Pincushion No. 2 and 90th birthday celebrations

This is week 2 of sharing my pincushions .... and this is where my needle and thread are placed today ... I made this colourful canvas work pincushion a few years ago and I love it !!!


We had a great weekend up north celebrating my dad's 90th birthday with all the family.  He turned 90 the day after I turned 60 in May but this was the first chance we all had to be together ... and with six children and partners, that isn't always easy ....


Here are my mum and dad with the cake stand which I made .... my dad is a bit of a sweet tooth and loves nothing better than a sponge cake with icing and lollies on it so that was what he got !!!



My dad only has one sister who is younger than him and she came up to celebrate also ....  funnily enough it was her daughter Margot that celebrated her 60th  birthday with me in Italy !!



Not all the grandchildren and great grandchildren could make it but here is a family photo .... if we all got together there would be 46 (and a half) ....



It was Malia's 1st birthday last week and she celebrated with a cake at Day Care .... her birthday party will be next week when her dad is finally home from overseas ..... can't wait for that !!


Jed and Clay had fun doing some painting craft at our place last week ..... Clay chose to paint a wooden crocodile .... very colourful ....


And Jed loved painting this photo frame .... very bright and colourful and then we found photos of Jed, Clay and Lyndie to put inside the frame ..... he gave it to his mum and dad when he got home and they loved it !!


On the way up north we spent the night with Chelsea and Kye and managed to have some sneaky early morning cuddles with Leo before we left ...



After dad's birthday celebrations we visited good friends in Salamander Bay and were visited on the balcony by this very friendly kookaburra looking for some food ....
