Christ is Risen, Indeed He Is Risen! I want to wish each of you a Happy Easter. If you have celebrated this joyous occasion of our Lord's Resurrection, I hope it has been a happy time for you and your family.
It has been fun for me to gather together goodies for my grandson, Oliver, Easter basket. He loves stuffed animals and this year I decided to make one for him. It was a challenging pattern since it was written poorly. But, I forged ahead and this is what I came up with:
I'm going to call him "Peter Cottontail" since my little grandson loves the story of Peter Cottontail. Here's a link to the bunny pattern. I used some leftover yarns that I had in my stash and made a little carrot which is in his pocket.
This year the Western Easter falls way earlier than the Eastern Orthodox Easter. So, we will be celebrating two Easters. My husband and I are members of the Eastern Orthodox Church and our Pascha falls on May 5. We follow the Julian calendar thus the difference in the dates for Easter. Either way, it's a beautiful time of year to contemplate and be thankful for our blessings.
