Aaahhh some sewing

Finally I managed to find a couple of moments to sit in front of Bernie!!

It seems to be baby making time in our peer group. Most of our friends have either just had one (or some), are pregnant or are planning to get pregnant soon. Our dear friends who left New York for opportunities in Hong Kong are just about to have twins! I find one exhausting enough ... two ... at once - well I hang my hat up to anyone who copes with that!

I wanted to send them a little something 'hand made with love'. So in between the baby squeaking I sewed some old scraps together and made two little mini quilts in a carefree Denyse Schmidt esq process.We have used our little super simple baby blanket so much. We use it to put down on the floor for some wriggle or tummy time, out in the car or stroller, wrap her up for a cosy cuddle ... the uses seem to be endless and the ease of washing and tumble drying essential. I hope these two little scrappy quilts are useful too!I obviously wanted to document the little quilts ... but my little model was a little shy and uncooperative. How can something so small wiggle quite so much!!

Ironically, the security tag for this comment is rests - which is something you probably could do with more of!

they are lovely quilts and one adorable baby! My monster is about to become a teenager, how quickly that happened.

She is one gorgeous baby and the quilts look beautiful. Yes I dont know how mums with twins cope either but they must have an awful lot of patience.

Your handmade blanket is so lovely!

I'm loving that blurry photo of your sweetie. Look at that smile! They are non-stop movement. When does it stop? Mine are 6 and 4 and still going.
