We will be painting wooden eggs, baking Hot Cross Buns, and wet felting an Easter bunny (photos to follow soon!)
I wanted to create a tiny Easter egg cozy for the wooden eggs we are painting, but the big day is approaching and I don't want to rush through anything this week, especially.
I found a pattern for a simple and quick Easter Egg basket (Ravelry notes here)...it's perfect for nestling one egg inside! I suppose you could also use it for Easter candies, but I'm not thinking about that right now, ahem. My stomach is already hurting from chocolate overload and the excess that this time of year brings... bah!
The wheatgrass for W's Easter basket is growing tall and fast. Until Easter, I've displayed it on our ever growing Nature Table (thanks to the playschool children!) They love to run their hands through it, and I can understand why...it is so soft to the touch.
Ah yes. Here is the not-so-quickly knitted Easter bunny for W. This pattern gave me a lot of trouble, what with the endless amounts of seaming and easy ways to make cosmetic mistakes. I got a bit frustrated and didn't even finish the final arm detail as of yet. A good friend of mine is rewriting the pattern for DPN's and will hopefully share it with us soon!
All around us, the trees blossom and burst into color. Our days are happily spent in both the rain and sunshine....my thoughts rest on Easter and the deliverance it promises to bring. I'm looking forward to sharing photos from our Baptism and other festivities!
Until then, here is our playschool week in photos...
A snack prepared and enjoyed together
New curtains for the playroom
A puppet show which brings smiles to all (and W's new favorite pastime!)
A doll in my apron pocket for safe keeping
A handful of softness....
Sending you love and joy,
