Birthdays in February mean full on coats, thick socks and waterproofs for a day out. All the kids still had ice-creams though obvs πŸ¦πŸ™„

Re-posting from @nellofthebelles - this is my favourite ever photo taken as the boys met each other for the first time. Fortunately A's yellow t-shirt softens R's jaundice πŸ’“

Birthday card message. Brotherly love πŸ™„

My copies of the Oh Sew Cute Baby Crafts book has arrived and it's lovely to see the projects in print after all this time. I was really pleased with the mobile and that hooded baby towel travelled to France with us and I hand-stitched the binding in the car

This time 7yrs ago...πŸ‘•βš½οΈ

3 or so years ago I sort of did do a book and designed the patterns for this 'Oh Sew Cute As A Button' book, although I have never laid eyes on a copy. Anyway today I discovered *what I think is* it on The Book People's website so I've ordered a couple of copies so I can finally have a look at how they turned out. From memory it has applique baby blocks, an elephant toy, applique hooded baby towel, little owls mobile, a bunny comforter (with fabric supplied I think) and a roll up change mat and pouch.

This really is of no consequence whatsoever but I still got a kick out of it (small things eh?!) - this quilting cross just happened to fall perfectly on the seam that joined the backing pieces. Love flukey sewing πŸ˜„

I made @lilysquilts fantastic #galaxyquilt for @sewingquarter on Saturday. Love this pattern as there is a bit of foundation piecing and applique in there and great easy-to-follow cutting and piecing instructions. My boys both had their eyes on it! πŸš€ πŸ‘€

Not the usual show for me on @sewingquarter today! It's been so lovely to show them this side of my life πŸ’•

My dragon is in issue 39 of @simplysewing and will also be featured on @sewingquarter too. The second photo is of my first attempt at him which wasn't a million miles off but as you can see needed some changes. I never bothered adding eyes as it wasn't worth it, instead it was used to sketch out the alterations - pen line to show change needed to mouth seam. Also the nostrils are too big but any smaller they'd be impossible to sew so the whole dragon was boosted to accommodate his big nostrils! Also the finished version has his arms angled downwards more - not so jazz-hands and more of a neck 🐲

I only stood up to get the remote (approx 1m away) and the cat jumped straight into my place. Mike seemed to prefer his new sofa buddy πŸ˜’
