easter projects?

this morning i got to thinking about easter this weekend. it's been creeping toward me all month. i've been watching it approach out of the corner of my eye while i madly scramble to complete so many other projects. now it's almost here and our annual extended family egg hunt on saturday, as well. i'm hosting my entire family (parents, seven siblings and their spouses, 25 or so grandkids) for a brunch and the hunt in less than a week. yet this morning, i couldn't help but wish i had made some cute spring skirts for my girls for this weekend. really, could it be that hard? maybe some aprons for their baskets? everything else on my sewing block can wait until next week. except maybe the four square blanket i need to make for a baby shower on thursday. while i was thinking of possible easter projects, i remembered some bright and spring-y prints i recently picked up. they'd do for aprons for sure:

so should i forget everything i need to do, dig up a pattern or maybe run to the store? sure wouldn't be responsible, but golly, easter is this weekend! when else do you sew for your chickies if not for easter?


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
    Wow, I applaud you for taking on so many people on one day! I'd get exhausted just thinking about it.
    The fabric you chose are beautiful and definitely springy and appropriate for Easter. Can't wait to see what you create. I would love to learn how to quilt.


  2. Most definitely sew for Easter! I'm kinda thinking about sewing more =)


a kind word is always appreciated. thank you for your visit.
