She is growing into a gorgeous girl - has her own mind and is definately going to go places!
A very happy birthday to you Maddison and we look forward to celebrating many more to come with you!

another finish and one that Im pretty happy with

Ive just finally finished this quilt - and I must say Im really pleased with how it has turned out.  It was a lot of cutting (and HUGE amount of cutting - although I did cut too much fabric and have heaps left over), lots of sewing and then I stippled it myself on my domestic sewing machine.  I had to piece the back so thought I would use up more of the left over strips to join them together - I think it makes it look like it was meant to be.
And the black and white fabric used in the binding was an afterthought and it think it fits in really well with the brightness and freshness of the quilt.

Wednesday night I did something I never really thought I would do - I got to wear robes and graduated!
Through the National Centre of Dairy Education I have now successfully completed an Advanced Diploma in Agribusiness Management as well as a Diploma in Agriculture.
It was a lot of work - and yes I did get some recognition for prior learning but it was still hard work!
Dont ask what Im going to do with this qualification - its just nice to be finished and a bonus to have a nice night out with my lovely husband Gary at the Moama Bowling Club
