Easter Fun!

My children are going to think I am crazy! It all started with the idea of making an Easter Basket for my sweet little grand daughter. I found this awesome tutorial here at Positively Splendid! And that it is, just Splendid. I love it. I loved it so much I decided to make all of the kids an Easter Basket. I embroidered their names on too. My son in law got the Texas chili cook off fabric and no name. I am gong to hide the Sunday morning and make them look for them. You are never too old for some old fashioned FUN! I am so excited about how they turned out.
Her name is a little too high, live and learn.
So FUN! I got a little excited and decided to make another type , a little easier. this one for my husband and me!
One other thing, I finished a dress for my daughter. She did the smocking and I did the dress cutting, pleating and construction. Nice joint effort. Turned out just lovely!
One last fun thing. My husband built me an owl house for Christmas and we hung it in January. well, it is now inhabited by Mr. AND Mrs. Hootie! they are so fun to watch. Happy Easter everyone.
One last picture of my beautiful daughter and her husband wrapped in one of my quilts out in a field of Bluebonnets. It was a cool day, and with this mamma, there's always a quilt.
