A great Easter...

What a great Easter we have just had..... perfect weather, little bit of rain on Friday and Saturday then sunshine and a little breeze for the rest of the weekend.....  I helped mow the lawns and pull a few weeds ..... we had Bob Steve (DH)the builder in and he built a bit more of my new chook house..... yay nearly time to go and buy some chooks I can't wait.... and we changed our clocks back... wow... that makes such a difference I know it is only 1 hour but the days seem so long I felt like I had a really relaxing few days....

Last week I joined the quiltalong group to stitch the Gardener's Journal..... what a good idea especially since I have had a kit for this quilt in my cupboard since 2006....
so Friday I traced off all the stitcheries and started sewing on Saturday.....


But we had a sad day today.... our baby daughter Kate has flown the coop again .... she and one of her girlfriends left this morning on a driving trip to the Sunshine coast, she plans on getting a job and living there for at least 12 months....
so now I will have to start planning a holiday in Qld to visit with her.... hmmmm where did I put that quilt shops of Australia guide...lol...

Another excuse for you to do some tripping about Sheryl and some more shopping of course. Great to have you join the Stitch a long, its such a good way to get the quilt done isn't it.
