I have started crafting small baskets that I will fill with chocolate eggs to donate to my friends and family for Easter. Here is the photo that I have taken of the first finished basket. I have used felt fabric in two different green colors for the basket. I have cut the decorations in different colors, to create the white fence, the flowers and the butterfly. Finally I have glued the decorations onto the basket. Are you crafting something for Easter?

How clever you are to do that, it looks lovely. I'm afraid I have no talent for crafting.

@LadyDuck wonderful craft work. Here people don't really get into baskets at Easter. Mostly they gift people with chocolate candy boxes and flowers. I used to love filling baskets when I lived in NYC. Here if you can find the makings for a basket or buying one it can get rather expensive plus you won't really find what to put in them. I simply love your basket.

@RasmaSandra Thank you, I am glad that you like it. I will put inside small chocolate eggs, I have already bought a big bag, they were on sale.

I would love to steal your idea and make something similar for my youngest grandchildren. Your baskets are so cute and just perfect for Easter

They are not very difficult to make. Now I have to keep empty egg shells to make an "Easter Tree".

I have no real interest in the craft aspect and just want to eat the chocolate.

Okay Barry, I keep the basket and I send you the chocolate. Any preference? Dark, milk, white with hazelnuts?

@LadyDuck Either milk or white and ideally weighed in tons and not grams.

That is a neat craft project. I craft some but I really have to be in the mood to do a project or it won't get finished. Hope your family and friends enjoy their Easter baskets. Have a blessed day

I envy you, my friend. I wish I have time to do my art, too. I am still working full time. Few more years I will retire. I just hope I will still be healthy to do my hobbies - - drawing/painting, photography, and silkscreen-t-shirt printing.
