Getting Ready for Easter

Now that the spring weather has arrived, it's time to start picking up goodies to fill the kids' Easter baskets, and I am trying really hard to keep the sugary candy to a minimum, so I've been hopping around shops on Etsy.com looking for goodies. First, I am making each of them a homemade basket, using my Creative Kids Art Bucket design:

I got these super cute Circus Rice Mice from worksofwhimsy:

And I LOVE these crayons from kittybblove:

Off to do more browsing and shopping!

Happy 1st Weekend of Spring

The first Saturday of SPRING is great so far. Fairly warm (for Michigan) and the sun is shining!

Just finished designing the center of a princess-themed wall quilt . . . need to add the borders and such, but here is the work in progress, below:

While watching the basketball games last night I finished the binding on a fun springy quilt - a Butterfly themed quilt using my original multi-sensory baby quilt design.  It shipped out this morning to its new owner.

Back outside to enjoy the sunshine!
