Easter Day a Time for Renewal of Faith and Hope

Happy Easter and hoping all are having a great day in rejoicing the fact that He Has Risen from the Grave!

I know I am late in posting for HQAL, but I have just finished another block for Sweet Stitches. Check out the ladies who participate in this group – they really make some beautiful quilts!  This one is Number 9 of 12!  On the way to a finish (maybe this summer).  This is the Squirrel with the Acorns for the Winter!  When I purchased the BOM series, fabric was furnished, so it will be fun to make a whole quilt out of the ‘individual’ blocks.

After 3 months and 13 days of our personal journey of “distancing” from a normal life – today after my walk I sat on the porch and enjoyed the fresh air.  It is going to be a hot summer this year, at least in South Texas.  My Weather Radar kept telling me it would be in the 70’s with humidity in the 80’s but the Weather Woman kept telling us that it would be in the 40’s.  Humm I need to send her a link to my APP.  LOL.

I am beginning to miss our annual Spring getaway, but then remember that we still have to go through the Heart thing to get Clay up and running! (No control on the timeframe) I have started appliquéing and working on my embroidery projects again, especially when the TV is on, or if Mr Fibro is hanging around, like he usually does in the Spring time with all the drastic weather changes.   It would be so nice to just give up, sit in a chair and watch nothing but mindless movies, BUT alas, I cannot do that!  I must continue on with my schedule (really have lost the desire to be the house cleaner every 3 weeks).  Walking releases those endorphins that help us have an upbeat day with power positive thinking!  (Now do not think that I can be positive every day – LOL).

Have a blessed week and let’s all think positive about going back to living EVEN if it means gloves and masks!  Heck you will save on makeup!  LOL

Hugs to all – Nanette
