Happy Monday

Good Morning all from (rainy) old Brisbane today. I have been slaving over instructions and assembling patterns this morning and decided to take a break and have a cuppa with you for a while. I also wanted to tell you something rather exciting about my Family. I have been hugging a gorgeous secret to my heart since last year. I am going to be a Nana again not Once but Twice very soon. The first little person is coming in about 10 weeks and the second about a month after that....so we are doubly blessed and just can't wait to meet them both on the outside. It has been so hard to keep from blabbing I can tell you.
So of course quilts are needed and both my girls are very different. DIL loves bright and funky colours particularly red while DD likes more pastels and is definitely a fan of pink. So here is what I have done so far.
I still have some bright flowers to applique around this Beary Faerie and I am going to reverse the bear and  change the flowers for butterflies in the 2nd quilt and I am using these fabrics for No 2. so they will be a bit different.
As you may have guessed we have had the results of scans. Me I am hoping they are right ( please don't relay any stories to me about scans being wrong as I am sure I have heard them all) otherwise there will be some panels quickly purchased and they will be getting in touch with their feminine sides early. I could not decide what to do for ages but I am happy now with my Happy Bear Faerie and hope they will be too.
I have enjoyed my cuppa with you but it is back to the instruction writing now.
I do hope wherever you are you get to do something you love.
Blessings Michelle xxx

  19. Well congratulations, I don't know how you kept quiet about it so long....personally, I don't see why these colors wouldn't do for either gender.......my son has a pink shirt he loves to wear and he is a manly man soldier.....I've seen entire fire departments here wear pink shirts in October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness. That said, I do know that young mothers have their own tastes and desires. My daughter didn't want her little girl to wear pinks and laces, etc. I made an afghan that was all lacy and soft and pretty and before I even got to the finished stage, she said she hoped it wasn't for her baby. So, I've put it away to give to the Princess when she has a baby of her own. And guess what, the Princess turned out to be a girly girl in spite of her mother's wishes.
    I love the Bear of course and would love to have the pattern.
