Easter projects

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.  I was busy up to the last moment making the girls' rabbits and baskets.  Here's a peak.....

Olivia's has the body of the Mimi Kirchner pattern on Purl Bee and then I just winged the head....


I felt a little like the movie, Coraline.


Lily's needed to be something that could go straight into her mouth....and it did.





I made the baskets from grocery bags and then cascarones from our eggs!!


Every holiday fiesta should have a little confetti!

And in the background, homemade chocolate covered marshmallows and....


this carrot garden cake.  I made it all the time when my kids were little.  What a joy to bring it back for our grand kids.  A considerable amount of work but well worth it!
