making a gift to take to the lovely Bo's first birthday party, which we couldn't attend in the end due to wee man's sickness bug:

The other thing I've been working on is hand quilting my Sparkle Logic quilt:
It's taking blinking aaaaaages but I guess the cutting and piecing did too. I bought some Black and Gold applique needles as they are slightly longer and I felt more in control. I started off using my hoop but that got canned early doors so it's a bit of a wing and a prayer really. I know my stitches aren't the smallest but I'm trying to keep them as even length as I can.
This week I have GOT to crack on with Kelly's Kinky Bee block and Phuong's QATWII block (you should see this beauty in real life - the back is just as nice as the front! No pressure then....). Lemsips are go!
