Birthday gifts!

Here are some of the hand made gifts that were given for yesterdays special first birthday celebration! She loved them!

A pink corduroy dachshund, featuring Liberty of London fabric. (He's a bit chubby...)

A #1 bib to make sure everyone knows its her birthday!

A dress made from berry jersey and a lace trim refashioned from a special top of her mum's. The dress has a petticoat too (all little girls love them!).

A wonderful set of wooden food from Mooo. I lined the box with felt and made a drawstring bag to carry all the goodies around in.

A place setting for playing with the food- featuring felt cutlery and a quilted plate. Here is breakfast, lunch and some snacks all set out on the place setting!

All overseen, of course, by the sweetest cat ever.

Shnookies quilts- Red quilt

Here is another new baby quilt for friends. They also don't know whether it's a boy or a girl, so hopefully this red quilt will be perfect for either.

We hope they like it!

Luckily, it got the seal of approval from the most discerning quilt critic- our beautiful cat. He thinks it's tops!

Shnookies quilts- Owl quilt

Here is a new quilt just made for friends expecting their first baby in the next few weeks. They don't know if there is a boy or a girl on the way, so we chose fabrics that will work well for either. We hope they like it!

The quilt top was made using a new technique that made it faster and more fun to make. So there will be more of these types of quilts to come!

The quilting has made this a tough little blanket that can be used and washed often. Can't wait to give it to the parents-to-be!

Cats on quilts

Some inspiration for those of us that love cats and quilts. And who know that there is nothing a cat loves more than sleeping on anything you are sewing...
