We will need to put "sunglasses" on our Easter eggs for all the egg hunts on Saturday!!!!
Well--the good part is we won't need to hard boil them this year--just leave them out in the hot sun for a couple hours--think of the electricity we will save!!!!!
Little sister got me into "trouble" again today--we had to go over town and do some things and of course we HAD to go to the quilt shop--this is the owner Sue at O'Susannah's Quilt shop--she is constantly on the move!!!
First we looked at quilt stencils and we each picked out two (Ah--I think Little sister forgot that she doesn't quilt!!)--then we were looking around at the fabric ---
And little sister spots this fabric---
Is this not the "greatest" print and colors---I love birds and bird prints!!! SO you know what this meant don't you????? Little sister also found a bird print just like this one only in a different color combo--see her's on her site!!
And here is what came home with me--Sue was putting away fabric when I spotted the darkest one on the bottom of the pile and I grabbed it quick!!! We have two different patterns in mind to use these on---so this story will be continued at a later date!!
Found two pretty sights of Spring on the way to the Health food store--
I love flowers!!!
I was finally able to go down and see and visit with my Mary this morning--
She would not let me take her picture so I took one of her flowers and some of the cards she has gotten---we still talk about her getting well--but---?????
It was soooo good to get my hug today--in fact I got me two of them--one when I got there and one when I left!!
NOW I HAVE A FAVOR TO ASK--
I have entered "Mary's Sunny Bunny" quilt in an Easter quilt contest--and I need everyone to go and vote on it for her----I would just love to go down on Monday and tell her that the quilt she and daughter Mary helped me with--- won!!!!
I am new to this--but here is what I know--
The is quiltinggallery.com/ the company that does the contests-- and this weeks is being hosted by fatquartershop.com--and one of these sites starting tomorrow (Friday) through Sunday will show the quilts to be voted on--and I guess the quilt that gets the most votes win---SO --check these out will you--and please keep praying for my Mary--she really is ---.
Happy Stitching---and safe traveling for any who are going away for the week end!
