Oh. .the weather held ..
the hunting was intense. .
the lilac theme made me smile all day.

Remember my lilac project?
Oh. .wow. .dear Heather from Blackberry Rambles. ..
opened up her etsy shop on my behalf to knit me matching little vest sweaters for the grand girls.
She sent them off about the same time the little dresses were finished at my end ..
and then we both waited. .
and waited. .
When it seemed that Easter would come and go without little vests to keep the girlies warm. .
they arrived in the nick of time.
When I opened up the package. .
My eyes fell upon these darling little flowers.
Can you believe how perfectly she was able to match the flowers to the fabric?
It is an identical match.
And. ..one fore me too ..
I just love it.
I am seeing the world through lilac lenses right now. .
and loving it.
from the bottom of my heart. .
thank you for sending just the loveliest parcel.
We . ..me and the grown girlies and little girlies all loved the sweater vests and felted flowers.
I ...did not manage to match the vests to the fabric at my end. .
quite as perfectly as I had hoped.
Heather sent some strands of yarn and I purchased fabric to match. .
but it's all good. .
there is more outfits in my imagination . .
and the summer hasn't even yet begun.
We had a wonderful Easter Sunday as a family. .
and I trust you did as well.
all for now ..
