My Mom's 80th Birthday and the Quilt

                                                Mom's 80th birthday party was a success!  It was fun and lovely. Our neighbors from 40 years ago had great stories and memories. The 3 great grand children (under 4 years old)  made the party lively. One of the little boys loved looking at mom's charm bracelet. She couldn't have been happier.
 My part of the celebration was making a quilt!!!! 
It was my first one and I was sewing the finishing touches all night and morning of the party. It was folded and wrapped before the quest arrived.
  This was the gift from my sisters and I. They hadn't seen it so I was a little nervous about it.
Everyone loved it!
 As soon as some pictures are sent to me I will post them.
It only seems appropriate to post images of women sewing!!! So that is the theme for today.
 Enjoy. Much love, Louise
