Mum is 75 today!!!

I haven't been blogging because I have been making the most of my Mum's visit. It is her 75th birthday today and here is a quick snap I took of her last night. 16 year old Zach was actually in this picture as well and they were posing for me but I know Zach will kill me if I include his pose. We went to a new Italian Restaurant here in Kalgoorlie (Villa Maritana) to celebrate the birthday and Mum wore her scarf which you can see a little of. It really looks great and I am now a convert to the benefits of soluble fabric.

I finished Mum's Birdhouse quilt yesterday (after all these years!) and I must admit I am relieved that it is finally finished. I don't like to leave things unfinished especially when the bulk of the work has been done! So Mum is having to find a space in her case for it.

Tomorrow night I will upload some pictures of my rusted fabric - some worked well and some are pretty ordinary but all will get used in one way or another. I have a much better idea of the sort of things I will need to do to get a specific result next time. Now I'm off to bed.

No mistaking the family resemblance is there?
Hope your mum had a good birthday.
Look forward to seeing your rust fabrics.

I hope you enjoyed the birthday with your mum. Hope you can celebrate mum's birthdays for many times.

Your mum is gorgeous Debbi!! Definitely can see the resemblance between the two of you. So glad you managed to get your quilt done for her, I'm sure she was over the moon with the amount of work you put into it. Big hugs Nat
