Sweet Spring!!!

Spring is in the air! and Easter is just days away! I have fond memories of dressing up on Easter Sunday and heading off to church and the Easter baskets filled with chocolates. I thought of those memories when I designed a project several years ago.  I made little Easter egg pins from Woolfelt. I gave the pattern to my friends and asked if they would please make an egg for my "egg tree". And they did............

Each egg is made by a different quilting friend and somewhere I have a piece of paper that tells me exactly who made which eggs. I really need to tape it to the back of this frame! I hung it in my entry this year and think I will keep it up til Mother's Day ....... just because I like looking at it and being reminded of my quilty friends.

So, you may have noticed that there is nothing "on the line" this week. I decided to take a break from my "on the line" feature until after I recover from my surgery. As I write this, I am just hours away from going to the hospital and am looking forward to the surgery and getting back to my old self. To help pass the time today, I decided to make a spring wreath and decorate the front porch. I picked up a bunch of flowers at Dollar Tree last week and had fun putting them into a wreath and that yellow bucket........
I love the polka dot ribbon that I found at either Michael's or Joann's. The yellow bucket was one my grandson used to play with and I decided it would look good holding the artificial flowers that I am so good at growing. LOL!
The little bunny on the chair was a garage sale find. He's tied to the chair so he won't blow away in any spring wind or rainstorm. :-)
It was easy to just wrap some leaf vine around the wreath and then I cut apart the flower bunches and stuck them here and there in the wreath and voila! it was done! 
And just as I was taking these pictures, my friend Barb and her husband Tom, pulled into the driveway. They were bringing food so we can enjoy some nice meals after I get home from the hospital. We are going to enjoy muffins and a Crescent Roll Casserole and some Beef Barley Soup. I can hardly wait! Barb is a really good cook so this is a real gift!
Time to close this post and say ..........I'll be gone for a few days but will be back soon!
Have a great Monday!
