It was tonight that I realized Easter is just over a week away. I think I panicked!!! Then I remembered that I just finished Ean's outfit. Somehow over the course of the past week with all the sick little ones I managed to squeeze in 5 minutes here and there. I knew I was crazy when I was attempting to embroider bullions with Ean sitting in my lap. However, I must confess that is the norm around here with four little ones. I am happy to fit in 5 to 10 minutes here and there throughout each day.
So I do have one sweet little outfit completed. This is a Creations by Michie' pattern #102. It is a cute one. I was inspired by Martha's sweet little bubble that you can see here. However, I knew I wanted this one to be more Easter-ish. So after I exhausted all my ideas for embroidery, I finally remembered I had these unique little buttons. I cannot give proper credit for the idea but I know it was in a past Creative Needle issue....that I don't have. Basically this cute little chick is made using these two mother of pearl buttons and some floss bullions. Very sweet!!!
I'll be back soon with pictures of Ean in his sweet little outfit. Too precious for words!!!
Thanks again for all the well wishes you sent this way. People are finally perking up a little. Today the sun was shining and they actually wanted to sit outside for a few minutes instead of laying around inside all day. I even opened the windows hoping to air the house out a bit. I am hopeful they continue to feel better and that tomorrow is even better than today!!!
