Easter holiday

 DH has had a week offwork for Easter and that has meant that I haven't had much time for sewing.  We have been decorating (the lounge - big job), visiting family and friends, and had a couple of days away.  We went to the North Wales coast and had a lovely time.  The weather has been fresh but sunny and we visited several National Trust properties.  This is the view from the amazing Penrhyn Castle.  How about waking up to that every morning? 

Then we went via Conway (lovely) to Llandudno.  This Victorian resort was looking and feeling very spruced up and upmarket.  We were late finding a hotel, and were lucky enough to have to slum it in the last room they had left at the St George, at a satisfying reduction!  It was actually the bridal suite, had a jacuzzi in the bathroom and a private balcony.  Luxury!

 But now we're safely back home, I've had chance to do a little sewing.  I made four of the stars with made fabric and decided to quit there (all the bias edges made for interesting joins!)  A couple of borders using some leftover blocks and I think that's a good result. 

So what did you get up to over Easter?
