Flying Storks*



A small, sweet, girl-flavoured bundle arrived in the wee hours yesterday. This means I have just watched another deadline whizz by, because the week before, another two small, sweet, girl-flavoured bundles together made their first appearance into the big wide world. In fact, bundles are due to keep arriving thick and fast. Consider yourself forewarned over stork-like flying objects.

I’m yet to settle on a crafted welcome for Isabella and Beatrix but I started Heidi’s not long after I walked into Amitié after a few scraps of loveliness and lo! departed with the ingredients for my first ever (beginner) quilt. The quilty top is finished and the sewing in straight lines, well, straightforward. Apparently, the next step is basting. I’ll be on to that just as soon as I can confirm it has nothing to do with roasting turkey.

* The two Mums concerned should be credited for their somewhat involved part in all this baby delivery milarkey.

Those storks are flying low around here at the moment too. I'm having lots of requests for baby pressies for friends of friends... mainly of the pink variety!

You do realise that , once started , it's addictive ? Quilting , I mean . Babies are nice too but there's a limit to how many one can cram into the average house . On the other hand , a stash can grow .... and GROW .

I am so excited to find another beginner! Are you really? I have ade a queen size quilt (took me 25 years-ha!), and a twin size quilt with crazy mom quilt along, and then a baby strip quilt. I am not good at all but hope that this will give me experience. I am making an Annie doll! Don't ask me why. I joined a swap hoping I can do it. It is easy so far. I love it.

Heidi is a lucky little one, that chicken-esque fabric looks awesome! (Do you have a poultry obsession or something going on here?!!) Can't wait to see the first quilt. No doubt you'll be a natural, with your designer's eye...

Ooo...scrumptious fabrics. Can't wait to see what they turn into!
