Weekend and Quilt Updates

What a great weekend I had! My oldest daughter (Erin), hubby (Aaron) and granddaughter (Ginny) came to visit. They haven't been here for a couple of years and it was wonderful to have them again.

Laura and Alissa spent the weekend too, so that they could maximize time spent together.

Alissa loves her little cousin, Ginny, as is evident in this picture.

And Ginny loves Alissa too!


On the sewing front, I've been plodding away at quilting my bird quilt. I've also been working on the crow wall hanging (no pic this time). I've had to set my bird quilt aside because I've got to get my mom's Christmas present together and it's going to take a while!

My bird quilt looks quite messy from the batting pilling up. I'm having to man-handle the quilt a lot trying to quilt it.
I decided to follow the swirl designs in each block as the quilting and it's taken forever, as they are difficult to see once under the needle.



I've got more to share, but need to get to the Garden Market to help Gail set up her Christmas displays. Plus, it will be another busy week with job searching and another interview.

I hope you all have a great day!

TTFN....
