And of course, besides the health issues, there was Easter waiting in the wings. My children all came home, and it was the first time in several years that we were all here for Easter. Lots of cooking and cleaning to do in preparation. It was just wonderful to have everyone here, even if it was such a short time. My daughter is staying until Friday, so I get to have lots of time with her!
I didn't have much time for sewing, so I haven't been doing much new, just trying to get the last blocks done for my DJ quilt. I now have only 5 left to go. I can't make more than 1 a day, but slow progress is better than no progress. So far I haven't finished today's - I still have all the handwork to do on it. Slow but steady...
This one is from Cathleen here in my home state. She said these were her only pastels (which I had requested in the swap), and it's a beautiful block. The picture doesn't do it justice at all.
This is from Dara in Georgia. We're in a monthly block swap, and we've been swaap buddies before. She does beautiful work, as you can see from this beauty.
This second pretty pastel Dutchman's Puzzle block is from Tiffany, and I'm ashamed to say I can't find the envelope, so I don't know where she's from. Aren't they all pretty?
Then the mailman brought me the first two packages for the Red White and Blue No Sew Swap. Such beautiful fabrics, all nicely cut and ready to finish up. These two groups are from Robin and Mary, and we have10 more to go, including mine, to complete the swap.
