Happy Easter!

Here is the obligatory Easter egg basket I made this year. I should have made more than one but I didn't. This is it. One egg fits perfectly but 2 will probably end up being crammed in there.


ingredients:
white cardstock: neenah
peach cardstock: bazzill
basket cut file: For Peep's Sake Baskets cut project
eggs and chicken in nest image: For Peep's Sake graphic set (colors altered using photoshop)

See ya later, Google reader

I'm sure everyone has heard the devastating news about Google reader. I actually am devastated, sort of. I use it daily to surf blogs using the next button. I don't like reading blogs IN reader though so a lot of the alternatives aren't working for me. I finally decided to try out bloglovin and it's as close as I can find so far (they have a newer/older button instead of next). Until the last possible minute I'm going to stick with Google reader-all the while I'll be hoping they change their mind about discontinuing it-but if anyone is interested in following my blog in bloglovin here's a link-just click on the little button below (or the big one in my sidebar):

Follow on Bloglovin

thank you :)

Paper pieced utensils-a test block

Kristy from the Quiet Play blog let me test this cute paper pieced block for her. She has the sweetest retro (and other) paper piecing patterns in her Craftsy store. I had a lot of fun making this, and actually made two, but this one turned out the best. Paper piecing is fun and there are so many cute designs available. I love how it turned out, and I may have to get a few of the companion blocks and make something for my kitchen wall. These fabrics are all from my stash (which is one thing I love about paper piecing-I can use up scraps on them)
