A jumbled selection

There's a bit of everything in here again; 2 completed quilts and some photos I've been meaning to share for a while.

I had Elizabeth's Song in my head while making this, and was even thinking of using some of the lyrics on the label; but it's about a baby girl, and I didn't want to change them. Instead another line came to mind: 'The ageless perfect symmetry of birth to death to birth". And since I didn't want to call my work perfect, and it is (mostly!) symmetrical...

My other urgent project is also complete and is headed for an Express Post bag tomorrow - hopefully after I get the chance to take some outside photos of it flat - the colour is much better.
Sailing with Dolphins

James while I was taking the photo above:

And over a week late, here is Eleanor on her quilt at 11 months. I had hoped to continue this series through her 2nd year, but it's getting so hard to keep her remotely still, I might have to give up at 12 months!
Plus a few family photos for good measure.
My second little climber (and yes, the chair is down near the ground!)

Thats such a beautiful quilt, with so much thought put in it. I am sure the parents will appreciate it as much as they can at this hard time. You are such a good person!

Such beautiful quilts, and they are all so different from each other. You do great work!

Lovely work again Emma. I do love the sailing with dolpins one too. And the photo of Eleonor all tuckered out!
