Happy Anniversary – and a blogger’s catch-up

We celebrate our anniversary today, 31 years, so I always like to have my Anniversary Quilt on the bed at this time of the year.  “Hearts of Love”  was made from swap blocks I received from an Internet Valentine’s Day block swap.  I made extra heart blocks, put them all together with star sashing in the corners, just in time for our 25th anniversary.

We had VIP visitors come calling today, Lis and Alan.  Lis is a fellow quilting blogger from England and writes her blog Piece’n’Peace, and are currently enjoying a North Island holiday.  We met them the last time they visited New Zealand several years ago, so it was lovely to catch up with them again.

We showed them through our new house, and then they checked out the new caravan.  We talked about quilts, of course, and travels, and had a lovely time together.  Lis has been quite restrained on her trip and has only purchased a few small stitching related items so far on her travels.  I admired her lovely bag which she had made with beach themed fabrics.

What a super clever way of reminding one's spouse of a special date! Congratulations!

Thank you - we weren't so old and grey back on the big day!
And of course we had many a ribald comment that the honeymoon "went off with a bang"!
