Happy Easter!!

Wishing all my  blogging friends and family a Happy Easter!

Lets see, a little bit of catch up needs to be done.

I have started Mercy Mercy by La D Da, I'm in love with it.  I also started a free Cross Eyed Cricket called Slicker Bunny, it's a pattern from 1998 I think her web site said and she brought it back because it was so popular.  I can't seem to get it to come up on this computer but it's adorable, anyways...i got a lot done and then ripped it out when I realized I choose and then cut the wrong size, so now instead over 2 I will do over 1.

This is way off task, but does anyone have a secret way of hard boiling eggs.  I've tried all the ways the computer suggests, cookbooks and of course food network and yet my shells always stick and make a mess, but I do make a mean deviled egg.  I have these nifty carry cases that i bought from Bed Bath and Beyond.

I finished a RAK pattern that Catherine from Bramblewood Stitches sent me, Joy to Ewe, now just need to make it into an ornie.

I also made sweet Challah bread the other day, well it's gone, yummy!

Also made a pineapple pie for today, it's also from Catherine too, so I will let you know how that goes down.  We are on way to the in-laws.

Have a safe and blessed Easter...


  1. Everything looks so yummy! I have always had the best luck with boiling eggs if I peel them right after boiling them. I usually cool them down in cold water to make them easier to handle. If I leave them in the water or wait to peel them later, I always have trouble peeling them. I also think they are harder to peel if the eggs are a little older.

  2. Aww such sweet post...such yummy post :)
    Yup I also cool down the egg in cold water and then peel it..
    Your stitching is looking so pretty...ewe is so cute..
    Big hugs x

  3. Your start on Mercy, Mercy looks really good!!! I do like the fabric that you chose. That is the sweetest little "Ewe" design. It's going to make a darling ornament. Your bread and piec looks scrumptious! Hope you have a wonderful day.

  4. Your bakings looks so delicious! We are having very white easter and it is still snowing. I can´t believe it.
    Hugs, Sabine

  5. Aawww....your Ewe is so cute!! That bread looks delicious ~ you'll have to let me know how that pie came out ~ I actually got that recipe from someone another stitchy blogger, but can not remember who! As for the eggs, I always cool them in ice water ~ sometimes it's easy and sometimes not ~ I have heard that the age of the egg will affect the easiness of the peel. Now I am hungry for deviled eggs....

  6. Mmmm! Your baking looks yummy!! :)
    And the Ewe is so sweet...
    I am afraid I cannot help with the eggs, mine also often come out a mess! :(

  7. Can I come over? PLEASE!! I want to try some of that Challah bread soooo badly!! Lovely little sheep finish Dawn!
