a couple of good days


Hope everyone enjoyed their Easter as much as we did.  Ours was spent with our kids and grandkids and was such a fun day.


Then the day after, I was finally able to sit down at my sewing machine again.  It’s been a couple of weeks.  I made some progress on my grandmother’s double wedding ring.  I’m halfway done with the “eyes” now …about 40 left to go …give or take a few.

And I finished a Sprig block this evening and that makes 19.

…it was another good day.



Tonight I’ll be taking a new book to bed with me.  It’s Murphy’s Law by Rhys Bowen …about a young woman, Molly, who’s running away from a murder she committed in Ireland and heading to America where another murder mystery awaits her.  I think its early 1900’s times. 

I’ve only just skimmed through a few pages but it looks pretty good.

That's an adorable picture of your grands. I'm glad you had a wonderful day. I think I'll have to try your book!

Hello, just popped over from Judy's blog. I'm not a quilter, just wish I was. However I am a reader and half Irish so your book sounds good to me. I love your quilts especially the applique one you have going.

Lots of cuteness here! What little sweetie pies. I love your project... I've always wanted to make one of those eyelash quilts.

Ok both books on my list. I had to laugh at the girls with no shirts on after dyeing eggs. I've done the same thing. I think I have similar photos of my kids and then Allison. Super funny and practical.
