Easter Blessings

I hope everyone enjoyed a beautiful Easter yesterday! We had warmer temps and sunshine... made for a great day to relax and enjoy a great meal...

As promised... a couple of updates on some projects in progress... first up is Part 2 of the Blackbird Design's Garden Club Series. This one is named Apple Orchard.

The next quilt is named Josephine and is from an older Easy Quilts magazine. I'll give all the details when this top is completed... right now, here is a peek at the fabrics all cut and ready for piecing. Yes... I did make a sample block before cutting up all that fabric! :-)

So far, the instructions for this have been very clear and easy to follow... since this pic was taken, some flying geese units have been made. :-)

That's about it for here... we're enjoying all of the colors of Spring... so many flowering trees are blooming... and of course, there's daffodils, crocus and hyacynths! It used to be that Fall was my favorite season... as I'm getting older, I'm learning to appreciate each Spring more and more!

Until next time... enjoy each day for the gift that it is!



  1. I'd be excited to see some progress report posts on Josephine as you go along. The fabrics are just lovely!

  2. Always love your stitcheries, came out beautifully and your quilt looks like a beautiful new piece. We had nice weather, which was nice for a change.


  3. I love that Apple Orchard cross stitch and your Josephine quilt is going to look amazing. I love, love those quiet colors.
    Lucky you to already have spring flowers. It's raining today and hopefully it will melt our snow.
    Easter Blessings to you, Hugs,

  4. Ooh--can't wait to see Josephine--I'm all about the blues!!

  5. i like the looks of the new quilt. You were smart to make a test block. Can't wait to see more.
