Haven't been quilting...

...but I have been sewing!

I am making some very cute pants for my nephews for their birthday, as well as for one of the babies in my mothers' group. We're doing a kind of secret santa birthday thing, so each of the babies gets one present from the group for his/her birthday. The baby I'm getting a present for will also receive a very cute Australian board book (you know, the indestructible kind they make for babies!).

Anyway, I made a prototype pair of pants for Romily. They are very baggy, black and furry. And very cute to boot!

Here she is. And check out that crawling action!

Might get my borders on my quilt on Sunday. We have friends coming over tomorrow, so I doubt I'll get anything much done sewing-wise tomorrow. Plus I have to finish those pants for the baby in my group, as his birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks and I need to send it interstate.

Thanks for the thumbs up on my decision to hand-stitch the quilt. I may even make a start one of these days :)

OH, she is a darling! Lucky girl that you sew for her. My mother sewed my dresses some 40 years ago and I still remember those special
outfits. Love that!
I am the same way with quilting, I put it down and get back to it when I can. Nothing wrong with that. Keep up the good work!

Lily, such a sweet baby! ...and the pants are gorgeous, too.

I love the oriental fabric and your blocks. As I am working on my first quilt also, I see no mistakes in your blocks (:
these ladies are most beautiful, aren't they? so delicate.

I have enjoyed reading the archives of your blog and am just now catching up!
Keep up the good work.

Great pants and she seems to enjoy touching them too!

Look at those little knees go! She finally got her tummy up and moving along! Good for her! She really is getting more and more beautiful!

Your daughter looks so sweet in her trousers. Lucky girl that she has such a talented mum.
