Too Early For Easter?

Posted on | January 31, 2017 | 16 Comments

It is probably not too early to be planning for Easter, although, like many, I am always surprised at seeing hot cross buns in the supermarkets the day after Christmas.

I have finished a little Easter mini from Anni Downs. The stitching was done last year but I had not added the borders and done the quilting. At least I am now ready for this Easter.

Now I will jump to another season. I also had a Christmas stitchery that had been finished a while back and is now a mini cushion. I think it is from Teddlywinks.

I am finding that making little cushions is a good way to display these smaller stitcheries, especially when display space is limited. They can go just about anywhere.

It is the last day of January and lots of families have children heading back to start the first day of a new school year. Good luck to all of them and special thought for all their teachers.

Cheers, Karen

    Never too early for Easter, before we know the bunnies are here! (At least in the shops!) Very cute Easter bunny quilt. Cute cushion too.

    Your stitcheries are just so sweet. I like the way you make them into little cushions. I’m very late at commenting, January was almost a week ago! Time flies, that’s for sure!

  • Karen, I am fairly certain that I’ve responded to this post before but my note is not here. I’m sorry if this adds to the problem. I’ve been specifically looking for your blog posts and just thought that you were taking long breaks.

  • Your stitcheries are always so pretty. I’ve been having a meander through the posts I missed and enjoyed seeing all of them.
    Embroidery is not one of my strong points, so I am always happy to such pretty ones here!

    Since I found out that I wasn’t seeing your posts, I decided to look back and see what I have missed. I am amazed with the spread of your artistic talent….knitting, card making, embroidery and quilting….wow!!! And even some gardening as well!!! The cards would be wonderful keepsakes for anyone who received them. I love the cat quilt…cant wait to see it finished.

    I agree about making the little stitcheries into cushions. They are much easier to tuck into a tight space than finding a wall to hang them on. I love the two green fabrics you chose for your Easter stitchery too! They are so fresh and Spring-like!
