Bunnies Bunnies Bunnies

Easter Egg Pin Cushion

This one is an Easter Egg Pin cushion....made of dark brown embossed felt to look like chocolate.The basis of this pattern can be found on . I tweeked the original pattern so it would have the effect I was looking for .... then just added different trims to look like icing.

Easter...Yoyo Bunny

Since I didnt post for Easter, I thought I would do that now. Better late than never, right?
This bunny was really quick and easy to make. His body is made up of many different sized fabric yoyo's. I tried to keep the colors springy and cheerful. The bunnies face and ears are made of felt and embroidered.

Knit "Dishcloth" Shawl

Wow ,its been a while since Ive updated.My bad! Life is still keeping me pretty busy,but I have managed to sneak in some knitting classes & start my first knitting projects.Ive always wanted to learn ,but was never able to get it together enough to actually give it a try.Im having lots of fun with it so far....except when I drop a stitch and have to go back:) The girls that go to the knitting shop are a hoot and fun to be around.
I havent given up my other crafts,just put them on hold for a bit.There are some projects Im making for me & other family members before I start swapping again.Learning lots of new things from contacts on here (thanks for sending patterns my way) and enjoying the great weather.Im also spending more time outside ....finally! Checking on the garden to see what has survived through the winter.Ive lost some great plants this year ,but cant complain.Most are doing well & I cant wait to see them bloom out. Ill be adding more posts soon....just trying to keep up for now :)
