Spring is here - at least for today

This cute little punkin in our front yard is our younger grandson.  We always have him on Fridays, and today was a lovely day, so he spent quite a little time outdoors.

A couple weeks ago I was in our local quilt shop and saw this wonderful breast cancer batik that I just had to have to make a quilt for our DDIL who is currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer.  I also found the perfect fabric (in my opinion) to go with it, the beautiful green.  I found a star I really liked on EQ and went from there.  I am pleased with how it turned out, and I know our DDIL will love it.  I will mention that they consider her to be in remission, but she still must have radiation treatments because there was cancer in lymph nodes.  Obviously, our hope is that remission is permanent.

Happy Easter, Iris wallhanging completed and shop hop

Happy Easter to everyone!

Tomorrow we will have our family at our house for dinner. We look forward to having everyone here. Yesterday the DGC dyed Easter eggs and did a great job. Our DGDs filled the plastic eggs yesterday and we will have an egg hunt which, I'm afraid, will have to be indoors because of rain.

I am so happy that my iris wallhanging is completed! The name of the pattern is Iris Garden, and it is designed by Eileen Bahring Sullivan. I am happy with it, but I told a friend that I would like to do another similar project because I learned a lot, and I think I could do a better job. I sure do enjoy the paper piecing.

Two friends and I went on a local shop hop today, and had such a good time. We went to four shops, and yes, of course, I bought way too much stuff. I will try to take a picture of my purchases, but right now I have fabric in the washer and dryer. I didn't think about a taking photo before I started laundering my purchases.
