Easter Weekend Sew In .......

Last weekend, I joined Wendy and lots of other ladies for some Easter sewing. I mainly concentrated on my Splendid Sampler blocks which had been building up.
Over the last couple of weeks I have been on holidays. Firstly to Tasmania with my hubby to catch-up with family and also to attend Let's Get Stitched, then home and off to another retreat at Tamborine Mountain not far from where I live.

Before I left I had joined The Splendid Sampler on-line group hosted by Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson. It started mid February and 2 free blocks are given weekly.
I managed to get a few done before I left but when I arrived home I had lots of blocks waiting for me so that is what I concentrated on over the weekend. Lots of prep work and some stitching.
Some of the blocks below are ready for the embroidery to be done.

I also traced and started to stitch Wendy's free Happy Easter block. I'm using a blue background and a Cottage Garden thread called Indian Lily.
Below are the blocks I have finished so far......
Fabric used is by designer : Sweetwater. Mainly from their Reunion and Hometown ranges.
Thank you Wendy for hosting and for the free Happy Easter block you gave us.
Well must go, more work to do on those blocks...............
