Make-A-List Monday

Our Big Announcement!

This has been a blessed Easter weekend for our family.  I am thrilled to be able to announce that my husband, Don, became a full member of our Catholic church at the Easter Vigil service.  

This is a picture of the church before the service.

This is a picture of our family after he was baptized, received first Eucharist and was confirmed.  My DDIL Heather and DGS Ryder were unable to attend because it was too late for Ryder.  My In-laws left at the end of the ceremony so were not available for pictures.  We kept this journey of faith as a surprise to our children.  We told them the news when we went out to dinner before the service.  My husband explained to them that they were his inspiration to become a full member of our church.  We are all so proud of him.

1.  Work on the March block for my paper-pieced heart sampler.

The March block is a cat...I'm not sure why.

The first clue is done.  I can't wait for the May/June issue of Quiltmaker magazine for the next clue.

Binding is done.  The next step is to work on a label.  The shower is next weekend so I will post a picture next Monday if our Internet is working..
