Henry and Uncle Toby's Oats + Pets on Quilts

Last week we received a free sample of yummy Uncle Toby's oats + a little packet of oat seeds to grow at home.  As Henry came to stay for a couple of days I saved them for him to plant.  He really enjoyed the experience.
Thank you Uncle Tobys' and Homegrown Oats.
One of my favourite events in blogworld is Pets on Quilts.  
It happens every year over at delightful Lily Pad Quilting. Many thanks to Snoodles (Jacque) for organising it for us.  Last year my lovely friend Christine over at MacDonalds'Patch entered her dear little dog, Molly and she won a prize which was fabulous.
Of course I voted for Molly.  This year I may even enter my own dear pups.
I spent yesterday preparing a couple more pages of my Round the Garden Quilt (designed by wonderful, super talented Wendy Williams) so I can sew it this week.  I'll show you my progress tomorrow but here are a couple of pics of Wendy's sample...no wonder I feel so inspired.

Today is my darling Sammy's birthday - 30 years old today.  We are all going on a big train adventure next weekend to celebrate.

Happy Birthday Sammy, I'm so lucky to have you in my life.  

I just can't resist bunting.  And this mini bunting is particularly cute.

It features a fabric range called Backyard Roses and I think it is really charming.  The designer of this lovely range of fabric designed the bunting for us and you can download the pattern HERE at fabulous Riley Blake Designs.  The Riley Blake BLOG is always a great place to visit.

Hope you have a great start to your week,
