Any one else remember that feeling.....whoa I certainly do as I was overdue with all four of mine.
Seriously I was not a joy to be around, my poor husband was THE MOST patiently abused man ever (I jest of course), but it is a tense time.
So a baby quilt is on the way, I really think handmade gifts are so special & as they are a pretty special family I had to get cracking fairly fast!!!!!!
Don't know the sex so fairly neutral colours in a simple scrappy stripe pattern
I'm not sure whether to add a border or keep it simple, am thinking a light sweet green colour????
Went shopping this morning for wadding & some backing fabric, got a cute light blue gingham, babyish I think, hope to finish it this weekend, I'll post it on Monday hopefully.
She doesn't know about my bloggy space so it'll be safe to post.
I am getting so much use from my scraps, its a lot of fun & real thrifty, a must these days.
Also, I have caught the heart bug over the past week, valentine's just around the corner, & our wedding anniversary, & I have to say I am totally besotted with my sweet guy :)
Here's a peek at the beginning of what I hope will be a lavishly, full of hearts, Feb
Some pretty trims (got more this morning) & an unstuffed work in progress (just remembered I forgot to buy the filling grrrr). I'll just have to wait & fill more next week, cause I am gonna make lots :)
Actually there's a beautiful crochet heart tutorial over at Attis 24, a gorgeous heart made by Lucy & a link for the pattern, absolutely lovely.
Am thinking some of those too.................!!
Other lil hearts at home, might try counting the hearts I have hanging around the house, would be funny to know how many I have obsessively made over the years, I do so love hearts,
Sophie & Bethany were at Lauren's place a few weeks back & decided to count the cupcakes she has collected (cupcakes are her thing) I think they totted up 126 including motifs....cute!!!!!
One last heart, this is the latest heart I received from one of my quilt bee friends, perfect.
I sat & admired it endlessly while sipping tea & munching on some homemade by Sophie cookies YUM!!!!
Ohhhhhhhh just noticed there's a wee heart on the mug too, never spotted that before.....ok nuff about hearts, they are sweet though :) !!!!!
Well my friends I hope you all have a wonderful weekend
thank you so much for dropping by & reading my endless waffle :)
Lots of love Karen xxxxx
