The giving of gifts

My job as a secret Santa is over for now, I sent my gift (not the one in the picture) yesterday, and in a fortnight the dedicated one will receive it!!
This has been an adeventure, hope you will make this possible again next year Donna.

Today I gave away this babyquilt, made for an unborn boy. It's a gift for a helpful friend and her baby to be....

It's made from light brown babycord and light blue japanese fabric with bunnies on it. I used fleece on the back side and have machine quilted it.

I have made blankets before from the same pattern, and I had forgotten how fast it was to make. It took me two nights to make it..... My concentration sort of devoured me - and I quietly followed, working on a flow. It was wonderful :o)

Wish you all a happy weekend and an inspiring 1. Sunday of Advent.

  2. Love the soft, muted colors of the quilt, and the simplicity of block design/pattern! Happy first weekend of advent! ((HUGS))

  3. Kjempesøt babyteppe! Koselige farger og fint mønster. Jeg har fått en bestilling på et babyteppe (til en gutt), som jeg bør sy før jul. Har ikke helt fått ånden over meg enda, men jeg bør nok sette igang snart. Og teppet ditt ser kjempefint ut (og rask å sy også!)

  4. Good thing you have mailed off the giftie to xxx :o) I will get in line at the post office tomorrow...
