I absolutely loved making this quilt for our little fella and he is loving having a snuggle under it before breakfast.
He's getting an old boy now so he gets up in the morning goes for a wander round the garden and then comes back in for another snooze, has his breakfast and then goes for his morning walk with Daddy......and then comes in for yet another snooze and mega snoring session....lol.
We love this little boy to bits.
A bit closer view so that you can see the fabrics....
I was hoping to have enough of the yellow backing to make the binding too but had to settle for black instead.
One pattern has been cut out and I am hoping to start on a little popover dress for Miss Marlowe today. I will have to take some time out and some scrap fabric to practice buttonholes.
I am not good at buttonholes so why did I choose a pattern with ruddy buttonholes on it? Honestly I do wonder at meself sometimes.
It's Wednesday so it's Miss Doodle Day. We did have a very quick visit from her on Sunday when she bought Grandad a present of some black pudding they got at the farm shop. Unfortunately her visit came just as DD had finished applying my hair dye and I looked a right sight.......I still got a kiss though 😍
Tea tonight will be a bit of a mish mash of things that want using up so....cold sliced sausages, chicken strips and a bowl of spinach salad but to avoid being a cruel Ganma....making Ruby eat salad two weeks on the trot...lol.....I will offer tomato soup although there will be enough of what we are having if she wants it.
Just a quick tidy up and a hoover round today and then I'll get sorting out which fabric I am going to play with for the dress....I have quite a few to choose from so it's going to be hard...lol.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
