The Non-Sewer

My older sister tells me she can't really sew. When the post arrived this morning ...imagine my delight at just what non-sewing can magic up? These two beautiful quilts are her gifts to Arlo and Tavish for their first birthdays. I would love to see what she could produce should she ever actually learn to sew. Today this humble sister turns 40... Happy Birthday, Mim! The cheesy cards always say 'Life Begins at 40' and I reckon there are adventures just waiting to be had. Glad you got there before me - you can test out the theory xxx

She can sew like a bastard! Happy birthday to her!

They are awesome! And those perfectly butting corners - pretty good for someone who can't sew.

Happy 40th to Mim.

Wow! They are fabulous! Lovely gift idea too :) I've seen 40 and the main thing it about it was... well, a bit of a let down actually! ;) Happy birthday to your sister! Kx

Can't sew!?
What would she produce if she could ?

Talented that forty year old sibling. I've decided I love forty. Hardly worth all the preliminary angst, I reckon. Not sure how I'll feel about forty five...

She's been hiding her light under a bushel I'm thinking.

Love it! I'm sure the boys will too. ♥

That sister of yours, what a rubbish sewer. And now forty as well? Shame.
