Good Morning!

It is a bright and beautiful day today in SW Virginia.  We are only supposed to get up to 62 today but that is just perfect.

Did everyone have a great Easter day?  We sure did!  As usual no celebration is complete in our home without a ton of food!  I had 7 people for lunch and you could hardly tell anything was touched!  But it was soooo good!
See what I mean!  Makes me hungry just looking at it!
Check out those deviled eggs!  I dyed the white of the eggs before I filled them with the yellow mixture.  I saw the idea on Pinterest.  They were so pretty.  And that yellow and green ferris wheel used to belong to my boss when he was little.  He gave it to me when Yngwie was only 1, so that I could use it for his birthdays.  I have never seen another like it.
How about some birds nests?  I made some of these with the chow mien noodles and some with potato sticks.  Have I made you hungry yet?
Of course I colored a few boiled eggs that my son and husband devoured for breakfast.
Look what the Easter Bunny brought me!  YUM!  I will be eating on this thing until Halloween!
The Easter stockings were a big hit and were really fun to put together.
And while this is a terrible picture of me, here is me, my Dad and my sis.  I love my dad soooo much and am so blessed that he is still with us.  He will turn 80 next month and still rides his Harley Davidson motorcycle.  I hope I will be just like him!
I have been doing lots of sewing!  I made 3 pairs of shorts, that I call knock around shorts.  Just made with some bits of fabric I had laying around and are pull on, just to wear around the house and garden in.  I also made a really cute vintage dress and a pair of charcoal gray capris, though I haven't take a photo of either of them, maybe I will this week.  Last night I cut out a swim suit.  It is from a 1970's pattern and is more of a swim dress.  I can't wait to get it sewn!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!  Happy Humpday!
