Easter is around the corner - and I'm NOT ready!  I just realized it is this coming Sunday.  Wasn't it just yesterday when it was a month away?

I have already purchased two SMALL little baskets for my granddaughter's.  One for a doll, one for the 2 year old.  I have goodies to put in the baskets, but only little goodies.

Seems to me that I should get on the stick and add to the small pile, but I'm at a loss as to what to do.

I think that I might make a little rabbit for each girl, or one rabbit and one something else. Then MAIL!

Irka has the cutest chick to egg back to chick on her blog that is a freebie.  It would be cute for the older girl (and as the little two year old is going on 16, she might actually be able to understand the concept). Check it out. The link will take you to the blog that has all the Amigurumi animals that she makes. The dogs are just darling!!

And here is the chicken, without the egg! CUTE!

So are you ready for Easter? What are you doing special? Other than church and visiting the FIL, I think I'll sit in my chair, relax and contemplate Peeps and dark chocolate, and memories of my childhood when times were blissful and full of hope.

Happy Easter and blessings to everyone!

My St. Patricks Day Surprise from Liz!

Hay y'all! Long time no see! I'm finally getting back to posting. Unfortunately this post is just about ME! I want to share my wonderful gift from Lizavietta on Ravelry from the Itsy Bitsy Swap group.

Everything in this package is just sooooo special! As you can see she sent the Vanna's Easy to Crochet Critters (I use VC all the time!!!) and there are lots of cuties in there! Also, two Glamour skeins in the silver - so luscious! Just for me alone! I won't share, I won't!!

Leaning on the yarn is a green knit scarf which is soft as a baby's butt! ;o) It must have some angora in there, or something like that, and she did a fantastic job! It's just more than beautiful! Hanging on the scarf is a heart decoration that Liz made. I had to look at it twice as it looked like it was made at a jewelry store! See how intricate it is....I was decorating cookies the other day and could not make ANYTHING look decent. I just can't imagine how she did this so well. Just beautiful!

The other is a cowl and is just scrumptious! I am not positive of the content, but looks to be the new Vanna heather in a charcoal color. The buttons are soooo perfect for such a gorgeous cowl!

On top of pattern book are hanging six sets of earrings/or/stitch markers! There are two of each one, and just absolutely darling! I know she made these herself. The first one you can't see that well, but the disk is a kitty face that moves....both sides of it, er, I mean THEM as there are two.

Last, but definitely not least, is the one and only kitty face that is yowling! I had to show you both faces of this kitty! He is soooo, sooooooo, soooooooooooooooo darling!
Thanks Liz!! Too wonderful!
