Easter joy and Four Weeks Focus


P1010298

It has been a wonderful day – Easter vacation and sunshine, and the most gorgeous Easter egg ever from my dear husband.
The Easter egg came as a big surprise!
I can remember telling him that I did not want an egg filled with sweets this year, and he asked what to fill it with then, and I answered: maybe fabrics, with a smile.
After that I forgot all about it, but he did not….. He is a keeper indeed :-)

The weather has been beyond lovely this afternoon and it was a good moment to take a good photo of my 9-patch quilt. I love it and all the memories it gives me – of friendship, love and laughter with friends in Shipshewana, Indiana, USA.
I bought all the fabrics at Lolly’s in Shipshewana on one of my trips there.

We could enjoy the sunshine outdoors for the first time on our veranda this year, and DH served white wine “on the rocks”. He got some cooling rocks for his birthday in March, and they are nice to use.

I have found that it is time to find some focus projects and move them forward over a period of 4 weeks, without starting anything new.
Some hand work, some machine work, something fast, something not fast at all.

I need to put the pedal to the metal – stay tuned for updates!

sometimes I think a quilt like the nine patch is the best quilt of all - simple yet perfectly beautiful!

Your nine patch is gorgeous, and lovely that it's filled with happy memories. I think that is the best kind of Easter egg.....lucky you.
