A bunch of bunnies........

   Here are the little bunnies waiting to be lovingly stitched together.
  Ah! We can see!  They called for bead eyes but I didn't have an appropriate size so I just used black yarn and made French knots. 
Then they got stuffed and sewn up with love!  They could still use a hanging thread in case they want to hang out on an Easter tree somewhere.  I love these little guys and will be making more for myself to hang among the eggs on my Easter tree when it gets put up. lol!
Their Mom will be accompanying them on their journey.......remember I made her a while back and decided to hold off until Easter to send her to my daughter.  This was something she had "pinned" on one of her boards.....won't she be surprised?
Then I ran up town to get cards (Dollar store.....$.50 each).  I usually make my own and personalize them but I am out of printer ink so I had to buy some.
I got each of the grands a pack of sidewalk chalk as it is the season.  My older grandson used to go down in my basement and draw me beautiful pictures on rainy days.  I think I must be the only person alive who doesn't have a "finished" basement as he thought that was "so cool". LOL!
I got ingredients to make bird nests (like rice krispie treats but with chow mein noodles and you shape into nests while still warm and put 3 jelly beans in the nest).  I used to make them for my children when they were little.    
I'm also going to make Bunny Tails which will be my Italian Wedding Cookie recipe that I use at Christmas time.  I figured they look like bunny tails and they are so good!  There's quite a few recipes for them on All Recipes   This all has to be mailed so I can't exactly bake a cake.  Speaking of cakes though,  every year when my children were little, I would make a bunny cake surrounded by green tinted coconut and jelly beans but I would always put the black jelly beans under the tail.  I'm so bad!  Every year the kids would look to see if the black jelly beans were there under the tail and they would laugh and laugh when they found them.
We had a "red moon" last night but it didn't really look red to me but the clouds were sort of pink.  Does that count?  Stop by tomorrow and I'll post pictures of the Bunny Tails and Bird Nests.  What are you doing for Easter?  Happy Passover to all my Jewish friends.  Passover started today.  Healing thoughts and prayers go out to Boston today on the one year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing.
Happy Trails!
