Easter Crafting

For the past few years Kath and I have exchanged a little stitched gift at Easter time. Sometimes it takes me ages to decide on a design, other times I have it worked out straight away. This year I chose a pattern by Homespun Elegance:




Sampler Bunny by Homespun Elegance
stitched with recommended threads, unknown fabric


This is what I received from Kath - love the pink and the spots!  A chocolate bunny, nom nom!!


Next up is the spoolie bunny I made for Hannah's Easter basket - I bought this little kit back in February from the craft show.  This is by Cameron-James Designs.


I knitted some hand warmers to go with our nieces' Easter eggs - Hannah helped to pick out the colours for the girls.


This little Lizzie Kate pillow went into my little basket of Easter smalls.


"Chicks" - Lizzie Kate kit
used recommended threads and fabric from kit


One of my friends recently went to Melbourne for the Australian Quilt Convention and bought back a few goodies for me including the pattern and fabric to make up this bunny.

You have been busy. Adore the easter sampler you made for Kath. I am going to see if I can buy the pattern. I am amazed at the amount of stitching you manage to fit into your life.

I am over stripping wall paper. Only done a little section of passage this morning. I just want to sit and stitch. We are going o a nautical themed party and I am making anchor brooches from felt, am enjoying making them and last week I made red felt poppy brooches for friends, they were a great hit.

I love my bunny Katrina, it really is beautiful. The backing fabric looks like little pale blue eggs, perfect for this piece.

Of course, I love all the other things you have made too. Very cool.

Such cute Easter finishes, Katrina--I will definitely be adding that HE bunny to my 'must-stitch' list :)

I'm sure Hannah loved that adorable spool bunny, too--how cute!

Love all of the different bunnies. What a coincidence that you and Kath both used the pom-pom trim! Both are beautiful.
