In Holiday & Seasonal

Visit me today over at Knotions where I talk about Thrift Shop Savvy: In Search of Sweaters! Also there’s another (!) chance to win a copy of Sewing Green!

I’ve been so preoccupied with book-blah-blah and kids home for Spring Break that I haven’t even decorated yet for Easter. I made these little needle felted eggs a while back, so bright and cheery! Tomorrow’s my birthday so I think we’ll do some family egg dying (with silk ties, like last year!) and maybe catch a movie.

What else should I do on my birthday? My mother says I should spurge on a pair of new shoes. :)

    Absolutely beautiful Easter Basket!! The colors say “Spring” and I love the texture! And a very Happy Birthday to you, also. May you have some relaxing time to just enjoy the new number that you are experiencing, hahaha. I really love what you do with all the recycled stuff. It has made me think differently about everything I see.

    I love the eggs! And the bird behind them too! I just purchased a felting tool, and it’s on my list of things to learn! Thanks!

    Happy birthday! When my mother tells me to splurge on a pair of new shoes it’s because SHE thinks I NEED them, not because it’s what I want … hopefully your mom is more generous than that :-). If new birthday shoes will make you smile … well have at them … if not choose your own fun.
