A week of birthdays.

This past week has been, birthdays, sewing, and of course visits with Bonnie and Bella. My son in law Trev had a birthday...not sure how old he was (just old).  We went out for a family dinner.

Trevor, Bella and Bonnie

My baby boy Adam had a birthday this week also, he turned 26. The picture below is from Bonnie and Trev's Wedding reception with some old family friends, and Greg. Adam is centre back. 

I have also managed to bind two quilts that i have had finished for quite a while.
This is a pattern for a snowman alphabet that I bought when Greg and I visited Vancouver a couple of years ago........  Its hand stitched in a varigated thread.  I luuuuuv Snowmen.

This quilt is called Fairyland.  Its hand appliqued.  I sewed all of the appliqued while Greg and I were staying in Melbourne for a few weeks.  I'm pretty sure this will be given to Miss Bella.....hope she'll like it.

The one you gave me, hangs in my sewing room, it is perfection! fairland is adorable. Yes,I agree it has Miss Bella written all over it....
