JW's freshly bathed little feet in adorable mary jane socks given to her by her Oma and picked out for her every morning by her big brother.

My to do list for today is much less exciting, mostly paying bills and trying to settle on a date for JW's baptism. I'm hoping to have her baptised by the end of June. We always seem to have more difficulty organising a baptism date than we did a wedding date - insane!
Pattern: a freebie from Quiltbus.com
Dimensions: 90cm x 31cm
Fabrics: purchased from retromummy.com and my local quilt store
Details: machine pieced, hand quilted, fusible applique

aren't they just adorable? They're all sitting on J's bed (the bottom bunk) and you may notice that some of the paintings in the background have 'Jeremy' written on them. One of J's pre-school teachers cannot get his name right despite several gentle reminders and J's too timid to say anything himself. I hope she gets the hang of it before too long
Unfortunately, we've all been unwell and although I had been hoping JW wouldn't catch it she spent all day yesterday snuffling and has a congested nose today. I haven't had to deal with an ill newborn before so I'm winging it. I'm just keeping her warm, making sure she's getting enough fluids and keeping my fingers crossed that she gets over it quickly. The latter is very scientific of me, I know. I don't know if I should take her to the gp yet or wait and see if anything develops...
We're getting a gas fitting put in the living room this afternoon which will mean we can use our heater again and that should help us all feel better, we've had some very cold nights over the past few weeks. Fingers crossed the plumber turns up, he's already postponed twice!

This will be the quilt for G using the fabrics she selected 12 months ago. Yes, 12 months, I can't believe I still have done anything with them! I need to get to the fabric store this weekend to buy some cream background fabric and I can get started.
