A week at home

I've been home all week with a head cold, sore throat etc. being very lazy with an afternoon snooze. Here is Block 2 of Yoko Saito's Mystery BOM. I had  almost finished it last weekend so this week I worked on Block 3. Now I need to wait for the next issue of Quiltmania, not due until July, to continue. 

oops! I've haven't put the flowers on the second tree.

A little lady in the family turned 1 yesterday, Grace Amelia. I can't believe how fast the time has gone. Below is a photo of what we gave our Grand daughter. I made a mattress, pillow and quilt for it. Seemingly she has spent the morning trying to climb into it. It should be pretty sturdy,it's all wood and made by a Swedish company, Moover.

What a beautiful pram have you bought, it looks fantastic and she will have it for the rest of her life to cherish!
Oh your blocks look great, because of my hand I still haven't finished block one, but maybe in a few weeks I can stitch again! Greetings

That doll pram is adorable. Love the house blocks. Hope you feel better soon.

Love your blogs, hopefully I will get time to make them. My daughter used to try and climb into her doll stroller, but wasn't built that well, lol.

Lovely stitching! You've reminded me to look for Quiltmania in the book store. I think I'm missing the most recent issue.
What a sweet stroller - especially so because you've made bedding for it. So cute that Grace Amelia wants to climb in. It does look comfy!
