Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to one and all!
We have had a happy day with family and friends that we consider family...lovely!
Some mighty fine cooking was done in that beautiful new kitchen, and lots of happy chatter around the table.
Once everyone had gone home, there was even a little snooze on the lounge...I mean I had a few minutes recharge! Sometimes that is just what we need.
Finally my soul searching quilt top is finished. I have nowhere to hang it up for pictures, so I had to wait until I had two willing "holders"...they were very patient.
Here is a lap quilt I started an eternity ago...it is about to be quilted. Just an easy one.
Hope everyone has had a happy day!

Wow! Your soul searching quilt is beautiful -- and finished! Great job! I don't think mine's come out of the bag since I got home from the workshop -- must get back to it. Can't let all those hours of cutting strips go to waste!
