?!  But wait ... there was a Christmas chart that is lovely, a coffee ornament to bead and some lovely buttons and flowers for future finishing.  I just love this thoughtful RAK.

The other package was an Easter package from my BBF Elaine.  She stitched this sweet bunny ornament for me ...
 I love the fabric she used for the back ...

She also included a purple bird and a nice motivational rock with dream on it ... I do a lot of that! lol


Last night was craft night ... I had some surprises for the girls ... little Easter baskets
 and mimosas ... great way to have craft night, don't ya think?
All this month during craft night we were working on these bunnies ... my dad did all the wood work ... we just painted and glittered and vinyled ... the saying is Hangin' with my Peeps ... here's the finished product ... they were fun to work on and we think they turned out pretty darn cute!

Any plans for Easter this year?  We're having a pretty quite one ... going to brunch with my dad, my father in law and the kids ... I don't have to cook!  Woo Hoo!!! lol  Hope you have a wonderful weekend and a very special Easter.

I hope you find your Joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for bunnies ...

It's a very chilly, rainy day here in SC, too. The early spring blooms have faded, but everything is looking spring green with all the rain. Looks like your crafty girls are celebrating! Great jobs! I'll be cooking ham and such, but that's ok. Wishing you a joyful Easter.
