Quilt With Us

I really do hope that everyone had a Passion Spirit Led week.  I know I did.  

Besides all the normal domestic stuff we all have to do, I was able to complete the hand sewing of the binding on the quilt and hand sewed on the custom label.  I was able to complete the transaction after Church services on Sunday.  Sorry no picture of me handing it over.  But I do have pictures of the 72 inch by 89 inch quilt.

My husband is holding it up for me and he is 6'3" tall.  Do you see the individual bats that were appliqued on to it.  There are a total of 5 bats on the top.  

There was a slight breeze blowing making it difficult getting the picture.

I machine embroidered the label, then hand sewed it on (called applique).  LOL  There was a lot of hand sewing on this one.

Then came the celebration of Easter with most of the family on Saturday.  It was at one sons' home.  They held an egg hunt just for their daughter.  She was the only child present.  Seth (16) was with his mom,  And baby Daniel went to Houston with his parents.  He could not have hunted eggs anyway.  He is only 8 mos. old.

Here is Addy in her Easter dress hunting eggs.  By the way, she will be 3 in May.

Her little basket had to be emptied several times before she found all of them.

There are already eggs poured out on the floor for opening, though she is not eating any of it.

The site will not allow me to add anymore pictures, so, after this posts, I will put more in commits.

This coming week I hope to help my husband in the yard.  There are so many weeds in the gardens.

Oh, I discovered one of my new lilies bloomed Sunday morning.   I will try to remember to take a picture and post later also.

If I tire of weeding, I will do weaving.  I need to get the yard banner done.

May everyone have a blessed Spirit Led week

You have been a busy lady.  Lovely quilt.  Addy is adorable, I love her Easter dress.  Handsome son with girlfriend. Those kids are all adorable also.  I had a great but very busy Easter.  Got up for Sunrise service and breakfast. Came home and got changed up for the morning service and then went back in the evening for choir practice before the Cantata.

My Lily

Though I have not taken pictures of the lily yet, here are a few more from this past week.

Daniel is the baby who was out of town over the weekend.  So his uncle Kyle was here and will deliver his Easter bunny soon.  I hope his dad and mom will send a picture of the bunny and Daniel together.

Addy got hers on Saturday.  Since my timeline was so stressed, I was not able to get anything on the other ears.

Here is our oldest son with his girlfriend and her kids.

This is the lady I taught to quilt with that huge Bat quilt.  Her daughter made a jelly roll race that I also finished for her before Christmas.  

Now to my morning prayer time.  I need to be well awake and 2 cups of coffee in me to concentrate.

Have a Spirit Led day
