A Mistake

Sara laid out her Undergrown Railroad quilt for us to sandwich and everyone loved it.  Well, to our surprise the backing was too short.  Ok, no problem.  After a few adjustments, we will try again.  Nothing gets us down.

Mazel Tov

Mazel Tov to Hinda.  Her daughter is getting married next week.  These pictures are from the engagement party.  The young man's family is from Yemen so they dressed in traditional Temani clothing for the party.  It was so interesting and so much fun.  What an adorable couple.  We all wish them well.

Do You Like Buttons?

If you do, go over to "A Sentimental Quilter" and see a very interesting article by Kathleen Tracy about String Buttons.  It's on her Saturday, August 4th blog.  Anyone that can't through away buttons (like me) will enjoy reading this.

Busy, Busy, Busy

We have all been very busy, but not with quilting.  It's vacation time here in Israel.  Everyone is going away or receiving guests, so there is little time for quilting.  I'm busy too with grandmotherly things to do.  I did start a new quilt for my oldest grandson and I can show you what I have done so far.  This is the pattern from
