Congrats Kathy! Please e-mail me your address and your prize will be in the mail. Thanks for playing everyone!!
After nearly a week of contest fun, I'm back to update you with some life and crochet stuff.
Pi had an easter bonnet parade at school and we had to make a homemade bonnet. I searched up, down, left, and right and could not find a plain straw hat. Not in Target, the mexican stores, or the chinese stores. I thought I'd find them in little chinatown, as lots of the chinese ladies wear the straw hats during the summer. But nope!
So, we improvised....with a styrofoam disc from the card store!
I cut a hole in the disc large enough to fit over Pi's head and wrapped it in green ribbon. We then took apart a .99c hand held wind-blower-thing (what the hell are those called? I can't remember!) that had plastic eggs and a plastic bunny. We glued the bunny, eggs, and oodles of flowers...Viola!
It was a hawaiin themed easter wreath. We thought it was pretty silly looking and not at all what the school wanted, but low and behold, the kid won first place in the easter bonnet contest! She's holding her prize in the picture. In her own words... "It was SOOO embarassing."
On the crocheting front, I've been dabbling a bit, but not too much. Its been too busy with my parents wedding and you know, life, to do much.
But since Easter is just around the corner, I made little bunny pins for the kids in her class. Not as fancy as the amis for Valentine's Day but they're cute and remind me of when I was a kid and someone's parent sent in something similar one year.
I found the pattern HERE
Since I mentioned my parents wedding, here is a picture of the happy couple.
I may or may not have made a toast. That toast may or may not have given credit to myself for their first union in 1980...since you know, I was the illegit child that brought them together in marriage. Heehee!
Hope everyone has a Happy Easter! Jesus is back!
