Very happy .....

Hubz and I met our new granddaughter last evening.... just one hour old.... how sweet she is.... and wide awake for having gone through all that struggling to get out and meet us!


This is Maddy's little sister and they live in the UK and so again I am incredibly grateful for modern technology....

This is the cot quilt I will be sending over for her (label still to be made) 
(I have shown it before... it has been waiting for a special princess to own it!)


I traced designs from the fabric range onto the top of the quilt and hand stitched these....


...and appliqued the words on the bottom... just soft quilting so it is snuggly and soft


.. the backing is some lovely vintage hollyhobby girl sheeting that I found...


Maddy wanted a sister more than anything.... see how utterly delighted she is....


.... another princess.... and I still tear up with joy....

Righto, Gotto Go.....
