In January I agreed to make a handmade items for 5 people who signed up on my Facebook Page. I agreed to make an item sometime before the end of the year.You must then open it up to your friends and in turn, make five items for 5 more people.
My sister Alisa is on my list, so I decided to make her this cute bunny penny mat. I made one for myself a few years ago. I hope she doesn't peek at my blog-she's been pretty busy lately, so I don't think she's been following me.
I used a combination of regular felt and wool felt. I love wool felt, but didn't have all the colors I needed and I'm really trying to use up what I have this year. I cut out all the pieces and was able to get it done watching movies last night. Of course, I stayed up really late. I really enjoy handwork~especially embroidery work.
I'm boiling eggs now to dye. Jim has to have his deviled eggs and egg salad sandwiches this Easter season! I wish I lived closer to LaVonne so I could enjoy her farm fresh eggs. Tomorrow I will be baking so I can make a family Easter tradition....Blarney Stones. I'll have to explain that one!There's not enough days left in this week to squeeze all my blog posts in!
Tomorrow is Teacup Thursday, so I need to decide which one to feature this week.
I never got all of my Easter decorations up this year. Our daughters won't be home for the first time ever and it just doesn't quite feel like Easter. I need to remember the real meaning of this week and focus on the remaining days of Holy Week.
The weather has been a bit better. I enjoyed working outside yesterday and made some progress with the flower beds. It froze again last night, so it's just not quite time to plant yet. I have to make myself wait for May. I just hope this May is warmer and dryer than last year. The weather man isn't too encouraging with his long range forecast. Hummm....I guess I'll just hope for the best.
