Birthday Parties

Last Saturday, July 7th, was my mother-in-laws 90th birthday. Sixteen of us gathered together to celebrate with a birthday lunch in Melbourne. It was a very enjoyable day, lots of laughter and funny family stories. It was a great chance to catch up with those we don't see regularly.

July 5th is our middle daughters birthday so we had a double celebration.

July and August are busy birthday times in our family, with six birthdays in as many weeks. Next month both my second sister and my brother's wife will be celebrating their 50th birthdays. Yesterday I decided to give my SIL a quilt (she pointed out recently that I'd given nearly everyone else one and she didn't have one!).

With this in mind I went and had a look at my WIPs (works in progress) and found the perfect top. It is blue & cream, embroidered teapots & cups and the blocks are set in attic windows. I've sandwiched it, and started quilt. I'll post a picture or two when I get a chance to take some.

The embroidered blocks are from an internet swap I was in a couple of years ago.

Happy birthday to one and all. I've done many crafts throughout my life, but it is the quilts that my friends and family want. It seems like they all want me to make several!
