Mystery Knitting Project~She's Got Arms!

I'm happy to share that my little bunny has arms! *Ü* When I was at the tire shop yesterday, I didn't mind waiting in the least because I brought along my knitting. What a great time to work on a project without being interrupted. It gave me a good jump on the arms. I finished the knitting and stuffing last night and popped them in place this morning. Now I can work on the outfit. Yay!

I also did some Spring/Easter shopping and got some items to put together my porch as of now, and the breakfast bar. I have to do some clean up before I take pictures, so I'll probably share tomorrow. I scored some fun finds at the Dollar Tree and some super pretty butterflies at Joann's. As I was putting the decorations out, the girls told me that they loved that I did "themes" as they call it. I'm so glad. Prior to my recent thrift store shopping, I didn't decorate much because everything cost so much. Now that I'm in "frugal mode" I'm training my eye to see the bargains that still look pretty good. It's been a lot of fun!

I hope you are having a super Sunday. I'm gonna go work on the bunny's outfit now. I don't want her to be "nekkid" for too long. *Ü*

Clothes or no clothes, she is so cute!! The girls haven't named her yet? Love that they love what you're doing. It will make every holiday and season more memorable.

Did you get those 50 degree temperatures? It's only in the 20s here but beautiful with lots of sunshine and no wind.

Have a great week, sweet friend!

Just darling! Can't wait to see her outfit.

Awwww, she darling! She looks SO much better with arms! LOL

I think decorating is the best when it isn't costly or stressful - you're teaching the girls some important lessons (well, LOTS of important lessons)

This is so cute, I just can't stand it! I love it! I'm anxious to see how you dress her.

She is getting super cute. I cannot wait to see how you dress her.

It's fun that you are able to decorate so nicely for a reasonable price.

She's shaping up to be soooo cute, Jeanne! Can't wait to see how you dress her! ;)

I'm with the girls --I like that you do "themes" too. ;D I get to live vicariously though you since all my holiday items (and LOTS of other things too, craft items included) are still packed away in the basement...meaning I do the bare minimum because I don't want to have to go unbury the boxes, dig out the 'stuff,' and then have to go put it all back a few weeks later. I do go to the trouble for fall (sometimes -lol), Christmas, and their Easter baskets. Other than that, I try not to think about it. I feel bad for my kids, but they don't seem to mind.
Definitely looking forward to the time when all my 'things' will have a permanent home again, that's for sure!
