Birthdays... and a finish....

I was a very naughty girl and forgot to  post about our Easter birthdays .
Gavan had his big 70th on the 16th and Corinne's 20th on the 14th April. We had all the family together, 13 of us and we all had a great time.


Heather and Liz taking care of the B-B-Q and they did a terrific job too.


It was a very relaxing day, lots of laughing and playing table tennis which we haven't done for a long time,..... note to self..... get the other family photos from Heather, another senior moment I think.

                                                         June and her Dad, James.



I have at last finished this quilt.... woohoooo it has been a bit of an ordeal really....  firstly a mistake in the pattern but carried on regardless  then the biggest mistake of all made by me I must admit ..... I had pieced the quilt top and was cutting the border fabric but forgot I was supposed to be fussy cutting arrrrr and then I didn't have enough fabric but I was lucky enough to get some online so all ended up ok in the end ........ so I'm very very happy its done. After all the trouble its been I have decided to call it "Woe is Me" quilt silly I know but I like it.





Of course it wouldn't be finished without a label so

Ta.... dah......


             That makes another OPAM for this month and I can tick it off my "To do list".
