Yep another dolphin.................
And I think if you are a friend of Renny's and you are a girl and you have a birthday your going to get a dolphin!!!!
Oh and Poppy wants a dolphin, Grandma wants a dolphin, Kate wants a dolphin!!!!! Isaac should get one too I guess. I may open a dolphin processing plant... one of the nice kind....
So here's Seona-Kai's dolphin. She is 5 tomorrow. Renny and Isaac are going to her Dress-up party tomorrow (which reminds me make Ren more dress up outfits) and she's lucky to be getting a dolphin. I made it tonight. I'm good at that. Geniene has a great idea "let's make a quilt for ______ It's their birthday in a week! I can do it! 3am just a little more 4am oh it's finished now to sleep... lays down... can't sleep... did I do? is that done? oh time to get up..... Geniene dosn't enjoy herself cause she is so tired... If you know me personnally i know your saying "Yep that's Geniene"
So my Friday night Sew-in was a little sucessful!!!! and the little flower is one of the flowers I got in my suprise from Robyn. Thanks Robyn..
Till next time
Geniene XXXX Edited to Add : Little did I know that Seona's favourite toy is a little grey dolphin. She said her new dolphin was so beautiful and she loved it. I'm so happy I had time to just whip one up...
This quilt was originally going to be for my Gran but now I'm not sure!! We (my hubbie and I) have nick named it the ugly quilt.... He said it was an old peoples quilt or 'Something' his Mum would have made..
So finally the 'Hearts and Strings' quilt is finished. It's about a metre square.
When I found the pattern I wanted to make it for my friends wedding in september. The orignial pattern is in maroon and green. For Isabel I'm going to do it in burgandy and a dark green which I think may look better. The fabric I used to make 'The Ugly Quilt' i got from spotties for $2 per metre so in all it didn't cost to much.
I'm gonna be an Aunty again!!! Well great Aunt but I always was the Great Aunt!!!!
I've also been told it's going to be a boy!!! That means another quilt (any boy ideas)
and this one I am excited about.
I am a Thrity something female married with the most beautiful girl Rhiannon or Renny as we call her.We have just expanded in the family sense with the birth of our handsome mini man Isaac who has completed our little family.I have the best husband who I would say is also my best friend. It's great to have a partner who realises that craft is more important!!!
