Hope Everyone Had a Nice Mother's Day

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day! I did. My husband and I went to our daughter Jennifer's for a cookout, (picture of Jenna and Sy, our 2 year old grandson on the left. We were blessed with three of our five children there, and the rest of their families! It was wonderful! We then left Jennifer's and visited our other daughter and her family! We will see our youngest (son) tomorrow! This is the first time ever I will have seen all the kids on Mother's Day or around it! I feel very lucky and blessed. We all had a wonderful time.
I finally finished our daughter Kate's quilt top! It is 84x93. It was just too big for my husband to hold up to get the entire quilt in the picture! But you can see how I bordered it! Now I have to layer and pin, then quilt it! I am looking forward to it. I have no idea what to do for quilting..maybe circles in the squares, or something funky, or just stippling..I am using the red as a backing so I need to pick threads too. I will definitely use red in the bobbin so my mistakes won't show!!
I mentioned in a previous post I went to the Hannah Dustin Quilt Guild Show! I won a basket, Pamper Yourself! I entered some raffles and was pleasantly surprised when I received a phone call to pick up my fantastic prize! Many thanks to the Guild members, they put on a wonderful show and I was so fortunate to win such a nice prize!!

Happy belated Mother's Day . . . it's fun when you get to stretch the celebration out just a little bit longer *s*
