Sunshine on a Cloudy Day

I finished the binding on Gwen’s quilt. I will miss it when I send it off tomorrow. I have enjoyed the sunniness of this as I worked on it. Here is a detail with one of the silly suns that I quilted.

I am so late in getting packages sent. Lisa arrives tomorrow and I hope to get every thing packed up and in the mail and then enjoy the rest of the week with family fun.

Yesterday was Mia’s 12th birthday. I can’t believe that she is a tween, now.

We went out for sushi and then back to Steph’s for cake. Here is Mia blowing out the candles on the ice cream cake.

And here is Miles, enjoying the whole event.

Trinity Cathedral has a pretty big and active outreach program, providing meals to the homeless and low income folks around the church. Each year, they make fancy cookies, box them up and sell them to help fund their work. We bought 3 boxes, one for us, one for our neighbors and one for M & M’s family. Don’t they look tasty?

    Oh yes, those cookies look yummy. Happy Birthday to Mia! She is looking so grown up these days. 🙂 My tween has surpassed me in height! I love those “silly” suns on Gwen’s quilt — they fit the mood of the quilt so well. I hope it brings a smile to her face.

    As I said before, Mia is becoming a beautiful young lady and Miles is so cute. I have a hard time wrapping my brain around the fact that Mia is a tween. Gwen’s quilt is so fun. I love the bright, sunny colors and your quilted suns. Give Lisa a big hug and have fun!
