My new treasures!

This is a Laura Ashley planter for $2.00
I put my charging cords in it.  I also purchased some Thank You cards.

 


I enjoy going to the thrift store I also purchased a basket for my sewing:
I love this weave effect.
Have a great weekend, it is raining here and I am off to my sewing room.

Clover Wonder Clips

I love this deer, I didn't  cross stitch the piece.
Do you use your clips?  I didn't use them for awhile, I brought them for when I bind my quilts. The clips are noisy when I move the quilt from the table to the machine but they do come in handy when you run out of pins.

I am working on a project for World of Cross Stitching (WOCS) - it is going to be a phone case or a pouch for whatever you want it to be; they might use it for playing cards.  Yes, people still use them, thank goodness.

So I am happy to report, that I am actually using what I brought (was on sale, can't pass a bargain and I had a coupon). 

I did work in the garden Monday but I was sick with my allergies so I have decided to stay in the house per my DH instructions.  The allergies are no fun with headache, burning eyes, scratchy throat,but lots of hot tea helps and honey. Have a great day everyone.

Should be working in the 'garden'.



I received pink fabric from a church member and I have been working on sewing it together for a quilt.  So much fun but the weather is beautiful and I should be outside working on my garden.  Gardening has been tough this year, so many aches and pain.

Lots of sun outside and it is going to rain this weekend, I have decided that Monday is a good day to work in the garden.  Don't you agree?

I have been cutting fabric for the last 3 weeks so now it is time to sew.  I made up 25 quilts kits for the ministry.


I have enjoyable work cut out for me.

My Easter Basket - fabric

I made an Easter Basket for myself.  I made kits all week long.

Love my Peggy Carr plates, they always fit the season.
















I keep my Easter decorations up for awhile.

The baskets I made for my old neighbors.
This time of year I will have lots of things to do, I am so so behind.  Had a great family weekend.

Read a great book:  "The German Bride" by Joanna Hershon (I think this will be a movie) by 
                                     

Talk to you soon!  Gisela

I love Broadway

I lived in NY most of my life and I have been to plays when I could afford it.  Like Pippin, Promises Promises, Les Mis, 42nd Street and in London I have been to Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Hairspray and Sweeney Todd.  I love theater.  Hear at home The Graduate, Man of La Mancha, Les Mis, Phantom of the Opera, Fiddler on the Roof, and many more great experiences.

Jonathan Groff was in Glee, voice in Frozen and on TV and Broadway.  

You have to see Jonathan Groff tap dance "Anything Goes" -  It is so good and fun.  I am going to dance all day.

He will be in the musical "Hamilton" on Broadway in July currently on Off-Broadway.

Easter Deocration

A tree in Germany
I did 2 baskets already and now I have to make 4 more.  I forgot to take photos of my baskets - they had pin wheels attached tot he basket.  Had stickers, a small purse (poker dots), and bunnies.

I am having issues with composing in between the photos. 

I have to get started on my baskets on a small budget.

Legoland - I am hooked!

I had to get another friend set for my other grand daughter here in Omaha.
Spring break and it is all about legos.  My children had them when they were small but we had no themes then.  I love this caravan set.  My granddaughter 6 made this set in an afternoon.
Legoland in Grapevine.  Children loved to drive the cars.



 
The sets are expensive but it was worth every penny.

More to come about spring break.
