Easter stitches

There was lots of time spent just loitering around here with a needle and thread in hand this Easter break - I even have something to show for it.

The projects I worked on were

Miss Millie and friends now quilted but I can't show it all yet.

A last minute Easter project, like I started it Saturday night and finished the stitching on Sunday. This gorgeous bunny pin cushion pattern is a free one over a Red Brolly - thanks Bronwyn for your generosity.

Sewn up and stuffed on Monday - he's ready for next Easter.

Then I decided as Nomee was doing a little work anyway, why not have a play with some little pieces of fabric.

There is a tutorial over a Cluck Cluck Sew for Sprocket pillows and I shrunk the pattern to make this little cutie. Thanks for the tutorial, I believe you when you say you can't stop at one.

Cut, sewn, stuffed and finished - 6 inches in diameter so less than half the size of the original - super easy just take it slow.

Hope your Easter was a Happy and Safe one.

That little bunny embroidery is adorable. I don't sew well at all. Sure wish I could after seeing what you and everyone else out there is able to whip up in no time. :) Have a great week. Tammy
