40th Birthday!


I haven't been able to post much lately due to computer issues, but I still continue to quilt! I thought I would post a picture of my sweet husband on his 40th cutting the cake! Can I tell you too that he ate most of this cake in only two days! We didn't do much, but I cooked him his favorite beef bourginon and after we cut the cake we played Canasta with his mum and he won, so he was happy to gloat about that for a while. Actually, we were planning to go away for a camping trip over our birthdays, but farm commitments have delayed that so I hope we will still get to go soon. It's a never ending battle with the drought around here!

Also, I have finished my Climbing Jacob's Ladder quilt minus the borders. I so wish I had about a half yard of that turquoise fabric to use in the border, but I can't find it anywhere. I might be able to make a stash batik work--it will really need a pop of color once I put the wider border on. Still searching for the right fabric...

I am currently working on my scrappy dots again and hope to post another picture soon...

I think a border of the orange with the darker brown (? hard to tell with my monitor) framing it as well...very lovely and happy birthday to the husband!

That quilt is stunning - really stunning. Obviously the quilt police ladies were wrong with their lack of contrast comments. That's the first thing I noticed was the wonderful contrast in the quilt. GREAT job.

Happy birthday hubby!
Your quilt looks fantastic. The colours are really warm looking. Definately a quilt for snuggling under during winter!

The quilt looks lovely, so does the husband and the cake! I like the Kaffe spots one too in the repro spots - I've just had that Kaffe book out of the library.
