It’s About the Lamb

I found the sweetest little Lamb pattern that seemed to fit perfectly with my goal of recognizing the Savior’s gift to us on Easter. I wanted to make them for my kids but I just couldn’t get five of them finished in time.

So instead, I ran them around to my neighbors with a sweet little booklet called “It’s Not About the Bunny, It’s About the Lamb.”

I think I’ll be making a few more of these.

At least 5 anyway.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!!


Like many of my family and friends, we tried real hard to direct our focus a lot more on the real meaning of Easter this year.

I even listened to a talk by Gary Stevenson that suggested we start looking at Easter as a holiday that rivals Christmas in importance.

Don’t get me wrong–I love the other stuff too. The bunnies the chicks and baskets and eggs.

And then there’s the candy. Oh, yeah. Can we talk for a few days about the CANDY?!

But I also see that this day should mean so much more.

We are trying and I hope each year to do better and better at remembering that there would be no reason for Christmas…

if there wasn’t an Easter.


Tarmac The Bunny–Again

Of course, I posted this last year, but it kinda bugged me. The ears were too big and weird. Soooooo….

I wrapped the bottoms with black yarn and Poof!!

If you didn’t catch this bunny at the exact right angle, you’d never know. Feeling a bit clever…and just a tad lazy. Haha.

Still loving that bitty basket.

Happy Easter.

“Paper” Chains

Oh, my goodness do I ever have a new LOVE!! I mean, seriously–just look at these cute little crocheted “paper” chains!!

Yeah, it started out innocently enough. I found the pattern for these red, white and blue ones and tweaked it in a few crucial places–as is my style–and we ended up with these pretties.

Then, try as I may, I couldn’t stop. They just kept coming and coming and coming. These “summer” ones looked more like Easter sooo, I finished them and put them downstairs in the box with all the baskets.

Then the quest for the perfect real Summer colors began and ended here. What do you think? I lovvvvve them. They just scream beaches, hot sun and ripe peaches.

Now, you would likely think that I’d be done by now but noooOOOooo. Considering my yarn stash is about nine miles wide–I have SUCH plans…

starting right here.

Heh, heh, heh.
