Happy Easter

Thought I would send you some Easter flowers. See how this patch of Primroses has increased. Have 4 colors in bloom now.

Saw some more new ones at the stand this afternoon but they were still in the greenhouse. Will stop next week after the Easter traffic is over and see about some more to fill in this little plot.

Here's a closeup of the red ones.

I also planted the 6 pots of purple creeping phlox among the naked ladies leaves so when they die off hopefully they will spread. Also want to get some other colors to put among them.

I have been doing a little sewing. finished this Pineapple Blossom quilt that is the Friendship block swap for our little online group. Now I want to get it quilted for a table topper for the kitchen table. It should just cover good with no complaints from Hubby about corners. I still need to find something for the backing. It is just too wide for a full width of fabric so either I use the wide fabric and cut or piece something else.
I also finally finished hand quilting my Christmas quilt. I'm sure I had showed a picture of this when I started it way back last year sometime.
Will get another picture of it soon. Need to cut binding for it and get that on but the next project to get started on is the Sunbonnet quilt I showed in my last blog.

We are having a downpour this morning. I need to get out to Curves when they open. Then see what to do. This will help all the flowers that are coming up.
Hubby is coming along. I know he is trying but now both his arms, wrist, hands are hurting. Don't know what the cause is now as he doesn't have gout anymore. They want him to see his Neurologist so guess that will come after he gets his new pacemaker next week. Hopefully that will help. I've been asked over to my friends home for Easter Dinner on Sunday so that will be a change.
Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday . Thanks for stopping by

Your flowers are lovely. Mine got nipped by frost last week. I am glad to hear that George is improving, but for now he needs to get stronger so you can handle him. Don't rush it. I hope you have a great Easter with your friends. You are a special lady.

Sending my love and a big hug for Easter. The flowers and quilt are wonderful to look at. You give me many ideas. I am happy for what I can do each day and need to leave it at that. What a joy to see your accomplishing the things that you do.
