Some “Extra” Easter pictures…

Easter came too quickly for me this year and once I realized just how close it was, there wasn’t enough time to get all my pictures in. So, I decided even though Easter has past, I’m still going to share some of my pictures… first a few from Linda and Susette and then I’ll share mine…

Linda dressed her girls in their Easter finery and they do look adorable! Take a peek…

If you click on any picture it will enlarge…

Susette decorated her table in a very “Easter-like” way…

She took a cute picture of her grand kids, Riya and Krish… and said she still thinks Riya believes in the Easter bunny…sure looks like it!

How about some marbelized eggs from Italy and the other ones are from Kenya…

She certainly has me beat with her green thumb… look at this stunning Iris!

…and one last picture of her new Easter house mixed among her other houses on her patio…

Okay, now it’s my turn… I was very blessed by many of my readers here on this blog… First let me show you a few cards…

Look at this card…it has a sweet little girl with her skirt made from a hankie… I think an outfit using it is in order… there was a little note on the inside saying it was fine to do so… :o)

Seems to me like the chickies have overtaken the bunnies this year… :o) Look at this adorable chick… the reader said it was for George… in honor of his new little baby bantam chicks… I might have to “babysit” it in my sewing room… :o) It looks almost real, doesn’t it?

It even came with a little booklet showing lots of other animals that can be bought…

Oops… a bunny sneaked into my post… look at this sweet pincushion…

And one last gift… a sweet pillow called “My Prayer Garden” with all kinds of little charms and the prettiest stitching…

I almost have no words to adequately say thank you to my readers who blessed me so much! What wonderful and charming and heart felt gifts I received. Thank you very much and may the Lord bless you many times over for how sweet you have been to me and my hubby. If I left anyone’s out… please forgive me… sometimes I get something and I know right where I want it to go… so I put it away… and may have missed it…

Well, I finished my alterations…(which I don’t really do…)…it took me 8 hours to fix this dress and now I’m wondering about her bill… my least favorite part of the whole thing… (well, maybe not this time… it was a big job!)
Anyway, I’m done with it and will deliver it to her and then it will be back to dolly dresses! YAY!

See you tomorrow,
Blessings, Jeanne

Some “Belated” Easter tidbits!

Thank you for all the sweet Easter wishes you lavished upon me yesterday! I was very blessed by them. If you happened to miss “MY” Easter card to you, you can see it by going to yesterday’s post and then clicking the link I provided… ~ Wonderful Easter ~

I needed to make something else for the picnic our church was having after our Easter service this morning. Having already made a meatloaf, I wanted something “fun” to take. There are these chocolate no-bake cookies that I make all the time and thought I could do something with them. This time when I made them, I added a couple of Brach’s Jelly Beans while the cookies had just been scooped out and were still warm and soft. I sort of squished them down into the cookie so they’d stay put. So I called them my bird’s nest cookies. (We actually ended up not staying at the picnic, as my hubby wasn’t feeling great, so I have no idea if they went over well or not…) I snapped 2 quick pictures of them, so you can at least see them…

If you click on any of the pictures, they will enlarge.

Next I wanted to share something Hannah, (my niece’s daughter) made for school. (Hannah is the one I made the little flower girl dress for). She was in a competition at her school and was supposed to make a Peeps diorama… Hannah made hers and called it “Away in a Manger.” She didn’t win, but she made the newspaper! Woohoo Hannah!

Now let’s get a little more personal… my brother was sending some Easter pictures from “LONG” ago back and forth to us yesterday and I thought I’d share some of our early 1960’s Easter’s. (no laughing allowed!) I’m not sure which makes me laugh more… the grin on my brother’s face or the placement of the red bow in my hair…
It’s funny, but I still remember the feel of these dresses…they were a jersey fabric and slinky is the best way I can describe them. I LOVED mine!

(I’m not sure what’s up with the dates below some of the pictures… unless Easter came in “August” in 1965!)

We have called this the “cake hats” picture for as long as I can remember…

Aug 65

Here’s one of Cindy and me, when we lived in Texas. Cindy was looking down so I better give her another shot…

…and here is my sweet little sister, Deb, all decked out in navy and white…

It was fun seeing them again. Does anyone still wear gloves at Easter??? Inquiring minds want to know!

Last up, I have some new pictures of the baby chicks.. although they might be considered toddlers now. They are in the “ugly stage” as my hubby calls it…

I did get some pictures from some of you and will probably post them tomorrow. I have to alter a bridesmaid dress for someone and won’t have any time to sew for my dolls, so look for more Easter pictures tomorrow. You’ll want to see them.

Well, I’m signing off for today. I hope had a wonderful Sunday and didn’t eat too much chocolate!

See you tomorrow,
Blessings, Jeanne

Who’s Ready for the Easter Parade?

I’ve made a lot of Spring and Easter Dresses since I started selling my doll clothing on Ebay in 2006. As long as there are pretty new fabrics that come out each Spring, and customers who want what I make, I’ll keep making more. In case you are new to my blog, I LOVE TO SEW!

My “girls” secretly planned a St. Patrick’s Day Parade without me knowing it, and I got wind of a new Easter Parade being planned for Saturday. I told them I would help with this one and found as many pictures in the archives as I could to share with you.

If you want to see the details on a dress, just click on the picture. It will enlarge.

Let’s see who is starting things off…

It’s a long parade…are you still watching?

Still watching? We’re getting close to the end…

Well, did you stay for the whole parade? There were lots of dresses to look at, and I hope you saw something you hadn’t seen before! Now it’s time to fold up your lawn chair and head home! See you next year!

I won’t even ask you if you had a favorite, BUT…if you did, I’d love to know which one it was! :o)

Tomorrow is Easter and I won’t have a written post, but I’ll put something on for a post.

See you soon,
Blessings, Jeanne
