HAPPY EASTER!

We have been having Easter school break for a week now and until today it has been very calm as my DS was away with the local youth group.
I managed to finish some projects and started some new ones!

This is my Thermal jumper. The part I like most about it (apart from the fit) is that the yarn cost me only 8 Euro ( about 10$) at a local clearance shop.
I sewed the top of a challenge my mother talked me into. We were given a small piece of the brown dot fabric and had to make something related to nine and/or eggs (in french neuf and oeuf sound quite alike). I picked the nine theme and sewed some nine patch of different sizes, the smallest being 3x3 cm, that´s 1x1 cm (3/8 x 3/8) for a square. The top measures 40x40 cm (16"x16").

Now I am waiting for some inspiration to get it quilted. Maybe something eggy (it is Easter after all!)
Anyway I wish you all an happy Easter with your family.

It looks like spring has finally made it there! I see some flowers peeking out from behind your new sweater.

Your little quilt is so pretty and colorful! I agree that you should quilt it with egg shapes so that it will be both a Neuf ET ouef quilt.
