Surprise arrival

I have some stitching finishes to share, but I will save those for another post and show you my most recent creation...





Our girl wasn't due until 8 August, but surprised us by arriving three and a half weeks early. I had only finished up at work on 12 July, and things started happening the very next morning. At that stage DH and I had no idea how close we were to meeting our daughter. :-) Although she caught us a bit off guard, we are delighted she is here!

We were finally allowed home from hopsital on the Thursday (which was also my birthday) - and there was a gift waiting for Annabelle from our good friend Kathy. Get a look at these handmade bibs and burp cloths. Aren't they amazing?



I have to confess that I still haven't had the heart to get them dirty yet, and visitors are blown away that someone was so kind to hand make these beautiful gifts. Thanks again Kathy! xx

I hope to be back soon to show you my stitching finishes.
