Today, I am putting the finishing stitches in the pieced pear quilt for my nephew, Tommy. It feels good to be finishing it up today because today is his 1st birthday. This time last year my darling sister was in a labour ward in Boston and I was sitting with my mum in a surgeon's office here in Sydney being told that mum had cancer. It was quite a day.
12 months on we have a lot to celebrate - mum is well and Tommy is totally adorable.
P.S. I'll share some photos of the finished quilt after Tommy has a chance to unwrap it and drag it through something that stains ( my children recommend soy milk).
