Caught on the hop...

... by this young man. Great Nana with I think no 16 great grandchild who was due on Jan 9th but arrived last weds. I had made his quilt( having bought the pattern before he was a twinkle in his parents eyes... nothing like being organised!) and all I had to do was quilt it. We babysat DGS last week so my plan was to quilt it this week.....

...after a frantic 3 or so hours on Saturday , it's done. Finished the binding on Sunday at 11 a.m and handed it over to the proud parents at 5.00 p.m. Pretty happy with the job I did on the quilting.

Some butterflies as I like to put them into as many quilts as possible. I did manage a two minute cuddle of the 7lb 3 oz bundle of joy before we left him in the adoring arms of his auntie ( the bride from last post) and his grandparents.

These are the Dec Dear Jane blocks. Most have some cream fabric, from a friend of mine who is no longer with us so that is making this a bit special.

A quick special thanks to Michelle too for my gingerbread house decoration. It will make it to the tree when I get that set up... very slack here. Thanks too, to Shez for my beautiful butterfly. I love both of these decorations.

Back of the dress, stunningly simple and elegant as we knew it would be.

My DGS with his second cousin(the bride's niece) They both scrubbed up pretty well.

DH with his sister(mother of the bride) his mum and the bride. It was a great day and so pleased to share it with such a lovely couple.
