I might get working on this pile of colourful fabric today There doesn't seem promise of sunshine so I'll make my own . I have in mind a snowball pattern , that way I can have big sqs,. with the corners as accent colour . Perhaps a little variation sq,. here and there . When I'm sitting in the conservatory and the sun don't shine I will have my own sunny colour . I spend all my spare time in this room mainly because of the good light .
I sat yesterday and finished off these 3 covers for the twins that will be arriving later . The fabric ones are approx 22 inches sq ,. I backed them with white fleece , no batting , blanket stitched the edges and then 1 row of d,crochet . I think just the right size for the little seat thingies . Should be easy to wash and dry . The crochet one is about twice that size . I was told a couple of weeks ago they were about 2 , 1/2 pounds each , so growing nicely . I have made bootees but have a feeling I have wasted my time there . When eyeing up other peoples babies they seem to be encased in an all in one garment , no feet showing plus when looking at baby clothes it seems to be proper little socks .
I like watching the tv programme ,One born every minute . I never cease to wonder that babies seem so active as soon as they are born . They open their eyes and although they cannot see seem to be very aware . When I had my babies it was the fashion to swaddle them in a blanket . Poor little things were bundled like a straight jacket , now they have striped suits on in strong colours with a matching hat . They look like little little escapees from Alcatraz . Fun though isn't it . I smile when I see them all togged up to go home .
