Bugs and Minibeasts

Several of you mentioned that your daughter and sisters were your best friends also. I have three! and they are all special best friends…. Number three, Miss Tilly, has been studying Minibeasts all year in Grade two and we are currently working on a class quilt with the subject of minibeasts – I’ll show you photos of that later…


so it was not surprising when she decided she wanted a ‘bug’ party for her birthday next week. Not a pink party, or a princess party or even a Disney party – but a BUG party…

mmm, so thinking cap on and first step was the invitations…

I had designed several bugs for the Life is Beautiful quilt and for the fabric line (many of which didn't make the final cut) so I had lots of graphics done… with much input (sometimes not very useful) from Miss Tilly the invites were done and handed out proudly..

That was the easy bit - Now I have four days to come up with the rest of the party!!! argghh ideas anyone..?
