It's been another busy week in Moose Jaw. I should write tomorrow morning but I have to get up about 6am Monday morning to get down the road, so I'm writing this evening. It's midnight in Knoxville now, so maybe it'll say Monday on the blog!
We had a fun few days with relatives coming to my sister's home. The front row is my Mom, her sister and her sister in law. On the top on my left is my sister [who doesn't like to be in pictures] and on my right is my cousin who I hadn't seen since before 1970!!! What a visit we had!!! Talk about reminiscing and just having a good time!!!
The reason for the get together was my aunt, front center of the picture above, had a quilt project she had been stumped by. You take a ton of 2 inch squares of fabric in dark, medium and light tones and arrange them to make a picture. So Aunt Helen came with her project and we spent about 10 hours getting it arranged for her. We had bought a fabric with a grid on it that you could fuse stuff to and we (well, really my sister) got the colors together. I helped mostly cutting squares for her to choose from because the colors that came with the kit didn't have much in dark browns or greens.
Our aunt fused it all after this picture was taken. The long strips of fabric represent tree trunks that we laid there. Eventually she'll add those as well. I'm glad that I"m not the one that will be sewing it all together!! but, it was fun to get it together for her.
Then as we were leaving we saw some deer. A mom and 2 young ones, still spotted. They stayed nearby so we could take pictures of them!
Til next week
with bracketed comments by her baby sister, who still doesn't like to have her picture taken.....
