Happy Easter!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!

I made the girls these little dolls for their Easter baskets. It is a Bit of Whimsy pattern called the Mae Doll. I actually won this pattern in a giveaway by Katie about a year ago. These were my first softies. The pattern was great, and I am pleased with how they turned out. However, my appreciation for softie makers has gone way up. Turning and stuffing those little legs and arms took forever! We named them Mary and Maggie after Mary Magdalen, as she was the first person to see Jesus after He rose.

As you can see, they were a big hit! Makes it all worth it. Is there anything sweeter than a freshly woken up face, messy bed head, and excitement over their Easter basket? I think not. Juliana has been anticipating Easter since the beginning of Lent, and three days later she is still carrying her Easter basket everywhere and waking up early just to look at it.

Felicity really got into the hunt this year, and she calls her basket her "bacon". Where is my bacon?!? Took me awhile to figure out that one.
