Shirley's A Hit!

My youngest daughter turned the ripe old age of 12 yesterday!

Bethany's 12th birthday (with Shirley!)

She loved the 'Shirley' cushion and messenger bag - phew!  And enjoyed opening more presents, eating chocolate cake (made by Shannon) and has ear-piercing & roller-blading to look forward to on Saturday!

Bethany has been busy herself making end of term pressies for her besties!

Presents for friends June13

These are scented cushions for the girls' bedrooms, all made with fabric from Bethany's own stash!

And look what arrived for me today!

FQR13 Name Tag From Kathie Drake

This is my name tag for the Fat Quarterly Retreat in London this July.  Kathie made this for me, in my all time favourite colours!  And those hand stitches on the front are teeny tiny!  Thank you Kathie! I will wear it with pride!

I'm dying to show you the name tag I've made for my secret partner, but despite it being posted over a week ago, I still haven't heard yet from the recipient.  Fingers crossed it has arrived safely!

Have a lovely day!
