I have been playing with some leftovers from my Triangle Quilt Along fabrics (I hope to attempt to sew some rows together on Sunday night after getting home from Easter dinner at Grandma's house). I've been making these cute hexagon flowers. I just need to prep a bunch of white for some neat flowers in between with colorful centers. I'll hook these together with a white hexagon and then make some rows. Hopefully what I am thinking will work out for a cute little quilt. Emily's new Sofia the First doll thinks she needs her own quilt!
My sewing table is a banquet table and it had to be moved outside on Thursday for a play date. Emily had a few of her friends from school over to dye some eggs. The back lawn was a great choice to do that. I ended up helping out that morning in her class for her party so had prepped the dyes early - 2.5 hours early! I added a little vinegar when we got home and it was amazing the colors we got from just a couple of seconds in the dye. I must remember this next year. The kids all had a great time and then played with lots of toys through the house while the Mom's chatted. That night the kids had a soccer game. Aidan played goal one quarter and did a great job trying to score a goal as well. None of his five try's made it past the other teams goalie but he did a great job trying. It is amazing how much they have learned in the three months they have been playing.
Friday we had a family day and we all went to Animal Kingdom. I wanted to hit the safari ride - Good Friday with a great chance of rain was a wonderful day to go! Wait times were about 10 minutes! We used the fast pass to go to see Mickey and Minnie Mouse - which they loved. We also tried 'It's Tough to be a Bug' but they both bolted out pretty quick as it was too scary. A quick bite to eat and then we hit dinosaur land to play in the dig site and the playground. Some kids who were so excited to go with both Mom and Dad - who did not sleep much last night - got a little cranky so we called it a day and headed home after some ice cream around 1:30. The advantage of the annual pass - no guilt as we can go back any time =).
Head on over to SoScrappy on Saturday morning to see the other purple projects being worked on through the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. On Sunday, check out Kathy's Quilts for her Slow Stitching Sunday. I'll be working on some more hexagon flowers in purples and whites during the morning and evening between easter egg hunts and heading to Grandma's for Easter lunch with the family.
