Sorry I've been gone so long. Both hubby and myself have been sick and it seems at times as if we were trying to cough ourselves to death! But so far we haven't, even though we're still sick. It's been awful hard to get motivated to decorate for Easter between feeling lousy and the cold weather that continues here. Last Monday the high temperature was 30 degrees! But I have managed to put out a few of my decorations.
The first picture is a smocked basket filled with smocked eggs that my Mom made a long time ago. I can't imagine how much work all this was. She was a sewing teacher and was a master at many kinds of needle craft. My daughter has a basket too so perhaps she'll show hers on her blog. Please also check out her blog and the awesome birthday invitations and thank you notes she made for grandson Carter's upcoming second birthday.
A basket filled with bunnies is on the dining room table. Grandson Carter loves these as does Penny the calico cat.
A closeup of a basket quilt I made a long time ago. Hand pieced and hand quilted! I don't seem to have enough time to hand quilt these days.
