Happy Easter

Wow it's so hard to believe that it is Easter already!  And what a beautiful Easter it was in Pennsylvania.  We could not have asked for nicer weather - in the 70's all day with sunshine.  I went to sunrise service with my girls this morning and then had Easter breakfast.  Following breakfast was our regular morning worship service at church and then we went to my mom's for Easter dinner.  We got to spend the day with family.  My sister was home from Georgia and my other sister was there and my brother came over.  Its been probably at least 30 years since my mom had all her kids home for Easter dinner.  What a great day to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior!

Now for some updates  - this picture to the left shows what I received in an exchange with Carein of the group Stitcherhood.  She made me a bookmark, a needle keeper, a key chain with my name on it.  The neatest thing was the little bowl that she made for me - it is so precious!!!

The picture to the right shows the stash that was sent to Tracy Harris.  Tracy had a house fire and lost all of her stitching stuff.  The picture shows the floss and fabric and gift certificates that were sent to her from all her stitching friends.  Thank you to all who contributed - the box was stuffed very full when I sent everything to her!

Here is a cross stitch update on my Amazing Grace by My Big Toe Designs.  I have accomplished a lot on this piece this week.  I was able to complete the top row of the border this evening.  I am really enjoying working on this project and hope to make a lot more progress in the coming weeks.  I started this on New Year's but had not been working too much on it until this week.  Hopefully I will have another update on it real soon!

Until next time................................
