My Mum's 90th Birthday

 My special present for my Special Mum on her 90th Birthday...

  My Mum turned 90 years of age in April this year... We had a very special day with her, to share our love, for a Special lady. I haven't done much stitching since Ray's car accident last September, but I did manage to get a small lap quilt made for my Mum. I worked on the stitchery blocks while bed-side sitting when Ray was in hospital and the numerous hours sitting in waiting rooms at Doctors, X-ray and Physio. I did get it finished and presented it to my Mum on her birthday, she was really happy with it.
I'd like to share some of the photos of the stitchery blocks and a full picture of the quilt it's self... Enjoy!!!

Faye, the quilt is really beautiful. My favourite stitchery is the garden table.
Love the soft colours and I bet your mum is tickled pink to own it.

Lovely Faye
Well worth the effort. Very special sewing times sometimes when someone is ill.
