Mothers Day

I hope everyone had a lovely Mother's Day. I know a wonderful day was had here. I had my parents, brothers, sister in-law, grand parents, my cousin and her daughter over for a BBQ lunch. Of course we massively over-catered - being that we had too much food here in the first place, and then everyone brought along more to contribute. Part of what makes a family gathering special right? We all get to eat leftovers for days afterwards :-)

My husband and children gave such nice gifts. Cameron purchased the pincushion at the Mother's Day stall at school - I'm still amazed that he knew just the thing to get me. And they all contributed to the lovely purse set. I may have had a whole lot to do with the purses ... like, I may or may not have chosen it from the catalogue, and actually gone to the store to get it ... and well, you get the idea :-) And even my Mum got in on the act and gave me the little afternoon tea set in the background. Lucky me :-)

So far today I've been quilting on Maureen's quilt - I think I'm around two thirds done. I'll have it finished this evening for sure, and then I hope to get a start on a cot quilt for Jenny. Tomorrow I'm going to start piecing on another of the projects for the Christmas workshop. I found some lovely Christmas fabrics at the shop last week - more little Christmas pictures, these ones have lime green, so I had to choose a lime green coordinate. More later when I have something to share. Have a great day. x o x

What a lovely day! The quilts you've been working on are simply fantastic as well. I'm finally catching up on my blog reading and there is so much eye candy for inspiration!

Your blue ridge must have made your Mom soooo happy. Great job! Love the stripe you used on the inner border.
