Happy Birthday Princess

Our gorgeous baby girl is 28 today. What absolute joy she has brought to our lives. Here are some photos of our Princess from 15 hours till her 2nd birthday.

I'm in finishing off mode at the moment - I have a collection of quilt tops and, after buying myself a roll of batting, am making an effort to finish off some of these quilts. Don't get much chance to sew over the weekends lately because the eisteddfod is running until the end of September. Most of last week's free time was spent machine quilting "Mary's Floral Medallion" until I ran out of the thread I was using in the bobbin - couldn't believe I didn't have another spool in the drawer!

Last night and early this morning I quilted "Christmas Belles", a quilt I've been making as a BOM with some stitchy friends. Will sew on the binding tonight and then there'll be a little hand-quilting to do around the "Belles" before it's finished. Which quilt top to layer and baste next? "Everyday Angels", "Sharon's Roses", 2006 Friendship Quilt, Row-by-Row Quilt; the list goes on ...

The days are beautiful - I love spring. Looking forward to Friday - going shopping at Peter's of Kensington and to Bondi with my first baby to buy her birthday presents (she will be 28) and I'll take Mum with us - should be a lovely day out.

Big Weekend

It certainly was - Friday night and Saturday were spent preparing for Sunday - cooking, cleaning etc. I did manage to fit in half hour sewing to finish off machine quilting "Polka Dot Girls" and sew on the binding. Now have a bit of hand-quilting to do before sewing down the binding. Saturday evening John, Jenni and I went to see "Men in Tutus" - it was a very funny show. A couple of the dancers were outstanding. Elizabeth was down for the weekend with Jared, so she met us after the show and we had dinner in a Vietnamese restaurant - lovely food. Jenni had gone to meet a bunch of her friends to have "birthday dinner" with them. Sunday was a busy day - everyone came for lunch and it was lovely sitting out on the verandah. Weather was beautiful, food was good and the best part was having all the family there.

Shame to have to come to work today - could have easily spent the day at home sewing.
