ANOTHER QUILT TOP DONE....................

Last night I finished this quilt top.  It will be a belated
21st Birthday gift for our daughter.  I did start it before
her birthday.

I bought the fabric a couple of years ago from
Linda White at Gumvalley Patchwork --
It is a nice feeling to have used up some more
fabric, but not so nice feeling to be adding another
quilt to the pile of quilts to be quilted.
Guess what I will be doing for a few months.

The pattern will be available once the quilt is finished.

This copy of Inspiring Country Threads arrived in the
mail today.............

It has my "Grandma Vera's Satchel" in it.

Should be on your newsagent shelf this week.

I wish.......... no just joking.  Since Christmas I have been
very busy, that is why I haven't blogged for the whole
month of January.

Once Christmas was over, I made over 100 of these
invitations for my daughter's 21st Birthday Party, which was
on Saturday night.  I have to say, we had a blast, it was such
a good party, and the 1.00 a.m. time finish meant nothing,
we were still going at 4.00 a.m.

Once I got all the invites out, it was then time to concentrate
on the food to feed the guests.  They must have enjoyed
 these party pies -- not many left.

Then it was time for the cake.  Gillian wanted a
Dolly Varden Cake, just like she had when
she turned 3.  The dolly is the same dolly that was
in her cake then.  She is rather cute isn't she.

There were some gorgous shoes at the party.  These were
a pair of my favourites.  The cream ones you can just see
in the background are rather gorgeous too!

All in all, everyone had a great night, and I think yesterday
was the day that it all caught up with me.  I was a little tired.

I promise I will be back more regularly now.  I have lots of photos
to show you.
