The church where the show was held was filled with quilts! I donned the white gloves at the door and raced from one glorious quilt to another, taking pictures in quick succession. Unfortunately, because I was wearing gloves, the camera did not respond too well to my touch so the pictures are not as well focused as they should be. My apologies, but I'm hoping that you'll still enjoy the show...
Do these homespun houses look familiar? I made the same quilt and it is now at the LAQ. Hope to pick it up in a few days.
I received a call later in the week saying that I had won the draw prize! I received some gorgeous Christmas fabrics, some fat quarters and thread, a pattern, and a kit for a Christmas wall hanging. I am a lucky girl!
After lunch with Sheila and the girls, I headed to New Brunswick for an extended week of activities for a "Mom, Me and Sisters Three" Birthday Celebration. My mom turned 90 on October 1 so we had an Open House for family and friends and then spent the rest of the week celebrating, sharing memories, and even managed a game of golf, Mom included. She's awesome with her new driver! We laughed, we cried, and we hugged all week long-Mom and her four daughters. I am so fortunate...
We stayed at my sister's cottage in Murray Corner and enjoyed lots of magnificent sun rises, sun sets, and the glorious sounds of waves lapping on the beach.
Or was it the sound of waves crashing on the beach?
Who could resist the charm of my BIL's buoy tree?
And of course, because Baby Sister has a clothesline, we had to fill it with the quilts I made for her over the years. They may be a little faded, but they are very much loved.
I did take my FW with me and managed just a few hours of sewing but wasn't able to keep up with blog reading or commenting. Not enough hours in the day.
Nice to be back and sharing my stories with you. It's a great day for quilting!
