It has been a week-end of mixed blessings. Steph was ill on Thursday and so we had to end the turkey dinner early. Yesterday, our friends, Pete and Diane from the Sacramento area, came by and we went out to lunch at Papa Haydn, renowned for their desserts. Pete worked for GE, and they lived in Wilmington, NC at the same time we were there. I hadn’t seen them in ages, since I started quilting. Diane was blown away by my quilts. I enjoyed seeing my work through someone else’s eyes.

I have finished piecing and sashing the auction quilt. Tomorrow, I will assemble the blocks and add the borders. Do you think I am capable of matching the seams?

    What beautiful photos!

    I hope Steph feels better.

    Glad you got to visit with old friends.

    Yes, I think you are. 🙂

  2. Of course you can match the seams — when you want to 😉 Looks like you made the most of T-Day, even if it was short.
