Long lost family

Two aunts and and an uncle stopped by for a quick visit on their way through Bathurst today, bringing me this little quilting gift. The aunts are two of the younger sisters of my dad. He passed away almost 25 years ago.
We've been wanting to get together for ages as we share a love for quilting and crafts, but live too far away.
It was lovely to see them! It just makes me want to plan a trip!

What a lovely gift but even betterwas connecting with family after a long absence. I am sure you will think of them every time you use it.
