2014 PC Blog Hop: Delft Blue Windmill Ornaments

P1220189a

Windmills have always held a special fascination for me - whether fabulously beautiful designs with a multitude of grilled blades or a tumbledown old relic rusting away on American prairies. I can not help myself. I must stop and gaze at every one I encounter - and listen while the wind gently nudges the blades into action. Now, thanks to a "gentle nudge" from Diane's 2014 PC Blog Hop, I have fashioned my very own windmills to sit on my mantle, hang on my holiday tree and to take their place at my "St. Nicholas table" in December.

Last Minute Quick As a Wink Easter Bunnies to Make

Adorable Bunny made using pattern from Abby Glassenberg

Still need a bunny for your basket?

Don't despair! There is still plenty of time to make one! Or two or three!

It only took me a couple hours to stitch and stuff the plump little pink bunny above. If you have a bit of stuffing and a little felt or plush in the house you are set! Easter Bunny in a couple hours! Less if (unlike me) you sew him on the machine!

Embroidered Norwegian Primstav: A year long journey

I am embarking on a long anticipated journey. A road less taken to be sure but a road that, although lost to the mists of time and unfamiliar to most people, beckons and intrigues me.

The journey fits in very nicely with my focus this year on completing personal projects that have languished on my "to do" lists while I gave my time and attention to "blog projects".

Easter Bunny Reveal!!!

Easter Bunny Embroidery

I have been so eager to share my Easter Bunny! Currently under construction, of course, but still - exciting!!

Before I share one more word or picture about bunny goodness however, I need first and foremost to give credit to three fabulous designers who are collectively and totally responsible for inspiring my Easter Bunny! Without the inspiration and the skills learned from each of them, I would not be having all this fun!
