Birthday week.

It was indeed my birthday this week. It was one of those bigees and I have had a really lovely time. We were at the Bee the day after and all the 'girls' really made it special for me.

 Alison had made me a beautiful cake and although we are all watching our weight, of course we indulged,and then there were Ann's chocolate cup cakes which were yum..

My Doti all over Birthday cake.

 Ann also made this little wall hanging. She reckoned it was me going to quilting and now it is hanging in my sewing room.She is right about the saying she embroidered on it . 

 Alison finally finished her button club quilt by Lynette Anderson, and it looks lovely. As you know I am not a pink person, but I sure like how she has used it in this quilt. Several of us have made this quilt and they all look so different.

There was lots of laughter and even a little sewing done. Ann and Maggie were working on this months mystery quilt block (blog post ' In print') which was fun for me to see the different colours and threads they were using. The rest of us were plodding along and I did get another block quilted on my UFO though I guess it's a WIP ( work in progress) now.

This is also a WIP. There were quite a lot of scraps left from the Humming Bird quilt so I have been playing around, and have made 64 blocks. I am now adding appliqué hearts to the centres of some of the blocks and really liking it, possibly it will make a nice baby quilt.

Keep safe and keep stitching.....Doti...
