and other reunion pictures.
Finally, the owl quilt met it's new owner.
I didn't hear any complaints.
A sign pen and the zodiac list went along so other relatives can sign the back too.
I had a good visit with my younger brother and sisters. Both my sisters are quilters and while one worked on a baby quilt for her newest grandchild, the other helped add quilting to the owl's border.
Four out of six kids made it to Minnesota.
It was fun having this gang together. We missed Ken's gang as he was on fire duty and Norie's remaining in Tokyo.
Maybe in three more years we can make it all together.

Two weeks just flew by.
I got my "book fix" at Powell"s Books.
I finished my book club book and am thinking of a quilt block to make for that one. Meanwhile I finished a second book, "Tallgrass" by Sandra Dallas, recommended by another blogging friend.
The worst of the heat was over when I returned to Tokyo. Construction has begun on the lot across the street. Yesterday was bulldozer work all day and today there is loud vibrations as a machine compacts the dirt and added gravel.
Tomorrow I will attend a craft show with friends.
Then our choir will leave for Tohoku, where we will sing in a service to dedicate one of our sister churches that we have helped restore. Never a dull moment!
