I’m not sure if this really counts as a post for Work In Progress Wednesday, as it’s actually very much about finished work… but anyway, it’s Wednesday, so I shall jump on the bandwagon!
I have finally completed the playmat which I made to go under Theo’s baby gym, it’s taken me the best part of 10 days just to do the binding, but I guess that’s life with a 4 week old!
As those of you reading in the UK will now, we had unseasonably warm weather today – even amazingly in Scotland! So whilst the boy was resting in the Silver Cross, I took the quilt outside to try and photograph it in the daylight.
And finally a word about that play gym! When I posted a photo of the quilt in progress, my wise old (but not really old) friend Gill pointed out that the baby would need quite long arms to reach the toys on my nice wooden play gym. It actually turns out there was a far bigger problem, because as nice as that wooden gym was, it was just dull!
Despite the fact mummy likes wooden toys, Theo is a traitor to my cause! He stubbornly refused to be entertained by the wooden gym, but when it was replaced by an obscenely expensive, hideously plastic one with flashing lights and calipso music, he loved it! <sigh> So now the play mat quilt is going to be spending time under a slightly different play gym to the one I envisaged…
Another lesson learned by the amateur parent! Don’t forget more quilts to see by clicking the link below!
