Hello! How are you doin’ this week? I’m a bit sick, fillin’ stuffy and pressure filled and it’s icky. It’s got me movin’ a bit slower, I slept in today and so now I’m trying to get caught up on work. Being sick is awful.
so, this week’s pattern is Springy or Easter themed, I think it would look adorable on your table among Easter decorations or baskets. It’s supposed to be a daffodil and you use it to hold candy. Not a lot of candy, just like a handful… like jelly beans would look so cute in this or chocolate eggs! It’s not supposed to be a big basket of candy, just a fun little decoration. I like candy, so this was a fun design for me. 😀 Also daffodils are my mother’s favorite. I know that this design isn’t necessarily a “true” daffodil design, but I’m also a fan of dramatic points on flower petals. What can I say? Oh! I hope you like this design!
