But first I unveil the masterpiece (scoff) that is my daughters entry into the school 'Royal Wedding Hat' competition today. OK they were supposed to do it themselves but I guarantee you none of the hats I saw were child created. How many 5 year olds do you know who could make a 3ft papier mache top hat covered in Union Jacks? Competitive Mummy Syndrome kicked in although I did get her to cut out the bunting herself (after I had drawn triangles onto the fabric for her, naturally). She designed it. I just sewed it all on.

So onto the pathetic attempt to persuade you I am actually managing productivity with a baby crawling all over me.
Space Quilt - quilt top almost done now. See here - I made my own bias tape for the very first time. I actually love it and don't want to use it now. It looks so pretty in the drawer. Excuse horrible fake colours in rocket shot - when photo editing goes bad!
Lilac Pinwheels - A stack of really pretty fabrics waiting to be a quilt aswell. I consider making this pile part of the work!!!
Mermaid Baby - I have a real urge (why) to make some little mermaid toys but am trying to create something a little different that will kind of sit well with the whales I have already got. It's not perfect yet, it's missing something. Any ideas?
