We met last night at sister Janas instead of last week as Cobbler Beth was in town for Easter.. lots of fun, food and catching up as its been months since we have all been together!
 Sister Jana made short cake for the Birthday girls...
I made a 7 layer salad to go with the pizza...
 Janas daughter in law had made a lemon pie ( with Califlower ) for Easter
and we got the left overs. i thought it was really good.
 a bit of catching up before the work!
we love having Beth home!

Sister Janas quilt she made for her grandaughter was first on the frame!

 Auntie Marys busy hands..
Carol Ps junk food - star quilt for her niece was next!

 why roll the quilt to get that middle stitch when we have sister Jana!

Good Friday Hello....

I stopped over to discuss " Timeless Treasures " with Cindys husband Dennis and he showed me that their plant they have had for years had bloomed.. its just beautiful. i think its called a wax plant? the bloom is heavy and solid wax like blooms not airy and delicate.
and then i discovered it bloom bloomed!! Beautiful! delicate airy blooms....

these are my Easter stockings that my friend/kindred spirit Shelly aka.. Shell Bell made me years ago.
i love them and always think of our time together when we were stationed in Rapid City, SD.
i am always trying to perfect my Cracker bread/ lavash recipe..

shrimp with garlic ailoi/havarti cheese...

and always trying to perfect the granite city bacon/tomato flat-bread pizza..

a couple fun Easter chicken photos....

Enjoy your Easter weekend my blog friends!                              jody

Spring is in the Air...

last weekend we had 60-70 above O! so wonderful to feel the warmth and sun. rejuvenating to watch see and hear the signs of spring come alive..

Grandbabe #4 due June 4th and growing..

I stopped over at Auntie Pat/Uncle Jacks for a visit and had Auntie show me some of her vintage quilts her mother had made.. My phone lens was dirty so pictures aren't the best.

Auntie Pat is the QUEEN of scrap quilts and has saved and used clothes that were her mom/dads, her children's and more... she is working on this scrap quilt now.. 

 just wanted to check in with all of you my blog friends.. I'm trying to get back up on the horse as they say, I'm hoping Spring will help me...   enjoy your day!                                  Jody
