A Birthday and some other show and tell.

It’s my grandson’s birthday today and he is 9 years old. How special is it to be 9?

Bailey

**Happy Birthday Bailey**

Lots of hugs and kisses for you :)I love you lots and lots.

My DH and I went shopping the other day and bought me a new camera. Wooo hoooo!

canon-eos-550d

I love this camera and hope to have lots of wonderful photos to show everyone soon. Actually I took some photos and they turned out to be 12Gb each! Blimey..amazing.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have done two more blocks from P. S. i Quilts block tutorial.

These are number 6 and 7 blocks. So just one more to go.

Block 6 Block 7

I am also doing blocks from a group sewing from the Craft Forum and this is the block for the month of June. I am doing it in the same fabrics as the P. S. i Quilt ones as I am going to put them all together instead of doing double of the P. S. i Quilt blocks.

June Block

the pattern for this block can be found at The Quilters Cache – I love this site.

I am still sewing the Wedding quilt for my son and am nearly finished all the appliqué. Then its to the quilters …..I will happy about that.

Happy sewing everyone….and its starting to get cold here in Melbourne….

hugs to all…….Vicki

happy birthday to your Grandson! My oldest turned 4 today! I can't belive it's been 4 years already! It must be teh 8th for you y now, but it's the 7th here (and let me tell you I was NOT about to have a 6/6/06 baby!)

Your pinwheels look good too, I keep thinking if I have some time (ha!) IU will go back and make them all too but it might not be for a while
