Easter Weekend

This post was meant for last weekend, but I never got it posted. Sometimes, I’d just rather stitch than post to this blog! The holiday was a little closer to normal; my mom joined us (first time in over a year) and my two children were here. My mom and my daughter are fully vaccinated, my son just received the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, and I will get my second vaccine this week. My husband is scheduled for his first. We just need to get the son-in-law scheduled. Anyway, we took time to snap this photo of my daughter, the Mad Tatter and me.

The Saturday before Easter I purchased this chest at a shop that recycles wood furniture. I thought it would be a nice place to display needlework and it also provides storage for items not on display. What do you think?

Look at this other great purchase I made on Etsy! It came all the way from Norway. These beautiful Hardanger earrings are a little bit larger than a quarter. It was packaged up so nicely. 

I’ll leave you with another snap of Lizzie. She doesn’t realize that she’s too big to be a lap puppy!

A Petite Regal Sewing Set

I had the good fortune to be able to take a class with Merry Cox today via Zoom thanks to the Orange Coast Sampler Guild. In some situations, the pandemic is not such a bad thing because many guilds and other needlework organizations are offering classes and lectures via Zoom!

I’m almost always guaranteed of a finish with Merry when she sends the project in advance. If I have my stitching completed before the class, I can easily finish the project. Merry’s finishing is straightforward and easy to follow.

Without further ado, here is A Petite Regal Sewing Set by Merry Cox.

I have a few more things to share and will try to post again in the next day or two.

Lizzie says hello!
