The Weekend Wrap-Up

This weekend I:

  • finished hand quilting a doll quilt for T#2 (she got a doll for Christmas, and I took 6 leftover blocks from her big girl quilt and pieced them together to make a doll quilt).  I need to bind it; I pulled out the leftover scraps from that quilt to see if I have enough fabric to make binding … I hope to get that done this week.
  • survived some pretty major storms that hit our area (more storm warnings for this evening <sigh>)
  • made the carrot cake and layered salad for Easter at DD’s
  • watched some baseball and a movie with DH
  • worked in the toddler nursery at church during the first service (we had quite a few visitors, including a family who’s 2-3 y.o. boy was in the nursery for the first time … he had to sit in the “time-out” chair 4 times! … in the 50 minutes!).
  • had breakfast between the early and late service … our deacons always serve breakfast on Easter, and I do believe that this year’s was the best yet.
  • spent the rest of the day at DD’s … watched the Ts “hunt” for eggs and open their gifts … T#1 really enjoyed his pillow pet, which made the hunt for his (a brown bear) worth all the effort! … had Easter dinner with DD & family and DSIL’s parents (we had pork steaks cooked out on the grill with au gratin potatoes, baked beans, layered salad with carrot cake and Texas cake).
It was a wonderful Easter weekend!

  1. Can't wait to see pictures of the doll quilt. I need to start making one of those for Sadie.

    Sorry about your storms. Some of my kin live in Metropolis and had many hours of power outages over the weekend. I'm glad you have a basement - we don't!

    I can relate to your toddler time out adventures in the nursery. We had one little boy in particular I will never forget.....

    Hope you are off to a great week!

  2. That was nice with the deacons serving breakfast! Glad T#1 liked his pillow pet! Always good when they do, worth the effort indeed!! Sounds like it was a great weekend; had to laugh though about the little one in the time-out chair at church, makes you wonder if he had a bit much of candy before they attempted going to church :)

    enjoy the week ahead!

  5. Your Easter day sounds perfect. We love pork steaks on the grill. Sounds untraditional like our dinner was and very delicious.
