Firstly, Thank you so much for such a lovely welcome back to Blogging. It was heart warming and encouraging. Life continues to be hectic here but I hope everything soon calms down, some balance is restored and I stop fretting in the deep, dark recesses of the middle of the night!
On the upside we have been awaiting the arrival of our nephew,his wife and their two little ones Oliver and Ava from America. Ben met Sarah,fell in love moved to America and now have 2 little children.Such a happy story. But of course we rarely see them.
Ava was born last February and she us such a happy, pretty little girl and growing so fast.
We haven't met her at all yet and not seen Oliver since he was six months old. So, no wonder we are looking forward to seeing them later today!
When Oliver was born I crocheted him a blanket . I wanted to make something different for Ava and asked her Mummy if she would like a Play Mat! A resounding "yes" came across the pond.
So, here we have it already for sweet little Ava!
All tucked up in a bag of pink!
A sailing boat with Velcro parts and a jaunty flag.
And lastly a pretty flower garden with some colour matching fun.
I hope she loves it and it will become a little reminder of her family so far away in the UK.
Have you ever made a play mat or quiet book?
Look no further than Pinterest if you need ideas. It will keep you busy for hours and the hard bit is knowing which ones to choose.
P.S.... Ava loved it!
