Hello again, and I'm still wearing my quilting hat. Another staff member is off on Maternity leave. I can tell you - I'm staying well clear of the water in the office.
Kim is having a baby girl later this month, so it seemed appropriate to make her a quilt to remember the Kiwis by when she heads back to Germany - even for her visits.
I made this at the recent retreat at Vaughan Park. 4 days sewing - no meals or housework. Not all of the time was spent on this quilt though.
|I love to back the baby quilts with flannel for a warm cosy night's sleep or a snuggle in front of the TV.|
Kim was just checking the size of the New born baby socks with the size of her baby. The socks are available from my website helenhoriginals.co.nz , and they are handknitted from yarn (80% wool) from stashable.co.nz
This was all pretty predictable fun for me, because I have been quilting for the past 30 something years. But watch this space for something right out of my comfort zone when I show you the results of a class with the very lovely and zanny Louise Gardiner. Check out her blog site from here http://www.lougardiner.co.uk/
Until next time, I'm off to keep those little fingers busy at the sewing machine, or maybe some beading. But there is some embroidery I would like to do. And that glass is still sitting downstairs waiting for some attention.
