Aliens on Flickr

I got up at 5 with my husband - he's flying to Brisbane today. Did some quilting. Now it's 6.30 and I'm back in bed for a bit waiting for my hay fever to subside and enjoying trawling through Flickr. Love these eggsterrestrials!

Mum made me a quilt for my birthday. She used some fabric she'd hand-dyed years ago. On the back it said count the petals to see how old you are. Ben counted petals and butterfly wings and came up with 70!!

Birthday quilt

Here's the back of my birthday quilt. Love, love, love the free-motion quilting round the petals.

Ben's birthday

It was Ben's birthday on Friday. Now that he's 12 he gets to hold the matches and light his own candles! We bought him ice skating lessons, a little guinea pig toy that records your voice and plays it back and an apple slinky contraption that quickly cuts up and cores apples.

Ben's music

Ben made this instrument for physics. He's been so enjoying writing music for it and performing it.

Our crabapple trees by the front door are magnificent! Just a buzz of bees and scent. This year, I'll do crabapple jelly that works - instead of last year's treacly mess!

Lemon trees

We've bought dwarf lemon trees to have in pots by the front door. Ben has promptly named one Belinda and the other one Steve.
