Quilts, cakes & crochet

Hi again, I've actually found time to blog....its a miracle.
Roll on the Easter break, morning lie ins, food galore, chocolate
bunnies, eggs, bears, mini eggs, cakes......lots of it!!!!
Four more days YESSSSS!
Anyhoo I managed to sew up the quilt top over the last few days,I actually have to fight 
to get into my lovely sewing room that I waited for years & years & years 
to have....Bethany has spent the last month entrenched there sewing 
costumes for her cosplay conventions....she's real good.
Must show you a few of her creations soon.
So back to the quilt top

  Keeping it simple but I will embroider some flowers 
& a lil message for baby on it.....can't wait to finish & see the 
end result.

Bit of progress on this too.....

I started this last summer & have been real neglectful
Am loving it though & am feeling a renewal of interest in finishing it.
Tiny wee squares can be a little monotonous but I'm determined 
& excited about it....good sign eh!!!

We had a birthday in the house this weekend, Lauren turned
24....I can't believe it ....24?
I should feel old but I don't...must be all the cakes keeping me youthful.

We had a tea party

Twas real tasty & much enjoyed by all.
Will be back again soon
Love you guys
