Another quilt for Theo!

Another quilt for Theo!
Fiona's gifts for Theo

How many quilts is too many quilts when you are just seven weeks old?! Personally I think it must be a pretty high number, as there’s always somewhere to use them… One for under the play gym, one for over the back of the nursery chair (lovely to run your baby fingers over when you are being burped) one in the pram, another to kick about on in the sewing room (naturally) and a couple of spares for when the others are being washed…

And Theo is an amazingly lucky boy (again) because Fiona, another of our friends whom we lived near in Canada sent us this quilt last week, along with some burp cloths and some gorgeous sewn gifts.

Fiona will probably kill me for mentioning this, but the funniest part of the story is that after hurriedly completing all her sewing and dispatching it to us, she woke up in the middle of the night to realise with absolute horror that she’d forgotten to sew up the bottom of the fabric book pages after she’d turned them in the right way! So a little hand sewing project for mummy too… perfect!

When I consider the multitude of ways in which quilts have become used by our family, I do sometimes wonder what we did before we had them!?

Gorgeous, he really is a lucky boy. Think I would like to learn to sew now, look at all the lovely gifts I could make!

I will admit to feelings of jealousy when seeing all of these lovely creations. My girls only had one playmat between them and a quillow each.
They’ve outgrown them all now sadly….. but fearnot, they may only be aged 6 & 3 but I’ve stashed them away for when they have kids 😉
