BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT

Well I got my Christmas Present early.....Harper Layla came into the world last Wednesday morning.

As you can imagine, we are all thrilled and both my daughter and Harper are doing wonderfully.  They only stayed in hospital overnight (not like my day when we had a whole week in there!) so let the celebrations begin.

We tend to forget just how small babies are, even though they are perfect in every detail.


I felt that Harper needed a special toy for Christmas and I went searching for a pattern.  I found a lovely bright Fox in a Homespun Magazine.  So for my first attempt at a softy, I fell in love with it



The button eyes were just pinned on in this picture, but I have since changed them to felt eyes so there's no danger of small parts coming off.


Jake loved Mr Fox and was very proud to put it in Harpers room, so now I'm making another one for him to match (in boys colours of course).

Having grandchildren brings so many joys and so much more sewing to do.....I think I need to retire now (hint hint)

I sincerely hope that you have a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends and I look forward to blogging with you in 2016

Excellent Christmas present! I'm impressed the fox was completed in time for Harper's arrival. I always hear how lots of those baby projects get done by the time the baby is starting college...Merry Christmas.
