Happy Belated Easter

Howdy Bloggers! Hope that all of you had a great Easter. We spent the day at my sister-in-laws, and had a wonderful Ham dinner with all the fixins. Boy can that girl can cook!!! We had the best time visiting and eating, and eating and eating :-)!! Back to the diet today!

I had a wonderful box waiting for me. Gee, wonder what this could be? It's Nellie Annie Blue and Red, and Naked Annie. How cute are they? Naked Annie has a little heart locket that says made with love on it! They are made by the fabulous Nicole Ellison.....so talented!!!!! In the little tickled pink box was some yummy chocolate that didn't last long at all - thanks Nicole....the Annies are perfect! If you need an Annie just hop on over to her blog and check out what is for sale.
I finished the binding on these 3 quilts for a customer. The two flower ones were just the right size to finish in the car going back and forth for Easter. The picture isn't very good, but that pink, black and tan quilt is wonderful. Someday I'll get the hang of this picture taking thing!
Haven't sewn much, but I have made a little progress on my Prairie Paisley quilt. All the strip sets are done for the 9 patches and I am hoping to get the 9 patches pieced this week. Talk about yummy fabric!!!!

Wishing you all a great week and full steam ahead to Spring. Bring on the tulips! PS. I keep forgetting to mention that there is a Mary Englebriet cham pack and jellyroll giveaway at work. Pop on over to the blog and leave a comment to sign up!

Easter blessings to you!

Wonderful Annie dolls - so cute!

I love that Prairie Paisley line but I'm trying really hard to resist. I especially like the pattern you're using. I feel myself weakening. LOL

Happy Easter to you Ms. Polka Dot. Glad it was a good one for you.
Love the quilts you have finished. Your photos look fine dont worry. I feel the same way you do about mine. They look good when I snap but when I post them the computer eats the good one and puts up my bad one. LOL!!! That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Oh love those Annies too.

Naked Annie??!! That's too funny :)

I love Prairie Paisley, I have a jelly roll but haven't seen any yardage locally yet. I can't wait to see yours when it's done.
