So, Di pointed me towards post by Madeline Bea photography... I looked at the images and just adored them for many reasons. Here are some of them:
Love the dreamy spring/summer afternoon-ish quality of them, the girls dressed in light airy summer clothes topped with a cowboy hat (just the sort of thing my kids wear on a summers day! ;-) that , or nothing!)
But particulary, I love the little quilt, and its strips of colours. So much so, I went straight to ebay and bought this:
Its called a Jelly Roll, and the material comes pre cut into 2.5" strips (two of each different fabric) the width of the fabric roll. All I have to do is sew em together, quilt and bind. AND I have a couple of old truly vintage embroidered pillowslips from when I was a baby that will perfectly go with these combinations of fabrics. I am not sure quite what I will do with them all when I am finished (apart from a cute photo shoot!) but I am thinking as a throw on a day bed on the verandah would be very cute!
So, I'm looking forward to the mail in the next few days, waiting for this parcel to come in! (and a cd in the mail from Di too, should she EVER get to the post office!) Gotta love the internet, not sure how I managed to get by without shopping online ever before! ;-)
