Giraffes and ballerinas.

I love the arrival of a new baby ...great excuse to make a cutesy quilt !

In this case, baby Eva's mum Mel has a penchant for giraffes so a combination of the giraffe from the Noah's Ark pattern with some vibrant pinwheels and voila !
Mel was so excited to receive this pink quilt from our quilt group..after two boys the colour is a great change from blue and army green .

This weekend was spent indoors escaping the chilly, rainy weather. Emily took to drawing on the magna-doodle ( a hand-me- down toy from her brother which has seen better days ).
I was rather surprised at the detail in this drawing so I HAD to take a photo for the scrapbook...
it is of a ballerina prancing across the dance floor (her words) .
Just too cute and not a bad effort for a 3 yr old.

Funny how girls can be amused for hours drawing and colouring from early in life. The boys that I have known do not seem to be able to sit still as long the girls..too many jumping beans.

Hope you enjoyed your weekend. We did !
