Emma’s Birthday

I’ve been busy the past few weeks making a lap quilt for Emma for her birthday. She came down yesterday & we had a great day.

You may notice a theme here, Emma loves green. Smile

The quilt, it’s lap size, 48” x 60”. I stippled the blocks & hand quilted the circle section using ‘big stitch quilting’ & candlewicking cotton. I’m a convert, love it, much easier than trying to get tiny stitches & I really love the look of it.

I found this pretty border online, added my message & printed it out.
I love quilts with legs!!

Emma's birthday cake

The cake!!! I made it & dh decorated it, pretty spiffy.
Yes Emma loves cats, she doesn’t have one as her partner is allergic.

I’m not sure if Zaphod was guarding the pressies or
thought he was one, lol.

I can't believe you have a 27 yo child, you must have only been a child youself when she was born!!!!!LOL Love the green theme and the cake looks delish!

Thanks Karen, Sweet Pea & Julie. Zaphod needs to watch out he doesn't end up being served for Xmas, that's our turkey platter he loves to sleep on. Julie should I mention my 29yo son? :-) Yes I was a child bride at 19, first baby at 21. How that time has flown!!!
