Ta Da

I am almost finished with my hand cut little rug. I have decided that the bear gets a bit lost in the back ground so I plan on out lining him in the red that is on the left leg.

A bit of thrifting Saturday morning. I found these two to help round out my Easter decorations.
A very busy weekend we went to Maine to celebrate my brother-in-law's birthday.
 steak and lobster was had by all. It felt like we were celebrating two birthdays as they both have the same DNA now. On our way home this afternoon we both thought that ice cream would be a fabulous lunch. While eating our ice cream we walked through the candy store and each bought a bag of our old time favorite Easter candy. Right now I am so jacked up on sugar I have raked the lawn,3 loads of laundry,grocery shopping, and a bit of hooking. I am not looking forward to the crash.:(
Have a great week!
I was gratified to be able to answer promptly.I said I don't know.

The little bear looks great! I finally bought the good I'm set to begin the wide cut. I'll have to use the Puritan won't fit on my hoop once I start hooking! The birthday lunch sounds fab! I love lobster. Maybe you could ration out the Easter candy and slowly wean off! LOL

Your rug came out G-R-E-A-T! I did a punch needle version of that bear a couple years ago.
Glad you and hubs had a good weekend.
Hugs :)

Your little teddy looks great. The red outline will really make him pop.
So, what kind of candy did you get? I'm a jelly bean girl myself. (Except the green ones, I throw those out)

Sounds like a fun weekend! Love the little bunny. I picked up a couple of Easter bunnies last week that I'll have to blog about too. Have a good week!

Congratulations on finishing your little bear rug. It's so gratifying finishing a project. Well it's almost finished...

It's hard to believe that Easter is next Sunday. Love the new Easter decorations. I've got my little bunnies out too.

Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. Hugs, JB
