Still here (It's Easter!)

It is the last day of March. I am still here, but have been so busy I recorded very little of March. I ended up not going to the Monbulk quilt show market so I have some freshly sorted stash to destash somehow. (Possibly on etsy?) At the moment we have our daughter and grandchildren visiting with us from Adelaide. This afternoon we managed an Easter egg hunt.

 We hunted upstairs for eggs and managed to find a few to put in our bags. (Ok. Not me. I didn't have a brown paper bag to put eggs in. I am still trying to lose weight. I am 20kgs down now. Must keep it up!)

Our grandchildren were suitably impressed with their haul of eggs. (So were my teenagers!) Once the hunt was over and the required bunnies had been found they adjourned to the kitchen table to consume their chocolate.

Enid's first egg of choice was the biggest egg!

On the sewing front I have been busy with "snowballs". I have been using an American Jane Punctuation charm pack and a red Moda Bella Solids jelly roll to create the snowballs. I thought I might make a quilt with them, but decided to make a couple of table runners instead

table runners!
So that's what I've been up to. A little bit of running around after children and grandchildren and a little bit of sewing. Oh. And a little bit of losing weight too. Bring on April!

The year is running away from me, Ithought it was still March :)
Your snowball runners look a little bit Christmassy, must be the red fabric I think. Well done on the 20kg, you're doing really well.
