I have been in Port Huron, Michigan visiting a friend. This is a view off her deck and we saw lots of these freighters passing by. Far in the distance you can see Canada. We had a great visit, and while there visited the Sew Elegant quilt shop and got the supplies we needed for Twilling!
Here's a close up of my twilling. Not sure I have it right, but I like the look. I hope to teach this stitch to my quilt club in June.
I also finished up the applique on my new grandson,Toby's quilt. My daughter and the kids came by this morning and I gave them the quilt. He looks like he is sitting on the branch with the owl, don't you think? Gotta love that t-shirt he is wearing - guess whoooooooooo bought it for him? I have included a picture of the top half of the label and you can see the backing cloth too. Some of the fabrics in this quilt are from my father's shirts - very special to me and will hopefully be special to Toby since he never got to meet his Great Grandpa.
And I close with one more picture from Port Huron. We saw many beautiful homes like this one.
Thanks for stopping by,
