Life is VERY hectic here at Laura's but she finally sat down to open a present or two on her birthday yesterday evening! Here she is enjoying her new quilt from me, the "Lorna Doone" quilt from a kit of Kaffe Fassett fabrics. [The kit was purchased from the Glorious Color website after Kaffe had been in our area, teaching and lecturing!]
3 of her 4 children were here too! (They are not too happy as we are about to go out to dinner and leave them with the sitter!)
The quilt is Queen size and the colors are perfect for our May Day birthday daughter!
It was beautifully and creatively long arm machine quilted by Sonja Koch of Fayetteville, AR!

This is the only quilt I ever made from a kit, and I still had to change out the border and binding! Kaffe's fabrics are SO colorful and beautiful, and with the soft aqua dot they become my preferred palette of light bright pastel colors!
More from Laura's....
We were playing around in her bedroom doing yoga poses and she caught it with her camera.....then she put it on Facebook...not bad for "old folks"!
Little Sophie is a "travel agent in training".....taking over her mother's desk.
Nina is the "artist in training", using a water brush and showing me how to make polka dots!
Then, I had a peaceful moment on the deck, doing my own watercolor sketch of the lake.
This afternoon we get to see our 7 year- old grandson, Bindley, play in a soccer match! Photos to follow, I'm sure!
