Hi everyone, glad you could visit me.

Monday again. Where does the time fly. I was very happy with what I got accomplished today. I worked at hand quilting this morning on the black and white quilt. It is coming along nicely. So much easier than the last quilt I quilted.
I actually got out to the flower garden after my walk this afternoon. I am making a goal to spend at least an hour a day out there and try to find some order in it. It got so neglected last summer after pulling my shoulder out. It is still cool but things are starting to grow.
After supper I did some more machine quilting on Lauren's quilt. I must say I am starting to enjoy machine quilting. My sewing machine works nicely. I am practising feathers which are coming along nicely. See:

I am trying a few different things on this quilt. Lauren didn't mind. The swirls do need more practise but I think I can get the hand of it. I was very happy with the block and how it is looking. I still have the outside boarder but decided to sew the binding on first to keep it in place. I must say it is a lot quicker than hand quilting. I have only worked on it a few hours for three days. Should finish it tomorrow.
I need to go and help my mother do some more packing tomorrow for awhile. Then I will load up the car to drop off on Thursday when we go to town. We are off to Fredericton this weekend for ARD. It is our Tops Rally. There are five ladies going this year and we always have fun. Then the next weekend is the big move. Hopefully the weather is good and we get some help. Everyone is always so busy. It shouldn't take long as we have a lot of things there already.
