A sweet photo of Mom and one of the many great grandchildren who were at her party. There were over 50 of us therefor the party. What a time we had. It is always such a joy for me to see and visit with my many brothers and sisters and their families. I just can't believe that I didn't get photos of any of them, guess too much fun for photos. I was able to deliver my blue and white quilt to my brother. I had owed it to him for quite some time, as he sent many boxes of books to my South african library. He loved it. But who doesnt' love quilts??? I now have requests from several other members of the family....they will be completed in time, remember I do have 14 brothers and sisters! I have to admit that this quilt has been in progress for over a year...so a UFO finished and delivered. Now...many of you are avid fans of quiltville.com, I do love Bonnie's quilts. .... and she suggests shopping thrift stores for men's shirts to do scrappy quilts, but whilst visiting the local goodwill....what did I spy...something many of you may not have found at your Goodwill???? An Amish buggy!!!!! I had to get this photo.... always fun seeing them around. Guess they were looking for some bargains too! Last but not least my adorable neice, the lovely Miss M, who wasn't feeling well...and I played cards with her and did a puzzle or two just to pass the time. I think I enjoyed it more than she did. She loves crafts, I think she could become a quilter very easily!!!What a sweety pie.
I couldn't reveal where I was off to last week, but flew up to surprise my mother for her birthday. I wish I could have had a photo of her much surprised face when I walked into the dining room carrying birthday cake. I am so glad no one spilled the beans that I was coming. I flew through Chicago..which kind of prepared me for all the snow on the ground still in Pennsylvania.I had to get a photo.... or two since I haven't seen any up close this winter.... yet.
