Easter Sunday!

Wishing you a very happy Easter! It was a good day today. I had the honor and privilege of serving as the assistant minister and cantor for today's Easter service. This is my very favorite service, on the holiest day of the year. So the experience is always a profound one for me.

I had a very quiet afternoon. The past couple of days, History Channel has had some rather interesting documentaries on subjects like the Shroud of Turin and Inside the Vatican. The history of the Vatican and the inner workings were really fascinating. I love documentaries and find them easy to stitch to. So the past two afternoons have been quiet and full of stitching. I even took a nice long nap with my little furgirl this afternoon.

The first two lines of Star Spangled Banner are complete. I knew I had a lot of fabric here, but I was not really aware of how large this piece would be until now. It is really pretty and I realize how dramatic it will be. I am becoming a bit concerned about what it will take to frame it because it is so large.

I made Liesl and I a lovely dinner of baked chicken, brown rice, and broccoli and carrots tonight. Hers gets finely chopped up and for once she did not spit out the veggies, which she usually does quite dramatically. (She is like having a toddler.) She ate her dinner with one eye on my dinner. sigh. It was a holiday and she is spoiled, so I did give her a few bites of my chicken. After that she got extra playtime, and tummy rubs until she fell asleep. She is such a sweet girl, gives me so much, so it makes me happy to spoil her a bit.

I wish you a very happy week!

I know what you mean about the cost of framing. I have started to make wall hangings out of my bigger piece. Basically sewing a strip of fabric framing the piece and then backing it and hanging it on a dowel(sp) rod. Much cheaper, and I think very nice.
