It's been a few days ...

The past few days have whizzed by and I've hardly been going on my computer.
On Tuesday Mum and I went to Sevenoaks to a quilt shop I hadn't been to before (I'd never been to Sevenoaks before either!) to look for some material for the next quilt I'm making. I found these materials and the border material (the patterned fabric underneath the others) and a couple of others are from the Basic Grey "Eva" range by Moda. I'd never seen scrapbook papers as fabric before so this was quite cool! This morning Hugh, Claire, Mum, Dad and I went and voted first thing. We had to go to our local community centre and were in and out quite quickly. I'm interested to see what's going to happen with these elections, it's certainly the closest the parties have been in a long time!
It was then time for us to head down to the hospital for Claire's 12 week scan. Claire and Craig both had the day off work for the scan so Craig came with us. It was the first time Craig had seen a scan and baby played to the audience. It raised it's arm and we could see the little hand and all the fingers and at one point it looked like it was sticking it's tongue out ;o)
It's amazing what a difference three weeks makes - from the little shrimp like blob to this little baby who is now 6cm long. So sweet!


  1. Certainly looks like a baby now alright!

    I like what you've picked for your quilt.

  2. Ah, the Jelly Bean scan ~ so sweet! Who knew that BG did fabric? How cool is that! I can't wait to see what you come up with.

  3. What gorgeous fabrics! And what a sweet scan! Exciting times :-)

  4. I love the fabrics you chose and can't wait to see them put together!

    And, aw! Look at your little grandchild. My guess is that it's a girl. :o)

  5. Beautiful fabrics; I always love seeing the before and after. Technology sure has changed since I had kids! How exciting to see the changes as they develop.
