A quilt with a touch of throw up

Well here is the quilt I’ve been working on for the bushfire victims. I made the light pink blocks (can you tell????) and put it all together (a mild touch of panic set in when I realised I would have to put it together…I’m such a beginner in my quilting group) but I’m happy with how it turned out with the exception of my very wonky top stitching (which I’m blaming on the polar fleece as you do). Anyway, this afternoon I gave it a quick press and hung it over the lounge for some photos

then I realised there was something wet on the quilt……I washed out 3 marks and couldn’t work out how they got there…I kept asking keira what she put on the quilt. A few minutes later I found some of Finn’s throw up under the ironing board…while I had been ironing he had quickly moved himself into the kitchen and under the ironing board…in a panic I picked him up and moved him to safety and continued to iron oblivious to the throw up left behind……eeeeeeeewwww

fingers crossed I’ve got it all out….it was sweet potato and chicken….not the easiest of foods to remove. And here is the smiling culprit….always smiling!


  1. ‘ve grown. They are gorgeous as always.

    Don’t you just love it when they chuck on you and then coo and gurgle like the sweetest most innocent creatures in the world!!

  2. Hilarious! What I want to know is why do babies throw up so often? I’m constantly getting hit by it!
