Happy Easter Time

Easter is so early this year and we have had a chilly spring break.
Yesterday we cleaned and re-arranged Em's room--yikes, the dust bunnies!
Em has a bird feeder right outside her window 
and the birds kept us company as we gathered three bags of trash and giveaway. 
I moved our dining room table as well, under a window, just to get it into a different spot. 
Somehow that room--really just an extension off the living room has never been right.
It is a thruway and is hardly ever used, dismal ambiance.
Now we have a better view from the windows and more room.
I put out some knitted eggs in a dish for Easter.
I made them from leftover sock yarns with a couple of different patterns from the net.

Knitted Vest for Maggie

Here is Maggie again. :-)
Alicia Paulson has pinned her to a Pinterest board showing 
some of the fabulous Maggies that have been completed from her pattern and kit. 
The little vest I made up for her is not a very complicated pattern. 
The link for it is HERE.
Please let me know if you have any problems with it and enjoy!

Maggie's Done!

Well, here she is!!
I finished the kit for Maggie Rabbit from Alicia Paulson.
I am so pleased with how she turned out and the kit was a breeze to follow.
I made the knitted shawl that came with the kit 
and was inspired to design and make up a wee vest for her as well.
I can hardly wait to see the patterns for clothes that Alicia comes up with.

Maggie Rabbit!!!!!!

Oh, sweet day!
The cutest rabbit pattern I ordered from
Alicia Paulson of Posie Gets Cozy
is here!!!
I was so lucky to go to her site early enough last Friday to order.
 She sold out of all the kits in less than a day.
(she is going to restock) 
The kit I ordered has Liberty fabric in the Claire Auld pattern.
And like a geeky groupie I'll be keeping the personally signed thank you card.
I can hardly wait to see the other clothing patterns that she comes up with for her 
Maggie Rabbit.
