Loving the Long Weekend!

Here's a photo from yesterday. I feel like I should be wishing people a Merry Christmas instead of Happy Easter (except that it's light out)!

It's a perfect weekend for craftiness, however, as my disaster of a sewing room attests to! Here's a little creature to stick in my little 6-year-old friend's birthday backpack. His mom says he's in a monster phase. I have to say, I'm not really talented in the 3D sewing department, but I was inspired by this and these in creating this little monster pillow. He's made out of corduroy pants and jeans, with knitted hair, and a rickrack pocket mouth.

I also got started on my Spring Four Seasons Swap quilt. At least I can have a little spring indoors!

Merry Christmas back at you! It's like that here too, with a combination of early Easter and a winter that will not go away.

Your monster is wonderful! Love his eyes. :)

As I was scrolling through blogs this morning (I always look at the pictures first) your little monster caught my eye ... it looked like it had personality!! Only upon reading the text did I realise what it was. I bet the new owner will love him/it :)
