I have a little news to sneak in between the FAL tutorials


There are a few things for me to tell you so I am sneaking this tiny post in between the FAL tutorial series. 

First, I got to be a part of that quilt, Circle of Friends, an amazing quilting project for Cindy and Brian who are very special friends, with contributions from more of my friends from 4 continents and many countries. You can read about it at Susan's blog Canadian Abroad here

Susan was so busy writing about everyone else that she forgot to mention how wonder she was to organize, quilt, embroider, bind and post this special project. She is the best and I am so proud to be her friend.

Next, the second set of baby robins were hatching as we returned today. They are in the "alien" stage. I will document and post more pictures as the mommy robin allows. This time I get to be here instead of imposing on my photo correspondents.

The eldest son's wedding was wonderful, not a glitch or a hiccup. Thank you all for your well wishes. The ceremony was at this spot, which is high on Mount Lady MacDonald overlooking Canmore, Alberta and beautiful Mount Rundle. Despite flood damage and no drinkable water, the folks of Canmore  were happy to have us all arrive and they made sure that we all had the best time.

We are all home now, tired and heading to sleep soon. Tomorrow there is work and laundry and more FAL tutorials too. Oh and I hope to finally, finally get in some actual sewing too.

Happy Canada Day!

Best,

Leanne

Fab quilt for Cindy, and glad the wedding went off well :o) (I was about to say without a hitch, but that didn't seem entirely appropriate - tee hee :oD )

What a beautiful setting for you son and his bride, it's wonderful that everything worked out. While getting my son's wedding going last year they called for rain every day and we had an outdoor reception planned. It ended up being a gorgeous day and all things fell into place - we are both lucky!
I like that sweet quilt, and especially the back.
