Good morning everyone!
Firstly, thank you to all you kind folk who left lovely messages of congratulations on the safe arrival of my gorgeous little grandson!
As you can imagine I have had lots of opportunities for cuddles and I know I am biased but he really is a beautiful baby!  (See below if you missed him last week!)

Of course, this week I haven't been crafting but I thought I would just post the little quilt I made for his travel moses basket which I have here ready for any visits.

I hope you are all well and still enjoying this amazing weather.
I hope I get round a few more WOYWW desks this week
Have a great week.
x Jo

What a pretty quilt that seems to be and what patience to sew that elephant so neatly. I love the idea of the hearts coming from his trumpet (trunk!). What a lucky boy Ben is with a talented gran (and aunt
and mummy)

I KNEW you'd make something amazing for Ben! That is so gorgeous!
Guess what, I've sent off for a free machining foot for my machine this week. I'm determined to have a go - just wish I was nearer so you could show really are a Master at it! (I should have said Mistress, but well, you know, that just sounded wrong!)
hope all are well and happy in your lovely family!

That is the cutest little elephant ever. Yes, you have a gorgeous grandson...I saw his photo the other day. Such a blessing. And I actually squealed when I got the magazine in the mail! I just love the whole thing...thank you again dearest! And I am excited about weaving these little patches and using fun and funky threads to see what happens. Have a wonderful week. Hugs!

All grandmother's, whether first timers or seasoned, have earned bragging rights automatically, so go ahead, tell us as often as you like how wonderful he is :) I love the wee blanket - the elephant is so cute.
