a baby and a quilt

 I know you've been waiting patiently for this post, and I've been very quiet of late, but we've had a lovely trip to Auckland to meet our first grandchild, Neve.
And of course a new baby is a great excuse to make a new quilt!

Granddad has his first cuddle
 Neve is now 2 weeks old, and what a gorgeous wee thing. So small, so perfect and so sleepy.

I get to have a wee cuddle too
I think I could quite possibly bought her home with me!

And here is her wee cot quilt in pinks, lemons and lavender.

Have a lovely week everyone and I promise not to fill this blog with photos of Neve!

Neve is a little sweetie! Just 13 years' time those parents will have their very own teenager.....

Carole Neve is adorable and you should never be afraid to fill your blog with her photos-I for one would be very dissappointed if you didn't show us them.
Love the quilt as well.
