{Our Easter parade…}

Where do I begin?  So much I want to share with you but so little time!  The girls enjoyed a great spring break last week and if you were following me on Twitter you know we headed out to the zoo…in the snow.  I love working at the largest university in the country – gives me a chance to network with loads of people and luckily, one of our alumni board members is a keeper at the Columbus Zoo SO, she was wonderful enough to give my girls a behind the scenes tour.  We got to see exactly what she does to care for the animals and a chance to see a grizzly bear, 2 alaskan brown bears and a cougar very close!  So cool!  No photos to share of that as we were not allowed to take any in the back areas but…check this out!

This is the cafe at the zoo.  See anybody else there?  That’s right…when it’s 20′ windchill and snowing – NOBODY goes to the zoo.  We saw two other people there all day.

Here’s the girls in the “jungle” with a researcher!  Ha!  100_27541And some cool looking birds we saw in one of the aviarys…where it was WARM.

100_2804And so on to Easter…we went to my parents house which was fun.  The girls got these really cool little jackets for their American Girls from the sewing room of the easter bunny, aka The Doll Closet on etsy.  Really cute!100_2798

And they had a blast!  I have to say, they looked BE-AU-TI-FUL in their easter dresses.  They turned out really well, if I do say so myself!  I got the pattern for these from PinkFig.  I used the Lily pattern and had to adjust some because my girls are a size 8 and the pattern only went up to a size 7.  I added some extras on the ruffle, etc.  They LOVED them!  If you are looking for an easy EASY to use pattern line – PinkFig is it!

100_2814100_2812OK, so I never did get them to stand very still for a photo but here’s a few portfolio shots…you get the idea!

And then…I’ve had quite a few orders for dresses lately.  I have some already listed on my etsy page. But here’s a peek at a few..

100_2809Does the baby look happy here?  Poor thing!  Her sisters love her TOO much!  Well, lots of photos, not too much text.  Since Easter (yesterday) one of the peas has been diagnosed with whooping cough.  She doesn’t look sick does she?  Exactly why we had no idea…since all she had was a nagging cough.  Our AWESOME doctor caught it and well, things are now quite hectic in our house so I’ll be back next week with an entry about handmade stuff!  (I noticed at my Moms, my sisters – dang!  I make a LOT of stuff cuz it’s all over their house from paintings to placemats! More on that next week!)

I’ll leave you with one last little cutie – my baby’s first Easter.  Next week she celebrates her first birthday.  A very special little day.  She was born on April 25th – the same day as my oldest sister.  My oldest sister  died when she was 15 from complications from mono.  My baby being born on her birthday was quite special.

God bless – hope everyone had a wonderful Easter holiday!  Ciao, xo Trish

  1. Those dresses are darling! If I were a little girl I would definitely want one (okay, maybe I still want one even though I’m a big girl now)!

  2. Their easter dresses are just darling! I love the pattern and the style! So cute!

    I love the picture of the food court at the zoo. I’ve NEVER seen it look like that… EVER!

    Oh and the dress with that pattern I really like with the teal, red & yellow and the red moon dots… SO cute! That has to be my favorite pattern for the spring! I love it!

    Great work Trish!

  3. The dresses (and girls) look so cute! Now I kind of want to sew something.
    Hmm. Maybe when the craft room is clean….

    • Ah Barb…that craft room…ahh…will never be clean. Give it up. It’s a good kind of mess…one that I would like to hang out in all day and do “stampin up” projects in. hint! hint!

  4. I love your dresses! They turned out really cute and the fabric choices were perfect for Easter. Your girls are just beautiful and they look like they have a lot of fun together:)

    Thanks for sharing!

    • Thanks Chelsea – your patterns are so cute and I have to say, truly, the easiest directions ever AND it took no time at all to create. You’ve simplified everything so wonderfully and with great results. Your aunt, Lila Tueller, has been really kind to me in the past with advice for my business – you two have a great thing going. Prayers for continued success! PinkFig Rocks!
