Meet Miss Maggie Rabbit-Saylor! Over the warm, sunny Easter weekend, she acquired a pair of bloomers to match her flowered peasant dress. Her face took on a rosy glow and yesterday she donned the pink, wool, silk capelet I knit for her. I did not order a Miss Maggie Rabbit kit before Alicia sold out of kits, but I was glad I could easily buy and download the pattern. I shopped at Craft WareHouse for the materials I needed and really enjoyed the whole process of making Miss Maggie. [Thank you, Alicia] In the first three photos besides Miss Maggie, you can see the beautiful blanket Shari gifted to me which I have draped over a chair by our fireplace when it is not wrapped around someone to warm them....such an incredible present from one of my talented blogging friends. I will be forever grateful and in awe of her generosity. [Thank you again, Shari]
The weather Easter weekend was so miraculous for the Portland, Oregon, area...a splendid visual reminder of Christ's Good News as we welcomed the warmth and lively blossoms of Spring and turned away from the deadly frost of Winter. My oldest granddaughters picked and brought in from our yard a bouquet of daffodils for me which infused my room with an heavenly scent~~~~~ My youngest granddaughter happily played near the spot of sunshine in my room in which Shelby Dog had found to bask herself; and the Camellias, Wild Cherry trees, and Forsythia joined in the celebration as well :)
Such joy, I had to share with you!
