Pram Quilt

is finally finished, and I am really proud of it. For my first scrappy quilt I think that it has turned out ok.

I have also done a burp cloth with the left over scrappy squares that I had left over, which is also quilted. The burp cloth is not for sale. It is mine!!!! For the new baby.

Most of the fabric has come from my lovely step Gran Vi. A couple of the strips are Bob the Builder and Thomas the Tank Engine which had for Baby H. As I am doing a quilt for him.

I have finally got the pictures onto the Mac. I have also made a bib and burp cloth to match the bag.

There are three pockets on the outside of the bag. A large one on the front, an elasticated on on the right side and a flapped pocket on the left side.

Let me know what you think. I am quite proud of it.

I know, I know…

it’s been a while, but my grandad sadly died. The funeral was last wednesday, so I haven’t been working on much. Not really felt like it. It was really great seeing my aunty and uncles, and all my cousins. The thing is they only ever get together when theres a funeral. The last time I saw two of my uncles was at my gran’s funeral and that was 18 or 19 years ago…

I did get to meet one of my grandad’s brothers though, which was nice. First time. Baby H wanted to play in the funeral place and the crem, so my lovely hubby kept taking him outside to play, so he missed most of it. Don’t think he’s to bothered, but that left me on my own. He finally got to meet my wacky family afterwards, though, and everybody seemed to like him, which I’m glad about.

I have been working on a nappy/daiper bag and it is finally finished, but I am now having probs getting the pics on the mac. Will keep trying.

Now for some good news…

I’m pregnant. Yippee.
