Happy Easter

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Sunday, we certainly did with all the family here for afternoon tea and dinner.
The two little ones loved checking out the garden to see if the Easter Bunny had also been to visit Oma's( that's me) house.
Yes he did, just lovely to see their little eyes light up.

We have had some wonderful news that our daughter is expecting baby number three in November, well it is to arrive on the 11.11.11, how is that for a date?
I am in to numbers........

The other thing that happened today was that we had a snake in our garden, well under the patio coming down from the roof "not happy Jan", yes I know it was only about a meter long and a Green Tree Snake, but it was a Snake......

I have always said to my husband that the day I see a Snake in my Garden we are moving in to a Unit, everyone thought it was funny, but to be honest I am feeling sick about it.
Also I have always looked at the ground wondering if I ever see one and here it was up higher then me.

The grand children watch it crawl along the cutter until it could reach our Lillipilly Tree.

This has really shaken me up.

Enjoy the rest of your long weekend

Kitchen update...

Yes we are getting there, slowly but surely, well when your husband still works full time, also helps the children renovate there is not that much time left to do everything.

We have now got benches ( counter tops ) a cook top, range hood and only have to do the build-in cupboards on the other wall where the fridge is, oh I love how it is turning out.
Mind you we could have had it done quicker, but this way we are saving a large amount of money and I don't mind waiting.

Have a great day. I am now going to do some work.

Sneak peek and customer quilts, plus can you spot my mistake?

First two are customer quilts, the little sampler is the Ladies first quilt.
The tumbler is going to be mine and there are 11 ladies in our group doing this 4 1/2" square exchange over six month, we end up with something like 400 squares.

The last one is a sneak peek........ still working on how many, what setting and so on ( looks like the Bear caught a Fish in my mistake)
DH is putting on the tiles in the kitchen and I love them already.


ps. I hope the humidity and heat are finished soon, I am over it. I tried to talk DH in to buying me a ticket to fly to Germany but he hasn't taken the bait yet.
