I'm trying a new idea this year as my "to do list" got out of hand last year, not doing many of the projects listed but adding lots of other items and not entering them on the list at all so I thought that I would do 2 lists.... Started projects for 2009 and the other is Finished projects for 2009, this might be more accurate so it will be interesting to see how it goes, one can only try lol so stay tuned for updates.
Wow I'm nearly finished the Vintage Valentine quilt only 1 block to go, can't wait. I have my fabric for the borders and I've decided to hand quilt so I guess it won't be totally finished for a while yet.
Here is Roberts birthday cake, mudcake with custard filled pastries.... so rich no-one could finish their slice but it was good, very good. The other piccie is of the birthday boy ... Robert and June ( my g/daughter) we had a lamb roast dinner yummo that Gavan made and it was great to have a family dinner, he turned 39 but it doesn' seem that long ago he was just a thought but boy it makes me feel old. We all had a great night.
What a lovely day I had this year for my birthday, it fell on my craft Tuesday so naturally nothing interferes with that off I went and I'm so glad I did. My craft friends had organised a High Tea in the Cafe next door and as you can see in the photos the food was great and the company even better..... Tereasa, Teresa, Laurel, Denise, Leona and my daughter Heather thank you very much girls, loved it, unfortunately I haven't got a photo of all of us. We also had a family birthday tea that evening with lovely pressies and cake, nothing better than family and friends to spend time with.
I'm a Mum to 1 fantastic son and 2 beautiful daughters I'm also Nan to 5 super grandchildren and not forgetting my Hubby...Gavan of 52 years. We have a cute Jack Russell dog "Pippa" who is the boss in our home.
I enjoy lots of crafts but embroidery would be my first love followed closely by quilting, patchwork and the list goes on. I like to have a go at new crafts when I can. We have lived in Jimboomba QLD for 27 years. I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog.
