Baby No More!

This little cutie .....


turns 18 years of age today!  Wow!  How did that happen!

She is away for the weekend, celebrating with friends. But yesterday we opened her pressies.  Wanna see what I made her?

Log cabin Circles for Shannon Oct13

This quilt is called Log Cabin Circles, made with Amy Butler Soul Blossoms (chosen by Shannon) and beautifully long arm quilted in hearts by my friend Janette.

Shannon's 18th Birthday Quilt Oct13

It's a sizeable quilt at approx. 77" x 77", and one that Shannon wants to take away with her to uni next year.

She also hinted at needing some new pjs, after seeing me making some after FQ retreat in July!

Like the others I've made, these too are made from a charity shop vintage sheet, and she loves them!

I will be spending the day coming to terms with the fact that my beautiful baby is a baby no longer.  I'm so proud of the sensitive and talented woman she has become.   Happy birthday my sweet girl!

  16. Love the quilt and the PJ's. They grow so quickly don't they. I thought I would be devastated when Kurt went to uni in September but anticipating it was worse than the actuality and thank god for Skype!! Wishing her a great day :)

  17. Oh Judith, That is utterly stunning! That'll be handed to your grandchildren and great grandchildren. As for the PJ's they're lovely too.....I've discovered over the years that I can only make flat things, so they'd be beyond my skills! xx

  18. lucky Shannon, happy birthday to her. That's the nice things about a daughter, they like things mum made, and her quilt and pjs are gorgeous. (I ended making a uni quilt as well for Hazel and her schoolfriend and then ultimately for her flat mates after 3 years of asking)
