Happy Easter!

Just finished making these Easter Bunnies! 

The two in back now live with Diane!

The pattern was given to me by Sally at Polliwog's Cakewalk Sally's bunnies are BEAUTIFUL!  She found the coolest sweaters on the planet to felt for this project.  Don't miss seeing them!!

The pink bunnies were made from a felted wool sweater I found at the Goodwill bins. I am planning to make little snowman hats out of the sleeves!

The nubbly bunnies were made using the fleece lining from a moth eaten Pendleton vest rescued from the bins.  The felted wool top layer will be a teddy bear one day!

Did you know that in Sweden, today is Skartorsdag!  In short, Swedish children dress up as adorable little witches and go from door to door asking for candy!   Here is another peak at the little witches! So cute.

To celebrate Skartarsdag, I am sharing a lovely new friend with you!  Sasha writes a blog centered around her children's lives called Squashed Tomatoes and I encourage everyone reading this to take a minute to visit and maybe even take an extra minute and say hello.  

To see how much fun they have together check out Dinosaur Mountain and this project made after a visit to a fire station!

I leave you with a few Easter pictures from her site (with her permission, of course!)

Swedish Easter Tree.  I love the feathers!  And she adds butterflies too!

And check out the Lego playground the children built for the chicks.

Discovering Easter flowers!  Sooooo sweet.

Happy Easter everyone!

Too cute!! I love your felted bunnies!!!

In Germany, children go around on November 1st, not dressed up, but carrying colourful paper lanterns. They go from house to house in the neighbourhood and sing short hymns. Usually they get candy or sweets of different kinds. I remember doing this when I was still very young. I couldn't remember any hymns from Sunday School, so I sang a nursery rhyme. I still got candy, though!
