Happy Easter - Good Friday!

Happy Easter everyone and to all you Believers, a blessed Good Friday!
This is all very weird and exciting - this parcel arrived during the week and I thought 'oh, these are Narelle's Happy Houses for the Swap' - then I thought 'why would she wrap them like this - oh, just maybe she is my Easter Swap Partner' so I left the parcel until this morning to open!

Yes, yes - thank you so much Narelle, and you already know how much I love your gift, thank you again! Pop over to see Narelle at Country Roses and take notice of her header - if you check past comments, you will see I have already told her I love this little basket and you will be able to have a really good look at it! Oh, beautiful fabric wrapped around Easter chocolates, I guess, a wrist pincushion and cute tape measure! This has given me a really bright start to Easter!

Yep, this is it - Dolly Quilt 2 - I'm happy with the 5" courthouse step blocks, foundation pieced, cute and easy - I will try to get another 6 done today! Dolly Quilt 1 is on the back burner - I will finish it as proposed - one day (lol)!
I have had a magazine with the above in it for quite a few years now and think this quilt is just great, so I have been doubling and tripling as I cut each block, so there will be more about!
Stay safe everyone and enjoy your Easter!
PS - this should perhaps have been my priority in this Post - Australia has been so grateful for overseas help in our recent disasters, and I would like you to join me in thoughts and prayers for the victims and families who have been affected by the earthquake in L'Aquila, Italy. God bless!

Lurline have a very nice Easter . Wow that is a big ciggie order I had to look twice at that one .

MYRA said...

Wow! What is with this ciggie comment? hmmm...?

Great gift you got from Narelle! What a great basket! The pincushion may be to attach somewhere on your sewing machine as it looks (from the photo) too big for your wrist...

Great courthouse steps! 8-)

Have a blessed Easter with your family Lurline...
