A Birthday Gift

I made this fabric basket for a very special lady - my grandmother! She has come up from Sydney to visit with family.

It was Mardie's (grandmother) 92nd birthday on Friday, so I took her out for a special birthday lunch at Flaxton Gardens. It is a very pretty drive along the Blackall Range to Flaxton, and down to the coast (where she is staying at my parent's house).

A photo with some of the great-grandchildren on Sunday.
(Our son is the one in the khaki and black striped top, in the left-hand side of the photo). The children helped her blow out the candles.
Mardie enjoyed her party very much!
