A wonderful day!

Saturday, April 23, 2011
It's Easter Sunday here - a wonderful day!  We celebrate every day the fact that Jesus is alive, but somehow Easter Sunday is extra special.  We're off to church soon and I have the privilege of playing the organ for the service.

It's also a wonderful day too because we have one of our granddaughters with us.  Anita surprised us on Friday with a phone call asking could she come and stay for a few days. It's five years since we last saw her (she lives in Japan, has been studying in Brazil, and this year is studying in Australia). We have a lot of catching up to do!

There's been a little bit of sewing done. As I've mentioned before, I love making projects for children and another wall-hanging is now complete. It's a wall-hanging with a twist - but a sneak peak or two will have to do as it will be off to a magazine soon.

I had in mind some bright colours when I went looking in the stash for fabric for this project, not something I have a lot of, but there in the cupboard was a box of fat quarters that our daughter had given me for Christmas and the bright colours were just perfect for the design.

My "Fun and Fruity" mug rugs are in this month's edition of the fabulous Australian magazine, Country Threads.  

And here they are on the editorial page:

I never lose the excitement of seeing my designs in print! 

I better go and get organised to go out!  I hope you have a wonderful Easter Sunday too!
