Happy Easter!!

Happy Easter, dear friends and welcome. What a beautiful day it is! 

Today Mr. Pinker and I will be hosting Easter dinner. The family will be here around noon and after enjoying a good meal and company, we will be entertained by the grandchildren and nephews as they hunt Easter eggs.  Last night we worked on making some make ahead sides like cornbread salad, broccoli salad , deviled eggs and such. 

 I have enjoyed my Easter displays this year even though I feel as though I was late about getting them out. This sweet lamb stitch is  a freebie from  Subrosa and is called "Waiting for Easter" which can be found on her blog in the March 13, 2015  post.  



The grandbabies had their 1st ball game of the season. They had lots of fun and I enjoyed every minute watching them. 

While watching, I worked on a new embroidery which was gifted to me by a dear Caroline. Is those bunnies not the cutest?!!!
This kit called  "The Bunny Kisses" is by Peonies on Sunday and was packaged so beautifully. It includes a preprinted panel,  a very detailed instruction booklet, needle, hoop   and flosses.  I will continue working on these adorable bunnies today.  Thank you so much , Caroline. Hugs

Later in the evening, I will try to put in a good amount of stitching in my Easter quilt. 

Here it is all spread out on my comfy stitchy chair. 


A Sunday post would not be complete without a sweet Sunday quilt stack. Small quilts stacked in one of my daughter's Easter wagons. 


Well, sweeties , I need to get back into the kitchen. There is still lots to cook and the table needs to be set. I am so grateful for the sweet visit.  I hope you have a  blessed and wonderful Easter,  and  I hope you get to spend it with those you love and cherish. 

As always,

Happy Stitching and Quilting, ya'll

  20. What a wonderful Easter with family and also hanging out at the games! Love the sweet bunnies in the embroidery you are working on and love your Easter quilt! After church, ours went to the MeMaw's for lunch with my SILs family. We were invited but Mr. Songbird's regular work days are Sunday-Thursday since he supports a company they own in Australia and they are about 17-18 hours ahead of us! But...at least he gets to do it from home! Have a blessed week and thanks for linking up with Monday Musings!

    1. I am so glad to hear you got to have a very lovely lunch and visit with family. How interesting that Mr. Songbird works for a company so far away. It is so nice to be able to work from home . I can only imagine how he would have to get used to the time difference. Thank you for the sweet visit, Brenda
