I hope your Easter weekend was full of sunshine and laughter. We spent Saturday morning at Saguaro National Park East enjoying the wildflowers. Glorious, just glorious!
There are great masses of these happy yellow flowers all over the place.
Here’s a closer view of the flowers themselves.
I love the poppies and the little bug on the edge of the flower petal posed quite nicely for me.
Even the prickly pears are starting to dress up for Spring.
I made lemon poppyseed cakes for our neighbors as our little Easter tokens of friendship. I should have taken a picture of the whole parade of cakes but here’s one perched in our Tombstone Roses.
My friend Donna in North Carolina needs a knitting needle case so I made one for her using the same McCall’s pattern (M4728) with which I made my own case. You can see pictures of mine on Flicker here and here.
For some reason, three yards of this Japanese-themed flower fabric was in my stash. I suspect I was thinking about making another Amy Butler kimono and never did. Anyway, some of it has gone towards Donna’s case. I’m really working my way through my stash which tickles me no end.
Last night’s Emma was a welcomed return of Masterpiece’s Jane Austen series after a three-week break. What a great weekend; did you enjoy your weekend as well?
