My border

Saw this border on MQS and thought it was great, I can't  really do it free hand so I traced it on golden paper!!!

Fishing today!!!

My bowls for the boat!!  Also my little boats

this is a mussel farm, and here is the boat that works there,
it is a great place to go fishing, but we don't go into the zone,
always outside the warning ballasts

Here are the worms!!they are about a yard long!!!

at port, my patchwork bag never opened!!!

Jean Pierre, our neighbor, we will be going out sailing with him soon, he has a huge metal sail boat!
A little messy right now, but it's the season to get everything in
Ship shape!!!

Pleased how it is coming, I used light gray cotton thread, and it gives a nice look!!!!
Of course it is a Moda!!!

Easter Monday

Had a great day yesterday, hubby and I had a feasting for Easter dinner, I can say that our strawberry Tarte was giant for the two of us,  he did the shopping!!!!
but one thing, strawberry tarte for breakfast isn't that great!!!Didn't want it to go to waste!!!!
Well, I finally had the courage to finish my roses, and they are on the frame.  I am so, so with it, I should have used brown thread, and put a plain backing, but it is done, so here is a picture!!!
By the way, we had a storm this afternoon!!!Looks great.....

My little quilt arrived in the USA yesterday , so now I can show you what I did.
I did three background fills, an another for the border.  I put crystals by swarovski, to make it shine,  the flowers and leaves are dimensional. 
Hope that it fills her dreams, always hard to make something for someone else!!!

A surprise when we arrived this evening!!!

In my mailbox, what a nice surprise,  well, I knew, Rebecca told me that she was sending me some things.
The first magazine I opened I found feathers!!!!!Still have to draw mine out to see if I am doing then correctly!!!
Thank you Rebecca for the surprise, I have some reading and PPP to do  so all for now.

Today another fishing day, but for me......................

When we go out fishing, I do my fishing in my patchwork bag!!!  I do my Wednesday flower, even though it is Saturday, my flower for the week is almost done!!  I won't say that I am way behind either
Look at the water and sky, what a color blue that is, and if you look good in the background, that is where we came from this morning.  Six fish in the basket at 18H.
