SUNDAY--AND EASTER ALL IN THE SAME DAY

 So first let me say--



I had a busy week--2 days of outings even--

Think I told you about the first one --on Tuesday--

the second one was on Thursday--with friend Carolyn again-our 2 main objectives that day was to go to a quilt shop and try to find fabrics for those pretty-pain in the neck-blessing blocks and to have lunch at Cracker Barrel--

We went north of here to an area called Viera--(suntree) and we stopped at a little thrift shop called--Angels in the attic--I really did not find much there--just an older basket that had to come home with me--then we went to a Quilt shop up the street--when I got out of the car--I noticed a long line outside on the sidewalk--wellll--they were having a 20% off sale and they were only letting '20' customers in the shop at a time--plus the employees--that was 25 at least in the store and this store is very very crowded with merchandize--no social distancing at all can happen there with that many in the shop!! and there was at least another 15 or more in line--so I just turned around and went back to the car!!!!!!!!  And we went on to Cracker Barrel and sat outside and had a lovely lunch--then we came back a different way and stopped at another quilt shop about 3-4 miles straight up the road from me--it is larger and there is hardly more than a couple customers at a time in this store and a large selection of cloth--it took awhile but we finally came up with a couple fabrics for the blessing blocks--I think--I am still thinking on that one!!!  then on to the grocery store!!

so it has taken me all week to get the next step done on the new hand piecing --stitch along--

These blocks kept playing tricks on me and keep twisting themselves so that I kept stitching them wrong--but I finally showed them who was 'boss'!!!!

And I got last months green yo-yo's finished-
And here is where I am on the Farmhouse counted cross stitching series--

The one I am working on now is the red barn--still have a tree to stitch on each side of the barn!!

I will be back tomorrow with Aprils goals--still working on figuring them out!!!

Am going to my son's and his girl friends this after noon--we are having a turkey dinner--they are doing the turkey--first time for either of them--I haven't baked a turkey in many years--so am not alot of help-as everything seems to have changed--even how long it takes to bake--now in half the time it used to take-are they growing a new kind of turkey these days--faster oven time ones??????

BE SURE TO COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS TODAY-
AND REMEMBER --YOU ARE A BLESSING TO ME--EVEN IF YOU HAVE NEVER LEFT ME A COMMENT--
BLESS ALL OF YOU--DI

  2. Happy Easter to you too, Di...hope your dinner with son and his friend turned out good. I did a spiral sliced ham...first time for me. We went to stepdaughter's and it was just her and my grandson and my hubby and me. Small but really a lovely day. After we ate, we took a walk on the boardwalk up by the beach. So nice!!!! Good luck finding the right fabric for your projects.

  3. It's too bad you couldn't shop in the one store, but I wouldn't have gone in either. How nice that Cracker Barrel has outdoor seating. I don't think ours does, but I'll have to check it out. What are you going to do with all your yoyos? I made a bunch with 30's fabric, and they are going to be a wall hanging. Some day. Hopefully.
