Easter and April Showers

It is very chilly in Nova Scotia today. Not at all like Easter weather so I did not mind at all to work on my mystery BOM with a Christmas theme The 11th block... only one more to go. It is hard to believe the end is already here. I had a lot of fun with the BOM. The fabric added to the excitement. Beautiful!

My Easter table awaits the gang for a brunch tomorrow♥♥♥

This runner was made with a spring fabric.."Verna" (which is a surprisingly a favourite of mine as I tend to go for darker colors). I did needed a runner for my Easter table, and as it turned out I made this for the workshop, I did, at La Guilde Acadienne de Clare on Wednesday.

Easter is a promise God renews to us each spring, and so may the promise of Easter fill your hearts with peace and joy!

Happy Easter

This is definitely a time of Resurrection... and it has brought me back to blogland! I have been away from blogging far much longer than I thought I would be... but I have been busy and a good busy! Sewing is still on my daily agenda and now I get to enjoy quilting with all the members of La Guilde Acadienne De Clare at least once a week. I finished the Synchronised Spinning in the Folk Art by Buggy Barn. I am thinking this quilt will be perfect for our nephew who last summer had an accident in a pool and is now a quadriplegic. A 42 years old engineer with a promising career and a lovely family. Denis inspires us everyday to be grateful for what we have... even the little aches and pains. I have been dipping into my scraps and enjoying making small projects I was inspired to make some pin cushions from the CGQC ( Charming Girls Quilt Club) pincushion exchange Kris hosted. I was away when this was taking place so when I returned I decided to make a few which do come in handy when you need a quick gift. The Guild has been meeting to sew every Wednesday evening and an all day workshop on one Saturday a month. This last Saturday Lorna, a guild member choose a Thread Catcher as our project. The piece had a little bit of Paper Piecing which added just the right challenge. add a little pin cushion and everything fits just perfectly in my sewing centre.
This week is a very special week for me , I love Holy Easter week.

♥♥♥Easter spells out beauty, the beauty of a new life. ♥♥♥

And I wish you all a blessed Easter

Mystery block #10

and possibly one of my favourite.... oh! what am I saying .. I love them all and the patterns are so much fun to make♥♥♥ I am also in the process of figuring out how to assemble these into placemats...

I have completed all my blocks for the Garden Party quilt

so now I am doing the hand...appliqué...

Whenever I have a big project going I like to get away from it for a while and work onsmall, quick projects...I made a few of these coaster sets ... and

I finished piecing another tree skirt for the church Bazaar.. now it is ready to be sandwiched and the quilting.... machine quilting: "that is".

Spring is slow coming but it does peek once in a while.. .. The quild is still going strong and lots of happy quilters contribute to making positive and happy attitudes. No matter what the weather the members always bring their own sunshine to the sewing circle. :)
