Hello, hello, can anyone hear me, is this thing on??
Probably more to the point is anyone out there after a 2 week break?
Unavoidable, family life called louder than the computer-funerals, lots of sorting out, flu for me, tonsillitis for my girl, a tummy wog for my boy, a DH who needed time and sleep and a birthday party for a dozen 9 year olds. A slightly typical(?) or not, mother's fortnight.
The one slightly good thing about the flu was that it was a bit of a slow recovery so sewing seemed the best choice. A few quick and easy baby quilts to catch up on my present giving.
Love this tractor panel fabric for a little boy farm baby. I think it was from equilter, that or hancocks.
It's joined on the fence by another little chenille and cotton baby quilt. This one is pink John Deere! Perfect for a little girl farm baby.
Here's a closeup, isn't it cute fabric. I bought it at a field day, but have seen it, I think, at equilter.
These are the backs. I just reverse the fronts, so have a white one side, a pink john Deere the other. If people for any reason don't like the shaggy look they could use it this way.
I think this is mostly equilter as well... I like the farm alphabet blocks.
I know everyone likes birthday cake ideas, so here is today's pirate ship effort. The candles were meant to look slightly like a burning deck, the big candle is the cannon, polly pocket was sacrificed as the model who is on the front of the boat, a han solo figure is the pirate and the sail are pictures of the boy, he was happy!
Hope everyone is well, I am hoping to start on the bloglines soon and begin to catch up!
