My Sister

I have been a little awol from the computer for the past few days, I had a lovely visit from my gorgeous sister Rochelle. She lives two states away from me and flew down on Saturday to have a mini holiday with us. On her flight down she took this incredible photo out of her airplane window...what a pic!
We had a fabulous time drinking lots of coffee, walking, talking, eating, drinking coffee, we were lucky to have good Melbourne weather...
A revisit to the Gordon Hill Glassblowers where we admired so many glorious works of glass art...
These pieces are incredible, like licorice allsorts...
Rochelle is turning 40 in April, and it was fun to give her her birthday present while she was with us...
Yes, my Leanne House UFO was for my little sister who had always loved this quilt, I'm so glad I got it finished in time!

Thank you for your visit Rochelle, I'm blessed to have you as my sister!

Hi Cathy, you are really lucky to have a sister. I am an only child so I consider my quilting friends as sisters. The present you gave your sister is beautiful. Cheers Sharron
