calico eggs & bunny


When your threadwork becomes unraveled, you simply re-sew, re-thread or re-crochet any stitches that have come undone. However -- when life seems to unravel at an amazing speed, you sometimes simply stand there.

I've been standing. And leaning. And trying to restitch.

Thank goodness for a husband with huge shoulders.

And yes, we are now seeing brighter days -- hey! No one told me raising a teen-age daughter involved so many heart-wrenching decisions.....


Now--there is stitching to be done!......

Ahhhh. Yes. I can not forget to thank you lovely blogirl-friends who expressed concern about my absence! A virtual hug to you. xxoo



The pattern for these calico eggs & bunny is from a book that my great-aunt was throwing away. And I don't even have the book, just these few pattern pages from the book. Ugh, I know!




The egg is so very easy and quick to sew.


And the bunny -- so, so cute!




Eggs-actly what I needed.

That is SUCH a cute bunny! I have a four year old daughter, so I don't have quite as much drama, but I'm sure it's coming.

The colors and prints you chose for the eggs and bunny are perfect. So cute.

Take heart - teenage daughters grow up to become mature young women. It just seems to take forever sometimes, but it comes. blessings, marlene

It's so nice to see you back after a long absence. I've missed your posts. Your family are very lucky to have you to look after them.

The bunny and eggs are so cute! The colours you've used are so "you". To think the pattern was nearly thrown away!

Hi Dawn,
So glad to see you back and the bunny and the eggs are adorable. We have 2 teenage daughters too...a junior and a senior. If you ever want to talk, let me know. I think you have my home email from the grandmother's flower garden talk we had. If not you can email through my blog.

Mom of one of those said dd sending you cyber hugs. Here is your happy thought, I had 2 heart attacks due to said dd and my stress level. Do NOT let that happen to YOU!
