I have just had 2 child free days! For the first and only time my kids are on the same School camp program. They are down near the coast somewhere hopefully wrapped up warm in their sleeping bags and quilts and I have managed to slot some sewing into the minutes I would normally spend with them. So we are close to a finish on my niece's birthday quilt. it needs to be done by Saturday so i am almost ahead of schedule and may not need to spend friday night sewing until Midnight-there's a change!
I will take a nice photo of it for you when it is quilted, the light tonight doesn't do the Barefoot Roses collection justice. I am not sure this would be how I would make this for me, but it is how my sister liked it laid out. I would be very tempted to liven up the blocks with a hot pink appliqued daisy, but instead i just appliqued that on the next one...
I thought my DN's dolls may need a matching quilt, here it is before I stitched her name on. It is being modelled by my old Ted. I was a teddy girl, my girl was a dummy(pacifier!) and blanket girl and my boy was a dummy ....and his mother.... boy for comfort!! Funny how we all have our thing.
The "lamb stash" has grown to 4. - a new baby may be easier than up to 6 lamb feeds a day!
I think the numbers will stay at least that high as well. They were fairly weak and took some getting back to life so i have missed the window for fostering them on a new mother.
Here is the original, all green bow and glowing good health-look how he stands on 2 legs to convince me to feed him!
I went around the ewes late this afternoon and watched the last of these babies being born...someone is going to have to be very patient at waiting for their turn! I have tried the equation in many ways but 3 lambs into 2 teats just wont compute!
Have a great day, Tracey
