He is Risen

He is Risen indeed. Okay, I'm a day late with Easter, but I'm sure that the disciples didn't stop celebrating the original Easter on Monday. I started these peices yesterday morning while the kids were being the Easter Bunny and delivering fresh eggs to our neighbors -- an hour of quiet while they visited and watched TV next door. I was then able to finish them off this morning while the kids played they were at the beach (never mind that it was actually frozen outside!). I cheated somewhat, since I used fabrics that I alread painted and quilted. You can't expect me to work that fast. I started with the cross piece, but had to add the emply tomb. Each piece is approximately 8" x 10".

Hi Nikki!
Great recent work! Love the cards especially and the Collage Mania piece. Your Easter celebration in stitch is simply wonderful...to the point and meaningful. Thanks too for your kind words on my blog and in my email. They mean the world to me!

I think this is a wonderful variation on some of your recent work. I hope you keep this for yourself; meaningful Easter decorations are hard to find.
