Welcome to my blog about my quilting journey! I started quilting in 2006 with a quilt of my own design which started as a cushion cover and ended up as a single bed sized quilt! Now I'm totally hooked....maybe obsessed is a better word for it.

18 years ago...

A quick, non-quilty related post today to wish my baby boy (oh he's going to hate that!) a very Happy 18th Birthday! 

Its been an interesting 18 years, starting with a very loud (and when I say loud I mean ear ringing, rock concert level LOUD - I'm not exaggerating here people) 9lb 5oz bundle of sleepless nights, through his spectacular daredevil lumps and bumps filled, non-speaking early years to now!  Now he's around 6ft 2in tall, doing Year 12 and is an apprentice chef with a great sense of humour and lots of potential for awesomeness (takes after his Mum there - running joke!).

He's not a party lover so tonight the four of us are off out to dinner at a Greek restaurant for delicious Mediterranean goodies.

So happy birthday Simon.  Love you always Monster!

love from Mum,


  1. Hope he has a wonderful birthday! And well done Mum on getting to 18 with your sanity (mostly?!) still intact! :)

  2. Happy Birthday to your boy!! My oldest is 18 too. How fun to have an apprentice chef in the family!! I hope one of my kids takes an interest in cooking so they can takeover some of the duties!! :)


Thank you for visiting my blog today. I'd love to hear any comments you'd like to make!
