Yes, I definately have Easter on my mind. (Still haven't found the duck or bunny applique patterns I'm looking for BTW)

Since I love marshmallow peeps, and can't justify eating them now that I've been diagnosed with diabetes, i had to make my own sweet treat, a baby peep:





My first attempt at making/writing this pattern didn't turn out the way I intended, so I made a baby duck out of it, and I just love him!





And a view from the top:



Anybody interested in the pattern?? LOL

I wouldn't mind having the pattern.  My daughters love Peeps.  They would go nuts if I made one for them. Cheesy

Hi Marjorie!

Totally cute.  I can just see the bunny, the baby peep, and the duckie all jumping around together in their Easter basket.  Smiley 

Woot!!
