    Default Happy Spring / Easter Wallhanging

    This is one of those projects that took longer than it should have, and I made every mistake in book. Nevertheless, finished is better than perfect, and it turned out okay. This is from a pattern by Shabby Fabrics, which had one bunny holding an Easter egg. I wanted something that was more spring than Easter, so I gave the big bunny a little friend and used a cookie cutter as a template for the carrot shape.

    I don't usually name my projects, but am calling this one "Sharing Ways Are Best," in honor of my mother. That's what she says whenever one us has something she would like -- a piece of chocolate, a cookie, or whatever. It usually starts with "What are you eating?" and when we reply, she says "Sharing ways are best." This does not work in reverse, however, if she is the one eating the chocolate.

    Thanks for looking, and have a Happy Easter, Happy Spring!
