The two littlest grandgirls got these softie dollies in their Easter Baskets.
I was busy stitching them whilst Only Daughter was in labor.
It is good for me to stitch and pray.
I thought about doing a "Remains of the Day" post about our Easter -- showing you pictures of the dirty dishes, the unmade beds of my children who came and went, the many, many chairs still standing around our table that is leafed to its capacity and still covered with the table cloth and candles. Now there are only three of us here at home. It's always this way. They all come in a flurry, and they all leave at the same time. For a little while I feel overwhelmed and overflowing, and the next minute I feel empty. But I'm not empty, really. I'm full. Full of the blessings of family, full of new life, full of knowing that my Redeemer and the Rescuer of my soul lives in me and mine today!
(The dollies are patterns traced from old Ondori books. One pattern can be found here.)
I hope you had a FULL Easter.
