Happy Easter and Swoon Blocks


I stitched up this bunny in red pants pulling a chick in an egg cart from Red Brolly free patterns. It's prefect for holding Easter candy.

Some progress on the Swoon blocks, I was hoping to have them all done this week but we've had the best spring weather and it was time to get out in the garden. After gardening I'm pretty tired and don't get in my sewing room. Only three more blocks.....I'm really loving how it's turning out.

Have a great Easter weekend.

I love your Swoon blocks, and the Easter stitchery. I have downloaded a bunch of free patterns from Red Brolly - they are all so cute.

I'm jealous of your garden time! Our snow is melting, but very slowly. I'm really anxious to get back to gardening. It's mud season now; with a dog, that's one of my least favorite seasons and one that I hope passes quickly.

I love your Swoon blocks too! That pattern has been on my hit list for a while, but I'm still deciding on fabrics.

I'm so jealous of your garden time. We've barely warmed up here. It will be 50 today, but we're suppose to get cold again next week. I wish that it would warm up!!

I love the Swoon blocks too. They are coming along really nicely. You obviously enjoy making them. I recognised that Easter basket as being Red Brolly's as soon as I saw it. You have done a lovley job. I am pleased to hear that the weather is good so you can get out into the garden. It is good for the soul getting your hands into the earth and growing things.

The bunny bag is adorable but where's the candy? LOL! Would make a good Easter gift for a friend or family member. Or just for display.

I was ready to stitch the same pattern and didn't get it done. LOL Now it's ready for next year.

Aw I love the bunny/Easter stitichery. He's cute. Your swoon blocks look really good in traditional colours. I'm currently making mine up in the original Ruby fabrics. I am impressed with how big they are.

Your bunny bag is very cute. I stitched the stitchery last Easter but never got round to making the bag. Seeing yours has inspired me to dig it out and finish it up.
