Easter Weekend Wrap-up



How can it be the last Saturday in purple already? Yikes....  must find time to sew more purple until the end of the month!

I did add one more house block to the pile this week - total of 4 this month. Oops... guess I did a purple one back in January on the blue month!


And the 7 more birds in the air blocks that I needed. 17 made this month in purple.

I also made progress with the 1857 appliqué blocks.... I have 5 of them appliquéd now.... but need to add the peels to the last 3 blocks.


Head on over to see what the other RSC projects are looking like on Saturday and Oh Scrap on Easter Sunday.

My hand stitching for Slow stitching Sunday with Kathy's Quilts will be adding some peels to those appliqué blocks and starting to add a yellow round to my hand pieced 2 inch trip around the world quilt.

I marked 68 of those tiny yellow squares last night for hand stitching. I finished up the last row of purple this week and decided to go with the alternate yellow color for the next round!



Greg has taken the kids to Grandma's today. I have errands to run and a house to clean (with a little sewing time this afternoon I hope!). Tomorrow will be Easter lunch with Grandpa A, Grandma H and probably a bowling friend T who has no family in the area. Yes Mom, the one I took to the ER last Thursday. The kids reminded me today I needed to get their Easter baskets out so the Easter bunny can fill them tomorrow after leaving an Easter Egg hunt for them through the house. Greg is trying to convince them bunnies don't go out in the rain...... I don't think they are buying that one!
Off to run errands so I can get everything done.... so I can SEW!!!!

  8. When I first saw your appliqué blocks laid out I thought it was a Japanese kimono. It has a definite Japanese feel to it, simple and lovely. Congrats on getting your other purples done. Happy Easter!
