While I had the grandchildren for the school holidays I didn't get to work on the draught horse quilt because I dont want Brendan to see it before his birthday.
During that time I made a quilt for my friend Bianca for her birthday on Wednesday and also for a thankyou for painting the horses for me
I had the nine patches left over from a previous project
Anthony had his birthday during the holidays and his cowboy quilt was a big hit
He loved it so I was happy
Today I have to clean the house Not much housework got done while the kids were here
Hopefully I will get some time to get out into the garden today as well
It looks like being a nice day
