I received the most wonderful thing in the world yesterday. An unexpected gift for no reason at all:
This is a little quilt that I admire at my friend, Mary B's, house every time I stay with her. There is just something about it that I love. Don't you?
This will give you an idea of how small and sweet it it. Here it is with my little scissors and my thimble.
On Sunday, Rich made his Danish pancakes, aebleskiver, as part of our Easter breakfast. They sort of look like eggs. I tried a new topping for mine this year, fresh squeezed lemon juice and powdered sugar - yum!
It was such a beautiful day, we decided to attend the New York City 5th Avenue Easter Parade. Here's a mad hatter:
A trio of sweet little ladies:
Here is my favorite - the house from the movie "Up" -
Check this one out - wow! You can see St. Patrick's Cathedral in the background. Unfortunately there was a mass and we couldn't fit inside to see the flowers this year. I never will get used to seeing TV screens down the aisle in a church.
We walked over to Rockefeller Center to see the flowers there.
And the skaters in their shorts - how fun!
On the way back to the car we saw this little soap shop called "Rain". All their products are made in Southern Africa. The displays were lovely. It looked like a candy store.
See you soon with an update on the quilting on my "Mother's Garden" quilt. I hope you are enjoying lovely weather where you are and pretty spring flowers!
