I'm giving you a sneak peek. My husband's on stand-by to take some proper photos but here, with my poor phone photographing skills, is a little view from the Tiny One's bedroom floor of his new quilt.
I finished it in record time. My guess is that, if I didn't have to sew in fits and starts and if someone babysat my boys, I could make a single-size quilt in a day. Not sure that'll ever happen though!
All three of my boys now lie under quilts made by their mother's hand. It is what my sewing is all about really: my creativity and crafting making things that are useful and good and giving. My heart goes into what I sew, and then a small piece of my heart stays with them each night as they lie alone in their beds. Although I have to say that this poetry is slightly rose-tinted: it's not that rare for me to be in their beds too, trying to get them back to a deep sleep so they don't disturb anyone else!
There's a happy middle ground between the ideal/idyll and the reality in both parenting and sewing. I'm snuggling in there for the long term.
