I have my first commission! To make a quilt for DH’s cousin’s first Grandchild, a little girl! The baby is due at the end of May so I have plenty of time to get organised. Granddad is from Sweden so their only request was to incorporate some fabric from the Moomin range, which their girls grew up with.
I managed to find some on Etsy and have ordered it and when it arrives I am going to take it to the quilt store to match some of the colours! I think I may be doing the pattern above as it lends itself to having the Moomin fabric as the central piece and to make a feature of it. Well that’s the plan at the moment!!!!!
Needless to say I didn’t get anything done in Eldest’s/Quilt Room 😦 nor did I get the quilts basted as I was busy catching up on house jobs and two basket loads of ironing! I am hoping to some things done in the evenings this week.
We had a little flurry of snow on Sunday but not enough for Treacle to play in, and it didn’t last and was gone by the evening!
We took Youngest go-karting for his Birthday before Christmas but unfortunately it was cut short as the track was becoming slippy, so on Friday we took him and seven friends for a return match, especially as they had all finished their mock exams. They had a great evening and Youngest came third in the race they had between them! We ended up at McDonalds for tea, which they all enjoyed too!
I hope your Monday is going well.
Hugs, Susie x
