    A few months back I sent for some for a quilt for my soon to be born great grand-daughter (she's due in August).....well this is what I made with it! I had to send all the way to the USA for it but it was worth every penny!!
    My grand-son has seen the fabric but not what I made from it. He came up when the baby was just a tadpole (lol)! and I took him up to my sewing room to show him his younger brother's crib (which has been here for the last 18 years)...he was thrilled to bits when I told him he could take it if he wanted it, so he was one happy bunny!!
    I'm waffling again! so I'll just show you the quilt!

    Thanks Lisa and Chele! That was my first attempt at quilting and I'm afraid I never stuck to the rules lol!....every line of stitching crossed another one 'cos I just went round in circles (story of my life really)! lol!
    My Mum used to tell everyone...please dont tell Karen she's not supposed to do something ....because then she does it twice!

    That is so cute. I may borrow your idea for a Buzz Lightyear book panel I got from my grandson. That's neat the way it will fold up...great for car trips.

    Wow, that brought back vivid memories of my nursery school years. I grew up on nursery rhymes. I had a book with huge color pictures. And I have total recall of my nursery school days when all they did was feed us snacks, read us nursery rhymes and take us outside to the playground.

    And then our parents came and picked us up. I'd love to have something like that for myself for sentimental reasons. I have the same attachment to Grimms Fairy Tales and Walt Disney.
