Spring Is In The Air

My family and I exchange baskets every year even though we are all grown up!  Even Mom and Dad get one!  :)  This year I'm doing mostly homemade treats.  I'm a little late getting started and sadly my sewing machine picked the WORST time ever to break down!  So I'm doing it old school...everything will be hand sewn (and of course will take twice as long...lol)!  Here's the first thing I've made so far.  It's a little Springtime Chick.  She's made from vintage sheet fabric and wool felt with a jaunty bow to make her extra sweet!  This little lady will be going in my Mom's basket.  :)  



I have many more ideas that I will share with you all later...after I have photos!  

I wanted to show you all this adorable little ring that I won in a giveaway over at Violetbella's blog.  This beauty arrived this week and I just can't get enough!  The artist, Mary from Perpetual Sunshine, made it to fit using hemp and coral beads.  I think it's such an enchanting piece of loveliness and the pop of color makes it a blast to wear!  Thanks Mary!!!  



Happy Saturday, friends!  :)
