Bad blogger and a quilt for shayla

Can someone please tell me how we are in June already.

This is a very ordinary photo of this quilt it really doesn't do it justice. That is what you get for leaving it to the men in the house. The weather had been bad all week and I had to go to work and Lucas had to take it to give to Shayla, so I left it in the boys hands.
Shayla is one of Lucas' close friends he has suffered from ulcerative colitis over the last 4 years to the point that he has had surgery removing the effected part of his bowel and he now has a colostomy hopefully for a few months at least. The boys gave me some money and I put in the rest. This quilt suits Shayla so much I loved making it.
The boys took it into hospital to him last Saturday.

A quilt for Shayla

I must admit none of the photos are great I have been very time poor at the moment, and the weather hasn't been great.


I think everybody knows Cat in the Hat.
I loved how it turned out.

Every quilt must have a label.
Lucas assures me I don't want to know what T-Rex means!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Every quilt needs a label

I also made some bunting for Sean's cousins little boy Francis and at the moment it is winging its way to Spain with Sean. We saw Sean off at the airport this morning on a 5 week surfing holiday in Spain and Portugal.

What a lovely happy quilt - I havent seen the complete range of Cat in a Hat, but I guess this means that Hatties has some?! I love the bunting, what a great gift idea, particulary good for transit..unlike surfboards! Happy quilting Sue SA.

This is a lively, happy quilt! Hope it will give him comfort, and that he will recover soon. The bunting looks great!

Shay said...

I love that bunting and keep saying I'm going to make some...I really must get on that! Little P's birthday is coming up and I could do a Birthday Bunting...

I love the Dr. Seuss quilt . It's perfect. Usually when one of your kids says you dont want to know something - you really dont. Probabaly best to let that rest.

Hope you get a chance to stop running round like mad thing soon. You know what they say about all work and no play ....

I love that quilt! It is spectacular in your photos so it must be amazing in real life. Oh. And I love the label too. If anyone had any doubt about you being an Aussie the "Wheato" and "Richo" will remove it!

Lynda said...

Fantastic fabric in the quilt and bunting. I'm sure Shayla was thrilled to bits with his quilt.

Fiona said...

What a lovely quilt! I'm sure Shayla appreciated all the time and effort that went into making it and the label makes it very personal.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting.

I agree, these photos do not do this quilt justice. It was truly beautiful in the flesh.
