Getting It Done...

It's been a busy time getting me Mum and sister settled in their new place.  It's going as well as can be expected.  Some parts of unpacking are more fun than others.  I truly enjoy unpacking the kitchen. Filling the walls with pictures, etc. is also enjoyable. However, going through boxes and trying to decide what one has room for and what must stay packed or gotten rid of (in one manner or another) is not so much fun.  But, we're pushing through it.

In the meantime, I finished this table topper for Mum...

A few years ago, I finished a quilt for my friend, Loretta.  In return, she gifted me with a charm pack and some yardage of Nature's Basket by Blackbird Designs for Moda.  (Thanks, Loretta!)  This table topper is what I did with it.  Finally.  It is perfect for their small table, especially with the ceramic bowl that Julie gave Mum several years ago. 


Here's a photo from Mother's Day...isn't me Mum beautiful?

Hope your weekend is good!

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.". Jeremiah 29:11

Great table topper, too. I love blues and browns together.
I bet it's wonderful having your mum and sister nearby.
