Andrew's 24th Birthday

I've gone a little funny with the before and after photos, 
maybe this is a sign of old age! 
IF your youngest child being 24 isn't enough of a sign!

Andrews party in 1990 - Andrew is on the orange chair
Andrews party 2011

Notice the same table and chairs, 
We ditched the orange ones, 
used them in the shed for years though.
  and what are those furry things under the table
waiting for dropped morsels?!

For those that haven't already seen it - 
I thought I would share with you 
the card I made for Andrew for his birthday.

I know its already gone a touch viral on facebook!

Above is the Birthday Boy NOW,

(things don't change that much really!)

Until next time ... Kim

I Spy Quilt - Progress Report

21 blocks yet to go!!

I am really pleased with this quilt - I love the orange red shades of the stars and the scrappy cream background.

I had a small problem with the spot fabric ... Its pattern seems to be printed on a wonky bias all of its own because there was no way I could centre the dots in my perfectly square template! Oh well, it doesn't really matter and will add character...

What can you spy?

Until next time....Kim

Progress Report - 'I Remember You'

A quick update!

I have finished the top and just need to put my backing together so it can go off to be quilted.

Woo Hoo!

Until next time ...Kim
