we sewed and sewed

After announcing, without thinking first, that I intended to make some quick quilts for a couple of new babies born in my neck of the woods, and there were only 2 days left to do it in, I had a little unexpected help.

 Zjahlii came to visit..... and brought The Gorgeous Distraction .....and I went opshopping til I dropped on Saturday morning (she could have kept going) ......but I/we managed to get
the quilts done. I was worried I wouldnt. The very quickly done stitching tells the story of how little time we had though. They are only cot size and a little bit offskew but at least they are finished.
The mums were really happy. And Im just a little bit chuffed with myself too.

Poppa tried to help keep her occupied


She seems to like her own unfinished quilt

What did you do over the weekend?

they are two of the most gorgeous quilts I've ever seen. I'm sure the mums were thrilled. And that baby is divine, a gorgeous distraction indeed.

Your granddaughter is SO cute. Totally Love the quilts, and the arrangement of different fabrics. I want to sew some cushions, invite me over for a sewing frenzy.

I'm desperately trying to finish off a Winter sweater for a baby in Geelong. Even MOTH volunteered to do one of the sleeves for me just to get the thing moving. I did decline his offer, as the last time he knitted was in 1958 @ Blackburn Primary School! Your distraction is just gorgeous!
