I am taking a break from the Orange Slices Quilt to post this Bunny Holiday Wall hanging and with Easter just around the corner, I figured this is a great time to show this cutie off.  This applique is an Amy Bradley design and I just love her patterns.  I don't always use applique patterns published by others, but this one is just too adorable to resist! 

These fun appliqued bunnies remind me of one particular Easter Sunday Morning...here, let me paint the picture...

Growing up in a large Catholic family of 8 kids, Easter was always a big event in our home.  My mother did not think Easter was  complete with out the matching outfits she always had her 6 daughters wear (don't forget the one for Mother too).  These matching outfits were only ONE of the things that Mother thought made Easter special in our home, there's lots more where that came from. Mother felt compelled to subject all 6 of her girls to having curlers and bobby pins stuck in our hair with that ever adorable hair net atop it all and then making us sleep on it overnight.  This is probably one of the worst nights sleep you will ever endure as a child.  Curly and wavy hair was important to a mother with 6 girls, so such was the life as a female in our home.   However, there was one special Easter Sunday morning that we all will never forget...and that was the year the one of my Mothers 6 girls decided her hair just "wasn't right".  You see, my sister Michelle, had one horrible cowlick in the front of her hairline, and it drove her absolutely NUTS!  Michelle decided on Easter Sunday morning, right before we all loaded into the big station wagon to head to church, that she would cut the cowlick out of her hair.  When Mother found her with the scissors still in her hand, and NO bangs or hair of any kind on the front of her head, she nearly came unglued.  Instead, Mother grabbed Michelle's Easter hat and plopped it on her head, and said..."Don't take your hat off in church".  I am pretty sure that the whippin' stick came out from under the front drivers seat for a little visit when we returned home from Mass.  My sister Michelle was not aloud to use scissors WITHOUT proper supervision for quite some time after that!  Aren't family memories fun? 

PS...sorry Mic, it could be worse, I could have pulled out the pictures!

Paybacks come back ten-fold. My son Ryan did the same thing with his hair.....and we took him to the barber and had his head shaved as short as possible so "nothing would be sticking up."
