Here Comes Peter Cottontail…

It is going to be 29 degrees here tonight (goodbye hostas, azaleas and dogwoods) but I feel like a Spring project will help warm things up…so that’s what I have for you today.  I totally “cased” this project from Mary Fish’s blog, but changed it up a bit because I knew you would love it.  Thank you Mary!

Here’s the little Peter Cottontail project…


So darn cute, right?  A nice treat for any Easter basket, or brunch or luncheon as part of your table setting.  You could always add a tag with a name.  I actually gave one of these at book club this week and added a “thank you” tag for the hostess.

Interested in the Stuff ‘N Digits?  I’ll give those to you today and later this week if I can get all my “kitting” done for three classes this week, I plan to make a video for you of this cute lil’ cottontail so be sure to stop back by this week.  Here’s the Stuff  ‘N Digits
