Easter Braid

Looking for a new Easter recipe?  This braided bread from All Recipes is an easy way to vary your traditional Easter dishes. You don't cook the eggs beforehand, but cook them when you bake the bread!  The eggs can be dyed to make a darling centerpiece.

Tri-Cities Show

Getting ready for a show takes lots of prep, so I get good help from my little granddaughter you see here!  This weekend we are at the Three Rivers Convention Center (7016 Grandridge Blvd.) in Kennewick, WA.  We were here on Friday and will be here all day Saturday from 10-5.  Stop by, local quilters!  We'd love to see you.

Claire Handbags: Finished!

We all had a great time at the Claire Handbags class on Friday.  One session was in the morning and one was in the evening.  Not too bad to leave with a completed project in just a few hours!  They look great, ladies.  See you next time.
