My Nan is a lovely quilter but is now finding it hard to sit at the machine for long periods of time. She is also a bit partial to knitting and for Christmas I bought her this book. It was a hit!
Apparently there is a girl bear on its way soon for my youngest cherub...will have to share that one with you too.

They are not the most glamorous looking quilt tops, but am glad I could get something out of what I had on hand. It seems I have a lot more florals than boys prints. Must do something about that!
I was determined last night for a bit of progress on the quilts. I was so pleased to at least get them sandwiched together.
An all-nighter was definitely not on the agenda, so I took myself off to bed for some good rest. A panadol to dull the pain from a couple of troublesome teeth, that don't seem to be getting better on their own, and all was good.
here a couple of weeks ago. They have been a real hit with the kids....even for the non-banana eater!
I like to have some home baked goodies in the kids lunchboxes and have been improving on achieving that this year.
I ended up arriving home from work later than I had hoped so my 'sandwiched' baby quilts are still sitting on the machine ready for some action.
So there has been a small amount of sewing progress here, but some is better than none at all. I am reminded to have a little perseverance.....
Will report back shortly, hopefully with the finished products!
(and yes, I am going to the dentist - so glad for the cancellation in tomorrow's appointments)
