I’m in a super rush this morning (I’m taking my daughter for the dreaded PSSA’s. She’s not happy and we’re not morning people!)  so I didn’t have a ton of time to look through the pattern but I will do that first thing when I get home.


You can find Annavirginia’s pattern HERE and if you click on the photo.


See you when we are happier and testing is over. ha

I’m still working on my second Paintbrush Pillow

Just finished felting the pillow back.

Was able to find a 100% wool blazer in a color that will do at the thrift shop for just $.50 Yay me!


Stay tuned!

My Sister friend Melody shared this photo on her Facebook page and I just think these are the greatest!

If you don’t know already, I’m a summer girl and yes Easter is kinda the springboard for summer.

These sure make me think of Summer!!


Melody (I talk about her HERE) says….

“Looking through an old album of craft projects. Almost forgot about this pic from ’96, Easter eggs I decorated as watermelons. Simple dye (light) green and sponge stripes (green food coloring straight from the tube). So cute…and seedless!”


I’ll say they’re cute and not your normal run of the mill Easter eggs.

This kinda crafting I always welcome!


Do you have any awesome decorated eggs to show us?

Let us know in the comment section of this post.


Have a wonderful Resurrection Holiday!
