Oh post-Christmas period how I love thee! Life is suddenly more relaxing, kids seem happier, everyone is rested, fed and calm. In the lead up to Christmas it really does get all sorts of cray cray here, like I am sure it does in most houses. So right now, this chance to breathe out is so so welcome.
Now I haven’t turned my machine back on yet since it went off on the 23rd December – four days is a long time for me! I am deliberately trying to resist the urge to sew and allow my brain the space to be creative. Already I have designed 4 quilts so it is clearly working lol. I am also trying to avoid any admin work because lets face it – nothing kills my creativity faster than that <<insert winky face here>>. Soooo that means it is the perfect time to write blog posts and catch you guys up on all the custom quilts that found new homes over the past few weeks.
First up is Hayley’s nursery. How lucky I am to have her mum Robin as a gorgeous customer. I have made many quilts for Robin over the years. She has a love of colour and a tremendous amount of style so it is always a pleasure to work with her and create. Sadly Robin’s first quilt was made back before I had this blog but you can see Darcy’s nursery here and her mama throw here. As always Robin didn’t disappoint when it came to fabric selections and chose the divine Sunny Isle range by Jennifer Paganelli – oh happy days!
Robin chose a comforter quilt for Hayley which is a squishy ball of goodness. Never a technically perfect quilt but soft, cuddly and warm. A matching pillowcase, large baskets completed the look to create pieces that wont date and will be useful for years to come, not just in the nursery stage.
Once Hayley was safely here and her name confirmed I posted off the matching name cushion too with a bit of gold for added sparkle.
Now i know what you all came for and that is a photo of the gorgeous Hayley. Honestly she is such a doll, just look at all that sweetness.
Thank you so much Robin for trusting me with yet another quilt for your family. It is always such a privilege to be asked to create a nursery for a new baby and be part of such an important and exciting part of family history.
