Who Let the Cold In?!!

GOOD HEAVENS! Who let 'Old Man Winter' back in the door??!!!!

It was 38 this morning! Yeh, I know, that's sunbathing weather for a lot of you but it's down right frigid for me!
Because of the cold weather, I feel obliged to share some of my Easter goodies I've been working on! These are my designs and are just so easy to make!
 Someone said they look like Pez Dispensers! They do!
This is another one of my designs.....
My Big Foot Funny Bunnies! You know me.....I LOVE me some color!
I just finished designing this guy and am going to have him in our upcoming OFG Celebration.
I've named him Sunshine, well, for the obvious reason that he looks like sunshine!! He was SO much fun to make. I need to add a tag to him, Wonder if he can fly??!!
Last but certainly not least, I had these baking in the oven yesterday morning. 
Can't wait to take a bit out ot the real thing! We're huge melon fans here and eat lots while they're in season and plentiful!
I'm dressing Bunny dolls this morning. They are soooooo cute and can't wait to see then all completed in their Easter Finery. Will show you soon!
Hoping this is the last of the cold. It's been a heck of a winter and I'm sure all of us are ready to close the door on it!
Stay Tuned!

It's Spring here! Trees, plants, and bushes are blooming!

 Pollen is everywhere! So we're sniffling and sneezing just as if it was still cold. Can't win for losing!
I've been busy with some new patterns!
This one comes from Olde Annie Primitives.
Eater Egg Pocketfuls! They are SEW easy to make! I need to get me some Spring Pip Berries to put in them along with my Sweet Annie! I purchase my Sweet Annie from THE FLOWER PATCH on Etsy.
I've made up a 1/2 dozen of these! 
This is just a pattern I'd drawn up. Any one with drawing skills can do the same. I like to coat mine with some water-based varnish after I paint them with my Burnt Umber acrylic paint. Makes them shiny and look like REAL chocolate. You can find these in my Etsy shop.
 This pattern is from Pam Gracia of SOFT IN THE HEAD. She is so talented and I love making her patterns. 'Miss Bunny' is also in my Etsy shop.
I've cut out and sewn Watermelon, Bumble Bees, Bunnies, and now some Pigs! I've also just sold off the last of my Christmas Elves so I'll be pulling out the Christmas greens and reds soon!
I've got 3 orders for my Garlands sitting on my table so I'll need to get to those today. We've had rain, LOTS of rain, these last few days and it's kept me inside. At least I was able to finish my hand stitching which I detest!
Hope your Spring is coming in like a Lamb and not with the March winds we've been getting. I think we're all well on our way to a thaw!
Stay tuned!
