This morning my darling Lillian told me that Easter was her fave holiday. I asked her why…she said, "Because Jesus died for our sins and then he ROSE again!!" She's just 9, but I think she's got it! Easter is even better than Christmas because of Christmas wouldn't even be celebrated without Easter. His sacrifice on the cross and the empty tomb three days later is what it's all about. And to be able to approach Him and know beyond a shadow of a doubt that when I approach Him, he only sees me sinless, holy, righteous (lots of "Religious" words, but it's what it's about!)…and He loves me. He blesses me!! And He accepts me into his fold (yep, you guessed it…sheep reference!!).

All that to say, Happy Easter!!

I tend to work in my craft room sporadically right now. It's a good thing, though. Keeps things fresh and keeps me persistent, finishing projects all over the place. That's hasn't really been in my nature, but change is good, right?? So here are some works in progress (or WIP)…

This was my mom's Christmas present (in 2009!! LOL!!) – a trip to the quilt store for a quilt kit for me to make for her bed…I gave her one block this past Christmas, and since her birthday is coming up (the day before Mother's Day!! eek!), I thought I'd put this bad boy to bed (Literally!!! LOL!!). 

So mom, don't look too closely!! LOL!! the top is completely done! and I LOVE it! Next week, sandwiching and quilting and binding. So fun!!
