 Although I haven't been in bloggerland for quite a while I haven't been idle.  My local quilt group make quilts for a nearby residental care facility as well as an aged care facility.  These are four which were made for the aged care folk who really love receiving a quilt.  Most ask how much they have to pay for them!!   

I seem to be having trouble moving my photos around at the moment.  I used to be able to made two lots of two but that doesn't seem to be happening for me at the moment!

My 'Sylvias Bridal Sampler' quilt is finished, except for the borders.  I have had a great deal of difficulty finding just the right fabric.  I did purchase the backing in Alaska when there on a recent cruise and now at last have found a lovely piece that I hope will look great around the borders.  Just have to find time to put it together and I guess that won't happen over the next couple of days as I will be busy hopping around the various blogs entered in the 'Blog Hop Birthday Party'.
