Last week we spent a few days in Niagara at Terry's sister and her husbands. Got to spend some time with two of my favorite people in the very special granddaughters, Megan and Laura, aren't they gorgeous. Didn't get to see my daughter except fleetingly as she was working and there was a funeral that was very important to her to be available for. Next time the four of us will have some special time together!

Another Finish

Boy, I've been getting things done, good thing as I have a couple trips planned and the next couple of weeks, there may be little or nothing done in the studio!!!This is a quilt I hand pieced last winter, made from Fabric scraps, all different pastel floral pieces!!! I love how it turned out! I had it sitting on the "quilt tops finished" shelf for a long time , so the other night I put it on the frame...and looky looky, it's all done!!!! Like it?? The pattern was free on line from Art Gallery Fabrics, called Shanghai Mod.
My friends stopped by this afternoon, he wanted to take some bird pics, I love these!!! All taken on our deck!
