"Welcome Beau."

Hello,

Happy Monday.

I recently had cause to do some sewing for a new family member. My Niece Jill and Dave welcomed Beau their firstborn.


I made up a sign to hang on his door.


 I found a pattern for a book bag in Homespun magazine No.67 Vol 9.12 which is the Kids Issue.I changed things around a bit as I had this piece of fabric with Teddy on. I used DMC  Cebelia crochet cotton size 20 to do the quilting.

 This is the other side. I changed this side also. Instead of applique teddy bears I machine embroidered them.


 Being a book bag I made a cloth book for Beau to look at. The front was a Dalmatian design. This used to be one of Lucy's favourite designs when she was younger.


 Next page is a owl.


 The last one is a Teddy Bear. I found the design for the book page on the net and enlarged it to fit the designs.
Best wishes to Jill and Dave, hope Beau is a dream baby.


Speaking of babies. Look what I found the other week, a baby goanna. Over the past couple of weeks we have had so many in the garden. I am sure they are nesting in one part as they are seen each day.

The hand quilting on the Heartbeat quilt is going well, past the half way mark which is a good feeling.

Hope you all have a Happy Monday.

Happy days.
Bev C
