More Spring and a few other things too...

Spring is in the air here...or should I say Summer...well..which is going to be...today the forecast high is in the 90's...yes...you heard me...the 90's! But, luckily it isn't supposed to last too many days. It should be back down to our normal 70's by the weekend...I hope anyway. It's too early to be that hot. We went from winter to summer in just a couple of days! Anyway...here is a picture of a rather large tree...well...it really is supposed to be a bush that we let grow into a tree...in our back yard. I went outside and saw that it was all in bloom! It noticed last week a couple blooms and now the whole thing is blooming and it smells really good...not to mention the 100's of bees that are buzzing around...they like it too! Here's another little bunny I added to my collection last year...I got her at the Pasadena Rose Bowl Flea Market...she's a little creamer...isn't she sweet!
Here's her side view...can you believe I only spent $7 on this cutie! She brings a bit of cheer into my hutch!
I want to show you a few bags I have made for some clients...their Grandma ordered them to use instead of the traditional Easter baskets...these were a lot of fun!
It was this fabric that inspired the outside...
This one was so much fun...this little one loves anything cupcake...
I used little beads for the sprinkles...
Can you see the lining fabric...little cupcakes...
Don said this one was his personal favorite...he liked the little snails and caterpillar...
This is the fabric I used for the lining...it inspired the outside...
Of course everyone got a wallet too...these were fun...I used a few different fabrics for all the pockets and they match all the bags I made for the children...I hope they like them!

No sewing today...I have some fabric shopping to do for some more orders I need to get done...so I'm off to my favorite fabric store...a small local place that has wonderful fabric for bags!

Have a great day!!

High 90's? Yeesh, we're in the high 40's. With rain. Lots and lots of rain. But, I wouldn't live any where else :)
Enjoy the weather!! Gardening time :D

Sounds like our weather here the last few days. But now the weekend is supposed to be cold and rainy again. Love your bags and wallets. You really do a great job. I say this every time, but your appliques are fantastic.
