Beautiful Little Bunnies and Things

As promised, here is a little peek at the quilt I'm starting for my nephew-to-be. I love the Beatrix Potter pictures. They just take you back to a simpler, more innocent time, don't they?

This will be a very small quilt, just the size for a newborn. It can always be used as a wall hanging later after he's outgrown it, if Mommy likes.

Sorry about all the wrinkles. I made the mistake of leaving all my cut fabric out on the dining table when I finally went to bed early this morning. Chloe decided it needed her special touches. When Mr. Sweetie Pie and I were watching a spot of television late last night (actually Inspector Morse on dvd from the library), I couldn't help but admire again how very pretty the yellow angel's trumpet is outside the patio door. We had the door open and it was just so pretty.I tried to capture it for you, it is just so beautiful with only the patio light to illuminate. It fairly glows in the darkness of night. Alas, this is just as close as I could come to it. I tried with the patio light off and with it on, but no great success. Sorry!
We have the windows open again today, though it is a little warmer. I'm enjoying the bird song.
Enjoy your day!
Hugs and kisses,

Oooh, I LOVE Peter Rabbit stuff! I had Peter Rabbit things in our babies' rooms and I've save them -- they're all ready for DIL who probably won't even like them LOL!!!

This is going to be a stunning quilt! I too am a fan of BP, can't imagine anyone not being! How lucky you are to be able to buy that fabric, wouldn't see it here. Have a great Sunday!
