A Basket for Baby

The hand quilting of my Trade Winds quilt continues.  It's taking a while, but these things can't be rushed.  So apart from that, there is not much sewing news to report.

But there have been a few other 'makes' of a different kind, including this basket of gifts that my friend Suzy and I put together for our friend Emma's baby shower.

We decided on a 'mum to be' theme and the basket was filled with treats such as bubble bath, chocolate, eye gel, moisturiser, bath bubbles and a craft magazine.  As if there will be time to read the magazine once the baby comes!  Oh and she has a nearly 3 year old too, so I think making things will be on the back burner for a while!

In other news, my daughter has to complete a page of a scrapbook for preschool every weekend.  And it was my job to help (ok, do) the front cover.

And the back cover too.

It's just as well I covered it in stiky back plastic.  Because I stupidly put it on the roof of the car in the school car park and drove off.  After 2 hours I realised and thought it was going to be lost forever.  Panic ensued and following a frantic return to the school, someone had very kindly rescued it and put it in my daughters's tray.  Some of the empty pages had tire marks on them - it had clearly been driven over, but thankfully it was nothing too serious.  Phew!!  Lesson learnt - never put anything on the roof of the car, not even for a minute!!

  2. Oh wow, Sarah. That cover is too darling. Those pictures of your little girl are adorable.
    I had to chuckle at you - leaving it on the roof! now that sounds like something I would do.

  3. That is something I would do. I would be lucky to remember it on the same day. Thanks for sharing that little story.


Please do leave a comment - I would love to hear from you!
