Presents

These are the lovely presents I received from Fiona for my birthday from our on-line group.  They are all beautifully made and follow this year's theme "Grow, Cook, Eat".


These beautiful flowers arrived yesterday from dear Diann.


Yesterday was a lovely day - so many phone calls and messages.  Pictures with Mum in the afternoon then we went out for dinner with Mum, Jenni and some friends to a Thai restaurant.  I received so many beautiful presents and we had a great time.  We're going to Sydney for Mother's Day, so I'll see Elizabeth and Matt and the Newlyweds then.

I made young Wil's birthday present on Wednesday after spending most of the day/night in the sewing room (had to go out to buy more fibrefill and visited Mum).


"Giddy Up" designed by Melly & Me

This is the fourth "Giddy Up" that I've made and I'm saving the rest of the cowboy teddy fabric - one day I might need it ...

One of the members of our Tuesday night stitching group is a young girl (well, she's 22 so a young girl to us) and she's just finished her second quilt - this is for her Mum for Mother's Day.


She made it following the design of the zig zag quilt I made a couple of months ago and she used 3 charm packs of Fig Tree's "California Girl" and 3 charm packs of Moda Bella Solid in White.  The quilt is wonderful.  She ditch-stitching the coloured zig zags and stipple quilted the white background fabric.  Her first quilt was made for her Nanna for this Mother's Day - I'll try to get a photo from Kerryn of this quilt.

Another beautiful day on the South Coast - might make a couple of the Stepping Stones blocks today to see how they look.  The whole quilt is made of only two block designs.
