At the end of 2022, I had a birthday and this time I was given a party by my husband and one of my sons . It wasn't an 0 birthday but made special by the fact, that they organised it all, phoning my friends with invitations, food, cleaning the house (the best present ever!) and getting al things ready. A couple of my friends couldn't make it so I dined out - lunch on one day and coffee on another and a visit to the Japanese garden on another. I don't usually take photos of my food but these pancakes deserved a post on their own. They were delicious. I had a wonderful birthday with my very special friends. Thank you dear husband and No: 2 son!

I bought a Gell plate and have been having fun doing some mono printing. This is my first layered print - quite happy with it & I'm looking forward to playing more.
Also finished this scrap quilt - it's a pattern by Bec Brennan called "It's a Lot" Quilt - really enjoyed making - only complaint - my scraps haven't decreased much at all.
Also finished this scrap quilt. Getting back into sewing again after the flood in February, my areas are getting tidier & I feel like quilting again.

This is mine - my first ever FIRST! I was over the moon. A small piece call "We Will Remember"
Detail - gold thread used to "write" name - the tope of the quilt had the names of conflicts that Australia has been a part of.
We published a calendar with some of the winning quilts included - I got February.
Our theme for this year was Home/House & here are a few of the quilts entered.
This was part of a triptych - the year in Queensland.
Liked this one.
