And Then She Was Two ...

My little bear turned two today ... 

I still remember making this quilt for her (pre-blogging).  

It was an exercise in very rudimentary hand quilting for me.  

It was the best thing ever to have this quilt lay over my belly and quietly stitch away ...

Well enough reminiscing - there's a Teddy Bear's Picnic birthday party to plan!

The picnic roll party favours are nearly finished ... I swear I'm dreaming in gingham these days!

I've got quite the production line happening and, well, the trimmed gingham does make a pretty scrap pile :)

When all the birthday party craziness is over I shall turn my attention back to my MIL's quilt.

Kristy from Quiet Play was very kind to draw up a nest for her Songbird pattern - the one I used to make the Wren block - my MIL has three children...

... so the little wren needed three eggs in her nest ... more of that next week.

Until then I shall keep sewing up this bah humbug! gingham!
