Little Sweetie's Springtime

Hello everyone. First, I want to thank you for all of your kind comments, thoughts, and prayers concerning my friend. I know she and her family appreciate it as do I.

This past week I was fortunate to have some time off from work. I like to take a week off in February every year. It helps to break up the winter blahs. Sometimes I actually go away but most times I putter around the house and relax. That was the agenda this past week. I did get some time to create a few Easter treats. I've named this series of Easter eggs, Little Sweetie because the bunny is such a Little Sweetie here to help us welcome in spring.


I used seam binding and vintage jewels to top off each egg.


The eggs are flowered all the way around and have beaded flowers on the top and sides.

I like pale blue and yellow together. They make me think sunshine and flowers!
Update: Blue is Sold.



This Little Sweetie decided to perch herself on top of the egg to better see all the little Chickie Dears inside - she has to make sure they are behaving themselves!
Update: Sold


All three of these Little Sweetie Easter Eggs are available in my shop.
I'm definitely thinking spring and looking forward to some warmer weather - yeah I'm kind of rushing it. Even though CT hasn't had much in the way of snowstorms as of yet, I still can't wait to get rid of the cold, gray days. There is something about the start of spring - the first smell of warmer weather, the first flower buds, the first day you can run through the grass with bare feet - ah it is my favorite time of year!
Happy spring dreams!

Oh boy the little sweeties are ADORABLE!!! If I wasn't saving up to be able to meet you I'd be snapping them all up, they're just gorgeous Karla!
Hope it warms up for you soon enough. A very warm one here in Melbourne today at 84F, feels warmer than that though!
