Butterfly Silhouette Quilt .. done!

It's very dark and dull outside, but I am so pleased that I have finished this new design, a quilt and matching cushion that Maya and I couldn't resist a quick 5 minute photo shoot.

I let Maya stand on the couch ...


And snuggle up and pretend she was going to go to sleep.

Then we pinned it up on Ayden's pinboard to see if we could get a better pic. Ahhh kids, they make you smile.

Enjoy their enthusiasm while they still have it. They'll make you smile in other ways as they get older. Has Maya claimed this as her own? It's so pretty and girlie.
