Father Winter has yet to let go of his tight grip on Maine. But we are hopeful. Though we experienced 50 degree weather this week, we were sent a snowstorm yesterday in order to remind us that spring is not yet here. (Even though it has arrived here
). But, that won’t stop us from preparing for it!
I spent a good portion of this snowy weekend sewing up some sweet Easter tote bags for a handmade gift exchange that my friend Harmony
is hosting. There are 13 children involved in the exchange, but I made more than was needed.
Because these were made for kids, I gave faces to the appliqued bunnies. But I prefer them without faces, as seen below.
Here are some close-up examples of these little cuties…
If anyone out there is interested in purchasing one, or having one custom made, I will sell them for just $10 each. They are fully lined, measure about 9″ x 7″, and can come in several fabric variations. Just ask 🙂
I see the kids using these on Easter morning to collect their Easter eggs. And speaking of eggs … look at these beauties that were just collected this morning here at the homestead…
The chickens are certainly ready for Spring! Are you?
