Time for an Easter Tree!!

I love fixing a tree for each holiday.  I got my Easter Tree finished and want to share it with you!  In addition to my cross-stitch ornaments, I have many different kinds of cute Easter things on the tree.  I added silk wisteria to the top this year.  Below are some photos of individual ornaments.



Many of these were precious freebies--some are rather old and I'm not even sure who designed them. But, the "hatchling" with the purple dotted bow above is by Sharon Welch.  I don't know who designed the cute carrot, but I think it must have come from a larger design.
The green bunny at the right is from Alexandrina at matryoskabiscornue.  The cute little peach flower is from Prairie Schooler Spring Miniatures--I added a little bee button! The two turquoise bunnies with the ruched ribbon are by Noveau Encore Designs.

When I began making these ornaments, I was trying to use up all the little fabric scraps I had. You know--they're too good to throw away and not good enough to keep???  Many of these are on various colors of Aida.  Some, like the cute bunny at the right are on linen.


The egg shaped bunny is from a freebie by Val's Stuff.   I don't know where the pink PEEP came from--it was in my freebie notebook, so I'm just not sure!  The sweet sheep is from a larger freebie by Jardin Prive.  I put cute button edging across the bottom and a little sheep button on the right side of the edging.
  

This sweet pink bunny is one of Homespun Elegance's eggs in Spring Eggs I.  I didn't think I could make the egg shape at that time, so I just made a rectangle with ribbon on the edges.  I don't know what lovely thread I used...

The tiny yellow bunny is by Kirsten Schmidt and the hot pink Easter egg with ruched edges is by Sylvia from syku66 blog.
I must have liked this bunny because this is the second time I stitched it!!!  This is some type of Christmas thread on pale green Aida.  I had some leftover pillow fringe that I ran across the bottom, for something unusual!  The bunny chart was a freebie by Cheryl A. Smith.


I hope you enjoyed this little peek into my Easter decorating!  Please tell your friends about my new blog and help me get some followers!  Thank you for your visit, and please come by again soon!
