Happy Easter

Hope everyone had a great Easter. Samantha, Chris and the grand dogs came up today. They went swimming and we cooked pork roast, mashed potatoes, chicken scampi, roasted corn on the cob and dinner rolls. I made Samantha and Chris an Easter Basket. I have always made her one, I don't think she will ever get too old for me to make one for her. When she has kids, I guess I will be making up Easter baskets for the whole family.

I have been working on some bag holders this week. The one above is my #440 Prairie doll bag holder. I used the logo feed sack from www.eweandmeprintables .com and made little feed sack pillow to fit in her arm. These sold very well for me last year. I put the pattern on the sidebar for a special price of $4.00 for this week only, if you are interested.

I had a customer order a couple of sets of the prairie pillows. I made these in blue ticking fabric, with a sprig of Sweet Annie. I filled these with the cedar sawdust shaving. I also added some potpourri in with the sawdust to make them smell really good.

I also had a special order this week for my Miz Ruby doll. She will be the last one in the original colors. I finally used up the last of the fabric for her apron. I had found the apron fabric on Ebay and of course, can't find it anywhere else. I hate to use some of my fabrics, because I know they can't ever be replaced.

I had went to Walmart yesterday and found a float for the little dog Harley to use in the pool. She went for a test float today. She wasn't too sure about it. I know the water is still way too cold for me to get in, but Samantha braved it. Chris donned the goggles an vacuumed the bottom for us. Poor hubby is on midnight shift and got up at 1:00 and we had to eat by 5:00 for him to get to work. He woke up with a migraine and has 12 hours tonight, plus he has to stay over for about 3 hours in the morning, before he gets to drive home. I always worry about the 30 minute drive, afraid he will fall asleep.

Carmen is having a e-pattern and mailed pattern on her site: So please check it out. She is still waiting to hear about the getting in to too see the specialist, she getting the run around from the doctors. So please keep her in your prayers.
