I hope you had a wonderful time filled with love and all good things over this special weekend. I was blessed to be able to spend it with my children and husband, and enjoy the early signs of spring, like the robins in my front yard, the cardinals singing away in my backyard, the tiny shoots of hyacinths that I can see trying to climb out of the frozen snow beside my deck, and this cheery bouquet of daffodils on my serving island for Sunday dinner. I had a lot of fun preparing for Easter (once I got the cleaning and grocery shopping out of the way!) and tried a couple of new projects that I am going to share with you today and tomorrow.
I found a 12-pack of white napkins at Target, and used my new sewing machine to embroider green leaves and pink flowers at the bottom of the napkin, and then stencilled a light brown bunny on the napkin to color coordinate with my dinner plates. I think it added a fun touch to the place settings. They weren't as perfect as I had hoped, but I really enjoyed making them.

We had a lovely day, church in the morning with my daughter and her fiance, and then son #1 and his wife came for dinner. Son #3 spent the weekend with his girlfriend's family, but the rest of us were gathered around the table again, and had a wonderful time. I'll have more pictures to share tomorrow, but here's a nice picture of the day.
