This is a picture of my sister's beautiful quilt, An Angels Story by Annie Downs (Im pretty sure that is who designed it). It has taken my sister 4 years to stitch every one of those pictures and handquilt and finish it off. My sister finished it at my house Monday afternoon so I took a picture to show you all how wonderful it is. She has done a lot of other projects in between (including my 40th quilt) so I think she has done it in amazing time. I am eager now to see what project is going to be started next. Sorry for the poor photo but I couldnt fit it all in properly.
Now onto the knitting around here (sorry no pics as yet). I have been knitting lots and trying to reduce stress levels (as is the norm for now). I have knitted half of my god-daughter's jacket, half a blanket for a new baby due THIS MONTH (oh my goodness), and half of the Textured Jacket from the Vintage book from the last post. I have to say that those patterns are very addictive and the one I am knitting is quite simple too.
Isabelle had another sleep over last night at her friend's house, so that makes 2 in two weeks which is great considering a few months ago she wouldnt stay anywhere. Unfortunately the little brother of the first sleepover friend had a terrible cough so now Isabelle has caught it. A quick trip to the doctor's and we have 2 different medicines to take. I really am starting to think that I should visit with the naturopath instead of visiting the doctor all the time as my sister goes to one and really benefits from it. Perhaps a visit is on the books soon for the kids and I to see what we can learn. It always happens that on school holidays one of us is sick. Paul seems to miss out on most of the germs as he is away at work so isnt around it all the time. I am hoping she feels better by the weekend so we can do some nice things on the holidays, like perhaps see a movie. I really want to see the Harry Potter movie but it isnt on until the kids are back at school. I am sure Isabelle will want to see the Hannah Montana movie as she loves her music. Okay that is about it, time for some sleep around here and relaxation.
