Hello lovely readers,
I have another finish to show you. It’s still only a flimsy but as we know, I don’t mind flimsies.
A year or so ago (my, how quickly time goes!) my youngest daughter’s teacher left to have a baby. I was recruited into making a quilt for her – all the students drew a block and it was very well received. You can see that post here.
I loved the concept, and so I decided I’d make my two girls do a few quilt blocks and I’d make them both their own quilt – a perfect snapshot of their ages.
They didn’t really approach it with as much gusto as I hoped. Turns out drawing loads and loads of pictures just to keep your mother happy isn’t as much fun to little girls as it sounds.
So I cut my losses and put the two girls’ blocks together, and now I have a precious Mummy momento just for me.
Already in the time it took me to make this a flimsy I can see how their artwork has changed and how they have matured. The time is flying past me, my two babies are not babies anymore and it’s very bittersweet. I know you know what I’m talking about.
I’m hopeless really, I keep everything they ever draw or write to me. And I’ll keep this one forever too.
Have a lovely weekend.
