Ma's birthday and some stitching

We have has a quick trip to Sydney over the weekend to celebrate Ma's 80th birthday. We had planned to take Ma and Pa out but poor Pa wasn't well enough so we had a nice lunch together at home on Sunday with some delicious leftovers of Deirdre's and a few bits from the deli up the road. We are having a large celebration in a few weeks but it was nice to be with her on the day. We had a few little gifts for her too. Here she is opening Janelle and Rick's gift. She loved the gift, Janelle!
Paddy sent Ma a gift too and Ma loved it too.
She had knitted Ma a gorgeous scarf.
Ma had received some lovely flowers too.

It is a rainy day here today so it is nice to stay in and write my blog and hopefully get a bit of stitching done. I didn't get around to showing the lovely stitching from last week at the shop so here it is. Coralee has been so busy and has stitched the lovely bag from the stitching day...
and has made the runner too!
Barb showed off her lovely quilt she has finished.
Judy is our hexagon specialist and has been working on another large quilt. All those hexagons are amazing!
Paddy made a lovely pencil case as a gift. The fabrics work so well.
Karen has also finished her Post office from the My Town BOM and it looks great.

Lovely birthday memories there, Sylvia. I love all the projects you show on your blog....I would like to make a pencil case like the one pictured, with some japanese linen fabrics I bought at the fair....can you put me onto a pattern? Are you planning loads of sewing time during these school hols??? I'm trying to get in there......
