What a smile filled day!

I couldn't wait to tell you about the absolute gorgeous little pincushion that Jacquie from My Journey sent me through the post. Isn't it gorgeous? It did indeed make me smile and truly made my day. She has a lovely inspiring and cheerful blog that is always a pleasure to read, if you haven't met her yet then I'm sure she would welcome you with open arms so pop over! Thank you Jacquie!
And the backing fabric....
I also met up with a good friend of mine for lunch. She is pregnant with a little girl who is due in November and I'm a bit crazy about the little one already. I had bought her a goodie bag of bits and pieces to spoil the baby when she arrives including bibs, babygros, outfits, teddies and a blanket. I'm also stitching her a birth sampler for when the baby arrives but shhh, she doesn't know hehe. It was lovely to see her face when she saw everything and I got a lovely photo of little baby girls wardrobe with everything hanging up. So cute!
Also the cot with the teddies and blankets in it...
Michael and I don't want children of our own but it is lovely to be part of others lives. Being an Auntie is going to be the best! I have great memories of my auntie's spoiling me rotten and taking me out for the day when I was younger, so I can't wait to do the same for my nephew from December and my friends baby girl from November. Exciting times!!
Hope you're all well. Until next time...happy stitching!

  5. That's a lovely little pillow which makes one smile just when looking at it.

  6. Lovely present from Jacquie, she really is a sweetie!

    I love babies' nurseries before the baby arrives, so neat and tidy! And so refreshing to see a wardrobe NOT full of garish pink. I love the purple dotty babysuit, and the yellow/grey elephants. And is that a "Guess how much I love you" outfit at the front? And baby has books already. They are going to be awesome parents :-)


Thanks for stopping by!
