Easter Blessings to all! Church this morning was glorious -- lots of lively, joyous music, and the timeless Easter liturgy.

This afternoon, I caught up on my sleep -- on a lounge chair on our back deck! That's saying something for April in the Foothills of the Rockies!

After a sumptuous Easter dinner (roast lamb, mashed potatoes, veggies, a little red wine, and lemon meringue pie for dessert), I tidied up my sewing centre, and finally filed away a stack of knitting and quilting patterns I'd been saving since Christmas! I have started a separate binder for knitting commentary and instruction, like the articles on felting from and Knitter's Review, and Clara's KR reviews for yarns I want to try. It was tough going, because as I hole-punched the various patterns for the binders, I had to refrain from putting many aside to start on! My Twenty-five Year Plan has enough going -- and soon it will be time to move out into the garden as well.

This is the last week or so of the Canadian Tax Season -- I am anxious for May to arrive, as I have a Free Friday of quilting on May 2, a Saturday Sampler meeting on May 3, and an open house at Traditional Stitches on May 10! Not to mention the Festival of Quilts at Heritage Park on May 24/25...such fun! It's the 8th annual, and the theme this year is "Covering the Park with Quilts". All of this should set me up for my retreat in June with the gang from
Quilting from the Heart in Camrose . We are going up to the 4H Lodge at Battle Lake for the weekend. It will be my first retreat with them, but I am looking forward to it -- new friends, good food, and great quilting. I have decided to do a "UFO" (instead of the Mystery Quilt option), and work on a Sashiko Jacket I have planned for m'self.

Getting on in the evening, and time to go. Have a great week!
