Early Easter

Thursday ended as well as it started. Hubby treated me to quilting classes that began last night, and I ended up being the only pupil! Total one-on-one tutelage! I completely ate that up. I have a great teacher and I'll get to work with her for three more Thursday nights. I can't wait to show you my finished project and hear what you think. Here's a sampling of what my fabrics look like... The Alexander Henry fabric with apples and pears is one of my faves!When I got home from class I entered the house and the only light was from the candles on my homemade birthday cake... Pineapple Upside Down Cake. Loved it! I had a piece as soon as I blew out my candles. Hubby and The Little Guy got me everything that I had asked for... a gift card to JoAnn Fabrics, the purse pattern and fabric from Heather Bailey's site, and the 17th Edition of Emily Post's Book of Etiquette. We had fun flipping through some of the pages, and I can't wait to see what all is in there. I'm sure I'll have to share some of the funnier stuff with you guys.

To wrap up the evening we had a little bit of Easter indoors. The Little Guy wanted to hunt eggs, so Hubby & I hid the ones we colored last night around the house and the hunt followed soon thereafter. We used a Camo egg dying set, but none of the camo stickers would stick today when we tried to apply them, and the dye kept coming off so we had to use little bits of paper towels under the eggs as we placed them around the house. I thought briefly about using super glue to stick the stickers, but then decided against it since I really want to eat the eggs! Here are some pics...
