It's a short one today. My grandmother died today & I'm just not entirely with it....

When I was a little girl, we had old Easter baskets. The okdest had the largest and so on down the line. They did not look anything like the current (cheesy looking - at least to me) baskets.
If you want to make a memorable Easter basket, start with this pattern.

Need a quick flower for your Easter bonnet or to use as a boutieniere - here's a cool pattern:

I love the way pansies look. This is a pattern for a crochet pansy. (it looks like a pansy to me)

I'm not really a "tunic" kind of person - most look uncomfortable. However, this one is gorgeous. Created by Vashi Braha for Caron, it uses the Shadow yarn to great effect:

Until next week (I might be here, don't know how I'll be doing since she gets buried on Saint Patrick"s Day) _enjoy_
