Ludie and Johan put away their toque and scarf and are officially welcoming spring. I winged it on the patterns after having a look here and here. (Thanks much ladies for your inspiration!) The boys actually sit on the piano but looked much better here against the blue wall for the photo. They are very agreeable when it comes to posing -- and for fittings. I remember hating fittings when I was a kid; all that standing still and pokey pins. Now I know how very lucky I was to have a mom that sewed clothes for us and taught me to sew. Mom taught me about good egg hunts too; I still remember how there was always one jelly bean hidden under the cradle of the receiver on our turquoise rotary phone.
Our own little (well, not so little any more) egg hunter was busy this morning using the same chicky basket she has used since her first Easter nine years ago. Not much has changed about our morning egg hunts... just the size of the rubber boots.
