it's a girl!

On Tuesday a new niece arrived for us, we haven't had the chance to meet her yet but I can't wait. They live quite a drive away but I am sure very soon we will be on our way, hopefully after I have finished making this blanket/quilt for her. I'm sort of making it up as I go along, I hope it turns out ok! So far I have cut all the pieces and pinned them together, ready to start hand quilting it tonight. I have used one of my favourite fabrics for the top and I bought some more of the same fleece that I used for the baby booties I made for her a few months ago to be the back. Now I just need to get all my chores out the way so I can start sewing! And also a big thank you to Rose at Autonomous Artisans , for featuring my pincushions in an article she wrote about having a gift drawer. : )

Lovely fabric! I hope you'll post a photo of the finished version. I'm going to be making one for a nephew due in May - also making it up as I go along. I have some fun fabrics. I'll definitely post a photo but probably not til May.

Congratulations Aunty Pic. Everyone loves a baby. One of the girls from work has just left to have her baby and I am in charge of making the pram blanket. I'd better get on with that! Lots of cuddles for the baby.
