The Crafty M.D.
There is nothing quite like April. It is a fun month where everybody ends their hibernation. We play fun pranks on each other on the first of the month and later in the month we focus on caring for the Earth which sustains us. No matter what you like to do in April, this month means that we are firmly in spring.
My favorite holiday in April though, is Easter. So, I immediately knew that I wanted to make something for that theme. And what is more characteristic of the holiday than easter eggs? Whether you hunt them or decorate them, they are a chance to have fun. I designed the Easter Comfort Cushion as a small pattern where you can have fun playing with color and textural elements.
Make sure to add it to your cart this weekend and get your Size 13 (9 mm) needles ready for April 3rd!
