Pre-Birthday Celebration

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.
