A Special Present

I have finally finished Evelyn's baby shower quilt. 

Before she was born many people had been shopping or going through their stash to find a special piece of fabric for her special quilt. You have seen a peek before but it's finished now. 

I think she likes it and Emma and Josh  are pleased with it as well.

"Oh there is a tea pot from Poppy Kettle... LOL....horses and farm things from Mummy's friends at Alpha, owls from Daddy's cousin Stacey and a beautiful border from her sister, Jaimee. Dinosaurs from Aunty Lucy  and heaps more. Great Grandma Donpon gave the little birds under the red owl and Nip and Buddy were printed by Great Aunty Andrea."  

 Every one will be  acknowledged in the journal I am making to go with it. 

"Now Grandma I am inspecting your tag and my name ....I love checking out tags on things."

Evelyn can now crawl about about a metre or two at a time. She gets around very quickly when she wants something.

"Checking out every square and the back deserves a real inspection....Love the owl from Great Aunty Kathy and Grandama Jen added the fairies as her piece. The Pink strips came from Sweden."

"Feels so good especially Sally's embroidered owl that I am sitting on. I tried to scratch the embroidery off him."

It's gorgeous Jenny. One of the best projects I've seen for a long while. Evelyn looks so cute giving it a close inspection. So useful now, and a really special keepsake too.
