Woo Hoo it's a wrap!

Just a very quick post as I'm working 9 - 3 today to make up for having yesterday off to sew.
Here it is Spencer's I Spy quilt completed - I sat up til 12.50 am last night to finish the binding which is a very late hour for a person who likes her bed as much as I do.
I made up a little verse for the label on the back:
I Spy with my little eye………
Something beginning with ‘S’ .

Is it a slippery snake that wiggles?
Or maybe a snail moving slowly away?
Or could it be a tasty sizzling sausage?
No……… .
It’s Spencer and he’s ready to play

To Spencer for your very first Christmas

Enjoy snuggling under this quilt, playing I spy
and picking out the colours with Mummy and Daddy

Lots of love
Auntie Anne, Uncle Nigel, Sarah, Nick and Lulu
Christmas 2007
I do hope he has fun with it.
So only a heart garland and a Christmas stocking to get done for Sunday teatime - a good job too as we're out for my office do tonight, down at the local supermarket doing a fundraising bag pack for the girls' rugby team for virtually all tomorrow and then rugby on Sunday afternoon as usual - hardly time to draw breath really - guess I'll just have to squeeze in the last bits for the 'Northern Express' on Saturday evening and Sunday morning.
Then three quillows to complete next week - mind you one of which isn't completely pieced yet - I guess I still have my work cut out.
I shall be glad when it gets to Christmas Day to stop for a rest - thank goodness my MIL is cooking the meal!

Once again - just darling! An original way to present an I Spy quilt. Wish I had thought of it! LOL Have a lovely Christmas, and I'm sure Spencer will get many YEARS of enjoyment with this lovely quilt.

Spencer's I Spy quilt is adorable. Great job on that poem. The mouse in your boss's Christmas hanging is soooo cute!

Libby said...

That's a great I Spy quilt . . . and the label is just perfect. Just think of the hours of fun he will have playing and learning. Great job *s*

Just wonderful, Anne!! And the verse is adorable. What a fantastic gift.

Well done to you, Anne, you certainly have been busy. I just love the colours of the I-Spy quilt and I'm sure it will be enjoyed by Spencer for years to come. Having made colourful quilts from both my grandchildren based on charm squares they are much loved by them.

I've read your posts from the last few days and I guess you'll look forward to Christmas to have a rest!!

Your I Spy quilt is adorable and the poem is fantastic.

Tanya said...

WONDERFUL! WONDERFUL! WONDERFUL! That is going to be a family heirloom!

Nice Anne - haven't seen an eye-spy done with that sort of block before, but it's really effective. Obviously I'm having a slow morning, because when I read your poem for the back my first thought was that you didn't have a child called Lulu - I worked it out fairly quickly, I hasten to add, but clearly, my brain's not entirely awake yet (so obviously, I need another cup of tea and more blog-reading before I go up to sew!)
