It seems that when life gets hectic here the first thing to go is blogging, the time to sit and think is a luxury I used to take for granted, now I relish even 10 minutes to gather my thoughts and sit with a cup of tea and my screen open.
I spent the past few weeks in an insanely busy state, now I can breathe out knowing my orders are as caught up as can be and work through my business to do list – updating the blog with all my recent pretties is of course top priority!
One of the nurseries I completed and managed to send on its way home is Darcy’s – it was so much fun to create for a boy, and Cotton and Steel always provides the richness of colour and pattern I love to create something striking and unique.
The brief was for a comforter cot quilt, personalised pillow and pillowcase. With the leftover pieces I created a wee basket too for all the little bits that seem to come with a little person. Not having a cot here means that I don’t get to do the set up shots I love but usually my mamas send some great ones through when they get time. There is nothing better than seeing a quilt in its home, in the spot it is intended for.
So half decent photos on my normal background it is for this post! I think the story is stil told pretty well though.
A comforter cot quilt is a squishy piece of goodness, not technically ever a perfect sew but such a great quilt for snuggling with and for babies that is a definite win
The back of the quilt was done in lion – I love this print so much!
And accessories – I love that Robin chose things that are not nursery specific, Darcy can use his pillowcase and personalised pillow for years, and they are in designs I am sure will appeal for any age too!
A late addition to the set was these gorgeous wall hoops – simple to make but they will look amazing on the nursery wall.
Now comes the nervous part – waiting for it to be delivered and hoping I exceeded expectations!
Now hopefully life stays this calm and uneventful so I can share all the other pieces I have been creating behind the scenes.
