Liberty quilt for Little Sis

Yesterday I finished another quilt, a pretty Liberty rainbow quilt for Little Sis. I bought the fabric at the Knitting and Stitching Show last October and knew it would be my first sewing project on 2016. As the strips were pre-cut it really didn’t take me longer than a few evenings.

The front is made from strips of Liberty, the back features a single piece of Gallymoggers Reynard fabric from the Alice in Wonderland themed SS15 Collection by Liberty. I did simple quilting in the ditches and it is very pretty – perfect for Little Sis!

She loves it which I am pleased about. I used a really light weight batting so it’s more of a summer quilt, but it’s been perfect for cuddling up with on the sofa when she has felt ill this week.

Lego play

Little Sis wanted to play with the Lego Duplo today. I have to admit we don’t get it out very often as they both seem happy playing with normal Lego now. I was quite pleased though, as we haven’t changed the base board on our homemade Lego table yet!

Little Sis insisted on making me a Lego birthday cake, actually she made me two, and kept making me blow the candles out!

A gift for the fairies

During our shopping trip at the weekend I picked up a bottle of special fairy dust for Little Sis to give to the fairies in the woods. She’s always talking about them and visiting their house so I thought this would make a fun gift.

We spent the morning writing a little note (me), drawing pictures (her) and making sure we put our little gift in an envelope and bag to protect it from the cold weather.

We dropped it off on our way to the library – hopefully Little Sis will get some return mail soon.
