It’s that time of year again!  I’m always tempted to buy more chocolate in egg and bunny shapes–love the malted milk eggs. I just wish they had more options in dark chocolate. I’m also inspired to create more with bright colors, so I couldn’t resist creating these Easter egg coasters. So easy and fun.

I also include my favorite baskets in this post.  The Floppy-eared bunny basket from the Locking Loops book is a favorite.  The colorful green and purple is a favorite with my readers.  Can’t help but imagine a fun kids tea party with these coasters…

The new Vintage Weave fabric strips in spring colors came in and they just made me smile. The colors are gorgeous. They remind me of spring, so fresh and vintage-y in a cool retro kind of way. I just had to create something. Problem was I didn’t have that much time–mostly because I’m late in...
