I've had a lovely few days catching up with friends and now I have a free diary. Well other than that small to do list.
Item 1: Have a baby.
Since I don't know when that is going to happen, I am pottering around, baking, sewing and blogging.
Now for some show and tell.
This gorgeous quilt was made by my bloggy mate Terry. She made it with specific instructions that it was to be used and abused by Baby CP, especially for lolling about on the floor and I have no doubt it will be.
The quilt is hanging on the bassinet that Mr CP used as a baby. It was obviously made fairly well as Mr CP is one of TEN and they all used it at one time or another (we probably won't use it in the foot well of the car to transport Baby like they did...). The next generation has given it a good go too. Mr CP's cousin made the stand for it and I think it'll come in handy.
On Saturday I finally got to meet Ms Wendy, one of the most talented ladies in craft.
She made me a gorgeous and fabulously large pincushion. It's so cool.
I bought these two wonderful pictures from her (painted by her equally talented husband). The fox and owl has special meanings for Mr CP and I so I thought they were perfect for the nursery.
I've finally got to do some of the things on my list for Baby CP. I bought these iron on transfers quite a while ago so I've jazzed up some plain white jumpsuits as well as some bibs I'd bought from Ikea.
And while I've been sewing today I've had my special helper.
Not every machine comes with one of these attachments.
Every now and then I get swatted to give her a pat or she starts nuzzling the machine and then my hands as I'm guiding fabric through.
Yep, true love and an addiction to scratches.
As for Baby CP...he or she seems happily ensconced in Tummy Town so I will continue to be the Lady in Waiting.
