I am late in getting at my blog today. I spent the day in Orillia (a city a ninety minutes from here) visiting with my sister and doing some shopping. Helen has come from England to see her son and family (think I told you this yesterday) and to help me celebrate my milestone birthday. We wanted to have some time to chat and so, met for lunch. We had a lovely time talking family stuff and other things. It is always special when you can have some time with a family member and this is especially so when they live so far away.
Helen gave me a nice bundle of English quilting cottons as well as a book with patterns and recipes. I love the fabrics as they really do look English with the delicate colours and flowers. As an extra bonus, they all co ordinate. Helen isn't a quilter but she does paint and do photography so she has an artists eye. I am going to have to use them in a special quilt.
Just a short posting today. I bottled the maple syrup after I got home so still need to do some cleaning before going to bed.
