A little here, a little there.

Easter dress and basket


This week began with some precious family time with my little granddaughter. It was her first Easter and her ‘Nana” has a tradition of Easter Egg Hunts for her grandchildren. My daughter decided that the tradition required the purchase of a very special Easter dress. I thought it was quite beautiful and granddaughter caught on pretty quickly to the idea of looking for colorful eggs.




The rest of my week involved flights back to upstate New York and a bit of catching up from the past 10 days. I was able to get some hand-stitching in on the flights so my last pillow from Karen Ruane‘s class is moving forward. It is a bit of one step forward, two steps back at times. After adding some buttonhole stitch, I decided that some of my early stab stitches were too big. My flight from Denver to Chicago involved quite a bit of re-stitching till I was more satisfied with appearances.


Since returning home, I have turned my attention to my glacial flow art quilt which I last mentioned in my opening post for this blog. I prepared the piece for quilting before this last trip and finally began quilting it yesterday.  I started with the arctic flow – for once beginning with what I thought would be the most difficult part. Here is a glimpse at the progress so far. My hopes are to complete the quilting by the end of next week.

  1. Judy Kate is a feast for the eyes in that pretty outfit! 🙂 Brought a smile to my face.

    And your ‘flow’ is flowing nicely — I like the movement you’re getting with the quilting lines. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out altogether.

  2. The glacier piece is stunning. It has true movement to it!

  3. love hand stitching. The dress is awesome! I remember every Easter getting a new dress and shoes. And a basket of candy! I miss that feeling of fresh starts.
