EASTER CROCHET   

  happy easter!!   SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM FOR THE PATTERN  

** how big is it?  it fits in my hand, almost as big as
a can of soda... i tried a small skinny carrot, but this
one looks happier ;-)

** and what is that chicky thing in the background?  last year
i found this rolling suitcase, meant for kids, but just had to have it...
here's a photo of it, it opens up and has straps to tie down garments,
and there is a telescoping handle and wheels on the bottom... how
cool is that?  it's kinda see-thru too

** AND i made a crochet ducky as well, if i wrote up
the pattern for you, you would be too confused, so all
you get is this lousy photo  ;-)
