a good day's work

I have had a friend round today. Well, truth to tell, she is my daughter's friend first. And, she has a baby. A gorgeous young man. Nearly 13 weeks old. And this young lady doesn't sew! No, make that, didn't sew!
 Look what she has accomplished today. 
Choosing fabric, and where it was going.

And then sewing and cutting, and pressing.

 Layering it up, to make that quilt sandwich, and pinning it!
 Quilting it

And trying the not quite finished item for size!

I am hoping she will come round on Sunday to trim and bind this! I think the young Sir likes his new quilty playmat!

he was sooo good. They arrived a little after 10.00, and he played and socialised until about noon. A good bottle of milk, and he was out for the count until about 4.30 this afternoon! and then he let me cuddle and chat while his Mummy got on with the sewing! With a bit of luck he will come with his Mummy on Sunday, and I can have more cuddles!

I do not know about you, but I think that is amazing for a complete- as in never touched a sewing machine before- novice!  I think she may do more.
