My new grandson and his daddy's hands. I love this photo my daughter sent me. They are going to take this photo every year on the baby's birthday. I wonder how long it will take for both hands to be the same size.
Mummy and son's hands.
This week my niece and her partner also welcomed a new baby into their family. This means that my husband and his brother both became grandfathers within less than a week of each other!
More things that make me happy...
A strawberry in the garden in June!! It was delicious!
Two more applique blocks for Noah and Matilda.
and double flower.
To finish the May blocks I have lots of little cherries to make.
The June installment is the patterns for the corner blocks and the borders. I think I will be saving those patterns and get back to Noah and Matilda in July.
Happy mail. :)
Recently I discovered Alison of Cotton Factory on Instagram. I ordered this little bundle of Amy Butler fat quarters. Alison kindly included the 2 patterns too! :) I love that top fabric! (so much so I ordered some more! Lol)
This is a big one!
Lynne of Lily's Quilts had a giveaway on her blog and her Facebook and Instagram pages. The prize is supplied by Brenda of Pink Castle fabrics and is membership of their Cotton and Steel Club.
Each month, for 12 months, I will receive 12 fat quarters from Cotton and Steel's brand new collections. That is 144 fat quarters of delicious fabric!
Flowers in the garden.
We had a very mild May and temperatures continue to be above average in June, so there are some surprising blooms for this time of year.
And last, but not least, all my followers and readers. Thank you!
