One of those last minute things.

 You know how it feels when you've been making steady progress on a gift for months.... then time is nearly up, and you know you have to somehow finish the gift in time.

 Oh yes. All the blocks are made, but can I get the ends all sewn in and tucked away? Oh my.

 I am very happy to report that indeed The Lion Sleeps Tonight. The little woollen blanket of many colours is complete, and I just loooove the colours. There is a lot of depth in this little project.

Fairy Godmothering

Finished just in time for Fairy Godmothering - this is the Flower Fairy quilt made for my sweet niece Savannah. She was born on 12.12.12 - exactly as predicted. I was in the city on the day of her birth and was there hours after she came into this world. 
I used this twinkly green flower fairy fabric that I had kept for my own little girl - and I can't be wrong. She is definitely mine.

Here, Savannah models the Christening dress I wore 37 years ago, while investigating the quilt made especially for her.

Green is the colour of the heart chakra. There is much love for you here Savvy. xoxo. I love you.
