The week has been rather quiet as we have tried to keep it unscheduled while waiting on the newest grandbaby. It will be very busy next week as we watch two little ones while Mommy is in the hospital. It looks as though she will make her scheduled C-section date on Monday.
So....I have had some free time to do some sewing around here. Other than mending that has been piling up, I worked on my next six blocks of the N.Y. Beauty quiltalong. The blocks seem to come quickly so I am still two blocks behind and now the new set is here too. The hardest part is selecting the colors of the batiks. It is definitely scrappy and all from my stash.
I sewed a skirt for one of the granddaughters who has a birthday on Easter Sunday and then had some extra fabrics so I made a small tote for her as well.
I finished the little Easter dress off with a hat and bloomers. I hope she will keep the hat on as she was having quite the fun removing it when I tried it on her. Hmmm.
The hummingbirds have returned from their migration and I think they brought all of their friends. I am finding that I have to fill the feeders twice a day around here. I may need to get a job just to support the birds!!!
The yard is all in bloom with the nicer weather we have been enjoying. The iris are blooming in my iris garden and they look so pretty. It is interesting to see that they bloom in colors. Right now the purples are out and then the yellows and pinks will bloom later.
I mailed off my mug rug to my birthday partner in The Year of Mug Rug Swap. Her birthday is in April.
Other than that, the week has been quiet and enjoyable with little ones stopping in for visits.
I'm wishing all of those who celebrate, a blessed Easter.
