So, Gentle Readers, what-up? Just kidding. I've been busy making stuff, fiddling with Instagram (you can find me under "IsabellaGolightly26", where my icon is the incredibly tubby rabbit I made some time ago as the tester:
Including this, for my Nephew and his Lovely Bride, who are expecting their first baby in July:
And this, for my good friend the Jaxster, whose daughter is expecting a baby... sometime soonish.
And here she is, with her scaled down siblings - this Heather Bailey bird really knows how to make good patterns, I have to say. Plus she liked some photos on my Instagram account. Woot...
I confess to be looking for a job in a somewhat desultory fashion, checking the online sites and applying only for those things that grab me... So far the daily diet of washing, cooking, sewing, coffee and internetting (is that even a verb? It should be!!) has not palled, but I'm sure it will soon, as there are only so many things one can make, although I have turned the poor neglected Sydney Pies quilt into a cot quilt for Great-Baby (insert Niece or Nephew here) E, which gets it out of the UFO box, and I've also finally pieced the last of the Japanese fabrics into a whole quilt top.
All I have to do now is put the top sashing on, and send it off to the quilter. I was going to hand quilt it, but it's huge, and life is too short. I am hand-quilting the Sydney Pies, and I promise pictures when it's morphed into a baby giraffe quilt. You'll see soon enough.
