I MANGED

... to get my August  B-O-T-M block done to-day.. this month is the monkey...


we just have the lion to go and that will be it done .. then it will be putting it all together ... mind you I have done mine as I have gone along..


so it will be layering and quilting ...THEN the fighting between Sally (daughter) and James (grandson no 2) as to WHO is going to get it xx I cannot complain that no-one wants what I make x lol xx

My daughter has a friend who is expecting her first baby early next year .. well you just HAVE to send a gift .. don't you? AND you all know I LOVE making hippos xx lo x SO .. what was I to do?

I started the knitting and the pattern was coming out sooooo cute ..


I just had to make it so that it looks like it is wearing a onesy!!...



I love it ... and am sure she will too x She lives in Liverpool so if I get it in the Post on Monday she should have it by Tuesday xx

Hope you are having a good weekend x

I adore your animal quilt!
THe latest in the hippo family is so cute and quirky, I'm sure the "Mum to be" will love it. It really looks like you have done the most intricate Fair Isle knitting!!!!
I'm so restless with excitement as my German family branch arrives tomorrow.. Can't wait.

Great to see the monkey done. I have only got as far as choosing fabrics, but I may get some time over the next couple of days to actually sew it.

Your hippos look so huggable!
