Easter lovebirds and chicken

Look at what the Easter bunny brought from my sister:

In turn, he went back to my sister with this:

I hope you are all having a great Easter weekend. I'm enjoying mine, although the weather could be better. I went downtown on Friday night, and it was gloomy. It was raining, windy and cold. Many upset tourists, and even more upset bar tenders. Sigh. Yesterday was as rainy. We had a little sunshine today, but clouds are coming again...

I worked all afternoon yesterday on the skirt by Dona Karan, sewing the lining and trying to attach the skirt to it. Reached a dead-end this morning. I just could not figure what to do next. So I try to unmount what I did yesterday, ruining the lining in the process... sigh... I put the skirt away for the moment. I'll make a new lining and bring it with me when I visit Emilie in June, because the lining must be adjusted to the person before attaching the skirt. And then, I'll re-check all the markings and give it another try. That'll work or that'll go into the bin! In short, so far it is a disaster :-)

But I'm proud to report that the dresses for Amandine do fit. Here is one proof:

Where did the time fly? Two weeks without posting! Well, I've been busy cutting this:
No, it is not a pant for a giant, but the skirt V1202 by Donna Karan. I've started sewing it. So far, so good, but keep fingers crossed that it turns out right. I'm not that confident...
Then, I've been busy with this. Very difficult to get a decent picture of that color :-). It is for my niece's baby, due by mid-July. I wanted something with a vintage look in it. She wants red. I'd always wanted to knit lambwool, so there it is:

And I've been busy with the garden too, and I'm rewarded with these very first roses:

You see my hand, because the rose bush is far taller than me :-)
The weather is already very sunny and hot. And I can't resist the temptation to go and walk in the hill when I reach home at night. Tonight, I saw many Easter bunnies getting ready :-)

This week will be a quick one too, with a trip to Barcelona on Friday night. Can't wait!
In the meantime, have a wonderful week!
