Afghan for Karen

My friend Karen's husband Jimmie has a very aggressive form of cancer that he's in treatment for.

A wonderful lady named Sheri in one of Karen's Yahoo groups decided that we should send her an 11x11 square and she'd combine them all as a gift to Karen. What an honor to be included in such a project. I wish I could be there with Karen when she opens the afghan.

Wendy called last night requesting yet another bunny. Her old (previous, not age) babysitter is having a baby girl next month. I had lavender on hand so here is bunny #3 for Wendy.

I have said it before........ this is an amazing pattern for a quick baby gift. I started and finished it last night.

Sewing is not what I do.......

..........but when I saw the pattern for these guys in the Joann's catalog I fell in love. The purple one is for me and the green one is a thank you gift for Dona's mom. She feeds us Corned Beef & Cabbage every year for St. Patrick's Day. I think a green monster is a great thank you gift.

I love easy and fast projects

Wendy called me after work today and asked me for another bunny for a baby gift. These bunnies work up so fast. I finished him a few hours later. :-)

This doesn't look like Easter to me.........

..... but it is an Easter gift. In an Easter Swap my partner said she loved this shawl and these are two of her favorite colors. Even if it's not Eastery it's what she likes and I think that's more important.
