Hello lovely deskers, hope you're all keeping well and happy! It's a cherished day for me and the family too, all will be revealed later!

I finished the latest quilt:

and got the binding spot on this time - the last quilt involved unpicking and bad language!

Ta Daa:

Pretty colours huh? I really like this and may hang onto it!

LynneCrafts sent me some DK yarn via her hubby Brian who stayed with us last week:

They are in the basket ready to be used Lynne and tone really well with the colours already on the go - You must have used your Spidey Senses when you picked those out for me *hug*

On the desk are the leftover strips from the quilts (not that many) and a little fabric purchase which I couldn't resist.

Doggy items sell well down the cafe and I thought this was fun:

Called Furry Friends, it's by Makower and is a lovely fabric, really good quality. I can see a pink spotty lining possibly though you could use a few colours with it.

But may I present to you one of my greatest creations from 30 years ago?

Yep, my eldest Owen is 30 today! He's staying with us and we have plans for today so forgive me if I'm late commenting! Where has that time gone....

In the blink of an eye that's what! I'm blessed with my sons, both kind and thoughtful men of whom I'm very proud!

Happy Birthday Owen, hope you enjoy today and I apologise now for some of the presents, lolol!!!

30! It’s as if they snuck in the last 15 years without us noticing! Huge happy returns to Owen, it’s no wonder you’re proud of them, they are lovely nice kind and fun young men. I could squash him in a hug and he wouldn’t fight me off, he’s too polite! Hope you have a lovely day today, and a great break all together. Xxxx

Happy birthday Owie! They’re really good pictures of you both and I love the one of you when he was a baby. You and G have done so well, bringing up such lovely gentlemen. I hope you have a really lovely day.
Your quilt is beautiful and I’m glad the binding behaved.

Take care and happy WOYWW

Your quilt is lovely, a definite keeper. It’s hard to connect the baby picture with the adult sometimes. They are babies for such a short time, I can’t believe my son is 40 something this year! Happy Easter and happy WOYWW. Angela #13

Happy Birthday Owen! What a handsome guy! He was a very cute baby too! Congratulations on finishing your quilt, it looks awesome! And I do like the doggy fabric as well, it would look great with pink inside! Or green...I hope you have a lovely Easter weekend, Lindart #20

Happy WOYWW. So much to catch up on. Will have to spend some time every day, scrolling through blogs and seeing what you have all been up to in my absence. Happy Birthday, Owen. Hope you had a lovely day with him today - and you haven't had the rain that has been soaking Pembrokeshire all day. Sunshine forecast by Derek for tomorrow and all through the weekend - I have a bike ride planned for tomorrow, lunch with a friend on Friday and a trip to St Davids on Saturday (to collect my food order from a local producers' collective). Sunshine makes everything seem better. Will definitely have to arrange that much-delayed trip to see you both. I have a different electric car now, with a lower range (only upto about 100 miles on warmer days) so may need to steal some of your solar power! I also have a folding electric bike, so can bring that with me to go and explore around Burry Port. Ali x #11
