I HAD A BIG HELPER TODAY--

I had planned to work on getting the backing cut to go with the quilt under it--
but it seems that Miss Gracie had other ideas!!!!
So, like a good Mom--
I went on to other projects!!!!
and I did get these 3 projects basted for hand quilting--
and I did get this Easter candle mat finished today--
Here a chick, there a chick!!!!
this was a fun project to stitch!



Yesterday I did get the first little 'Pocket' block done by Homespun-
I am using an older line--Sweetwaters for these--
the 2nd block  came out today--but????

 



Got this book and it is so interesting and the blocks are neat!!

 


And here I have all my 'eggs' in one basket--
or rather in one very old dish--
my Mom always put the colored Easter eggs in this Carnival glass bowl and set them on the table at dinner time--I have usually gotten it out every Easter and done the same--but this year I decided to do these eggs, that way I can it out longer than a couple hours!!!

 

Wednesday night before going to bed I looked out the window and seen the full moon with several pretty rings around it and so did take some photos--
Doesn't  that look like a heart shape on the moon????
Well, it has been  a busy two days--
and now the week end is here and a Holiday weekend at that--
so---
BE careful out there--
Hugs, Di and that Miss Gracie

  2. So many wonderful projects. Gracie was right to give some rest. Even though you manage to do a lot. The book seems very interesting.
    Happy Easter.
