Easter Exchange & latest projects

Every Easter for quite a few years now, Kath and I have had an Easter Exchange.

This is what I received from Kath this year - so very cute!! The bunny is called Tippi Bunny. I just love it, thanks again Kath.

This year I planned to make Kath a Bippity Bunny, the pattern is by Anni Downs from Hatched n Patched. A couple of weeks ago, I met up with my friends Janet and Elsie and we had a day making bunnies. They turned out very cute, but oh my goodness, some of the sewing/stuffing was a bit fiddly and we had lots of laughs over our frustrations. I also made a Bippity bunny for Hannah too.

Usually over a long holiday weekend I like to start a new stitching project so over Easter I made a start on the final kit project from the Shepherds Bush Stitching fold, a sweet little ruler keeper.

I also made a start on a new crochet granny square blanket, this is going to be gifted to a family member expecting a little girl in July.

And just to keep things interesting, I also made a start on a new Blackbird Designs project, Dear Daughter.

I've been wanting to start this for ages and since Hannah's birthday is only a month away now it was time to get it underway.

Looking forward to some quality stitching time this Saturday & catching up with my stitching buddies!

Your Bunnies are so darn cute and so adorable...I dearly love them.

Your Stitching Projects is so the colors.

Your Granny Square Afghan is going to be pretty...I love the colors that you have chosen for your Afghan. I love making Granny Squares myself. Long Time Ago in Woman's Day Magazine - they had every type of Granny Shape that there was that is made out of Granny Squares. They have a Hexagon, Circle, and etc. You name it they had the shape made out of Granny Squares. To this day I still have that magazine. It is a Granny Square Edition of that magazine. Its a really old edition.

I am making a Afghan out of variegated Blues, Yellows, and Whites Yarn. Its all double crochet all the way across. I am almost finished with it. Last night I worked on it for a while.

Happy Stitching
Happy Crocheting
