Brought out the daffodil-like afghan I thrifted a while back.
Set up the eggs.
And some bunnies. The print is from ZouZou's Basement on Etsy.
This one is ceramic, not chocolate. Clever though, right?
Cut some real forsythia and made some pretend forsythia.
The latter (inspired by this) is pretty self-explanatory but here's how I did it:
Tie some embroidery floss (this is DMC 444 and it's a remarkably good match for actual forsythia blossoms) around your twig and clip off the tail.
Add a dab of glue, cut the thread, and use your fingers to smooth down the end.
Voila! Now it's Spring inside the house as well as outside.
And there was still time for the important stuff. Like Busytown. (Look at those adorable curled-up fingers and feet.)
And getting inspired by a new book. No joke, it's blowing my mind.
And finally, this is not really apropos of spring, but I thought some of you might be interested in this interview I recently did with artist Kathryn Clark about her Foreclosure Quilts series. Wonderful project and a truly fascinating conversation.
