Despite the sadness of today there was one highlight that made the day easier to bear. My lovely stepdaughter came up for the day and we had a few hours to enjoy her company.
Don't let the photo fool you, she wasn't in Australia! I am very proud to call this beautiful girl my daughter and I'm probably embarrassing the heck out of her with this post but, what the heck! Sometimes things just have to be said! :-) Thank you L for making today easier.
While I have not been getting much done I have been finding a few minutes every day to hand quilt my Journal Quilt for the Contemporary Quilt Group. No photos yet but I almost have the four required quilts finished in time for the deadline of 31 May. I just have to face all four. I've not faced a quilt before so this will be a new adventure. Fortunately Laura and Linda Kemshall have a video tutorial on their Design Matters site so I hope to be able to make full use of that.
Time I went and stitched a bit more. See you soon and thank you again for all your warm words.
