love searching the internet for new clip arts to turn into paper piecings. So if you should happen upon a clipart that would make a paper piecing please send it my way.
Each of my 3 sisters, received one of these paper piecings in their valentine card from me.
I would have to say my favorite easter candy is Elmer's pecan eggs, the the second would have to be gold brick egg.
some more easter facts:
* Tradition of burning an Easter-eve fire? This tradition of Easter eve fire is mostly celebrated in Texas. It originated from a German tradition. For this custom children are told that the Easter Bunny is burning wild flowers to make his dyes.
* Each day, five million marshmallow chicks and bunnies are produced in preparation for Easter.
* 16 billion jelly beans are made for Easter (that's enough to completely fill an 89 feet high and 60 feet wide plastic Easter egg -about the height of a nine-story office building!)
* the ever popular Easter eggs are an ancient symbol of new life, entirely appropriate for a springtime holiday like Easter. Easter is all about renewal and new life, so the egg is not that out of place after all.
* Like the egg, the rabbit is a symbol of new life and rebirth, and it is probably this association that gave rise to the famous Easter Bunny. Rabbits have long been associated with fertility and birth. The actual Easter Bunny legend is rooted in German tradition. The legend holds that a poor woman living in Germany decorated colorful eggs for her children to find. As soon as the hidden eggs were found by the children, a large bunny was seen hopping away. This ancient legend is thought to be the root of the Easter Bunny we know and love today.
