2 whole years already!!
well, my boy was 2 years old last week so we had a party to celebrate. it went on late into the night with much drunkenness and poker playing. after everyone, that was still standing, had had enough we passed out in front of an open fire while our friend john played beautifully on the guitar. this was all after the kids had gone to bed. for the actual party we laid on a fine spread, and stick baked and decorated an amazing cake in the shape of snoopy, there was just one burning question left un answered where had woodstock gone?
franc's gang of friends consist of oli, fin, and cai. it is great watching them play and interact together. i really hope that they remain good buddies. it is easy to imagine them in a few years just like the boys from the film stand by me
fin's mum chloe made franc some brilliant cat and mouse skittles from old fabric remnants, he loves them so much.
and finally, our brother had a baby girl on the 28th of march. i made this small quilt to send out to ireland as her welcome to the world present. it is the first quilt i have ever made and i am rather pleased with it. i have learnt quite a bit from the project and am already looking forward to my next one. I have also made my friend natalie a small gift for her new baby which is due any day now. i wont put any pictures on as she may see, but watch this space. for more pictures of both the party and the quilt check out our flickr account.
