It's Easter

Made a start on my Easter photos. We were in America when these photos were taken, and we missed the very hot weather England had in April. Obviously the girls enjoyed it.

Isn't it lovely to play in water when it is really hot?

I am trying to sort out all my embellishments, and found a lot that went with my colour scheme for these pages. The pile does not seem to have got any smaller though.

Grandma has got her sewing mojo back

There is no stopping my grandma now the weather has turned colder and she does not have to work in her allotment so much.

A good friend gave her two pieces of curtaining which she has turned into four bags, and she used some strips of fabric left over from another project to make a bag for someone she works with who has been pestering her for one for ages.

Project Linus had had a polar bear cushion panel donated to them and she has used some other fabric with polar bears on to make it into a lap quilt.

She also cut some boat and dolphin fabrics into squares to make another Project Linus quilt. As you can see I have thoroughly inspected them and refused to get off them when she wanted to take a photo. Well it is my blog, so I should be included.

I hope she now makes a start on catching up on her scrapbooking. She has only got to the end of April with Emily and Katie's book and June with Louis book, so there is plenty for her to do. I would not mind having a long walk either!

Project Linus Quilts

Hi Everyone

Grandma was away on holiday last Sunday, that is why she did not do her weekly blog, and then old age made her forget where she had put her camera, so she could not download any photos for this Sunday. Anyway better late than never.

She has been finishing off two quilts for Project Linus. She did the piecing, quilting and binding, and I did the checking to make sure there were no loose ends.

All those trees and nowhere to do a wee! Apparently they were all blocks which were left over from the Quilt Time Project Linus Day last February, so I am glad she had finally used them all up. This cat quilt is also made from left over blocks.

I think it should be a dog quilt next time.
