Easter in Mongolia

We had a wonderful Easter--with 60 F above 0 weather!! I wore my party padabouts sans pantyhose :) I made two of these Martha Stewart Mandarin Orange Upsidedown Cakes--one for the Easter dinner we celebrated with friends (the hosts supplied a real USDA ham! Heaven :) and one for our church fellowship that evening. I was able to sew my Easter duds together at the last minute, the skirt went together in about an hour on Saturday and the top on Sunday. Nothing like last minute, but the fact that I had any time at all was a huge surprise/gift to me. The fabric was from a 3-piece Sari package I got at a local store. There were two 3-meter lengths of a cotton/silk blend (skirt) and then another 2 meters of a silk scarf--that's what I made the vest out of. The biggest blessings of all are that He is risen!!! and calls to family of course.
