Quilting

I hope you are enjoying your Easter break. I have been enjoying a nice quiet time. All other projects were abandoned this long weekend in favour of a serious hand quilting marathon on my Robyn Pandolph Heart quilt. I am so far along that I really wanted to get closer to finishing it.
I did take a break to visit my FIL and take him lunch. His first Easter alone...always difficult. We had a very nice visit and he was so proud to show me his gorgeous Cooktown Orchid in bloom. The colour was just stunning!



Today was Family day and we had a casual easy lunch....BBQ. I did a very easy cheat cake (store bought) and I decorated it with chocolate eggs and some of my Cooktown Orchid blooms.....pretty and it definitely disappeared down the rabbit hole!
Tying the Grandies down to get a photo was near impossible and resembled herding cats......too much playing to do! They get so excited to be together madness ensues lol!
Dinner will be my favourite.......leftovers!
Ok now that peace and quiet reigns again, it's back to my quilting!
I just loved this bit of Easter silliness so I hope you will excuse me?
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  10. Sounds like a fun weekend. Love the orchids and I am so in favour of those easy make cakes... As Helen Mirren says in Calendar Girls" If all else fails, get it at Marks and Spencers!" ( English shop)
