All is revealed ...

Today was the day we presented Maureen with her surprise quilt. It will be her 70th birthday on Saturday, and it was planned that we would present her with a lovely treat to mark the occasion.

Helen, Jenny S, Jenny C, Lyn, Pauline, Roz, Robyn, Wendy and myself all made blocks, Cheryl donated the back and batt, and then as you know I put it all together.

It was a super fun project, and Maureen was very surprised and thrilled.

I named the project 'Among the Evergreens' - actually it has the same name as the table runner I made a little while back. The table runner was a project for the girls in class, but also a ruse so that when the girls were working on the blocks Maureen would think they were working on their runners. In reality they were working on the blocks for her quilt.

Maureen confessed today that she had no idea anything was going on - how fun!

Tonight I am taking the Amy and her friend Bec to dance rehearsals, and it's likely to finish rather late. I don't think there will be much sewing going on today. But there's always tomorrow ...
