Family from Afar & the Start of a Mystery!

We have family visiting this week from Canada, as well as The Hague in the Netherlands.

That means Brookie got her quilt. I gave it to her last night and she was so cute in her response. In her little British accent she told me "I like it" and then proceeded to wrap herself up in it with a big grin on her face! I took that to mean it was a hit!
That family is here also means I'm late on quilt number two but I got a lot of work done on it today. I need to make a run for more Kona Marine but I should be able to finish with everything else. I do need to pick up some batting as well. Then it's just putting it all together. Pictures to follow!!!

I also got my 6 inch block out to the first person on my list for the Mystery Modern Mini Round Robin over at Quilts from My Crayon Box. We all are sending out 6" blocks and members are to add borders to the blocks...7 times over! I can't wait to see how mine ends up.
Sorry for the blurry pic: didn't realize how bad it was til I got it in the computer.
I decided to go with a paper pieced sewing machine that eventually will go on my sewing room wall. It is not perfect but I like it and I can't wait to see what everyone does with it. I plan on adding the needle and thread in the quilting of it when I finally get it back. Ooh, the suspense!!!

Enjoy the visits.

The block is really cute. I'll have to think on it for a bit as to what I'm going to do when it is my turn.

I love that paper pieced sewing machine. Round Robins are fun, once you get used to the idea that someone else is stitching on your 'baby'. Mine came back great!
