I've been working on making this tee-pee from a free pattern in the Spotlight magazine. Well, actually, the magazine costs $1. Totally worth paying for the pattern. I bought a stack of fabric for $2 per metre and I've had help cutting out the pieces. (For some reason, my huge baby bump wouldn't allow me to get down on the floor to measure and cut the pieces!).
It's started at least. I am trying to work on in while 5yo boy is at school so that he doesn't see it. It's a gift from the baby for him. I bought a second hand fairy mushroom cubby for 4yo girl. They are both indoor cubbies that will give them their own space, and I will be able to make cushions and other accessories next year when the sewing machine comes out again (I think it will be next year).
Hand quilting my baby's quilt in preparation for his/her arrival. It hasn't worked out perfectly, it's not exactly flat. But babies don't notice these things do they?
I quite like the vintage look of the crinkled effect.
Here we are getting ready for the baby shower!!
I've been blessed with a good many useful gifts: clothes, baby bouncer, creams, powders, nappies, breastfeeding cushion, electric breast pump, quilts (I must share photos), and hand made blankets. Everything in gender neutral colours - mostly lemon, mint and white. It's getting exciting. Baby will soon be here.
This blog is a journal of my collected works. Each year I have it printed in hard copy to pass on information to my ancestors in future years. Many old quilts survive today with no information about their maker, or identification of the quilter. Have you labelled your quilts? What is their story?
