Today has been about this:
The top picture is a selection of fabric that I've pulled from my stash to make a baby boy strip quilt!
My friend gave birth to a boy last night (quite unexpectedly, she'd been told at 2 scans that he was a she!) and in doing so sent my well made plans right up the swanny! I'd bought a great Cloud 9 fabric girl quilt kit from Saints and Pinners which I was going to sew up this week, instead I've hit the stash and am now awaiting some coordianting solids that will hopefully pull the whole quilt together! It will of course be a fun and scrappy quilt in shades of blue, green and grey.
The second picture shows some Fairy Tale blocks that I've been whizzing up to make my neice a lap quilt. We'll be going to visit during half term at the end of this month and I'll be taking the quilt with me.
I've also personalised and filled my newly made hoop bag and yesterday I did a little cross stitch:
I pulled my back really badly on Saturday night and so yesterday I was immobile! I spent much of the day in bed stitching and sleeping, oh and tweeting and reading! To be honest I'm only mobile ish today thanks to the power of mega pain killers!
The cross-stitch is a Wee Wonderfuls pattern and is of four superheroes, I plan to make it the centre piece of a cushion for 'Master M's' bedroom.
