Happy Easter



I hope everyone had a happy Easter. We had a quiet, very good day. After church we had dinner with our daughter, who provided the lucsious chocolate cake you see here. Then while she and hubby took naps, I did more sewing.

Then later we had a brief visit with our son and his GF who just returned from their spring break trip. They were bummed to leave warm temperatures and come back to snow, but c'est la vie. Better studying weather, I guess!

I managed to mostly finish the top I made for Tonya's summer class. It's not even spring here yet (fresh snow on the ground, temps in the 30's F); I surprised myself by finishing this project very quickly. It turned out bigger than I intended, but I'm happy that I'll have my own personalized lap quilt. I plan to add borders before I quilt it. I hope to get this one done soon so I can use it right away.

The sign language represents my career (interpreter), and I included a lot of other life symbols and names. This is not at all how I had envisioned this project, but I'm happy with the result.

I LOVE it when bloggers drop little hints about what they do in their careers! What language do you interpret? Very interesting job.

This looks wonderful Carol! I haven't even started yet and won't until after we get moved. I can't wait to see what you plan for the borders.

Happy belated Easter, Carol!

Love your "Carol" quilt! The colors speak of your enthusiasm for life. ;-)

What a great quilt, Carol! I think it is terrific. The chocolate cake looks tempting, too. I didn't know naps were allowed on Easter. *s* I sure could have used one.
