Happy 9th birthday my big girl!
We received Meg's half year report yesterday and the first sentence was "Megan has a heightened sense of the ridiculous". I must say I wasn't sure if I should laugh or cry at that comment ... I don't mind admitting that I don't really know what the teacher means but I have come to the conclusion though that it can't be all bad as further on she said that she had a spectacular imagination and she is a pleasure to teach. What more can a Mummy ask for?
I have spent alot of time over the past few days thinking about what I wanted to say about Megan in this post. I have come to the conclusion that I haven't a hope in hell of reflecting what this person means to me. What has struck me though is the enormous impact that she has had on my life. She has been an incredible catalyst for change how amazing that one little person could have totally altered the course of my life. She has brought us all so much happiness, pride and pleasure.
Mind you she has a very strong personality and we tend to meet head-on on a lot of occasions and I swear that she already suffers from PMT ... but really I wouldn't have her any other way! Happy birthday my big little girl I love you more than you could possibly imagine!
I have made a start on my Doll Quilt. I must say that I was pleased when my swap Mama suggested that my partner might like a tree ... so now I have the perfect scapegoat should my partner not like the tree! :)
I am also loving Kaffe Fasset at the moment it cuts up so beautifully. These pictures don't really do anything much for this little quilt. I am sure the sun will come out again sometime soon so that I take a photo out side!
I am using a Floriani product called Wet & Gone to achieve a turned edge to the applique pieces. If it works as well as it claims, it will eliminate the hardness that is left behind when you use a fusible product. I have been using the Appli-Kay Wonder for all of the machine applique that I have done lately. I just love it's self sticking surface as it makes rehearsing applique pieces so very easy when you work I like I do .... with out any real plan :) .
I also spotted this new Michael Miller fabric in one of my new American magazines, isn't it lovely?
I still have at least a million things to do before Meg's party on Saturday so I will go for now.
Have a fabulous weekend! Oh and by the way HOORAY for school holidays!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
