The big quilt is taking longer than I had expected. I am over half done then the binding - not really looking forward to that part. This is the biggest quilt I've ever quilted.
I really enjoyed this Easter. The Church I go to had 2 services on Saturday night and we went to the early service. Then Sunday I slept a bit late and put my bunny cake together and went to my sister's and had a wonderful time. My nephew hunted eggs and we had a wonderful meal. Angel made brownies with strawberry's on the side that were covered in strawberry icing (oh that was to die for) and I made a bunny cake. My mom used to use jelly beans for the eyes and nose. I was lazy and just printed off a cute face and used that. The cake was chocolate and was so moist it was hard to handle and ice. So I called him freckles cause he had a few chocolate crumbs in his white icing. The coconut covered up those for the most part.
After a too long break in jewelry making I am getting back at it. These were a custom order and I like the way they turned out. This shows a few of the steps to making such a simple little earring. I love how the light catches on the hammered edges.
My nephew said I am obsessed with octopus and pigs. Pigs tend to end up in my kitchen and the guest bath for such a small room has 5 octopi in there. I guess this is what happens when you live alone you let your quirky out. So this is a little 3" x 9" and the background was done with the flow paint technique. Tried out a new paint pen for the drawing.
