On the mend

Well, all went well and I picked up Tony from the hospital this morning - at least I think it was him. He was sporting two very swollen black eyes, so it could have been anyone. Whoever it is, he gratefully tumbled out of the wheelchair at the hospital entrance and into the car, and he seems to like my cooking, so that's all that matters.

It's a little like Rear Window right now, minus the binoculars. Hopefully we don't have a murderer living next door. All going well, the leg will be mending nicely during the coming week and he will be able to walk around - and take a shower!

To finish off Pink Week, I made a burp cloth for our expected granddaughter.

I guess that's one advantage of knowing if it's a boy or girl - at least you can plan the wardrobe. So now I have made a quilt top (yet to be quilted) and a burp cloth. A soft toy giraffe by Melly & Me is waiting patiently to be made and then I can relax.

I have also been busy this week making a baby gift bundle on commission. The expected baby is a boy and his father is a policeman.

First of all I made the booties:

Then came the bib:

Then the carry bag:

And finally the burp cloths:

I thoroughly enjoyed making this gift bundle and will probably make a couple of sets for my Etsy shop.

I was gobsmacked this morning when I received a message that I had received an award from Bec, whose blog The Small Stuff ( is a firm favourite of mine.

If I gave my acceptance speech I would be here till midnight, so I will be passing this award on to some of my favourites over the weekend. The Stranger in the Room is stirring and it's time to put on the evening meal.

Wow Robyn, this set is fantastic - you should definitely do some for your Etsy shop! I hope the Stranger in the Room is feeling ok - sounds like lots of TLC is in order :P

That is a lovely set Robyn - everything works so well together and, as usual, is beautifully made! More for your etsy shop is a great idea. I'm glad your patient is on the mend.

You have been so busy Robyn. The baby set is just gorgeous and the fabric so appropriate! The burp cloths are just lovely also.
