Bob rang from Melbourne and said he was coming for a couple of days, Norman said he would come up from Christchurch while Bob was here and Alan was coming to spend time with us after Christmas so we have all three brothers here at the moment.
When Bob said he was coming I suggested a visit to go and see our sister Barbara as she has had her home renovated and I thought he might like to see the changes.
One sister to go, Wendy, and it just so happens that Wendy can make it with husband, John to join all of us for the day at Barbara's tomorrow. We are very much looking forward to the gathering.
Barbara's husband, Bryan, is not well and so Linda and I got together and made the quilt photographed to give to him. We shared the piecing and Linda machine quilted it on to coral fleece, so it is light, soft and cuddly.
This quilt design is becoming a favourite of ours. We participated in making one for our friend, Rewa, in red, black and white. I made an autumn tone one for my friend, Cherie and Linda and I also made one for our cousin, Helen for her birthday.
Our thanks to Bonnie Hunter for providing this inspirational quilt design.
