Blessings for You!

I want to thank all of you, my dear friends, for your very thoughtful and caring messages to me, while I was sick.  They lifted my spirits so much, to receive them, and each day, I was a little better, and now I am feeling just fine!

This week was my first good week, and just in time for Holy Week and Easter Sunday preparations.  
I love putting out my favorite Easter decorations, and bunnies must indeed take their part!

"Easter Frills"
With Thy Needle & Thread

Shepherd's Bush
(Messages - Mine)

This week we celebrated Miss Ella's 3rd birthday, with a wonderful birthday party.  Emerson and Harrison were on hand to help celebrate with a few friends.

On the occasion of  Miss Ella's 3rd birthday, Grandma-ma made a quilt, with the motifs from Tasha Tudor's wonderful book,  
"A is for Annabelle, Grandmother's Doll".

These are just a few of the beautiful drawings from the book, which originally belonged to our daughter when she was a little girl.  
When Ella opened up her quilt, she exclaimed,
"Grandma-ma!  It's a story book quilt!"  After we read each lettered block to her, she then wanted to take it upstairs to her room to put it on her bed.  She jumped into her bed, laid her head down on the pillow and covered herself up with it.  I was so thrilled that she loved it so much!

And now, dear friends, I must close here, but with a few words of blessings for all of you, who will be celebrating Easter.

May you be blessed with the joy of your faith in our risen Lord,  this joyous and happy Easter Day!

God Bless You All.  

Love & Blessings!
