For Nehemiah

Quilted and waiting for binding, but that won't be done until the wee hours while watching a movie. Nehemiah was born quite a few months ago now...but as he is not yet a year old, I can still call it his baby quilt!

February in review

Violet turned 3

Valentine's Day breakfast - white choc chip pancakes & strawberries.

New clothes from Aunty Mindy, Uncle Steve and Ruby

A friend is having a baby girl and I made a snuggly quilt to go with her yellow and green, bee themed room.

It has been very cold and very snowy, too cold to play outside. Thank goodness Mummy's work is full of toys and swings. She takes us every weekend and we have lots of fun.

Homemade Valentines

At Lucy's school they make homemade Valentine's cards to distribute to their classmates. This year she drew and wrote her own card. Here it is sans the glitter that was liberally applied later.

Violet wanted to make one too, and this is her version. We used Lucy's Happy Valentine's Day, but Violet wrote her own name. Not bad for just turned 3!

We will attach sucker to the "hand" of the picture - 'cos it's just not a holiday without some sugar!

Valentines gift

Remember my post about Ava and how awesome she is doing with a lot of love and a little therapy? And then remember how I went onto talk about the orphans online who tug at my mummy heartstrings? Well, today they are combined again in a post by Charissa (Ava's mummy). She is raising money for Anya's adoption fund. Anya has arthrogryposis. She gets no therapy in her orphanage, but here it could be different. Children here with arthrogryposis get surgery. They get therapy. They get to be up, out of bed, playing and learning. As I can't adopt her (sigh) I will instead contribute to her fundraising and hope that will help someone adopt her and get her the help she needs.
