When there's a baby on the way everyone know's you're going to need burp cloths ...
and bibs ...
and wash cloths.
So obviously I got stuck in a made a pile of necessaries ready for my grandson Oliver's birth.
Left to right those fabrics are:
Bears in Woods - Get Together! by David Walker Studios for Free Spirit, Westminster Fibers
Giraffes Special Delivery in White/Tangerine by Quilting Treasures
Lions - Safari Soiree in Teal by Dan Stiles for Birch Fabrics
The Very Hungry Caterpillar Flannel by Eric Carle under license to Andover Fabrics
Squirrels and Nuts - Get Together! by David Walker Studios for Free Spirit, Westminster Fibers
Quite curiously Oliver has never 'possied' as my Dad would have said.
I wondered about this phrase as I've never heard anyone else use it and I've discovered posset is an old English word for semi digested milk brought up by babies after a feed - as well as being a medieval word for a British hot drink of spiced milk curdled with wine or ale. These days posset usually refers to a type of milky dessert.
Before Oliver I've never known a baby not to posset, how fortunate are Jack and Ana and I'm sure Ana can find other uses for this unnecessary pile of burp cloths?!!!
The bibs will no doubt come into their own once Oliver starts on solids
Goldfish in white by Hoodie for Timeless Treasures
Goldfish Bowls by Caleb Gray for Robert Kaufman
Foxes and Scribble from Ed Emberley's Picture Pie collection for Cloud9 Fabrics (left over from making my Foxy Circle Quilt)
and there's always a use for a wash cloth.
Find The Narwhal - Out To Sea Collection by Sarah Jane for Michael Miller Fabrics
Here we are winding after a feed - note the 'like new' burp cloth on my shoulder!
