Birthday treats!

 I was very spoilt for my birthday! Sue gave me this sweet owl, whoooo is now hanging out with some mates on my dresser.

And another lovely surprise from Jenny, our friend from over the pond. She gave me a very pretty and useful gift - an 'owly' umbrella complete with owl and owl poem.

And two pretty cards, too! My cup runneth over.

Thank you ladies, you're so thoughtful. I'm so lucky to have such friends!

Wednesday 22nd May

A cold frosty feeling evening tonight but we were fine inside with the heater on full blast and had a great evening - lovely supper provided by Donna, who was the birthday girl of the week! Wasn't organised enough to get a photo of Donna!
But Tracee is busy (in fact roaring along) on her  Perry's Place quilt - she is doing an amazing job on this quilt - really looking forward to seeing the fences on and the last bits in place.

Woops, you have to stand on your head to look at this chook!! LOL!

Love the pigs
and the sheep and looking forward to the cows!!

Birthday treats!

 This week had a couple of birthdays happening - Tania's and Jenny's!

Jenny was motoring along with her afghan. Don't those colours look scrumptious! The raised flowers give the squares real dimension. Jenny, you'll have to send us a photo when it's finished!
Marg had nearly finished her "Australia" quilt for a friend. She was busily putting on the finishing touches to the quilting, interspersing stars and hearts. It looks so cosy!
 Tania made this adorable pumpkin-crow cushion cover for Jenny. Perfect for Halloween!
 And Tracee made this cute-as-a-button owl for Jenny, to take home and feed in New Zealand!  This little birdie would cheer up anybody!

 And then there was cake......

and more cake.....

and cookies....

and sandwiches....

.... and cup cakes!

And yes, somebody was actually quilting! This is a fabulous hexie-picture quilt from Sue. A road trip quilt....

We all had fun celebrating with old and new friends!

Remember those convict bonnets? Well, looks like they're going places. Here's a link to a story on ABC about them. Do you see yours?
