Our patchwork blanket has become multigenerational now; the wee girl held the edges still while i pinned (despite my best efforts to get it done while she slept there are 400 pins and she doesn't fancy sleep much - not as much as pretty gold pins)
and the big girl has had a go at machine quiliting - she worried a little that she was 'driving' crooked but I assured her it was ok; all part of the fun of learning a new skill. She concentrates very hard so I know just as much love goes into wiggly lines as straight ones.
It is not finished yet - I ran out of thread while I was on a roll - and now it will have to wait because I am doing a very exciting felting workshop this Friday night and Saturday (leaving my wee baby in her daddy's very capable arms for a whole day! I have been expressing like a mad woman...what if she won't drink from a bottle?!..well I guess he will just have to bring her to me, it will all be ok)
I can't wait to post some pictures on Saturday afternoon, I think you will all be very impressed with my workshop creation.
The big girl is back to school next week so maybe I will get the quilt on the bed by next weekend - it feels so lovely all sandwiched together with the cotton batting - like a real quilt already...pity there is still about eleventy million miles of stitching to go!
