Children, children and a tablecloth!


How do you like dem apples?
My kids love them! These were from my Nan's tree.


I've continued working on my daughter's quilt, I'm up to four rows so only 2 more, then I need to make binding!





Some of the fabric was given to me by my American cousin (if you're reading I love you and thank you!!). I like mixing the modern prints and the more traditional florals together :) Very girly and cute.


I also made a small taggy blanket for my friend's baby boy featuring fabric by Riley Blake Designs on the front:




and a different lovely soft flannel on the back:




I used this tutorial by Melissa Sews. It was super easy! It also made me realise I might need to start collecting ribbons so I have more of a choice :)


At the weekend my Nan gave me this beautiful tablecloth that she hand embroidered! Lucky me :) Now I have to find somewhere for it to live where grubby hands can't reach it!







Finally, is it weird that I prefer to have to sew with my moccasins on?!

  2. You are so lucky to have inherited that tablecloth from your Grandmother!!
    We used to live in a house that had three apple trees out our back door and I loved this time of year with the fresh apples.
    p.s. I answered your question in the comment section of my blog post :)

  6. Wow that tablecloth is amazing! Lots of work and love went into that! I don't think it's too weird that you prefer to sew in your moccasins, I always sew in my slippers. :)

  7. I have to sew barefoot (or, at most, in socks). I feel like I can't feel/grip the pedal properly otherwise! :)
