Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Crocheting Spring Flowers

Hard to believe we have already had Easter. Just doesn't seem right to me. Those early Easters just messes me up. Hope everyone had a good Easter and enjoyed time with family and friends. Well anyway.....spring is really here and it is time to think of pretty pastels and flowers. Here is a tutorial from K&T Art on how to crochet big and small springtime flowers. I use to make lots of these for different projects, but haven't in some time...hmmmm....better get back to making some of those.  :)

Happy crocheting!

Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Vintage Easter

Still time to do a little decorating before Easter next week. :)  Easter colors are so pretty. I love all the pastels and pretty pinks and yellows and flowers so let's visit Etsy and see what vintage Easter items we can find. :)

Speaking of pretty pinks, yellows and flowers how about this cute lamb planter from TheShabbyChateau.

This lovely vintage doily from LittleDixieVintage would look nice sitting on a table with an Easter arrangement on it. 

Oh my look at the beautiful colors in this porcelain egg trinket box from vintagebiffann. Sit this on a table and you would surely add to your Easter decor. I absolutely love the colors on this!

How about hanging this suncatcher from MyWanderingEye in your window. What a beautiful suncatcher.  

So there is still time to do a little bit more decorating before Easter. Having Easter in March is unusual, but it does happen sometimes. Kind of confuses my calendar tho....LOL! :)

Have a Happy Easter everyone!

Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Bunny Treat Bags Tutorial

I just noticed that Easter is early this year! Oh my.....I am way behind schedule on everything!! I had saved this tutorial for bunny treat bags and thought I would share it with you. If you have lots of pastel and Easter charm packs that you need a project to make with them this tutorial from Sew Can She would be a good one for them. Great for putting that Easter candy in for all those kiddies. 

Happy sewing!
