So please excuse these photographs. Also they were taken on a phone as this was when my camera had just given up. Not my best. But sweet enough makes, so the state of the photographs has been forgiven
Fabric Rehab and the blue floral has been sitting in the pile for so, so many years. Possibly one of the longest term residents of my fabric pile. It has a light blue cotton background with oh so many blue daisies embroidered all over. Purchased in Brighton when the shop Velvet still had a separate fabric and habadashery shop.
There was some sneaky piecing for both fabrics as this was a using what was in the pile make. Sandwiched inside is some cotton flannel, as Baby Robin lives in Kenya so I imagined doesn't need anything too hot. I quilted it altogether on the machine with some large squares, which are totally lost in these photographs, but it did give a gently quilted feel

I followed the pattern until the final cast off stitch when I added a few extra stitches to create a button loop, whereas the original finishes with a ribbon or hook and eye. And look, there is moss stitch and dear little cables.
I seem to have been showing lots of wooly makes here recently - there are a few to catch up with after wintery months spent cosied up with a blanket and some wool, so hopefully some sewing makes soon. Though I have managed a seasonally appropriate knitted make recently, and fancy a few other patterns so maybe there will be some summery knitting and crochet too!
