Calling all Etsyhookers!

Our newest challenge is up and running! The theme, chosen by the winner of our last challenge, is in honour of Earth Day, April 22nd. To enter, you must be a member of Etsyhookers team, requirements can be found here.
This looks to be a fun challenge, whether you choose to create an item of something in nature (like a tree or a flower) or something symbolic of being eco-friendly (sneakers to show walking instead of driving), or even something using materials that otherwise would go to the landfill!
Full details are in this thread (sorry, only team members will be able to view it).

Entries will, as usual, be posted here, with voting to commence--when else?--April 22nd, Earth Day! So, stay tuned to see what some of our team members can come up with!

It's Spring!?!

With spring comes 'new'.  New growth, baby animals, both welcome signs after a dreary, long winter.
Although in parts of North America, the milder temps that usually accompany spring are missing, it nevertheless is spring, and worth celebrating.
From members of Etsyhookers team, I've put together a collection of baby animals, both patterns and finished 'babies', in this treasury.

A selection of baby animals from Etsyhookers Team members: both patterns to create your own and finished babies ready to cuddle.
