I have not finished any quilts for a while but I have a few on the go. I'm off on my guild retreat at the weekend so hopefully will get the half pint quiltalong top put together, a few more Dear Jane blocks and another Japanese doll quilt finished.
As there is no photos to show you thought I'd show you where my great great grandfather James McDonald was born. This beautiful little village is Helmsdale in Sutherland northern Scotland. He wasn't the only member of his family to come out to New Zealand his parents and a few of his siblings came out too I'm not too sure when though. Another one of the mysteries in life but guess if I keep delving into records one day I will find what I am looking for.
