A Very Special Birthday!




Over the weekend, we enjoyed a lovely family celebration of John Abraham's 85th birthday. John is Matthew's father and he lives at the Epsom Nursing Home two towns away from us. Matthew had three of his five sister's that were able to attend and we all went out to the little Circle Restaurant for cake and coffee. Matthew's older sisters came from Tennessee and Maryland, and John's brother, Fred, flew in from Arizona, so it was really special!
On a quilty note, I have been doing lots of prewashing and hanging cottons on the clothesline in all this good weather but alas, have no pictures. But I did get all 48 quadrants of my Mother's Day grief quilt made and laid them out on the driveway. I wanted to be sure that the apricot colors were nicely distributed and I'm very pleased with how it looks!

Love your color combo and pattern. Apricot is such a pretty color. I hope you are remembering happy times with your mom.
