This weekend was a busy one for myself and my husband. On Saturday, we attended his Family reunion and had a great time at that. Lots of good food and wine. My husband enjoyed seeing relatives that he hadn't seen for years. On Sunday, we were invited for Easter dinner at our friends house Paul and Gillian. We had a delicious turkey dinner with all the fixins and pumpkin crumble for desert. (My favorite) We had a great time.
Also, I posted a couple of pictures of a pincushion that Gillian made for me as a gift. She knows that I love pumpkins, so she made this for me. I just love it. You can tell that she put a lot of work into it. I am busy this week painting my sewing room. I'll be putting new flooring down too. Will post pictures of the end result.
