A VERY HAPPY EASTER TO ALL.
Today here in Michigan it is a bit over casted and coolish for this time of year. But tomorrow promises to bring "Sunshine"!
My Easter Catus is in Bloom. It has the most gorgeous and unusual bloom I have ever seen. I just love it. I will have to try and stitch it into a project.
In the past year I have learned how to crochet. I am progressing slowly but have come to enjoy it a great deal.
Below is the most lovely, unique and special crochet doily I have ever seen. Because Easter is My Most Favorite Holiday I ask Donna of
"Crochet Treasured" online Etsy Shop to make me one. Donna your crocheting is awesome and this doily is truly beautiful. Thanks a million for creating it for me.
About a week or so ago I received a surprised package in the post. Hmmmmmm I wonder who had sent it. I discovered Di My Dear Friend from QLD. Australia had sent it along. Di has a lovely blog called,
"Dinky Di Quilting and Crafts" please have a look I am sure you will enjoy your visit.
Oh my goodness what lovely goodies were inside. Beautiful Pastel fabrics from Kaffe Fassett. A very pretty Japanese wood seam ripper and a couple of buttons and a pretty yellow butterfly. Di also included some very lovely Hand-Dyed Perle Thread made in South Africa. Thanks Di a million for your lovely surprised gift.
Below is a photo of some goodies I bought for myself from an online store owned by Valerie Bothell of
"The Pink Bunny"! Valerie has some very very lovely threads, silk ribbon, embellishments and patterns any crazy quilter would absolutely love to have.
In the photo below you will also find some more goodies I bought from Chris Daley from
"Greetings From The Shady Grove". You will find the lovely hand-dyed velvet fabrics in Chris's etsy shop. I look forward to stitching on them.
I have a passion for roses and I truly love working with felt. Paulette from New York creates the most lovely roses from felt.
Paulette has an etsy shop called, "Beedeebabee" please have a look I am sure you will enjoy your visit. Today Paulette package arrived and it wrapped so very pretty. Paulette also sent along a very pretty wee felt chick pin as a surprise.. Thank you Paulette I truly admire you creations.
I would like to leave everyone with a wee poem on Friendship.
Friends! in this world of hurry
And work and sudden end-----------
If a thought comes quick of doing
A Kindness to a Friend-----------
Do it this very instant!
Don't put it off-----don't wait!
What's the use of doing a kindness
If you do it a day too late?
Again I would like to wish everyone a Very Happy and Glorious Easter!
