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!

Cathy: Happy belated Easter, lovely photo of you your Mother and daughter.
Beautiful chest of drawers, nice color, great idea for storage and display.
Lizzie is adorable, we have a 50 pounder that thinks she a lap dog.
Have a lovely week.

What a great family picture. We are both fully vaccinated as is our DD who works for our school system and got the vaccine earlier for her age. Glad to able to see her and give her a hug! I love the chest. I agree it is a wonderful place to display stitching. I also love the wall display!

What a fabulous photo of you, the Mad Tatter and your daughter! I love the chest you picked up; it looks like it will be a wonderful way to display items as well as store them. Have a wonderful week, Cathy!
