I finished quilting my latest large project - Dawn and Dusk - pattern by Judy Laquidara of Patchwork Times.  Pattern from Quiltmaker magazine - picture to follow.
I also quickly made a tea cosy for my daughter-in-law - of course forgot to take a picture....  I had a yellow/blue print with tea cups and flowers, so I cut a 5-sided shape from that and placed it in the centre of the Insul-bright and cotton batting sandwich, then stitched various yellow and blue print strips, using a stitch and flip technique.  

We had a great visit with everyone for our early summer birthday get-together.  It was a bit damp at times, but we had a nice lunch out, with much talking and laughter.  My newest daughter-in-law brought her older sister along as well, so we had fun catching up on everyone's news.  The birthday boy and his wife had taken the day off work on Friday and toured all the tall ships that had arrived in Toronto.  They had some wonderful pictures of their day, but said they were both exhausted after walking all day in the sun.  I received some cards and a gift for my birthday, but I like to follow tradition, and brought them home to open on "the day".

Check out Judy's blog, Patchwork Times, to see how everyone's stash grew or shrunk this week.
