Its nearly Valentines Day...

...not that that means much in our household! I think that after SW being with me for nearly 28 years has been time enough to not worry about Feb 14th!!! LOL

Anyways.....since my last blog, we celebrated my cousin-in-laws 40th Birthday with her and her family. Really nice afternoon.We also celebrated my brothers birthday by dining out with all the family...once again a nice time was had by all. (The one to the left of the front is the birthday boy!) Because he (Ray) is a bit of a handy man and is kept busy around the house - I managed to find some "Mr Fixit" fabric - some with a cream background and some with a brown background. Did not manage to get all the quilt in on this picture (will have to visit to re photograph). This was the front and the back was in the darker browns. I decided to make it into a Quillow - brother was very happy with the effort!As some of you know, I go to a Craft Group on a Thursdays - we have been doing a Friendship Grandmothers Flower Garden. There was no pressure at all on the women to do or finish their quilts - of the ladies was rather miffed (in a nice way!) that her quilt had not appeared on this blog here it is SHEILA!!!! in all its 'nearly finished' glory :)))
Only another 20 blocks of flowers to attach and a million borders! So anyways.....a couple more of the FGFG quilts were finished in the last few here is Margaret's one.This one is Mary's - she is happy about the finished product even though she may not look it!Jean has been doing some wool embroidery on a baby blanket.The end of the week was in celebration once again - we had called into a friends to find their friend was having a birthday - which of course we had to help celebrate!
