I used those easter chickies in my placecard settings at Easter dinner which I hosted – see, like this:
I love those little chicks. Bitter with Baggage is highly amusing. I would love to see a series with these little chicks and knitting… (it may not top this though)
Easter dinner was a huge success. I’m lucky that my family and in-laws bring just about everything. We clean house / provided the space, no biggie.
My other springy / Easter craft projects included felting the daffodils:
and my wee bunny
Very much in keeping with Project Spectrum unintentionally.
School’s out this week. Yay! At the bookstore in town I bought Diary of a Worm and Diary of a Spider – I mentioned how much my 6th graders liked the book. I noticed a poster for the Spider book and commented on how cute it was. Now, here’s a moment when New Englanders are just the best ever. The lady gave me the poster, a teacher discount (15%) and tax exemption (even though I didn’t have the tax id number!) Wow. I’ll shop there again and drop a mention of my students. Something positive in light of all the negative press that has been in the paper lately.
