Happy Easter!




Well it doesn't feel much like spring this weekend. Bits of snow fall, then sun, then black rain clouds...and all of those changes in less than an hour! The photo on the left shows the edge of one of those clouds coming into the next village of Overbury.

Holidays are tough to be away from home. On Good Friday my family usually goes into the North End of Boston and shops at the "farmers" market and the Italian Bakeries. In ends with a large pizza (no meat) at one of the Italian restaurants. I have to admit I missed that a bit. This year I helped out with a village tearoom to raise money for a new dishwasher for the village hall. There is a long history of folks walking up Breedon Hill on Easter weekend. Participating did make me a bit less homesick.

I am trying very hard to organize my fabric and sewing stuff which means I am not getting as much sewing done. Don't you hate when that happens? I have a quilt for my Fairford group that needs to be quilted but I just can't get myself going on it. Uggghh...


I cruised through my photo files to find springy quilts without much luck. So here is one of my antique log cabin quilts. The center is a red wool and the entire block is just over 4-1/2 inches.

That "Bunny Calendar" quilt is just the cutest thing! I'm off to Google it so see where it came from.

Good luck with the uhhhgggg sorting. NOT fun.

Happy Easter! I would always much rather sew then organize any day. It is nice when the organization is finished, but that is never my favorite part. Love the quilts!

That antique quilt is such a beauty. Gorgeous quilt. Sorry you're feeling homesick. Sucks sometimes to be far away from home. We had hail here on Friday.

That log cabin is really neat. It really has that "something" to it.

I totally related to wandering the halls of our quilt spots with fabric in hand to organize. Its a worthy task but means something isn't resting right at the machine. And fabric is so seductive. ;) It helps after a couple days I think.

Day after Bunny Day Love, *karendianne.

A happy belated Easter to you as well! I've been way behind on blog reading so have just gotten to your "funny MS" posts -- can I just say that I admire anyone who can recognize the amusing and the ridiculous in life? You truly are one admirable lady :0). Thanks so much for sharing! (have I also mentioned that I admire those who can spell but I'm not one of them?)

Oh, i love this antique log cabin. Such warm, soft, delicate colors, and an artlessness about it, however much thought must have gone into it.
