Hoppy Easter!

Sock monkeys didn't seem right for Easter so I made sock bunnies. My friend Barbara actually asked me to make some for her. I played around with it and liked the outcome! Hippity Hoppity Easter's on its way (anyone remember that song?).

Bunnies for Barbara . . .

All finished:

Gumbo = YUMBO!

Dan and I had Shannon and Dave over for dinner on Friday night. I thought it would be fun to have a New Orleans theme. My friend Shelley is from NO and has a fantastic recipe for gumbo that she gave me. I also made bread pudding with rum sauce (I mean YUM sauce . . . I wonder how many times I can use that pun during this post?)

Starts with okra:

Ends with lots of YUM (unless you're a vegetarian):

Weekend To-Do List

I realized the other day that I had a bunch of craft projects laying around that were all about 85% finished. This weekend was dedicated to giving that last 15%.
(No, I didn't finish EVERYTHING.)

The list:

Sock monkeys:

Scarflette for Bre's birthday gift (the cool button is to the left side of my neck - not seen):

Scarflette for myself:

My dad gave me a ton of really cool buttons from an estate sale he went to. This was one of his great finds:

I haven't sewn the flowers in place yet. I'm still deciding where I want them:

That was a fun weekend!
