I have only just located my camera cable – tooooooo many boxes!
So we (Mr B and I with my brother and his girlfriend) went to the Isle of Wight Festival this year…seemingly forever and ever ago, before the house purchase and before my ever lasting cough! I had an absolutely amazing time even though it rained like we were going to need an ark on Sunday – we were lame and scarpered home – the music was fantastic with Pulp and Kings of Leon being my DEFINITE favourites – Seasick Steve was pretty damn good too! We also saw a London band – Stereo Son – who were not bad, might even go see them sometime again!
The terrible photos taken whilst we were drunk/tired/wet/desperate for the toilet…

So today is finally Q day for me, W day for a couple of mine and Mr B’s lovely friends but Q day for me! I finally get to give them the quilt that I made AGES ago and I can post some pictures of it!
I used a jelly roll of Moda Hullabaloo by Urban Chiks supplemented with some of my own vintage fabric - the curtain I had on my bed when I was little (a lovely stripey lilac Laura Ashley print), a stripey grey and red cotton from my Granma and some yellow striped seersucker cotton that I tried (and failed) to make a nightdress out of when I was about 15…but that’s what happens when you don’t use patterns and have no idea what you are doing! …wait, that’s what I still do!
Anyways, hopefully they will love it and get a lot of use and enjoyment out of it, maybe put it on their first baby’s crib! A long way in the future obviously!
So without further ado, a few pictures of the quilt, my attempts at embroidery and my little denim label
