At least the weather here in Northern Ohio for Easter was perfect. It was a bitter sweet time for our family, daughter No. 3 and her family were not able to join us again this year. They were here two years ago, which to my way of thinking..........seemed like last year. It's that old age time flying thing!!!!
We still tried to keep with some traditions though. My oldest grandson (15) and oldest granddaughter (13) along with their 10 year old brother wanted to do an egg hunt. Which I heard through their mother was my idea and they would do it "for me"! When I brought up the idea to them.........they quickly responded with a yes. "Make it hard for us Gramma" came the cry from my granddaughter.
So like the dutiful Gramma that I am (LOL) I buried 66 colored plastic eggs. Everyone had their own colors. So, 3 grandchildren and my 2 daughters and son were also game to play. Candy in some, IOU's in some for a later date, and the grandchildren's Easter Money in one.
So, of course, my youngest grandson found all of his except the one with the money in it. So, I toured the yard around the house a couple of times........can't find it. Then I asked him for the 3rd time if he had actually looked in a certain place.........well no, he thought I said something else. Anyway, thank goodness, he found his money. Note to Myself: do not put their Easter Money in a plastic egg and hide it.
So, out of 66 eggs hidden, and me unable to bend or walk the rest of the day, they found all but 2. We did several searches, and I can't for the life of me think of where the heck they would be. Note to Myself: Requested by egg hunters.........Gramma make a map the next time!!! LOL
Back to Quilt Talk.......... I finished the April Quilt Challenge given to us by Kathy T. from her group SQTG. I am pretty proud of myself so far this year. I have made all 4 quilts as of this date. This, I think is my all time favorite small quilt challenge. I had never done Prairie Points before, have always wanted to do them.........so I was feeling a little unsure of myself for this challenge. The quilt turned out to be a really fun and quick small quilt to do. The Prairie Points were so much fun ......and they actually turned out even on all four sides.
Quilt Name: Prairie Point Delight.......23 1/2" x 29"
Bye for now......please visit again.
