Pretty and Bright!

Late today is the day - we may have some idea of how things are going Ed-wise! Thank goodness for the light relief of quilting and Heidi's and Byron's birthdays have come at the right time.

I have two quilts to be bound for them (and another two shaggies to be made!) - of course the above is for Heidi - it is a jelly roll pattern!

Wow! Talk about being on a Quest for Colour - I didn't mean this much - however, Byron loves it - the black and whites are puppies which he loves. I don't have a lot of luck depicting quilts for boys - I think I have succeeded here - I'm sort of glad he will be taking it home and not using it in their bedroom here.
All being well, we are off to see Alice in Wonderland in 3D on Sunday, then taking the kids to Timezone (very foolish, I know, it will blow their little minds!) then a nice lunch at a nearby restaurant.
The adrenalin is running - I would like to throw some magazines out for the rubbish pickup that will happen within the next hour or so - not easy, but I feel I need some orderliness at the moment!
Have a lovely weekend - my goodness it is that time again!
