What goes on and Happy Easter

I was crafting with these making Easter cards I'm posting them full size if you want them. 
Also my teen friends came back and I had an afternoon of letting them take over the craft room and make whatever they wanted.

Update: As of 4 p.m. Sat 4-7-2012, Anchorage has a new seasonal snowfall record. New snow on Saturday put the seasonal snowfall at 133.6 inches -- a full inch above the record established in 1954-55.
Dinner on Sat. night and a game of Sequence after. Moose burgers were on the menu as my friend who came had gotten a road kill moose. To explain, when a moose gets killed on the road the dept. calls the closest person on the sign up list to come get it. This was at 3:00 AM. You need a truck and a hoist to lift the animal then the means to handle it yourself or take the meat to the butcher shop for processing. 
A friend pointed out this wool and this silk went together. I was looking for something to use as a trim on the wool and on the lining the same. This might work. Want to make myself a jacket out of this.

Happy Easter Nan and Bob! I love reading your posts! Wish I could come over with the teens and craft with you! I have to clean out my crafting area it's a mess. I'll do that tomorrow. That sure is a record snowfall!

We have the "road kill" with deer in our area. It really helps people to stretch their budget. They mix it with hamburger most of the time, do you with Moose?

Anyway that was very cool to spend time with teens. I was blessed too to share time with 2 of them. We didn't do crafty things but had so much fun just "hanging out" and eating with my in-laws - even though they didn't know them. :)

Hello Nan; I am now a follower but I was getting email updates to your fascinating blog. We had heard on the news about Anchorage and the record snowfall. We get rain and more rain. I live in Vancouver BC and would love to visit Alaska one day. I love your blog and your interesting sewing projects. I sew too, but for dolls. Tee hee...

You must have gotten all the snow that no one else did this year! LOL! It's so nice that you have the teens over and I bet they just love it too! I would love to come to your house and craft for the day too!
I love Sequence and I'm not a big game player but I do love that one. I have no one to play it with now but it's a great game!
Love the fabrics...I'm partial to plaids anyway and the lining does go perfectly with it.
I've never had moose meat but glad the animal doesn't go to waste. I'm sure it's healthier for you than corporate farm beef for sure.
