Holy Week

Holy Week

Today is already Monday of Holy Week. Yesterday we celebrated both Palm Sunday and the little guy’s birthday! (How is he 6 already? Seriously?) And Lent has sped by! Our Lenten spiral is almost full of candles, meaning Easter is almost here: This week when we add a candle, we will say the Collects for … Continue reading

Good Friday

Good Friday

Today is Good Friday, and I am going to be completely honest: I dislike Good Friday. It depresses me endlessly. We read Isaiah 52:13-53:12 during the Good Friday liturgy and it makes me want to cry. He was despised and rejected by others; a man of suffering and acquainted with infirmity; and as one from … Continue reading

A little bunny play set

I made these little play sets for a swap recently. Little wood bunnies I woodburned and watercolor stained, with cork and fabric mushrooms, a flowery meadow play mat, and a watercolor stained wooden bowl and milk bottle for Bunny to use for a snack. The whole thing fits inside a wood lidded box. In case … Continue reading

Last Easter Post

Last Easter Post

I made the Wee One a bean bag toss game for Easter! It is really cute and was fun to make. I just cut out some cute little chicks and animals in egg cups fabric, paired it with a backing fabric, and stuffed them with rice. Then I made three “targets”– circles cut from fabric … Continue reading

Bunnies & Chicks & an Almost Birthday Boy

The Wee One’s birthday is Friday! I can’t believe my baby is going to be four. Giant sigh. Where have the last four years gone? Time has flown by so quickly… Because Friday is also Good Friday, his preschool is closed so he is taking in birthday treats for his classmates tomorrow. They are already … Continue reading

I like to make a little something for my Gram and Great Aunt for each of the holidays, so I was trying to think of just the right the thing to make for them. Then I saw this post from Buzzmills with a DIY for felt daffodil pins. Perfect! I changed the pattern up just … Continue reading

Easter Egg Paper Stained Glass

The Wee One and I made a couple Easter projects this week. I had been wanting to try one of those paper stained glass projects for a while, so when I came across this one for Easter, we took the leap and made one! I did the cutting with an x-acto knife, then the Wee … Continue reading

Bunny time!

Bunny time!

As promised, here is the bunny pattern to make one of these cute little guys. But first, I need to tell you something– my baby is in preschool today! Oh heaven help me get through this.  I’m only joking a little bit. I’m not ready for my baby to be growing up and going to … Continue reading

My fabric arrived this week and I love it sooo much. Isn’t it gorgeous? I am so delighted to get to work with this fabric. Have you signed … Continue reading

Natural dyes

Natural dyes

As I mentioned in my post from the weekend, we used some natural dyes this year for our Easter eggs. I was super lucky and just got to enjoy the coloring process and not do any of the prep work (like the several hours of simmering ingredients), as my son’s godfather did all of that. … Continue reading
