Meet Mia

***warning - lots of photos***

It is the first of March and therefore time for a review of what I achieved in February. There was some sewing for the first 23 days - I finished the quilt for Baby

I made progress on the quilt for a friend's Baby and I finished my Thread Along Quilt top

I made some Dear Jane blocks (you can see them here, here and here) and some Farmer's Wife Blocks

And then on 24th February I went into labour and 12 hours later at 11.26pm we welcomed Amelia Lily to the world. Mia for short, weighed 9lbs 1 oz (4110g). We came home on Thursday after a few days in hospital and now we are juggling feeds, nappies and sleeps.

Three hours old
I love how suspicious she looks in this picture...

We had a very handmade home coming with a knitted cardi and blankie from Grandma - my name was mud as the blanket was over 230 rows each with over 230 stitches plus a border.... I don't knit so I don't really understand - Grandma made sure I understood by the end.

This is my absolute favourite picture

And this photo was taken this morning - five days old

Congratulations :-) And tell Granma you just spent nine full months making a baby with 300 bones and *then* deliver it. Beats a handknit blanket into a cocked hat in terms of technical cleverness.

Leanne said...

She is beautiful, and clearly full of personality already. I love the knitted blanket. I knit and I know that Grandma will not be grumpy for long because she knows that Mia has such a perfect blanket to snuggle under. I bet she is already working on another sweater. I hope you are both feeling fine and enjoying getting to know one another.

Well done Jennie. You made a baby, yet I haven't even managed a block. I blame my teething bundle of joy, this month at least.
