A birthday and a stitching day

 Last Thursday my little boy turned 13. Here  he is all grown up cutting the birthday cake.
 Now we have 3 teenage boys, Where do the years go?. I am lucky to have such good boys, they get on well with each other most of the time.
 Yesterday my best friend Cathy and I headed off to Hobart for a stitching day with Helen Stubbings and Lynette Anderson, we had a ball. Lynette is just the nicest person, she sat at our table and chatted away and showed us a few new techniques using the glue pen for needleturn applique.
 Helen hosted a wonderful day, she is lovely to.
 Some of Lynettes projects, they are beautiful.
 I love this cushion.
And this quilt is just delightful.

Today is hot again so we are heading off to the beach, I will share more photos with you later, I have to show you the projects we got and my purchases. I took lots of photos.

Have a great day and I hope you find some sewing time.  I'm taking my stitching to the beach.

I ordered my children to stop having birthdays at the end of their teens. They were making me older...

The years fly by and you can hardly believe it. They are such handsome young chaps and no doubt a credit to you and your husband. Lucky you to meet quilting royalty and to see their beautiful projects up close.
