I hope you have all had a good day and found time to enjoy family and celebrate the miracle of Easter. My husband and I attended church with our youngest daughter today, and it was nice to be together in church again. Over the last few years, our family has ended up in four different churches, with my husband and I preferring a small country church, while our children enjoy other churches of varying sizes. As long as the are all somewhere worshipping, I am happy, but it is nice to be in church with family.
My own personal Easter Bunny or should I say Easter Hubby surprised me with some very nice gifts this weekend. A new mixer and a light box. Now I think there is an ulterior motive behind the mixer as I had to try it out right away by mixing up a chocolate pound cake. It is wonderful!
I had asked for a light box for my birthday which is in May. That got stepped up though, as I am tracing the Blossom Time patterns for my mom from the Nimble Needle cd, and the light box would make it so much easier.....so, he said go ahead and get it now. Woohoo, I love my light box even more than the mixer.
This has been a good few days for making progress on some UFO's. I finished the cowboy basketweave quilt, have my Christmas Beauty to the point of hemming the binding, and am quilting my tulip wall hanging. I didn't quite get around to cleaning up the sewing area, but I will as soon as I finish the wall hanging. I also put my alphabet I-Spy quilt blocks up on my design wall and that is making me want to work on it - but got to finish these other projects first.
