Orange Crush Step 5, New Fabric, DGD's B'day

I can finally say that I am caught up on the Orange Crush. I am savoring the moment. Now, I can finally join all those who are waiting for step 6. Yeah, me! Here they all are, and they are bright, when I had them up cropping them, it almost hurt my eyes. The fabric with it came today in the mail from Thousands of Bolts. I only ordered it Friday, they shipped it the same day, and it arrived today, can't get any quicker than that. I really like that store, the service and especially the prices. The fabric is for my border, you can't tell from the picture, but the orange floral's background just about matches the little patterns in the orange OC fabric perfectly. My backing is dark brown with sunflowers.
Today is one of my granddaughters birthdays, she turned 17. My daughter took the day off, and she and Tabitha, and two of her brothers went to Sea World. Tabitha loves penguins, and so today, she and my daughter and the boys got to pet three, a king, a rock hopper, and another one they couldn't remember the name for. It was a very exciting day for her. They took pictures, but just with their cell phones, if any came out decently, I will add them later.
Yeah me, and yeah Tabitha.

Well done you! I bought some fabric for the border but I think I may have to change it as it's very bright and the blocks are so bright and the whole thing might not work together. Fancy getting to stroke penguins, how great is that!

Yes, Happy Birthday, Tabitha! Penguins are just gorgeous - I would love to pat one!
Wish I was brave enough to use orange in OC, but am afraid I will be sticking to plain old blue.
Best wishes - Lurline/australia.
