here is a really fun craft I did with a chocolate bunny crate from Easter.
I also got a cute bunny for Easter, that Camille loves to play with.
I found a fun little fish tank where fishes grow when water is added.
Here is the new dog I got! It has really good articulation. It is also a very BAD dog!
(the new dog can hold a magnet in it's mouth and the clip-board I found has a magnet in the back)

This quilt has been in the making for many years.
I purchased the kit from Martha Pullen
when the directions were being published (around 2005) in her magazine.
I started sewing it probably in 2008-2009,
I quilted it in 2011, bound in 2012 and I am finally enjoying it now!
The first article of the series can be found here, just select Heirloom baby quilt, it is a PDF.
All the directions are in a book, if you are interested,
it is a great project to learn heirloom sewing.
A lot of lace shaping, and fancy stitching made this quilt a true work of art.
I have most of the techniques down now,
but all my reasons for learning them have grown
and show absolutely no interest in it!
Oh well, I still have still beautiful quilt which hangs in my sewing room,
and I smile every time I see it!

Last week I made a cute little needle book for my MIL
for mother's day.
In France, it is next week end,
so not sharing anything yet!
I started with some plain linen that I stamped with rubber stamps,
I think they are from Tim Holtz collection,
everything goes with an Eiffel Tower!
I added some ribbons, and appliqued a little needle patch.
It was lightly inspired by Nana company needle book.
I kept the back simple, with a sweet clothespins fabric
and one of my stamped tags, a smiley sewing machine!
On the inside, I used another cool print, a collage of vintage notions,
perfect for a little needle book.
I just loved how it turned out!

Are you looking for the perfect recipe for a little tea party for Mother's day (my favorite way to celebrate!)?
Or just a great way to relax and enjoy a cup of tea?
Well these cute petite cakes are exactly what you are looking for:
They are delicious, easy to make and look good.
At this time of the year, we are all looking for spring/summer,
and the citrus flavor really brings it all out.
she uses in the loaf shape and in cupcakes,
we tried both and it is a winner no matter the shape!
Go ahead, throw a little party to your Mom, your friends or yourself
and enjoy some lemon cakes.
