At last I've finished my French Braid Quilt which was made from one jelly roll.
I was lucky to win the jelly roll, along with a super collection of quality fabrics and sewing notions, at a special day I attended at Black Sheep Wools last June.
You can see all about it in my post HERE.
I really enjoyed trying out the "Quilt As You Go" method and I was pleased that the process of joining the quilted panels was much easier than I expected and the back looks good too.
I'm joining in with Annie's Friday Smile today to share the joy I had whilst in Germany last week.
The town, shops restaurants and houses were decorated for Easter and flower boxes (like these below) were all around the town.
Bushes and small trees in most gardens were full of decorated eggs and, near to my family, one of the neighbours had provided this Spring treat by popping pots of daffodils and decorated eggs into the conifer in her garden.
I was given an excellent drum performance in their basement of her Papa's latest "toy".
Together we made lots items from Hama beads and DD made me the fabulous cup and saucer for Mother's Day instead of a card.
My "little" grand daughter is growing so fast (or am I shrinking?) and at only 6 years old is already up to my shoulder.
My little grandson is adorable and so lively and loves anything mechanical that makes noises just like this fire engine. At two and a half it is so funny to chat with him especially in a mix of English and German
Back home now and whilst I always feel so low when I return I also smile at all the fun we've had together and look forward to the next time.
