Uncle Rick went to see his new nephew today and so we were lucky enough to get a few more pics.

Yes, the first picture came through today of Caleb with a very, very happy father.
This is certainly a never to be forgotten Valentine's Day Special for this family.
I now have the grand sum of three grandchildren - looking forward to seeing more photos.
Apparently a picture is worth more than a thousand words. No details yet about weight and/or colour of eyes, etc.

This year my son, David, captured an image of Santa at their home in Seattle, WA.
What an amazing Santa we have and how nice it is to have a part in all this goodness.

These lovely gerberas have been placed near our front door to add a touch of colour for visitors.
My sons gave this to me for Christmas when they came to visit in 2007.
It has had a few changes of location but it keeps coming back each year - never fails.
In addition we have been given a number of other plants over the past five years and they have all enhanced our surroundings. We have been very fortunate to be beneficiaries of the gift of flowers.

We have a new cat at our place, at least new to us.
Bailey is about two years old and the youngest cat we have had around in a while.
He has been very timid but gradually getting used to life at our place.
From the photo I think it would have to be said that he must be pretty happy here to be so relaxed.

It was July 2013 when I made this quilt top.
It has been maturing like good wine in a cupboard and now it has been transformed by Linda http://razzledazzlequilter.blogspot.co.nz/ into a lovely quilt top. She also wrote about this quilt on her blog.
One of the good things about the time lapse between completed quilt top and machine quilting is that it feels like you are being reunited with an old friend.
The stars she worked into the border area are so appropriate, and, once again, I felt this was a good opportunity to use Magic Binding.

This week we held our last Sweet Pea meeting for the year.
Linda made a Christmassy centrepiece for our table with chocolates in a crystal bowl surrounded by Dublin Bay roses and angelica.
I made the most of showing off the cake that Debbie made for my birthday (or what was left of it) and managed to get a better photo this time round.
We have had quite a bit of 'secret sister' business going on this year. We all participated in a row by row project - each making rows for the others in themes and colours of the recipients choosing. These are just two of the projects that have come together so far. Haven't even started putting mine together yet.
We have had some great meetings this year and look forward to more to come in the New Year.
