The beach is beautiful and the water warm enough for me to enjoy......that's warm!
I had a great visit with the Haliburton Highlands Quilt Guild where I presented my trunk show lecture one afternoon and taught Colour for Quilters the following day. I was spoiled rotten by Lindy and Barry who kindly allowed me to stay in their lovely home. They have the most wonderful Bulldog named "Spike" that I became quite attached to in my short stay.

My Juki TL-98Q that I use for both piecing and machine quilting needs a new foot control so my machine quilting pile remains undone. The part had to be ordered from Miami so it could take awhile to get here. In the meantime I'm working on the Juki F600 that I normally just use for decorative stitches, machine applique etc. I've been piecing a quilt on it and it is just fine but not as fast as I'm used to!
My Mom had her 86th birthday on July 23rd. Mom suffers from Alzheimer's and lives in a nursing home in London. We took her out for lunch at her favourite restaurant where she had her favourite meal. She doesn't always know who we are, but she's quite happy to go for a ride in the car.
This is a photo that my cousin took of Mom holding my cousin's dog.
|Happy Birthday, Mom!|

Enjoy the rest of your summer!
