Friday night excitement!!!

I've been busy putting together a quilt for a new addition to the family - expected in the very near future - but he decided to make his way into the world a little earlier.

I put this disappearing nine patch quilt top together whilst at a recent retreat...

I pinched this photo from Chooky's blog!

... and when I came home I traced lots of little animals in the white patches.

I do love this elephant!

Every night I've been madly stitching in order to get the quilt finished. I'm not quite there, but not too far off either.

Didn't get much done over the weekend though - too much time travelling to Sydney to cuddle this precious bundle!!

Thanks Wendy for the virtual sew-in. I love being part of this friendly, supportive group of bloggers so appreciate all your efforts.
