Hippity, Hoppity...

... Easter's on it's way!

This pretty piece was stitched in 2002, when we decided to have an exchange and stitch something for one of the other members in our group. (I was stitching something for Bonnie, and she for me.)

 
I chose this pattern which was a leaflet from Leisure Arts, which I think was adapted from an antique postcard. We had a year to work on the piece, and we exchanged our finished pics in March 2003. I just loved it! (I'm not sure if Bonnie felt the same way while stitching it though... the basket nearly drove her crazy!!) Oh, and this wasn't the first time Bonnie was a "basketcase" while stitching... we had an exchange similar to this one years before that, and wouldn't you know... the picture I picked for her to stitch for me that time also had a basket in it!! If we ever decide to do an exchange like this again, I'm sure Bonnie will throw my name back in the hat if she's the one to draw it out! :^) 


Seriously though, I treasure it Bonnie, and I proudly display it in a place I can look at it each and every day at Eastertime each year.

I loved reading about your sisters pet monkey. I have 3 squirrel monkeys of my own. They are the light of my life. Sometimes I wish I had been born in the 60's...back when people minded their own business, lived and let live. Now I am constantly expending energy trying to keep my monkeys instead of spending that time with them. I made a web site to educate the public. HAve pictures of them there. petmonkeyinfo.com In case you are interested.
