My favourite xmas quilt think it might have been a row swap in 2002 I just love the colours it brightens up the room.

Happy Birthday

It was Joshuas 14th birthday yesterday. As his father was over in England visiting family a few surprises arrived for Josh. Balloons and a gift box of choccy's and sweets. Bought a smile to his face. Josh was a bit disappointed Bob was not going to be back for his birthday.
The poor dog modelled the balloons too and no she didn't rise to the ceiling which was what josh was checking.

This lovely quilt was made as a group quilt by my quilt group for one of our members 60th birthday.
Her birthday was actually a couple of months ago but sadly on her actual birthday she was in Canada actually at her mums funeral.
So we decided she needed a party and a quilt to cheer he up.
We had a yummy lunch and birthday cake.

I thought I had better show a photo of my Noahs Ark blocks by Lynette Anderson as I have the link to her blocks now on my blog. It took me quite a while to sort out to load the link. Yes I am a bit slow.
I had stitiched all the blocks just hadn't added the little borders.
They look really cute.

I have actually finished one of my many UFO's this isn'too old I started it last year don't know why I had to start it I think I had just had lessons on making a New York beauty quilt and was really keen. Luckily all the fabric has come from my stash and it used most of the brights I had.
I will be giving it to the baby next door who is' now about 6 months old and no baby quilt from me. Thought if I didn't give him a quilt soon he will be a teenager.
