Happy Easter, Slow Sunday Stitching

Easter Bunny Pink Egg Image

Happy Easter everyone.  My two daughters and their families are due to come over in a couple of hours for Easter Brunch.  

While I'm waiting for the Hot Cross Buns to bake, thought I would show my Slow Sunday Stitching at Kathy's Quilts.

Earlier week, I found myself without prepped applique work, so I was able to finish off this next nursery rhyme redwork block.  Simple Simon.  I don't remember ever hearing the last three verses. 

Simple Simon met a pieman,
Going to the fair;
Says Simple Simon to the pieman,
Let me taste your ware.
Says the pieman to Simple Simon,
Show me first your penny;
Says Simple Simon to the pieman,
Indeed I have not any.
Simple Simon went a-fishing,
For to catch a whale;
All the water he had got,
Was in his mother's pail.
Simple Simon went to look
If plums grew on a thistle;
He pricked his fingers very much,
Which made poor Simon whistle.[1]
He went for water in a sieve
But soon it all fell through
And now poor Simple Simon
Bids you all adieu!

I was able finally to prep this last Flourishes block, and I am busy sewing on the berries or whatever they are.  There were 32 leaves and 42 circles.  

Hope those that celebrate have a wonderful Easter.  

I'll be linking up with Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching
