Easter Week


How cheesy can one 2 1/2yo get? When Nana pulled out the camera, this is what I got. Funny child. She is wearing one of her baby bibs - she saw that in the drawer and decided she needed to wear it. Oh they are such fun.

I have actually been doing some sewing/quilting type of things, although they are not particularly conducive to photographs. I have sewn the binding onto my large bed quilt, 'White Chocolate' (you've seen it several times before). Now to do the hand sewing part of that project. I know that many folks complain about hating that part, but I find it rather calming to sit in front of the TV and sew binding. I have also been following some hints from Bonnie Hunter for saving scraps (2" strips and 3 1/2" squares). Again, no photos.

I have however, finished the squares to make the Garden Quilt. Caro and I saw this marvelous little wall hanging in a shop window in Doesberg, NL. So on the Sunday morning that I was flying home we designed a quilt for ourselves and cut the background fabrics.







Now to put it all together and figure out a border. Take a look at Caro's . She did a string pieced border which I think looks great and she says was incredibly simple. Perhaps I shall use that idea too. This will be a gift, eventually, for a dear friend retiring this summer. [can I keep it a secret that long?]
