A Couple of Finishes

I sewed the 16-patch top together yesterday.  I really like how it turned out.  I know it is August 1st, but I am counting this top as a finish for July.  Now I still have to quilt it.  Wonder how long that will take me.

Another finish is the home stay with our Japanese students.  We took them to the school this morning, with all their suitcases.  They will take a bus to Bark Lake, where they will spend the next 5 days or so doing all kinds of Canadian outdoor activities, like swimming, canoeing, rope climbing and archery.  It was a very emotional goodbye.  The girls were sad to leave, but I know they will love camp once they get there.  I know I would!  I am sitting down because I think I have overdone things a bit lately.  Too much walking.

The bus was all ready to go, but the girls did not want to leave yet.  There were lots of tears and promises to return one day.  These were a terrific group of girls.  It was such fun to have them stay with us.

Gorgeous!! It will be fun to finish. How sad to say farewell to your visitors, but perhaps you've forged a lasting friendship or two and in the meantime, look at the opportunity your gave them.

Your 16 patches are great! The girls are sure to have fun with all those activities, though I'm sure they will miss you too.
