I hope you like it ...And,,, I am working on a new pattern for Easter..
Here is a pic of just one little area I decided to place a few of my Spring/Easter goodies...If you like the little bunny here, remember he is one of my patterns for sale on my sidebar,,

A *New* Spring Doodle " Chick and Eggs"

I was up quite late last night and decided to start doodling...I think I may burn out folks with bunnies, so I love chicks and baskets so here it is.
Also, finished up my wool applique using my bunny sampler doodle, but I started out with a smaller piece of brown wool than I would have liked, and ended up having to change things up a bit, like the lettering and such. I'm not sure how I am going to finish it yet? pillow, frame it, maybe put on a basket ??? We'll see...

Have a great day everyone !

Blown away by this talent....

I love offering my Freebie Doodles, and I especially love seeing the finished pieces from other folks in various mediums... Well, This is a simply AWSOME hooked rug done by Rhonda from " My Glory Stars " Blog, and she sells on Ebay... I love the colors and combinations and shading she used... What amazing talent ! Make sure to check out all of her other beautiful finished projects and you can go to Ebay and maybe be the lucky bidder on one !!

I was inspired by her work, to do something myself, so I am doing up a wool applique in earth tones...I just started cutting out so I'll post progress......
Have a great day... We are off on a short road trip, but when I get back I'll be working on my wool piece...

Finished this sweet little pillow...

This is a great, quick pattern by Teresa of " Teresa's Primitive Treasures"( the larger pillow, but she did make the smaller one in the dolls lap also) for a sweet little pillow to tuck somewhere.. The pattern is for sale on her Etsy shop. I finished it in a few hours. It would have taken much less time except for keeping close tabs on my 3 year old Grandson, Caden. Here are a few pics of him all dressed and posing as his " bad self"
