~Diamonds at Large Delivered......A Family Affair~


Here is the label for my Diamonds at Large Quilt finally delivered to my Brother


What a surprise he received and showed it off as soon as he opened it


We then headed outside and did some posing with it







I hope this quilt will give him some warmth when needed
I put a whole lot of love in it so hopefully it will come out!!!


I had one of those quilts from Homespun magazine and thought I would give it to my Sister Brigita


she was tickled pink!!!


Caught up with my Niece Hailey
Who said our hair can't be the same colour LOL!!!


 My Nephew/Godson Brendan was at home this weekend (mostly)


And I got some cuddles from my cute little Great Nephew Connor as well!!!
A great family weekend!!!
Hope we can all catch up again!!!

Giving a quilt is the best feeling, I'm sure your brother will feel all the love you sewed into it. A great family weekend.
