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".
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).

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.
