Celebrating Spring (amongst other things)

All this Easter egg hunting really put me in a Springtime mood.
I almost want to clean out my closests. Almost.
Instead, I stitched up a couple of new quilty paintings.
Spring makes me think of baby animals, so there you go.
Bunnies and Kitties and Bears, oh my!
Then, lest Easter be lonely, I stitched up a big ole group of holidays.
Oh sure, they're quiet right now, posing for their portraits and all, but it has been pure mayhem around here for the past week. When all those holidays get together, celebration is taken to a new level. It's that naughty little St. Patty that really stirs up the mischief. I keep telling her that she's much too young to drink. Plus, she keeps trying to slip green food coloring into the silliest of things.
And don't even get me started on that Easter bunny! Apparently, it's not just eggs he likes to hide. I still can't find my keys.

You'd think Halloween would be the trouble maker, but no. Besides eating all my candy and getting a little tummy ache, he's been quiet as a lamb. Come to think of it, maybe too quiet. . .

. . .

I hope all your days hold at least a small moment of celebration.


  1. I think Halloween definitely has that quiet but hmmmmmm, what you don't know look about him....may even be in cahoots with Thanksgiving..

    Wonderful :]

  2. I love your story of these little beings...
    I always follow your blog to see your new creations!

  3. gah! Killing me with this sweet perfection. I could look at it all the day long.

  4. These are darling, Jo! I love the little bunny, bear & kitty quilt--especially the patchwork blocks to the side. It looks like a blanket to me & oh, how little things love their snuggly blankets!

    They're beautiful!


  5. These are just beyond cuteness!!! I LOVE them.

  6. I am so tempted to bid on the holiday quilt! I am watching it in my ebay. Such a neat piece of holiday art that can be displayed all year!

  7. Aha! So that's where all my things disappear to. I'll try the overzealous Easter Bunny excuse next time my husband suggests I'd lose my head if it weren't attached. Your work is as beautiful as always. I do think Thanksgiving looks a tad naughty.

  8. Love the stories...and you know what they "watch for the quiet ones"...once again awesome...
