I finished my Easter Egg stitchery, like I was hoping to.
I found the link to the stitchery by chance on Facebook .
Being a complete green horn , I was so excited to learn a few new stitches with this stitchery and definetly fell in love with the double herringbone stitch!
There is a neat tutorial here
I also added some bling with the stones and fabric glue that I had at hand.
I wanted to finish it into a mini quilt,mini quilts have caught my fancy lately, but I have not set my rotary cutting mat and machine ready to sew. One of these days, I will get down to it.Until then it will have to stay on the hoop.
The boys took part in their Annual School Day celebrations and had to practice really hard for it.
The Event was on Easter Sunday . My parents and I attended the early morning Church service, at 4 a.m. , had to prepare breakfast and lunch quickly and had to take them to school for their final practice.
At the school event,Big B gave the welcome address.
and also took part in the School play The Bishop’s Candlesticks
Lil B gave the Vote of Thanks
It was the first public speaking event for both Big B and Lil
B. They both did really well.
Not just a biased mom’s opinion, a lot of other people in the audience said the same too.
Lil B told me, he felt like his heart would jump out of his chest at any minute, it was beating so fast , as he stood there in front of all those people. I’m sure Big B felt the same way too , but just wasn’t as eloquent as Lil B.
The kids and teachers had put in so much effort and the program was very colorful and lively.
The next day was a school holiday and we went to attend the housewarming function of my cousin’s home.Which was so lovely too!
Meeting up with my cousins, laughing over our shared childhood memories and watching our children play and make memories now, are some of the things that really make my heart happy. We were so busy catching up , I forgot to take pictures :facepalm.
