Happy Easter

Wishing all of my followers Happy Easter! 

Hubby and I went for a walk in the local preserve recently. There were a few ducks and flowers to look at. 

I have been steadily working on the Santa stocking. I am still adding stitches to the furry brim of his hat. I  have a few more light blue stitches to add and then it is all white.

Yesterday I made a quilted fabric cover for my Amazon Fire. I made one for my Kindle years ago and realized I needed one for this device also.

 I won this device at a raffle at my school a few years ago and only recently started using it when my mini iPad started giving me problems. It is somwhat old in computer timelines. With the cover, I can put the power cord inside with it and keep them together. 

Hubby and I bought Easter flowers for our mothers. I picked out this gorgeous hyacinth for myself. Usually I choose tulips, but this gorgeous purple color just called to me.

Easter will be a quiet affair at our house today. Just me, Hubby and my mother-in-law. A small ham, baked ziti, string beans and chocolate cream pie are on the menu. I will visit my mother and bring some food in the hope that she may want to eat it.

Spring is still popping up in my yard also. Here are some hyacinths from a past Easter.

Some tulips also from previous Easter plants.

I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching. I will find some time to work on Santa today.

Thanks for stopping by!

  11. Nice to see some flowers both on your walk and there in your yard. My yellow daffodils are doing well, but this cold spell may ruin them. Argh. Santa is getting there. Hyacinths always smell so good. Enjoy, the purple is pretty.

    1. The cold has been really annoying. We have been having nasty wind chills lately. Thanks for visiting.
