I had a call from my baby brother the other day - he's nine years and five days my junior.
He and his wife are making me an auntie again - yippee! My only other real niece and nephew (ie mine not DH's) are almost 19 and 16 so it's a while since we've had a new baby on our side of the family - nine and a half years since Monster #3 to be precise - shown here in the white and maribou directly in front of her elder sister , the middle one in the burgundy - they both do clean up quite well. This was taken at my brother's wedding two years ago in October.
I'm pretty certain I posted this quilt photo almost as soon as I started blogging - it shows the wedding quilt I made for them which is all hand appliqued celtic knotwork.
As you can imagine I shall have to come up with something pretty special for a baby quilt to follow it - still as they've only just found out and I probably have 'til March or April I have a while to do something really nice - now ................... ideas?
