A Nephew!

Welcome to the world

Leo Maxwell

I have a new little one to admire - my sister's baby, born early this morning. Apparently he looks very much like her, and has my beautiful father's name for a middle name!

Congratulations Melinda and Shane.

Here's a quilt I made for the new addition:

Not perfect, but made with love.

Beautiful Prints - finally framed

These lovely prints were published in 1971 - the year I was born! My mum kept them in their cardboard cylinder for 38 years, just enough time for me to have children, move house and then need something to pretty up their new bedrooms.

I used for the frames (the prints are an unusual size). I must say I was quite impressed with their service. I ordered on Friday, and they arrived on Wednesday! I'm not sure how that compares to other custom framing, but I was impressed. A great range of different coloured frames and mats, and different glass options, too.
Now they just need to be hung in the girls rooms; the dark haired girl for Louisa, and the fair haired for Lizzie, of course! It makes life easy to have two girls with opposite colouring.
