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
