We did make it to Florida after 2 long days of driving. The second half of the trip took two hours longer than it should have, so 23 hours total. It's 76 degrees here!!!!!!!!! a far cry from 35 in Ohio. We had a great Easter here.
The little bag below I made for my DD1 from a Terri Atkinson book. I can't remember the name at the moment. DD1 picked the fabric from the Fabric Shack. It was an easy little pattern to follow. I remember showing this hat as a WIP several weeks ago. Well now it is quilted up and I made it into a pillow.
These lovely LITTLE threads are 3-strand Valdini sets from Back Door Primitives. I finally broke down and bought some....kinda of pricey $$$ for such little thread. However, I LOVED using them. On the long drive I used different ones for about 5 projects. You know I have a lot of WIPs so I am slowly working on them and these threads motivated me to get some done. I will post them when they are completed. I even did some punch needle!
And here is the loot that DD1 and DD2 got from the Easter bunny! Mmm yummy stuff...
My Mother in law and the girls are heading to some quilt shops in the area....I hope to take lots of pictures and blog about our adventures soon.....
I adore the hat pillow! Your Florida warmth sounds SO good!
yikes all that driving! I do not envy you one bit! I use DMC perle thread, no way will I ever go back to stranded cotton mess.. I do have a stash of stranded cotton and I do use it, but once its gone, no way will I buy more.. I tend to do redwork anyways...
good haul for easter and your current projects are just perfect!
Oh that pillow is sooo cute!! So is the bag, and that thread is yummy. I am so glad you made your trip :)
