A Quilt a Day

Gets a great big smile from grand daughter Awen.



Snuggled under a quillow made for her Great Grandmother in 1991. The pattern is broken dishes. Awen found the label (embroidered with names and dates).  Why we should label our quilts. Not for us but to keep the history.

The day progressed with a sewing lesson on the machine. We made a pre-printed softie no-pics.
Lunch and a trip to the driving range with Grampa. no-pics,  WELL you can't spend all the time behind the camera.

Evening activity.  Fishing with grampa in the Nepean river.



2 Mullet and 3 Bream were the catch. all under size but lots of fun.


The same big smile at the end of the day.

Grandparents delight. We all got to share things we enjoy with another generation.  Woo Hoo.  Terry
