Here is what I'm working on today: Eliza's Easter Bunny. Naked, but soon to be clothed . . .
She's made from an old McCall's Crafts pattern (3760)—I used this same pattern to make a Christmas bunny for one of Karolyn's friends back when she was in the 7th grade, and she is 30 now. (No, I never throw anything away; why do you ask?)
Currently in the works are a pair of green bloomers, trimmed with eyelet that I've been carting around for at least fifteen years, and a flowered dress with a pink apron. Everything came from The Stash, except the eye buttons; I thought I had some, but apparently I used them for some other critter. Which necessitated a trip to the fabric store on Saturday afternoon . . . and while I was there I picked up a pair of thread clips that I've been coveting for some time, to complete my scissor collection . . .
Now I own all of these, plus my pinking shears, a big pair of dressmaker shears, and the scalloping shears that I bought last year's Christmas money. And several pairs of old scissors suitable for cutting paper, Jiffy Grip, guinea feathers . . . I am still coveting a pair of applique scissors, but since I rarely work applique, and they are $26.95, I will probably covet for a while yet.
I'm sure it says something not terribly flattering about me that I am pleased as punch to have all these scissors. (And a box of 100 sewing machine needles in the size I use most.) But I don't care. Much.
While I was over there, I decided that Riley probably wouldn't really appreciate an Easter bunny nearly as much as these:
Behold the Easter Rex! (Well, they did lay eggs . . . )
And on that note I believe I shall return to the sewing machine.
