I guess this means it's time to show my Easter Tree! I've had it up since the St. Patrick's tree came down. I've always loved sweet bunnies and lambs, so Easter decorations are darling to me! This year I have cross stitch, bought ornaments, silk flowers, palm crosses from previous Palm Sundays, and some precious little things my son made when he was young!
In the right photo, you see a cute "hatchling" with a purple bow, designed by Sharon Welch, and located here. The sweet brown and white bunny is a Prairie Schooler from A Prairie Year # 13.
I love the fat little orange carrot--I pulled it from some chart--I don't remember which one, but it's easy to find Easter charts with carrots! I used some precious Easter fabric for finishing, and some egg printed ribbon! At the bottom of the photo, you can see one of my son's little toilet paper roll bunnies that he made for our place cards one year at Easter!!! They're getting a little smashed, but I still put them out--best place to save them is on the tree!
I must have really liked this bunny, because I stitched it twice!!! They look different, though, so I hang both! I found it here, and it works up quickly! The one on the left is on linen, and finished simply with ribbon stripes. The one on the right is on green aida and finished with lime and pink flowered cotton and some left-over pillow trim! The hanger is attached with hot pink bunny buttons!
Here's a cute sheep that's part of a larger freebie by Jardin Prive, found here. I used a button/lace edging and added a sweet sheep button on the right side of the lace. This sweet variegated pink bunny is one of Homespun Elegance's eggs in Spring Eggs I. I was afraid I couldn't sew an egg shape at the time I made this, but I have made several since then!!
The sweet little yellow bunny on the left is a freebie from Kirsten Schmidt but I cannot seem to locate it online...The sweet egg-shaped hot pink Easter bunny is a freebie from Sylvia, located here.
In the right photo, you see the sweet sheep again. The darling egg shaped bunny with pink rick rack edging is part of a freebie from Val's Stuff, found here. The cute little pink Peep pattern isn't online any more, but this one is probably the closest thing to it! I used a hot pink bunny button and a carrot button to attach the hanger ribbon.
On the upper left, you see a peach flower from Prairie Schooler Spring Miniatures. I added a little bee button and used some green African print fabric with it. The sweet green bunny in the center is a freebie by Alexandrina and located here. It's finished with cute dotted ribbon trim. The two sweet turquoise rabbits with the ruched ribbon are by Nouveau Encore Designs and located here. I used only the rabbits from the chart. You see some crochet-looking carrots on the tree--I didn't make these! They came from the mark-down shelf at Tuesday Morning a few years ago--I think they are precious!
I did go to Memphis again at the end of last week. I did buy more things...I may need an intervention! It's been so much fun, though, so I'll probably go back again soon! I'll show you my purchases on the next post!
Thank you for visiting! I hope you all have a happy and blessed Easter!
