My sweet sister, Betty, is home in Nova Scotia, for a visit. She lives in Doha, Qatar, with her hubby. They left Canada almost 20 years ago and have lived in several different countries. It is far too hot to stay there for most of the year so she spends time between Calgary, where her three grown sons live, and Halifax/Prospect, NS, where she grew up. She is four years younger than me and we are very close. She has been quilting for a while and tries to join a guild wherever she ends up living.. She finds making decisions on her quilts very difficult so she usually brings home her quilty dilemmas to me to help her with. This time, she brought home two UFOs that have been languishing. I helped her decide on fabrics for borders and backing etc and also helped with trimming up her tops to get ready to add borders. Got the borders sewn on and they are now ready to machine quilt. We hope to get them basted and a start on the quilting tomorrow.
