A special moment

On Saturday amid gale force winds and rain pelting down, this lovely young couple became Mr and Mrs. Our DD2 , who has known the bride since prep ,was a bridesmaid and we were lucky to be invited to the wedding as well. This is at the reception. A wonderful night and it was so nice to have DD2 down from sunny Qld. Yes she froze! Way back when I think I put a photo of the tulip quilt that I made ( Very fluoro pink border) anyway this is the couple who were given that one as a wedding gift.
Congratulations to the happy couple

March Dear Jane

March Dear Jane.... Tick. Not sure about bottom left but in the big scheme of things it will be ok.

 On Friday I went to the AQC at the Exhibition building and yes, spent a lot of money but  everything will be used.  More templates, needles, thread and a slippy mat. I did get a ruler with a 1/4 and 3/8 markings but when I showed it to the friend I was with she gushed... "wish I'd seen those" anyway as she had a birthday yesterday I gave it to her. Now I have to order for myself, one from the Quilting patch in NSW!
A couple of weeks ago we met this young man. DS1's best friends new son. He was given his blue tiny treasures quilt and the other one has gone to Inspirational Quilts charity.
