happy birthday

Wow I can't believe my son is turning 18 today. Seems like just yesterday he was a rolly polly baby, entering the world at 9lbs 4 oz. We thought he would never walk, but finally did at 17months. He is so witty and humourus. I love his smile. He is kind and thoughtful. Writes beautiful mother's day poems:
You're our mother, whom we share
Doing everything and even more.
thanks is something we don't often say,
but this family loves you all the way.
Have a warm and loving Mother's Day.
Isn't that sweet! We are celebrating on Friday night with a surprise party!!! turning 18 here means you are legal to drink. He had a deal with his dad that he wouldn't drink until he was 18 and if held out he would receive $1000. Well we are a little poorer but proud of him. Now we gear up for parties, graduation, jobs, university etc etc. another chapter in life is opening.
p.s. I still have his graduation quilt to start using 20 fat quarters of music/guitar related fabric in blacks, browns, white red, multi coloured guitars
. Can you help me out with a pattern to use?


  1. Have you heard of the Turning Twenty patterns? They use 20 fat quarters and you can whip up a quilt real fast (so I'm told) I just bought the pattern booklet myself last week. I am going to try it on some Bali FQ's
    Have fun

  2. Belated happy birthday to your son! Scary how fast 18 years passes, isn't it, Lee? My oldest son reached this milestone in Jan. and I still can't get my head around it. LOL

    I've have a think over any ideas for a quilt pattern you could use. Those are awesome fabrics you chose for his quilt.


Thanks for stopping to view my blog. Please leave me a comment and tell me what you think of my projects.
