Getting Ready for Easter!

The weather in my Quilty Corner was just gorgeous
for the 1st Day of Spring on Saturday!!

The need to be out and about ... and to find jelly beans and chocolate Easter bunnies ... took over and I went shopping, did a little retail therapy and came home with a bagful of goodies which I have hidden away for a few more days ... well after leaving a few Lindt truffles out for sampling. I had a lot of help making those disappear over the weekend ... all three of my adult children stopped by on Sunday. This always makes me very happy. I told them they all have to come back on Easter Sunday to get the rest of the goodies. So I am preparing for a lovely Easter Brunch with my family.

Then on my trip to the grocery store I bought a ha
m and started menu planning. Yum! I also could not resist the lovely, yellow daffodils that now grace my kitchen table. They smell so lovely and as the weather has turned gray today and there is more rain coming, their sunny smile is really brightening my day!

... and ...

Since the grocery store is so close to a quilt shop, I just had to stop in and see their new goodies and I found this wonderful bolt of "Bunny's Day Out" border print in the clearance section!! So clearly I had to partake of this bargain fabric ...

I am planning to make a table cloth with it for Easter!! I used some of this fabric that was left from making some charity blocks and a baby quilt last year in the placemats that were in the previous post so they will match perfectly!

While I accompanied my daughter as she looked for new spring clothes at Kohls I could not resist those ceramic Easter baskets. Too cute. I am sure the guys in my life have been missing having a pink ceramic Easter egg basket in their lives! ;-)

Still working on my Mystery Quilt. I am loving how the center medallion is coming together. I am thinking of changing the borders around to better suit my needs. So my mystery will remain a mystery a little longer.

Well, I am off to clean my home and then to sew!!

Have a happy quilty day!! :-) Pat
