Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to you all.  I hope you have had as enjoyable a weekend as I have.

Between two family gatherings, an egg hunt, wonderful church service and and sittng under the shade tree there has not been much sewing going on here.

I did get ready for a workshop tomorrow with Jane Garrison, of YLI.  This workshop is called Sewing Zen and its all about how to use different threads and needles in machine work.  Hopefully after the workshop, I will no longer be afraid to adjust my tension!

 Construction continues on the house.  Here is the porch after Day 2.
And this is after Day 3.

These were both short days, as there were rain delays in the morning, and special Easter activities in the late afternoon. 

But its coming along very nicely!

Thanks for stopping by,

I really LIKE it. Have fun in the class tomorrow. I am going to take that one some day. I didn't even read the last newsletter to see that it was being held.

That is a lovely deck. We had a family reunion in a place in Minnesota where all the cottages had big sunny decks like that and It was so nice to sit out and quilt and enjoy the view.

Sounds like a wonderful Easter! And your porch is coming along great -- I love the pretty white railings!
