Of Birthdays and Quilts

I haven't forgotten you all, my friends, but life just got a bit hectic!

Preparing for this.........

trying to finish this
(still not completely finished, will reveal all in post soon when have time)

especially for this Very Special Day

Which is today!

Happy 16th Birthday Bella!!!!

The Birthday Girl has just gone up to London for the day with her friends, then will be coming back late this afternoon and taking the friends to an Italian restaurant for a birthday celebration.

So I have a little time at last for a quick post, then back to hand quilting her birthday quilt.

and then we have serious revision for GCSEs going on and needing support, food, drink, chauffering etc!

So just a quick post today.

Will be back soon with lots of photos of birthdays, quilts, and an update on the garden and seedlings!

Thank you so much for all your lovely comments, I will try to reply and visit you soon!
