flutin tootin


My third daughter Megan aged 12 has started to learn to play the flute
And she's quite good too!!!
Doesn't she look professional!!!!!
Has been teaching herself at home more advanced stuff than the teacher has shown her and can even play good old "Hot Cross Buns" and "Mary Had a Little Lamb"
Why is it when an instrument is learned these are ALWAYS some of the first tunes that we learn?

egyptian quilts for the new grandchild



I dared to cut into some Holy Fabric yesterday. About 2 years ago I made Aimee an Egyptian quilt - most of the fabric used I swapped with others on internet quilting list as I wasnt able to source much Egyptian type fabric at the time - mind you its easy to get now!!!
Anyways I digress.....



There was a sizable amount of fabric left over -and SOOOO lovely - all golds and bronzes and very Nice Indeed
So...
Yesterday I bravely decided to make Aimee's impending child (any day now!!!) a cot quilt to match hers - and I still had some fabric left so I made a bassinette cover as well!!!
AND
theres still some left!!!
Photos dont do the quilts justice - they are gorgeous and gold and the gorgeous pregnant girly in the photo is Aimee tonight (38 weeks) doctor is a bit worried cos the baby is a size of a 33 week baby so might be induced today - waiting to see about that!!!
