I hope that everyone had a Merry Pi Day on 3/14! We celebrated the mathematical constant at our house with a slice of cherry. After telling my co workers about the dessert planned for my family, my branch manager pulled out a huge apple pie that she had stored in our break room freezer. Instead of pulling a 10 hour shift, I went home for a few hours and did some baking! LOL So... my team at work got to celebrate with a slice of heavenly apple pie! (For her generosity, I brought my manager a piece of cherry back, since that is her favorite! ;) ) We were talking about next year's plans, since the date will be 3/14/15 and that will account for the first 5 digits of Pi. I am thinking that we should all bring a different pie and spend the day sampling! LOL
I finished my darling little bunny from the Sweet Meadow Farm's pattern. She is every bit as cute as I imagined. Thank the heavens that she is prim, since my skill level is perfect for that style! ;) ** Oops... the remnants of the Pi celebration are in the background! :)
She is complete with genuine feed sack bloomers. It would be fun to do a bunny with all feed sack clothes. For this little girl, the dress fabric was dipped in coffee, and it gave the wee outfit a wonderful vintage look. One lesson that I learned was not to fold the fabric over a hanger to dry after dipping. The coffee settles on the cloth that is resting on the hanger and leaves a dark line. But if you dip the affected pieces again, squeeze them a few times while in the coffee and finish by hanging them with clothes pins; the lines will go away... Lucky for me!
Her colors go well with my living room walls. I would like to make her a dark little boy playmate and some wool Easter toys. It would give her arms something to do. Now, I am off to look for another project that needs completion!
I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend! :)
