A new baby

Have you seen this little baby yet? We went and joined the queue’s at Melbourne zoo a little while ago and spent some time oohing and ahhing over this amazing little creature:

What a cutie! It is amazing watching a playful elephant – much like a playful puppy only much, much bigger! This is one of the sights Janelle and her family will have to see when they come over. Only 2 weeks from tomorrow! Here’s a close up – a slightly blurry one!

Any sewing going on? I’ve just finished another batch of school dresses for our school – I am so over gingham!

Kylie and I have committed to doing a Dear Jane quilt. Do you remember Kylie starting hers last year, well she needed some motivation to keep at it… I volunteered. I have a bit of catching up to do, but with  some reproduction fabrics (I’m going traditional this time). I’ve almost quit a couple of times this week and I’m only on block 7!! I thought I was starting on the easy ones too. Seven down, 218 to go!

Now to something a little brighter for the rest of the month. I must finish binding my zig zag quilt… will take a photo when it’s done.

 

Happy Stitching!

Awww, the baby elephant looks adorable :)
Great progress on the Dear Jane blocks, love the colours you've chosen.
I have packed my 'I Remember' block of the month for the sewing weekend - I'm a wee bit keen!
See ya soon

I can't wait to take the kids to see the baby elephant, I think there is another one due in April, itwill be good to see them playing together.
