Easter Past and Winner!

I can't believe how fast the months go by lately, I never seem to have enough time to do what I had planned, so maybe I need to plan for holidays a year in advance, lol.

First I will announce the winner of the giveaway. Thank you for all of your ideas. I like the idea of wonky blocks, and fussy cutting too, I think I should be able to get at least 3 quilts with the material, so I can try different ones. The winner is lucky number 2, Lynn. Please email me with your choice of pattern from my ecrater site.

I was going through old photos in my san disk and found some Easter photos of my family and this one definitely goes on the worst dresses list;) These were from old slides, so I will have to go through them again, someday and do some work on them, so I can keep them for my kids.


Then I was looking at this one. I remembering thinking how proud we were to get out new Easter dresses, a big thing in our house and I always loved black. I am in the middle and my sister Candy on my left, our friend Beverly in the black sweater.


Then, for the first time, I realized something, my dress is the same one, as the one my sister Wendy is wearing in this photo, so much for me getting a new dress, lol. My mother was always altering things for us and being the youngest, I got all the hand me downs. You can see the dress pattern coming from under my sister's coat.

Those pictures are just great!! I remember dressing up like that on Easter too with the hats - I think that I even had gloves. My kids think that I looked very odd! But the pictures are just priceless!

Congrats to Lynn! Oh what great pics - I love looking at old pics, I don't think we have any of Easter at our house. But I do remember being able to go shopping for a new dress every year - I think it was the only time I wore one, lol!

I have a couple of those 'classic' Easter photos, too. I remember the dresses being SO itchy. I was just never a girly girl *s*

Love the pictures. You are giving me ideas of getting my mum's photo albums in order to scan them. Precious. Funny how we no longer dress up for holidays. I too remember having a special outfit for Easter. I also had 4 coats, one for each season. Now, people seem to wear whatever, even shorts in the middle of winter along with with sandals. Thanks for sharing your memories! Hugs!
