Give-away. GD and New baby

Ok. So my link didnt work that time. http//www. Designs by Fee .com should get her. Dont miss this great give away. The fabrics are lovely.

My one and only 10yr old GD wanted a black and yellow quilt with a honeybee in the centre. (her idea) So, we're nearly there. Just need a border, then backing, and it may be ready this week.
A new little girl was born into our family. She is my DH's nephew's first child, and is called Niamh. If you cant understand Irish names, (and not many can, including yours truly) it is pronounced Neeve.
I haven't met her yet, as they live in England. I had crossstitched these sweet little pink shoes some time ago, and added her birth details. I plan to put it in a frame or on the lid of a box for keeping her special treasures in. That's me for now folks. Better get the dinner on :o)

Designs by Fee is having a great give-away. Hurry to her blog to find all about it. I tried to capture the picture but couldnt.

BOM Pond House

I said I would post a pic when I got my first block finished. The second one came today, and I realised I hadnt blogged the other. Well, here goes.
This block is looong and difficult to photograph all together with my wee camera.
Here is a closer look at some of the detail. I mostly blanket stitched round the flowers and leaves.The little birds will have button eyes after it is the far distant future.The quilt is a design by Lynette Anderson Designs of Australia. visit her blog at I am really enjoying it so far.
