Crafting On :: Almost Easter

Another full week here. It seems Spring is the time we struggle to catch our breath before the next breeze brings change.  I cannot believe Easter is just a few days away!  Here's our Palm Sunday papercut (or whatever you call those).  It's from All Year Round.  It was harder than the others I've done, but you only make them once and have them for years.

Palm Sunday

Here's our bread cockerel, or one of them.
We ground our own flour and used the recipe in All Year Round.
I did a much better job of shaping them this year.

And here's part of a hat I accidentally knit for myself!
It's another pilot cap and it's entirely too big for Laurel or the others.
After all that work (and just the ties to go), I'm claiming it.
I'm always happy to knit another hat.

My Pilot

I call these the Quicker Knickers.
They're from an older McCall's pattern, though I modified it.
No zipper in these, front and back interchangeable.
No buttons on the bottoms, either, for ease of maker and wearer.
We call them the Green Valley knickers or the Peter and Fonz Pants.


Lastly, another bit of fun from All Year Round.
These are the flying streamer bags and they are such a joy.
The fabric is a reversible canvas (or something),
and the opposite of each is a different shade of blue.
To watch them go through the air is delightful.

I've really enjoyed the Hawthorn Press Festivals books in the short time I've had them. I can see many more projects coming from them, especially since they use common supplies. Speaking of supplies, it's time to tidy up my sewing machine and get on with supper.

Those are some really sweet knickers! Oh, I do so adore that look on little boys. :)

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
