I've been on a computer hiatus lately, no posts, no facebook and I'm totally over due answering emails. I don't know what my deal is! But I must tell you, the bunny pattern is almost done. I just need to get together with my computer guy (Denny) and get the instructions onto the PDF.

Also, The Market is starting May 9th!!!! That means market pictures. Oh, I'm so excited. I'm told there will be carrots and strawberries along with the usual early spring produce on the first day. Hurray! I can almost taste them just thinking about it.

Easter (make something cool when I can)

It was Saturday, I hadn't done A THING for Easter. It is hard to be motivated when you have been invited to three Easter celebrations and there is going to be candy and egg hunting at each one. But I decided I needed to do something, I wanted to do something. I preceded to brainstorm, rabbit silhouette, felted sweaters, images from a Google search. Result: Easter bunnies for the kids.

Denny said he will take my pattern and turn it into a pdf so I can post it here. Maybe in time for next Easter.

Happy Easter kids getting revved up for the hunt, decked out in scarves I made them with that dreamy-soft-bumpy-baby blanket material (don't know what it's called) and scraps of fabric. Something I did on a whim and just love how they turned out.

Just Too Busy

Seriously Folks, I'm just too busy for my own good. I really don't know how people with kids are supposed to get anything done. I'm never home anymore and never seem to have the time or energy to have some me time! I actually have tons of things I want to write about, just can't get it done. I'm trying to be a part of Dabbled's Make Something Cool Every Day challenge. At this point, just posting here will be challenging enough!

So here are some teaser pics just to let you know that I'm still alive and kicking and "doing".

Velvet Chocolate Sauce.

A bowl of dirt?

Ta Da!

*The quilts sold for nearly $400 a piece!

I've heard that photographing quilts can be a challenge and I must agree. I had good lighting, so the colors turned out lovely, but it is hard figuring out how to lay them.

These quilts are really all about the children's art work. I love the imagination.

Now they are headed to the school auction that takes place on Saturday. I'm actually nervous about watching them get auctioned off. I hope they are a hit!
